Charming and fun, she caters and has home/hotel delivery. I also picked up several of her published recipe books that I dearly... read more

My fast was ended with the delicious spring rolls with peanut sauce. I highly recommend the Raw cookbook as well. The ingredients are put together to achieve flavor,... More

Cassidy is full of character and so is her restaurant and menu!! This is a memorable experience full of love and charm and flavor!

I've known Cassidy for over 20 years and Paul for well over 10 and just recently was able to finally surprise them down in CR at the Pura Vida pantry. Paul greeted us with his version of I think it was gatorade which was a delicious and refreshing concoction of organic fruits and veggies. Still being a semi carnivore and... More

Pura Vida Pantry is a true piece of paradise. The location, a cozy little corner, has a wonderful and ecclectic feel to it. Nestled in a cute little neighborhood community, the pantry offers both a friendly and familiar atmosphere. The truly raw, vegan cuisine was a treat to the sense,from the refreshing juice down to the raw truffles! My husband... More
