Solid, creative food but slow service

I liked my meal at Crudessence and enjoyed their variety compared to other raw restos. Not heavily spiced, I was happy it wasn't uber salty or sugary. Nicely balanced but I could see others calling it more on the bland side.
I recommend the Kombu mojito (pineapple, mint, lemon and home-brewed kombucha). I also enjoyed "Le Fairmount" which was a nice bagel with a smoked salmon spread with capers and tomatoes. I was a bit perplexed that it was delivered deconstructed but I assembled it at my end.
I really appreciated the diversity plates, which allowed us to sample the appetizers and desserts. I also enjoyed their egg pate which was nice in the breakfast burrito. From the dessert sampler, sadly the blueberry cheesecake was not included however the tiramisu was incredible (and I usually don't like tiramisu).
The service was slow.. which always boggles me at raw restos since nothing needs to be cooked.
creative food, delicious, not overly seasoned
price, slow service
