Raw represented

Sometimes raw food is so boring, like that iceberg lettuce mealy tomato olive oil watery vinegar dressed salad that you find everywhere, that you want to scoff at the raw vegans. Thank you Cafe Love! Making the world a better place and keepin it raw.

If you eat raw food regularly, it is true that you are a special type of veg*n. It is not common because it is already prohibitive to be vegan when dining out. To be raw all the time is limiting unless you are in a metropolitan area or willing to be malnourished when eating out.

I am pleased and surprised and so happy for Durham to have this treasure of raw food. It is light and fresh, vibrant and flavorful. It can be challenging to make sweet potato dishes taste good when raw, the sushi is fab. The prices are very affordable if you are from a big Metropolitan area, but may feel pricy if not used to the costs that go into raw food.

The entrees vary from pad thai to lasagna to pesto wraps, with dessert in the classic raw style of nuts puréed smooth and sweet over a nut coconut base. There are sides similar to salads and things you'd find in most veg restaurants like kale, collards and sweet potato. They def have energy bars and cookies that are tasty and convenient. Because most food is pre-made, it is convenient to grab and go.

There is no seating but the space is friendly, as are the staff. The hours are short, but they have foods in local businesses. I will be back next time in Durham! Love this place!!!!

Pros: 100% vegan, Raw!!!, Cookies and desserts
Cons: Hours, No seating, Plastic containers

    Thank you so much for the nice review! Just wanted to let you know that the containers we use, while they look similar to plastic, are actually certified compostable PLA made from corn :) We get them from Ecoproducts, if you want to check out the company.

    Also, we are in the process of being able to have seating. We have run into some building code issues prohibiting us from having them :)

    Thanks so much for visiting and we look forward to seeing you next time you are in town.

Triangle Raw foods can actually be found in several places throughout Durham, at Bean Traders Coffee, Whole Foods Market, and at “Lomo Market.” Their pad thai, falafel and energy bars are some of my favorites. You will not be disappointed. I am just so grateful to have vegan options to-go throughout the Triangle!

Pros: convenient, always fresh, excellent variety

Nice People, Creative Food

I purchased food from the Triangle Raw Foods truck, as well as from local businesses that carry their products. I am not a raw foodist, and not a huge fan of raw foods, so I am definitely not the best person to judge their food itself; except for the chocolate macaroons, which are AWESOME!

But the people who run the business are super nice, and I appreciate their efforts to get good, whole, healthy foods into the local food scene. They also seem quite creative in their dishes, too, so it's not just "boring" raw foods.

It's a bit pricey, which I understand completely, since it probably costs them quite a bit to keep high standards of the produce they buy, and since they're a small business, but that does make it a bit prohibitive in what some people may be able to invest in on a regular basis. Nevertheless, it's fun to get something from them occasionally for a special treat.

Pros: Incredibly healthy food, Nice people, Great desserts
Cons: Pricey
