Stopped in for lunch when we were in Peterborough for the day and glad we did. Nice earthy atmosphere and an expansive menu of vegetarian/vegan dishes, including a large selection of smoothies and juices.
Done in or order from the counter. Try the Almond Oat...Flout waffles with fresh maple syrup. They are to die for. The bowls are also wonderful and will fi you up.More
A wonderful place for a vegan meal in Peterborough. We really enjoyed our lunch. Really clean and great service. We tried the carrot apple juice, the pad thai, the electric city bowl, and the polenta fries. Delicious!
We chose Food Forest for our dessert and we were not disappointed! Everything looked delicious and healthy but we chose the chocolate fudge cheesecake! Oh my gosh! It had a coconut base and was better than biting into a Mounds Chocolate Bar. Very addictive! Coffee...was good too and lots of lovely options for tea.More
I've been a couple times and both times have been a somewhat of a disappointment.
I'm not a foodie, but I know what I like. I take the approach that if you are going out food should be good to eat first and healthy is...a just bonus.
On my first visit more than a year ago, I tried their burger with a gluten free bun. Perhaps the gluten free has improved over the last year, but it was awful. I'd honestly rather eat sawdust. I know what sawdust tastes like. I'm not just saying that. Both the patty and bread were IMHO inedible. I ordered from the juice bar and at least enjoyed that.
The 2nd time wes a few days ago. My wife had the tacco salad. They screwed up the chili pepper and she couldn't really eat it. I love hot foods and I still found it a bit too hot to eat. They apologized profusely, as it was an honest mistake. They offered to redo the plate but we just plowed through it for some reason. They gave us pick of the deserts in compensation - fair enough.
I had the electric city bowl - with no expectations. The tempeh was so salty it was again inedible. My wife ate some of it, but honestly it was not fit for human consumption - in that much salt could actually be lethal. We didn't bring it up with the server, at this point the experience IMHO was simply embarrassingly poor. They said the owner was on site and cooking - take from that what you will.
Anyhow, I've heard nothing but great reviews. Their deserts are just OK. Good enough to compliment your aunt, etc, but not something you would consider paying good money for.
Their juice bar is very good. I've only tried one thing and it was better than my own concoctions I've made at home only after much time, trial and error. But, I've had better and worse.
Never going back and felt I needed to share my perspective. I'm somewhat new to plant based / vegan diet. There are other options in town. Go with them.More
Passing through Peterborough and searched for a healthy food restaurant and found The Food Forest. Nice place with nice service.
The burgers were great. The sauces really made them special.
The polenta fries were interesting to try. I wasn't quite sure what I was expecting....They sort of crumbled.
We finished with a shake for dessert, which was really filling!More
Had the polenta fries and taco salad. Both were tasty and fresh. What an awesome place to stumble across. Not a vegan, or even a vegetarian but I loved this place. Kudos to the great staff, the service was great too.
