Restaurant Review: Superfresh Organic Cafe

There's a new vegan restaurant in town.....well, not in my town, but close enough.....called Superfresh Organic Cafe. To be honest, they're not exactly new, but they were much smaller and in a different location before. So I'm going to pretend it's completely new! It is 100% vegan, though they do use some honey.

It has very nice decor inside.....albeit not a huge place. Tall ceilings, wood floors, nice calming colors. They didn't have a sign outside, so it's not obvious that it's there. I did see a hanger for a sign, so perhaps the sign is coming shortly! It's in a great location, right in downtown Brattleboro, VT, near the river, and next to the Food Co-Op.  There's a wonderful view of the big brook out the back windows. It's not a huge place and it only has 2 tables that seat more than 2 people, so plan accordingly.

We walked in and ordered at the counter. They had a limited menu for opening day, but online they've got a pretty extensive menu! To me, it looks like this place is about 80% raw. But they do have some cooked grains, beans, soups, etc. It looks like a super small kitchen there, but I think they've prepared some of the foods (nut cheeses, sauces, etc.) ahead of time, so there's not much to "cook".

I ordered a Green Goddess juice and it was awesome! Cucumber, celery, apple, kale, lemon, and ginger:

Then I got the raw pesto pizza made with a dehydrated crust, pesto, cashew cheeze, greens, tomato, fresh herbs, and brazil-nut parm:


S ordered a basic wrap in a brown rice tortilla, with a chipotle dipping sauce that was excellent:

My dad ordered the Butternut Squash Bisque, along with a bowl of brown rice, black beans, and veggies, also quite tasty:

My mom ordered a quesadilla, made with Daiya cheese. I think I'll get that next time!

So as you can see, it was all delicious. It's not cheap, but most raw places are not cheap. There were a few desserts on the counter, but I opted out this time. I'm waiting for some vegan and gluten free cupcakes!!

If you live anywhere near Brattleboro, VT, this is definitely worth the trip! I'll be going back, even though I live an hour from there (a great place to meet up with my parents!)
