After checking out a farmer’s market, our last stop before heading home was at Chaco Canyon Organic Café. This place is vegetarian and has two other locations around town.
Everything seemed to be closed on a holiday Sunday so we dropped in here (around 1:45pm) as it was one of the few places open in the neighbourhood. The cafe is spacious with tons of seating inside but the decor and vibe is outdated.
The menu is split into breakfast, grain bowls, sandwiches, soups and salads, kids menu, pueblo plate and drinks (fresh juices, elixirs and smoothies). Prices seem out of wack for certain things so be careful what you order.
Egyptian red lentil ($7.90 US bowl)
Red lentils, carrots, potatoes and onions.
It’s overpriced for a bowl but it was warm and soothing.
Hippie bowl ($9.95 US)
House made garlic tahini drizzled over baked tofu, quinoa, carrots, kale, cabbage, sprouts and topped with sesame seeds. We were craving vegetables so this hit the spot for us. They were very light handed on the tahini dressing. A little more would have been ideal but the tofu was solid (lightly marinated, medium firm) and the mix of vegetables was healthy.
Decent vegetarian food but nothing I’d be sprinting back for.
