Flavourful - Edit

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

Rawk1 30 Aug 2016 - 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

Rawk1 30 Aug 2016 - 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.

debbiesmall 06 Jan 2017 - 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.

YES! - Edit

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

Yumm! - Edit

So happy that I decided to try this place! The owner was super friendly and helpful. He let me try a few samples, and everything I tried was amazing!

I decided to order a wrap, and I was surprised how large and filling it was! I can't wait to go back!

A Wonderful Lunch at Rawk Star Cafe! - Edit

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!

OMG Raw Vegan Pizza - Edit

One of the only things I miss since becoming vegan is pizza. This place really fulfills that craving for me. Check it out - so yummy!

Pros: raw, fresh, creative

Cons: price - but not terrible

Bursting with flavor! - Edit

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.

Rawking Goodness!! - Edit

This was the third raw vegan place I have been and I was very happy with EVERYTHING!! Service was awesome had some great conversations with the owners and the food was great. I had a rawk star wrap and a side of their "chili" and it was lip smacking. I had a great smoothie as well and to top off the meal the lucema ice cream with mulberries and goji berries. I would highly suggest this place for anyone raw or vegan or not!!

Pros: Service, Price, Atmosphere

Total gut - Edit

Ich bin Veganerin und habe wahrend meines Urlaubes in Clearwater Beach im Rawk Star Cafe gegessen und war sehr begeistert. Die Leute sind total nett, erklaren alles und das Essen war total gut. Hier wird Vegan Roh (vegan raw) serviert. Ich kann es nur jedem Veganer der hier in der Gegend auf Reisen ist empfehlen.

Liebe Grüsse, macht weiter so!

friendly, delicious raw cafe - Edit

This place was just so great! I had the raw pizza with the rawghetti and it was amazing. Also, when I first walked in the owner was willing to talk with me about the many options on the menu and even let me try some of the things before I ordered anything. The staff is all super friendly and helpful and the food was absolutely delicious, even for a new vegan like me.

Pros: helpful staff, yummy!, beautiful

Cons: slightly pricey

Wonderful for vegans, good for omnis/vegetarians - Edit

I have been to the Rawk Star Cafe three or four times now and each time have absolutely loved my food (I've had their pizza, their rawgetti, lucuma ice scream, jackfruit ice scream, a banana/strawberry/hemp milk smoothie, a cacao smoothie, a slice of raw cheezecake, some raw truffles, several of their wraps, and most recently, their "burger" platter). With that said, two of the girls I've gone with- one who was a junk food vegetarian at the time and another who was an omnivore into healthy eating- were not too fond of their savory dishes, such as the raw pizza. They did, however, adore the smoothies, truffles, and raw ice scream. (All of which are VERY, VERY good!) In terms of service, the Rawk Star is quick and the staff is wonderfully friendly. I highly recommend it, but you may need a certain level of familiarity with healthy food in order to enjoy their meals (excluding sweets).

Pros: Delicious dessert, Healthy food, friendly staff

Cons: Somewhat pricey

They know how to do raw right! - Edit

We stopped here on the way north from Clearwater and it was such a refreshing respite. They have an amazing selection of freshly prepared salads, wraps, raw spaghetti, smoothies, juices and also raw products to purchase. We had the "egg salad" wrap which was wrapped in a collard green. It was so good and really didn't taste like some boring nut pates I've had before, it tasted more like real egg salad! (or at least more like a tofu egg salad since I don't eat eggs). And my husband had a salad topped with fresh slices of avocado and their raw house dressing which I think was olive oil, apple cider vinegar and herbs. We also got a blueberry "cheesecake" to go and it was heavenly. They really know how to make raw taste good. The staff is super knowledgeable and friendly too.

Pros: expert raw preparation, fresh food, wide selection

Cons: on a busy highway

wonderful cafe - Edit

I recently went here and had the hibiscus iced tea and the raw pizza. Both were phenomenal but the pizza was actually gorgeous to look at, let alone eat. Other patrons there had smoothies, salads and wraps and everything looked good. I plan on frequenting there once a week to enjoy the food and support their business.

Pros: very friendly staff, fresh food, great presentation

Cons: more items on the menu would be nice
