First Review by philblais

one of the best meals I've ever had - Edit

We wish we could stick around longer to sample more of this great menu. The gazpacho was superlative. The dressing on the lime avocados was perfect. The combination of flavors and presentation of the Fresh Addiction burger was stunning. Absolutely the best raw food restaurant we've ever been too. These people know how to combine flavors and come up with winners. Totally recommended.

Pros: vegan raw food that completely transcends the norm

Cons: we don't live close enough

Blend of cultures - Edit

This place is very unique because they feature Ukrainian foods in addition to more common Western dishes.
I wish the portions were bigger. However, you end up having room for dessert so in a way that works out well. I enjoyed pretty much everything I tried there. As for cakes, I recommend tiramisu.

My only issue is their service. They are friendly but a most times that I was there it was also really really slow. One time the server spent a bunch of time chatting with someone else while we just sat there. That was some time ago (last year) so I hope the service has improved since then.

Pretty good - Edit

Had a late lunch here yesterday. Two of us shared the mini burgers and the Ukrainian combo. Everything tasted good. The tiramisu was delicious! Staff was very polite and friendly, but service was a little slow. There was a bit of a gap between the soup and the main. They didn't give us water the whole time we were there. Not sure if it was supposed to be self-service.

Pros: good food, friendly staff

Cons: service a little slow

Wow your friends! - Edit

I am not a raw foodist. Though mindful of the healthfulness of dishes, my main quest is delicious food.

No word of a lie, the chef/owner of Indigo is a food *genius*. Without exception, the reaction whenever I've taken anyone there for a meal has been.... surprise --surprise because the food so far surpasses expectations. That surprise reaction makes it especially fun to bring friends for the first time. Everyone says they will come back again.

When it comes to raw food, I'm not sure I've ever had better. I confess I've never tried a smoothie or other drink there, but each food dish is at least an 8 out of 10.

Every bite of the raw pizza is worth it. The nut cheeses are to die for. The perogies are delightful. The soups are wonderful--I cannot seem to make a mushroom soup at home that good. The desserts are especially fabulous, particularly the coconut cream pie.

My only wish would be that the food menu were larger so I could have more unbeatable food adventures there. I cannot bring you all there personally to experience it, so you'll have to take my word for it and go on your own.

Pros: Delicious. , Creative. , Extremely healthful.

Cons: Not all seating is comfortable.

I've only had the opportunity to try the mushroom soup and portobello burger, but they were both very good. Our server was very patient and informative. I'm looking forward to going back to try the pirogues and borscht.

Always great food! - Edit

It's not a super fast service so bring some time but it's worth the wait. Killer portobello burger and Caesar salad. The portions are well sized and allow to be shared.

Amazing food, great atmosphere - Edit

Let me preface this by saying that I am a vegan who does not particularly enjoy raw vegan food, and that I was dining at Indigo Age Cafe with a friend who wasn't very keen on eating vegan food. Despite this we both enjoyed the meal immensely!

We ordered the mini burgers, pirogues and spring rolls to share, all of which were very tasty. We also had the rose kombucha and avocado mayhem smoothie, which were excellent.

The sever was very nice and the restaurant itself is tremendously cute and atmospheric. Overall a fantastic dining experience.

My Happy Place - Edit

I eat raw and this is my favourite cafe to fulfill that that need. The food is always freshly made and delicious, the service is friendly and acccomodating, the atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming and the menu is varied. For those who like to eat cooked food there are some pleasant healthy and yummy choices as well.
For your sweet tooth there are raw cheesecakes, raw chia puddings and mouth-watering raw chocolates.
Personally I really enjoy the carrot ginger soup. I am also a huge fan of their kale chips!

My Second Home - Edit

I love this place... If not for my busy work and travel schedule I would eat here three times a day. I love the ambiance, the exceptionally friendly staff and the sweetest owner Lovena. Food here is always fresh, tasty, flavourful with perfect texture and beautifully presented! Everyone I brought here is always pleasantly impressed. Highly recommend this place... As much as I try to avoid gluten I can't say no to their potato pirogies! All dishes are amazing!

Pros: Flavourful, Consistent, Beautifully Presented

Neat place for raw fans - Edit

First I have to admit that - since I ain't a huge fan of raw food - being there twice each time I had only a cooked soup.
The borscht was quite good, they went easy on cooking, yet the taste seemed a bit to indifferent to. As opposed to that the mushroom soup which really won me over with its aromatical taste. Portions had decent size.
Other than that there was a nice atmosphere in this souterrain venue, and staff was very friendly.
There is a refrigerator with some freshly squeezed juices and some yoghurts for take-away (mainly) on site as well.
Lots of healthy food books were lying around.

First raw food we've liked (other than dessert) - Edit

Normally we stay away from Raw, as we're junk food vegans and just don't really enjoy the food. Desserts are different, who doesn't like some raw vegan cheesecake?

You would almost miss the place if you weren't looking for it. Very small entry way some stairs, but it was next to the vegan pudding spot so we knew to head over here.

Food was surprisingly good, especially considering it's not normally our thing. Prices were high for what you get: $9 for an avocado with mango/tomato salsa on top. The little pizzas on the sesame crust were very very tasty though.

It was very very hot/humid in the restaurant. Not sure if normal for them?

Pros: Food was surprisingly good, Very friendly staff

Cons: On the expensive side for some items, HOT in the restaurant
