Tasty, healthy salads
Posted on 01 / 01 / 2012
I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my Cafe Rivva review.
It's an organic frozen yogurt place that had opened in the summer of 2010. The location is a bit unusual, it's on the 3rd floor of a shopping plaza on San Vicente Blvd. You have to know to look for it if you didn't know about it already - I guess that's their one disadvantage. Otherwise, everything was fine.
The salads are made in the morning and presented behind a glass case, you choose what you'd like, and everything is vegetarian, with vegan salads labeled as so. There's a good range of vegan ones. I got to try a sampler of the vegan salads with my friend, and I enjoyed all of them.
Next to the salad bar is the smoothies and frozen yogurt bar. I didn't try the vegan ice cream flavors (by Purely Decadent brand), but I did get to share the raw cacao chocolate smoothie and the kale banana smoothie. Both were good, though the kale banana was sweeter and we liked that!
We sat outside on their comfy padded chairs and enjoyed the sunshine and the open air.
friendly owner, yummy kale smoothie
