Candle Café West is an vegan restaurant with a focus on being fresh, organic, and delicious with exceptional service. It joins the category of “from farm to table” food services and has out done itself. Not only is the food amazing, it also has a great eco friendly bar and dessert menu that perfectly complimented the meal.

Let’s start with the service, the staff at Candle was excellent! Everyone was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and borderline psychic. Water glasses were filled, plates taken away, everything done just right. The food, oh what can I say, it was perfect! Not only were the seitan (fake meat made from wheat) in my Cajun Seitan Sandwich done perfectly with texture and taste, the over all meal was simply amazing. The food was so good I couldn’t careless that it wasn’t real meat that I was eating. Unfortunately, the same thing happens every time I have great food, no room left for dessert!!! I had my eyes on the Black and White Empanadas (Filled with chocolate rice pudding, served with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with chocolate sauce) which sounds amazing! Let’s just say, I definitely plan on going back to Candle soon.
