Imagine fresh, healthy food served in a high-ceilinged, natural light-filled space. Imagine soups, sandwiches, juices – even chocolate – that are 100% raw, organic and vegan, and often locally sourced, too. Imagine no more! Café Bliss is a Victoria restaurant devoted to creating rich dishes that have neither been cooked nor contain any animal-derived ingredients.
Raw food, well done
Open for breakfast and lunch, the café is known for its extensive menu and daily soup, salad and pizza specials. Soups are held at a maximum temperature of 115 C, which is the point at which enzymes begin to break down. Café Bliss’s popular pizzas feature seasonal veggies on sprouted seed crusts.
Drink your juice
Fresh juices are always popular, as are the smoothies, which are thickened with house-made almond “milk” and contain the freshest vegetables and fruits available. For supercharged nutrition, try them with wheatgrass.
Room for dessert
While all the food is raw and vegan, it appeals to health-conscious omnivores and those who are on wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free or sugar-free diets. Café Bliss offers surprisingly rich treats that everyone can enjoy, such as raw vegan chocolate, cakes, and the Bliss Bar, a Nanaimo-bar-like confection that your tastebuds, and body, will love.
