Candle Cafe’s upscale counterpart, Candle 79, serves an organic, farm-to-table vegetarian menu for a more discerning crowd. The delicious, tried and true eco-friendly fare combined with an organic wine and sake bar have earned Candle 79 its reputation as one of the best vegan restaurants in the city.

Candle 79! This place is scrumptious! I went here with my boyfriend and we had an amazing meal that we topped off with apple pie and ice cream. When the waiter served it to us, we both said, “this is some of the best ice cream I’ve ever had!” and we were dumbfounded when he replied, “yeah, I can’t believe it’s vegan!” If you want a classy meal that doesn’t scream VEGAN! but is, this is your place.

Candle 79 is amazingly good. I’ve been eating there from the very start and it just gets better all the time! It’s perfect for special occasions (I’ve spent wedding anniversaries and ALL of my recent birthdays there) but you certainly don’t have to wait for one to go. The lunch menu is as great as the dinner version, and you don’t have to BE vegan to enjoy the food, but be prepared to be amazed by what you’ll be tasting!
