All vegan except can substitute honey. Mostly all raw but there are cooked oatmeal dishes and steamed milk for warm beverages. Lots of juices and smoothies. Limited indoor seating for downtown location. Other location is a food cart. more-less

Raw haven

Posted on 11 / 15 / 2014

This place is fabulous if you are stuck in downtown Portland craving raw juices, smoothies and foods. Most of the veg outlets of popular veg lore are in SE and other more hip places in Portland, so, although it is delicious and lovely, it's not a "go-to" place for veg*ns. If interested in Kure, it's likely you'll likely be in the Hawthorne area.

As far as the food offerings go, yes, it's not a cornucopia… except if you are eating raw and vegan and gluten free, then you may greatly appreciate what they have here. They have acai bowls and oatmeal bowls, which seemed very popular. The few (2) benches for eating were filled with people devouring these bowls. There are also a very respectable selection of raw vegan gluten free foods like collard wraps, crackers, and bar foods based on pureed dried fruits with nuts/ coconut/ dates and the like. At the register, there are gluten free baked vegan items like a tasty pumpkin bar or banana coconut bar for a few bucks.

The juices are freshly made and also pre-made. The smoothies can be veganized, easily. I like the add-ons here like almond butter, agave, greens, coconut yogurt, ginger and fruit. The smoothies are not all vegan and not all raw, but the juices are, so be happy with that. It's all gluten free, though. Great ingredients for those interested in maca root, ginseng, acai, cacao nibs, chia and goji berry- many of the most popular healthful additions to our diets. Some more processed add-ins like protein powder, algae, amino acid and superfood blend.

For Portland, it's pricy, yes. For others not from Portland, this place is very affordable considering the high quality.

This place is tasty and makes me happy in a downtown that can be less veg friendly than the rest of Portland. Thanks, Kure!

Pros: Raw foods galore, Plenty of gluten free, Super fresh
Cons: No tables for seating, Not all vegan, Not all raw

This is mainly a juice and smoothie outlet but they have some cooked oatmeal. I had a delicious acai bowl for breakfast and really enjoyed my (hot) matcha latte. I also picked up a raw BLT from Pixie Retreat, which was fabulous. They had other takeaway treats from elsewhere, as well.

Pros: good music
Cons: limited seating
