The Candle Cafe is a vegetarian restaurant with locations on the Upper East Side (1307 Third Avenue) and Upper West Side (2427 Broadway) in New York City. According to the East side location’s website;
“Candle Cafe is dedicated to bettering the health of the individual and the planet by serving food fresh from farm to table. Our organic vegan cuisine is rooted in sustainability, eco-friendly practices, local farming, and compassion for animals.”
I stumbled upon the East side location while looking for a place to eat lunch with my friends, and we were all instantly attracted to its vegetarian-friendly menu (as all three of us were vegetarians). Although the food was somewhat pricey (likely because it’s NYC and everything is expensive), it was worth the cost.
I ordered the avocado BLT (with tempeh bacon), and I would definitely recommend it. My friends ordered the portabello burger (which she loved) and the flatbread pizza (technically an appetizer, but she said it filled her up quickly and was delicious). You can look at the East side menu here and the West side one here.
