Focus Lacey!!! Focus! Fo- awwww look how cute sophie is playing with her toy!! …I mean… FOCUS!!!
On Sunday, after church, my mom and I were on our way to the natural foods co-op for lunch and some groceries. On our way, we passed a little holistic health and wellness center called Ancient Future. Its been there for a little while, but we had heard that recently a little cafe had opened inside. Split second change of plans and we were on our way inside…
From the outside, I wasn’t really expecting much, maybe a little veggie sandwich and tea, maybe something healthy and hippie-like, you know.
But wow! It turned out to be one of the nicest vegan meals I have had! A quaint yet very artisan cafe, with delicious food and absolutely gorgeous presentation! Plus it is all organic, fresh, local food with produce straight from farmers markets and their own garden (picked day of!)
It didn’t seem like there were many vegan options on the menu, but with the specials and a little bit of maybe you could add this *bats eyelashes* we had quite a little feast!
After ordering, we were given little shots of Mayan sipping chocolate, that had been made with almond milk. It was quite tasty, but very rich, like drinking spiced chocolate syrup.
Tofu and spinach curry atop a potato cake, served with crostini, sautéed veggies, and a side salad.
Ratatouille taste served with sautéed veggies and a side salad.
Beautiful fruit bowl with a side of vegan dipping chocolate (for dessert).
I ended up actually dipping my fruit (and crostini haha:) in my sipping chocolate instead because it was a little lighter in flavor, but with hints of cinnamon and cayenne that were lovely compliments to the fresh fruit.
Overall it was a delicious brunch, one that I will definitely be going back to! They also have an all chocolate breakfast on Thursdays and Fridays (with all menu items versatile to be made vegan!!), so I might just have to try that too (sigh…oh darn 😉
