Green Wave Cafe
Although each of their dishes is made without gluten, animal products, or refined sugar, Green Wave Cafe proves that raw, vegan food can tempt palates. The eatery earned laurels in 2010 for being the Best Raw Food Restaurant according to the New Times Broward-Palm Beach for flavorful dishes "that actually satisfy." Among such edibles is a vegan chocolate ice cream that tastes close to "the real thing."
All dishes are made onsite daily, and the only cooked dish on the menu is the soup of the day. The hummus sandwich is made from chick peas sprouted in pure ionized water. The lettuce taco boats, which the staff calls one of its most popular dishes, include with housemade guacamole and vegan pâté rich with Mexican seasoning. Raw-food enthusiasts can also fill their baskets at the Monday farmers' market or earn raw-food certification with cooking classes.
