Café Bliss

About a week ago I mentioned that there were only two genuine vegetarian restaurants in Victoria. I didn't know about Café Bliss, which is not only vegetarian, but is vegan, organic and RAW. In short, you can't get any closer to natural eating without getting down on all fours and grazing. But it's not just natural, it's good. In that display case just next to friendly counter-person Tyler, on the left hand side of top shelf is a platter of Bliss Bars, one of which melted in my mouth. I washed it down with a jar of Mo's Morning Mocha, a delicious warm mixture of cold-pressed coffee, cacao, coconut, hemp, cinnamon, maca, and nut cream. Despite a rather gloomy black exterior, the inside of Café Bliss is beautifully bright and pleasant and I propose to return soon to sample more of the food. It's downtown, 556 Pandora Street, opposite Market Square and just up the street from the Swans Hotel.

You know, this explains everything I need to know about why you can't keep warm in the winter.

As you might guess, I love the composition with the menu boards. We have some not unlike this, and I wish I had thought of it first.

I'd like the soup special, please.

Very funny.

I can't stop picturing people going to a cafe/restaurant and graze at the all natural, organic and raw foods.

The photos made me want to eat something fresh.

Cream of butternut sounds good. I too like the way you showed the menus.

I'm intrigued by Liquid Sunshine - such an unexpected flavor combo, with each being good, assertive, and fragrant individually.

USelaine beat me to the punch with the point about the cold.

I can endorse orange, celery and ginger as a combo, although I like to throw in a lemon as well to mix things up a bit.
