“What a Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

The first raw food restaurant experience of my life. We dined so well, with no guilt! Food was delicious, service first-rate. Perfect if you've recently overindulged and want to return to healthier eating. Reasonable prices.

“Great food, slow service & pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

The raw food experience at Present Moment Cafe is not to be missed. Even if you are not a vegetarian, you will enjoy the creative dishes here. However, the price are high for someone as budget minded as I am, and the service is very slow.

“Vegan Magic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Please do not dismiss this restaurant because its "vegetarian" or "vegan"...its food truly has care and consideration taken into each bite. Savory, satisfying, and staff that was refreshing, this Cafe is a must-eat! My mom and I were going on a gluten, corn, soy, and diary- free diet and wanted to try this place out.

Try: BROCCOLI CHEDDAR SOUP - they use nutritional yeast to give it the cheesy taste and it was warm, creamy, and you'd never think there was no cheese.
SUNRISE BURGER - made of a combo of veggies and nuts, I would call it more of a pate or spread but mixed with their sprouts and tomato it was crunchy and hefty, such a cool experience to eat!
ZUCCHINI PASTA - no gluten here! All zucchini and an alfredo made of pine nuts. One of the most refreshing and cleansing bites i've had.

Sometimes the things they make are just amazing, chemistry and art mixed. My hats off to the chef

“Wow! And we're not vegetarians!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

After 4 weeks of overeating on vacation, we wanted something lighter for dinner----not always easy to find in a tourist town. We consulted Tripadvisor and were really happy with our dinner here! Loads of fresh flavor, smaller (but adequate) portions, and imaginative dishes. I will see about getting their cookbook for my vegan buddy and hope she'll cook for me :-). Anyhow, deeeelicious food and a very charming atmosphere---highly recommended!

Oh, should mention this is not in the tourist zone--you'll need a car--parking is in back. The address is in the 200 block, which might lead you to believe it's two blocks from the main part of town, but it's more like a mile or more from old town.

The Present Moment Cafe is a vegetarian restaurant, but the food is amazing, full of flavor and life. They use the freshest ingredients and display a masterful creativity for mixing flavored and textures.
