A funky find

Had delicious be bim bap and chocolate pudding at this very welcoming vegetarian restaurant. Great casual spot, populated, it seemed, mostly by locals.

The vegetarian offerings were delicious and there was much for a carnivore like myself to choose from and enjoy!

This restaurant and bakery serves food that even my red meat eating father would have liked! A new eggplant Parmesan is delicious. The seitan tacos are fantastic and fresh, and my go-to Thai peanut noodles with tofu are better than at my favorite Thai restaurant. Everything is always fresh and so delicious. We even love their regular and vegan baked... More

We love this vegetarian restaurant and their food, always great quality and never disappointing. It's a bit on the pricy side but not even close to some of the fine dinning French restaurants. They provide excellent proteins for people who do not eat meat, and many choices of international cuisines. We asked for an entree that was previously on menu,... More

Ate here with a group of 5, I was the only vegetarian. The dishes were plentiful to choose from and the portions were quite large. Service was OK, nothing to rave about. The ingredients were fresh and the presentation was pleasing. We thought the meals were well-priced as most of the dishes were labor-intensive. I will return!

So heading to SPACE for a show and decided to drop into Blind Faith on a whim. Not knowing it was a vegetarian restaurant, because I am not a vegetarian. But my daughter is, so I decided I would be the one to make an adjustment instead of having my daughter be the one to make the adjustment. So tried... More

Not sure why I missed finding this place each time I search for a vegetarian option. We were impressed. God and healthy vegetarian options and the sizes are extra generous. We were embarrassed when the owner told us they were there for almost 20 years already. Cannot wait to come back!

A healthy place to enjoy a carefully designed menu for every day meals. A good place to meet friends without putting on the pounds.

I really enjoy the food at Blind Faith Cafe. The sweet potato fries and the brie & apple sandwich and all of their smoothies are delicious. However, the prices are a bit high for the portion size. That being said, if you are looking for lots of vegitarian/vegan/gluten free options, this is one of the better restaurants to go!

This semi-upscale restaurant caters to all foodies, including families with small children. Having been a neighborhood staple for years, they have managed to stay ahead of the curve with creating new dishes and even giving their interiors a beautiful facelift. A must for all vegetarians and those who are not!
