This place is amazing on so many levels. I had an incredible experience here as a celiac. Lots of GF options, knowledgeable servers, a variety of food and wine, and a superb dining experience. My husband and I will be dining here daily as we visit LA this week.
I just discovered this place a few days ago and already I'm back to try more items on the menu. I LOVE the fact this place is gluten & dairy free and have so many delicious items on the menu. Most restaurants I go to only have a handful of items I can eat on the menu, which can be a real bummer. The selections I can eat are usually boring and tasteless at most places. Not here. I've already tried the Sun Nachos which are delicious. I tired the 1/2 corn chips, 1/2 Jicama chips. The jicama is a little different but still surprisingly good. It's crispy and fresh tasting (the jicama is not baked or fried, it's fresh jicama). I was a little concerned that the vegan food would not leave me satisfied, but the Nachos were a large potion and pretty filling. The vegan "cheese" and "sour cream" were also really tasty. Today I had the Mac & Cheese with "chorizo". It was served in a little iron skillet and was pretty filling. The cheese was delicious. A nice consistency and pretty rich in flavor. The serving size was decent for one person, but I could see ordering this and something else for two people to share. I also ordered the Chocolate Mint Shamrock shake to go. Eventually I want to try the pizza, I hear the tacos are good and they have a nice selection of shakes and other desserts including pumpkin pie and key lime which I really want to try on future visits. It is so wonderful to have the variety and freedom to order almost anything on this menu despite my allergies without fear of getting sick. Although the items are a little pricy, it's a small price to pay for eating healthy, delicious food that won't leave me doubling up in pain a few hours or days after. Thank you SunCafe Organic. I highly recommend this place.
This little gem of a restaurant is located right near universal studios/Harry potter world. Has a mainly gluten free organic menu, with many gluten free choices. Owner and kind staff proffered two free gf cupcakes for my birthday girls. Thank you Suncafe!
love love love this place! been a handful of times for brunch and never gotten sick. I was skeptical about going there again because I'm breastfeeding I usually need protein to feel full/satisfied these days. we ordered a portabella burger with mashed potatoes and the raw lasagna and split the meals. oh. em. gee. every bite was phenomenal, and I don't know what they put in those mashed potatoes but they're addicting and I could eat them every day. I was beyond satisfied... we brought dessert home with us but we weren't even hungry for it until the next day.
Ok- so, this place wasn't bad. I was expecting more based on the reviews I read, it was tasty, but not as good as other places like it in LA. Not cheap, and for a slightly lower price you could go to Sage, my all time favorite in LA, to get vegan gluten free options (same type of restaurant) but in my opinion tastier, more options, and just better all around. Had the Mac and cheese which was tiny and not as good as Sage's Mac and cheese, and the curry which had undercooked garbanzo beans in it. All took a long time to come out. Also had the cookies and crime cheesecake which was delicious, big enough for two people, and we still couldn't finish it. It was good, but there is better and at the same time more affordable.
This restaurant was exceptional!! We tried this place while visiting the area and ended up eating dinner here 3 nights in a row. They have a cute patio area and some indoor seating. The service was great they reassured me about cross contamination. The majority of the menu was GF. We had the nachos (chips are gf and baked no cross contamination) the nut cheese was delicious. We also had veggie tacos they were spicy but very good. The lettuce wraps were enjoyed by all. You can't go here without having a cacao shake!!!! The shakes were expensive but worth it. Everything was fresh and delicious. We will definitely drive 2 hours each way to eat here again.
Best vegan food I've ever had. Everything is so fresh and flavorful! I am not a fan of beet root, but they can even make that taste super yummy and leave me wanting more! Highly recommend picking from the specials menu. The lettuce tacos are so delicious and so fresh! We have also had the corncakes, raw supreme pizza, fish tacos, sweet kale shake and sun nachos (def do the half and half because the flavors together are out of this world!!) They also offer cooking classes which I am thinking of possibly taking. A word of caution is that portion sizes are large so work with you server to order the right amount.
