Good food, but strange menu
Posted on 01 / 20 / 2014
The first time I had gone to Café Blossom was sometime in June 2013, and I was unimpressed -- much of the menu were soy-based imitations of classic non-vegetarian foods. I've recently gone back (with a Groupon!) and they had completely reworked the menu with creative vegetable dishes, which I far prefer. I ordered a refreshing salad and patties of mushrooms and sea vegetables, followed by an amazing peach cheesecake. However, in spite the improvements to the food itself, the way that the menu is organized seems really weird to me -- it only has "snacks" and "small plates" and some sides, and the small plates drastically vary in size (for example, you can order a single, tiny raw taco for $3 or an entire pizza for $15). If you go, go with at least one other person and split a few of these small plates. Also, the atmosphere is pretty sleek and dim-lit, which is not a bad thing (good for a date!), but I personally prefer more of a granola vibe!
