Fresh, energetic cafe
Posted on 10 / 25 / 2011
What a fabulous experience having an early Friday dinner at Passiflora. Although it was close to closing time when we arrived, the owner & worker energetically welcomed us in, and were 100% knowledgeable about vegan items and recommendations. We sampled the tempeh reuben & homemade burger sandwiches- both were excellent, and the burger was so clearly fresh and organic. We opted for the sourdough flax bread from the local Bantam Bakery, and it was delicious. The sandwiches came with a side of roasted root vegetables, which tasted fresh & local with the perfect seasonings. We ordered a side salad that was fresh, with the house ginger sesame dressing that was delicious enough to sip.
The tea menu was extensive & satisfying. We tried a Passiflora blend called "Joy" that was truly joyful, and a chai with almond milk that was tasty. For dessert we were treated with the matcha tea cupcake- it was the best cupcake I can remember eating in my adulthood. We also drank a smoothie that was specially created for our requests- chocolate almond milk with coconut and frozen banana and decaf espresso- the best smoothie I can remember as well!
I am looking forward to a return to Passiflora, and hope to spend more time lounging in the comfortable seats in the pretty atmosphere, sipping tea, playing games, and browsing the various positive affirmation decks on the cafe tables. The cafe was sparkling clean, bright, and full of warm energy.
Fresh local delicious food, friendly helpful knowledgeable staff, plenty of vegan options
