Tiny little cafe type restaurant with vegan, vegetarian and gluten free fare. Also have beer, wine and nice happy hour alcohol too and juices/smoothies. We went in for lunch on a Saturday. Not too packed which was good. Food takes a while to prepare. Cobb salad and frittata were excellent as us their tofu which topped the salad. Curried soup... More

The people working here are very friendly and the service was amazingly fast. I loved the "brie" and fig jam appetizer, the peach margarita (small but VERY tasty), the grapefruit and basil mocktail, and the desserts were absolutely delish! (The cheese cake was better than any "real" cheese cake I have ever tasted, with a wonderfully moist texture.) However, I... More

Thank god for Blossoming Lotus, one of the few classy, clean, restaurants in Portland that make you want to go time and time again. Their dishes are creative, simple, and so so delicious. I ordered live raw nachos and they were so filling, creamy, and fresh! My husband got a dish with soy curls which were out of this world...and... More

Let me preface this by saying I am a vegetarian not a vegan. Most of the dishes are vegan and are a bit too minimalist for me. That being said there are some choices for those who eat cheese and eggs. Food is creative and everything is very fresh and flavorful. They do have a nice selection of wine and... More

I want to shout my review in all caps. Everything about this restaurant is special. It's small -- but we were seated quickly each time we went. It's crowded but not bustling. Even the noise level was surprisingly pleasant given the crowd. Staff is great -- and we visited this restaurant 3 times with consistent outstanding experiences! I almost hate... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner here. It is such a treat have such a wide array of vegetarian, vegan, raw, allergen friendly choices on offer. I enjoyed my coconut tofu entree. All the plates served to other diners nearby looked great too. I enjoyed it so much I may try to get back there for another meal before my business... More

We have been a couple times with family who are vegan and vegetarians; hubby and I eat mostly at the low carb end of the food choice spectrum so have to ask lots of questions. I was looking forward to the cauliflower "steak" but it wasnt offered recently. The "Cobb" salad was good, with coconut "bacon". Blue "cheese" dressing was... More

As a raw foodist, I was completely delighted by the raw options offered here. Though few in number, the quality was outstanding. I loved the Maki rolls, live nachos, and golden beet ravioli. Not to mention the deliciousness that is their Maca Mocha smoothie. You cannot make a mistake eating at the Blossoming Lotus. Some of the best raw food... More

My daughter and I ate here twice on a recent visit to Portland and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. For lunch I had the 'brie' and fig on ciabatta, absolutely satisfying with just enough salty and sweet flavors. My daughter had the taco plate which was very good. Friday night dinner I had the Thai salad - fresh, crisp, and just... More

Blossoming Lotus is an amazing vegetarian restaurant. So wonderful, in fact, that I would eat there everyday if I could… I had the Thai salad and it made me want to move to Oregon! Great staff, exceptional food that is incredibly tasty, fresh, and lovingly presented, and all of that in a very casual setting. FABULOUS.
