What You'll Get
It can be tough to pick out the eggs of cage-fed chickens from their free-range counterparts, and even tougher to discern an organic head of lettuce from a genetically engineered head of lettuce with the body of a lion. Save the time you'd spend deliberating with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of vegan and vegetarian fare and drinks at Riverwest Co-op and Café on East Clarke Street.
The café serves up made-to-order vegan and vegetarian breakfast fare along with lunch and dinner dishes prepared with predominantly organic and locally grown ingredients. Roll out on the healthy side of the bed with a pair of yawn-obliterating vegan pancakes filled with your choice of organic blueberries, coconut, bananas, or vegan chocolate chips paired with local maple syrup ($6.50). A hale and hearty take on the classic sandwich, the café's popular Phamous Philly comes stacked with homemade seitan, grilled peppers and onions, and a choice of dairy or vegan cheese ($7.95). Organic green salads strut to the table piled high with the season's most fashionable vegetables ($4.50–$7). Take in the spring thaw on the café's outdoor patio and place bets on the odds of finding lost mittens while sipping slowly on one of the co-op's organic smoothies, which comes in varieties such as the energizer, a blend of orange juice, blueberries, and fair-trade bananas ($4.50).
Open since 2004, the café is attached to the Riverwest Co-op grocery store. The health haven is stocked with organic produce, bulk foods, vegetarian and vegan groceries, along with an organic bakery whose wafts of chocolate goods and fresh-baked, from-scratch breads tempt health-food fanatics and wheat-sniffing dogs for miles around.
More than 25 Yelpers give Riverwest Co-op and Café an average of 4.5 stars, TripAdvisors give it an average of 3.5 owl eyes, and 95% of 43 Urbanspooners recommend it. More than 1,800 Facebookers like it.
