NYC - Caravan of Dreams

Saturday morning, in between our trips to High Vibe and Live Live we stopped at Caravan of Dreams for breakfast. This place has awesome atmosphere! I am sure I must be part gypsy!! Love this type of surroundings, deep rich colors, things hanging all over the place, colored lights and stars. The menu is half raw- half cooked.
I felt in need of some serious nutrition and ordered the Kombucha Green - Green Juice with Aloe Vera, Spirulina and Kombucha! Tom ordered Coconut water, one of his very favorite things. They had 2 live soups so each had one of those.

Then we had The Ecuador - angelhair pasta from squash or yams, guac and flaz chips, daikon, jicama with salsa, grapefruit and a salad. This had been recommended to us and was delicious.

We also ordered some sides to try: some of their Flax Chips, Almond Hummus, Sour Cream and Mango Chutney. I loved the Almond Hummus, it was so ceamy and delicious, one of the best hummus's I have had!

Desserts! We ordered 3!

The Peach Cobbler..

The Chocolate Banana Pie came highly recommended..

and Strawberry Cheesecake..

..and they had almond milk so I enjoyed one of my fav things, an indulgence from my past which I have gotten back into again this past year.. and something we didnt come across very often on this trip - a cup of tea. ..It's the little things ; )
