Blue Nile Cafe in Tempe AZ
I just had one of the Best raw meals ever!! Blue Nile Cafe in Tempe AZ (933 E University Dr). I had a spinach/avocado soup and onion bread sandwich. Excellent. (Would have had the spinach/mushroom quiche, but they had sold out). The soup was excellent, served with a mound of sprouts on top ... the sandwich was heaped with sprouts and sliced avocado & tomato with a spicy mustard sauce ... with a side of sliced cucumbers drizzled with mustard sauce. Wow - very nice. We moved on to dessert -- some pecan/cinnamon buns drizzled with chocolate; and a dark and light chocolate cherry mousse. Simply wonderful.
I've been 100% raw going on 8 years, and have had some great raw food in various places. My next trip to phoenix, I'll definitely stop at this restaurant again. The food was great, the place was very cute and nice, and the service was excellent. Our servers (Sierra and Corey) were very efficient, knowledable and fun to talk with.
The Blue Nile Cafe has non raw vegan food as well. The phone number is 480 377 1113. They have a website, but they don't show the raw menu on line. My partner isn't raw, so he had the ethopian food -- and he said it was awesome. So, there is something for everyone.
If you are in Phoenix -- I highly recommend you give the Blue Nile a try!
