If it says tacos I’ll buy it. I did ask what they recommended and they said Thai and they were not wrong. Best lunch I’ve had in months. Thank you!!

Pros: Options, Service , Location

Amazing crackers

The owner was very welcoming. They gave us samples of some items to help us pick. We had southwestern tacos, Alfredo zucchini noodles, and dessert. The best thing we’re the crackers. Absolutely delicious. The dessert was great. The zucchini noodles were good. The tacos were good. I will be back soon!

Pros: Great selection , Friendly staff

My favorite raw restaurant!

Their smoothies and desserts are out of this world! My favorite treats the orange screamsicle smoothie, the bulletproof cashew energy balls, and their raw chocolate bars. All their entrees are raw and great, I love the egg-less pate wrap and the raw pizza slice. I always feel great after eating here and the staff is so friendly and kind.

Pros: Superfood smoothies, Raw entrees and desserts, Friendly staff

Amazing Raw Food

First time in and prior to going I wasn’t sure about their menu. The owner immediately started explaining the menu, giving us samples and helping us decide. We got the Rawghetti in the alfredo sauce, the Raw Pizza Slice, and the Raw Tacos.

The rawghetti was by far my favorite thing we got. It was so good. We also got a dessert item which was really good. I can’t wait to go back and try other items from them.

Pros: Owner is great!, Raw items are creative and delicious

Wow. Just wow!

This place us seriously amazing!! The flavors are mind blowing. It's hard to believe that you can get the complexity of flavors with raw food! I ate at their St Pete location twice before coming here and this location is just as good and hada couple menu items the other didn't. The staff is really friendly too.

Always a SOLID go-to option.

Have visited here many times in the last couple years. I haven’t had anything I disliked from here, but my favorite item is the raw tacos! The smoothies are always phenomenal, as well.

Amazing food and owners

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and I immediately changed my diet to alkaline which is almost completely vegetarian - 80% - which is what led me to this wonderful place. Not only is the raw pizza and cacao milkshake amazing but the education - if you’re interested - that goes along with the food here is wonderful from both owners, they’re happy to answer any questions you may have and they offer samples if you’re new to raw food. Buy the owner’s book when you stop in.

Pros: Excellent food, Excellent clean atmosphere, Educational

Love This Place!

I love this place! I know I can go here and get a yummy raw food meal every time. There is nothing I've eaten here that I didn't enjoy.

Knowledgeable and friendly staff. I go whenever I can, as it's not conveniently located to my home or workplace.

Pros: Excellent raw food options, Friendly staff, Great place to shop for {raw} vegan items

Cons: Location

WONDERFUL Raw Vegan Food!

This place is absolutely delicious, and the Rawk Star team is so incredibly friendly. They really care about what they are doing and getting to know their customers. They make raw vegan food fun and exciting. This place is a refuge for those who are vegetarian and vegan in an area that lacks decent options, but also, it's a great option for those that aren't plant based. My mom moved here for a treatment center, and I know she will be coming here at least twice a week and she isn't even plant based!!

The rawkster wrap is so good.. and also their taco special.

I couldn't recommend Rawk Star enough - 10/10!!

Pros: Excellent Food, Reasonably Priced, Friendly Staff

Cons: None!

At first I was skeptical, but oh my tastebuds we were in for a surprise!
The rawkster spread is my favorite.
Who would have thought that wraps in collard greens would be so yummy too. My husband came with me and he even said that he was surprisingly happy with his wrap as well.
Definitely would go back again.

Pros: Vegan, Excellent food, Friendly staff

Cons: Small

Vegan juices , salads, cakes & pastries not made fresh in store...vegan cakes ordered online sold in cafe

Pros: Vegan

Dear Debbie Small, we think you may have posted this response on the wrong Vegan Cafe. First, here at Rawk Star Cafe, every one of our desserts, cakes, chocolates, puddings, etc. are made in house, from scratch with all organic ingredients. At Rawk Star we make all our menu and dessert items with much love and care. Also we do not make Vegan juices here, that is why we think you might have been referring to another place. Any way, please do come by and enjoy one of our original items any time. Thank you! Rawk Star Cafe

initial encounter was very welcoming and helpful. food looked sloppy and was mushy. definitely had much higher expectations. would not recommend but would not refuse to eat here again

Dear the chill banana, in six years of business, that is the very 1st time our food has been referred to as sloppy and mushy. I am glad we were welcoming and helpful. If we did not meet your expectations, we are sad to hear that. Be well and maybe you will try us again some time.

Totally agree. Read my response. Also when I was there there was no menu. Was told "what do you want i can make you anything " nice, but overall is disappointing.

Absolutely loved this place - what a gem to find this here in Palm Harbor. The food is created consciously - brimming with positive energy. The staff were super friendly, making it an all round enjoyable experience.
We enjoyed the raw burger platter and the rawghetti - both were delicious and vibrant.
The desserts were out of this world. We chose raw ice cream and key lime cheese cake. Divine!
An excellent place to stop off for your raw super foods, with ample products to purchase.
Sit in or take out.
We'll definitely visit every time we are in town.

Pros: conscious food, super friendly staff, excellent choice

A Wonderful Lunch at Rawk Star Cafe!

Nearly noon, visiting Dunedin, and my wife and I were getting hungry. Checking Happycow, I found we were just 15 minutes from an organic raw restaurant! (Or would have been with accurate guidance, but the directions showed it south of Tampa Rd., instead of just north, where it actually is.) There's a counter along one wall, with some seating and large menu boards on the wall, and small tables along the other wall. As we stood looking at the menu boards, one server pointed out that the other server was reviewing the menu with another customer, so we joined the seminar. She gave us each small tastes of several menu items - very tasty! - reviewed menu options and answered any questions we had. Like many raw restaurants, some items were composed largely of nuts, while we prefer veggie ingredients as well. Not to worry, they have that, too. I had the Raw Burger Platter and my wife ordered the Raw Pizza Slice, both of which had lots of vegetables and more seeds than nuts, and lots of flavor and texture. The Burger Platter had a unique "dehydrated onion ring" on each of the two small sandwiches, which was really more like a small onion slice dried to a surprisingly crispy state. When the owner brought our order, he advised that even though they set it on top, like a garnish, he likes it when it's put inside, and I agree! The pizza slice came practically hidden under an avalanche of shredded carrot (a good thing, we like carrots), and the thin crust was so crisp that when I tasted it I wondered aloud about how long they must have dehydrated it to achieve that texture.

The server was delightful - she brought small samples of their delicious Orange Screamsicle smoothie while we waited - and the owner was friendly and fun. The prices are not low, but very reasonable given the labor- and time-intensiveness of raw food, and the quality and taste of the food. I just wish Rawk Star Café was close to where we live!

Pros: Food quality and taste, Friendly, inviting people, Reasonable raw food prices

Cons: Not near my house!

Bursting with flavor!

This was my very first ever raw vegan meal at a restaurant. I ordered the tacos and was amazed that they were the most delicious tacos I had ever had, and without meat or dairy!! Definitely worth visiting again and again. The owners are friendly and if they aren't too busy they are happy to chat and answer any questions you have about raw eating. They also have a small selection of gourmet raw vegan packaged items available for purchase.
