Many of you have listened to my interviews with owner and chef Melissa Davison:
Just before taping the last show I found out that they were serving Sunday brunch and we just HAD to go and find out what was the draw so, we showed up about 10:30 a.m. on June 17, '07.
Melissa was outside chatting with some customers on their patio dining area. As it was a bit chilly still we chose to eat inside.
The first thing I ordered was the Chocolate Strawberry Crepes ($8). "Soft banana wrapper filled with chocolate mud and topped with fresh strawberries." I got them for me yet, once Bo tried them, I was hard put to keep up with him. They are DELICIOUS!!!
Next came the Fruit Pizza. (Price not listed on the menu yet, I'd say close to $8 as well). Another wonder-filled choice. It was a sprouted oat raisin cookie topped with vanilla cream and in-season chopped fruit. Bo only got one bite of that. It was heavenly!
Bo got the Toast 'n' Jam... "Raw Savory Bread with fresh berry jam and almond butter." They usually serve it with Ezekiel Toast yet Bo ordered the raw bread. We were not impressed. The "bread" was too salty. ($2.95 although since we got the raw version, may have been more).
We also got a bowl of the Love Porridge. That was surprisingly good once I got over the idea of cold porridge. Of course, it can be warmed. It's made with "whole sprouted oats, apple, banana, cinnamon, raisins and hugs." Well, I don't know where the apples and bananas were.. or the hugs. lol The porridge was good though, topped with cinnamon. ($5.25)
For drinks Bo had Expresso Yourself ~ A creamy chocolate "coffee drink" with coconut vanilla cream swirl. ($2.95) Bo said he didn't like the texture. Says it was "grainy". I'm thinking it was made with cacao powder.
I got the Strawberry Lemonade ~ ($2.95) That was yummy.
The cafe is open and airy. TerraBella offers various menus on various days, demonstrations and other events. They have some outside seating as well.
They've got a small selection of books (including my Smoothies and Smoozies book :) ) and various other supplemental foods such as olive oil and powdered cacao.
The menu has changed since last we've been so cannot comment on the lunch/dinner menu.
Definitely make it for Sunday brunch if you're in the area.
