great raw food

I'm really surprised I had not yet written a review for this place, been coming here for ages.
I've really liked all the raw vegan dishes offered here, especially the raw pastas. Some of the desserts here are excellent, try the dream pie. They've done a great job of fixing up this place, especially the back patio.
My only gripe is that this place is supposed to be about health, yet they offer goats cheese. additionally not everything is vegan, as bee products are used. Also, everything is in to go containers, and sometimes the dishes are a little to cold to eat right away.

Pros: awesome desserts, great raw food
Cons: dairy and honey on menu, mostly pre-made

I had read about this place opening on HappyCow, so I went in for a look. Here's my LifeFood Organic review.

This cafe took over the location of the now defunct Raw Star. The new people re-painted and gave a make-over to the space, making it look modern, inviting, and even spacious even though it's a small space (high ceiling, white paint).

The counter brims with all sorts of goodies: packaged snacks, chilled raw pies/cakes, bottle drinks, and assorted prepared foods both raw and a few cooked.

I got a bottled carrot/ginger/lemon juice and a slice of raw chocolate cake/pie that was amazing.

The prices are quite high, but it's supposed to be all organic and hand-crafted (example: raw cake slice was $10).

I am looking forward to returning to try the raw food, like a raw wrap and the raw noodles... and definitely more raw cake slices!

Pros: must try raw pie/cake
