***image2***For a treat, I often take a friend to eat at The Candle Cafe.
The food is so delicious that I even order extra to take home. The Quesadilla, stuffed with portobello mushrooms and red peppers is one of my favorites. The Seitan sandwich is very tasty indeed. The food is fresh, satisfying and reasonably priced.
Please don’t miss out on the desserts… Ooh, I love the Lemon-Tofu cheesecake made with soy. Do try the decadent Chocolate Cake. In fact, my advice is to try all the desserts! just kidding!
