The piece de resistence however are there TO DIE FOR desserts. I mean BEYOND. They’re on the pricey side – most are $15-$17 (even if you get them at their to-go shop), but as I learned when skimming the restaurant’s cookbook (Living Raw Food) they’re insanely time-consuming to make. You can shop snacks and cookies on their website. The best part however is that these rich bundles of goodness are guilt-free (relatively speaking at least!). My favorite dessert is their chocolate ganache tart (above left), which is so densely delicious I could lick the above picture! But because nothing is made with egg, milk, or cooked over 110 degrees it’s super easily digestible (how do they get such a melt-in-your-mouth crust when nothing is cooked??). Also worth noting is their cholesterol-friendly Tiramisu (above right)…again no eggs, no insane amount of cream or whole milk – just a fabulous coffee and slightly creamy taste. If you’re up for gourmet-style cooking the restaurant’s owner, Sarma Melngailis, has released her second cookbook, Living Raw Food. Jump for more!
