We dined at Winter Park’s Cafe 118 a couple of weeks ago and I can still taste the sweet sweet chocolate hazelnut tart.
This is an absolutely unique dining experience. Everything served at Cafe 118 degree is raw and vegan. No meat, no dairy, no stove. However, if I took you there for lunch or dinner one day and didn’t mention this to you, you may not even notice. Their menu items are rich and satisfying from hummus to lasagna. Menu items that would normally require cream-based ingredients are filled with nuts. There are flavors of every type. We enjoyed taco salad, hummus and crispy vegetable Summer rolls.
While raw food dining is rich in nutrients, do not be fooled, these nut-based dishes are rich and calorie-loaded. People wonder how people can feel full without meat and dairy, you’ll find the answer to this question at Cafe 118.
Entrees range from $13 to $18, but remember you are paying for quality. Cafe 118 uses locally sourced products which means they are fresher and they support the local economy. It is certainly money well spent.
This is an absolute must try. So we want to know if you’ve tried it, if you’re going to try it and what your thoughts are on this unique concept. Tell us in the comments!
