Great find, awesome owner!

We jogged to Raw on da Porch from our hotel on Paradise Island during a recent trip to the Bahamas (after reading reviews on Happy Cow!). It was a bit far, but didn't take too long running...just note that the roads are often narrow and without sidewalks, so be careful if you're coming in that way!
As for the cafe itself, it was extremely charming. It's a tiny little kitchen with a little patio and tent outdoors for enjoying the food and good company. Chrissy, the owner, is very friendly and laid back, and seems very dedicated to spreading the message of wholesome nutrition and health to her fellow Bahamians, travelers, and friends. She uses the term "release" instead of
"lose" to refer to shedding weight because she "doesn't want to find
the weight back," which I think is pretty neat. You get a great vibe from talking to Chrissy, and she is generous with her free food samples!
In the end we ended up buying a green smoothie and scrumptious wraps for the road, but got to try out some mock-tuna dip and ice cream while there as well. It was slightly pricey but worth it for supporting this great little establishment, and the quality was top notch! Definitely a hidden gem worth visiting.
great raw options, friendly staff, unique selection
iffy roads, very small, pricey
