I had read about this place on Happycow and decided to stop in on my way from San Francisco to Los Angeles 2 weeks ago. Here's my Bliss Cafe review.
It's a very little but cozy cafe with a few high tables for seating. There is a glass counter by the register where you can see what the day's raw desserts are in addition to baked savories like quiche and spanikopita. Everything is vegan.
On one side of the wall is a large menu. The rest of the walls hang colorful paintings and images of Hindu (Indian) god and goddess images.
My husband and I shared the peace plate, sweet potato fries, a quiche, a green kale and banana smoothie, and a raw chocolate avocado pie for dessert.
The peace plate was huge and everything on it was delicious: organic brown rice, a salad with sprouts and sunflower seeds, chickpea flour breaded eggplant in a marinara sauce, spicy pineapple salsa, and a yellow vegetable-potato curry.
My husband liked the quiche a lot. I liked the house-made hummus it came with. The sweet potatoes were well-seasoned with herbs. Great green smoothie. Yummy chocolate pie (though a bit sweet for me personally).
Overall, we both thought this was one of the better meals we've had on our SF-LA trip.
delicious fresh food, good vibes, affordable
needs better ventilation
