The "taco meat" salad was delicious. I'm not a vegan, or vegetarian, but it is worth it to check out fresh, tasty food.

I would train my wait staff to do a better job introducing people to the food and explaining the components if they do not seem familiar with it. I would also hire experienced wait staff since you no longer rely on volunteers. Raw vegan may be a selling point, but so is customer service.

The owner doesn't take a salary but donates a portion of the profits to charity.

It was the best raw vegan food I've ever had. My friends that are not vegan also enjoyed the food.

From Our Editors

The volunteer-run Raw Vegan Cafe serves up uncooked gluten-free vegan fare, donating all its profits to Project Hopeful in Joliet. Appetizers on the trim menu include zucchini wraps and mushrooms that, like a black bear’s armchair, come stuffed with pine nuts and fine spices. Served sans nuts, the café's spaghetti comes smothered in a sun-dried-tomato marinara and can be paired with a custom, fresh-squeezed juice of your own creation.

To spread the good word of raw food, the nonprofit teaches foodies and newbies the vegan basics during cooking classes. Instructors arm students with the ingredients, equipment, and recipes necessary to swiftly craft nutritious raw dinners and desserts, saving the cost of ordering takeout from a neighbor’s greenhouse. Main courses such as pizza or bagels shirk flames in favor of a dehydrator, the use of which teachers thoroughly detail. Sweeteners reaped from Mother Nature's garden tinge dessert recipes for delicacies such as chocolate macaroons or lemon squares. Patrons fend off food comas and advancing herds of hungry rabbits to query experts about raw vegan diets during Q&A sessions that conclude classes.
