Living La Cafe Vida!

October 12, 2009

Jill and Faye have raved about Cafe Vida for as long as I can remember.  I went in without knowing what kind of food they served or anything.  Everything there is organic, even the Heinz ketchup they serve!

Boyfriend went with the Breakfast Sandwich Meltwhich was 2 organic eggs over medium, cheddar, bacon, tomato, lettuce, onion, avocado, lite basil mayo on grilled multigrain or sourdough bread. Boyfriend went with the sourdough.  He could choose between  fresh fruit or organic green salad on the side.  I tried a bite and it was messy goodness!

Since Day 1, Jill has always ordered the Tex Mex Grilled Chicken Salad.  It has organic greens, shredded carrots, avocado, fresh pico de gallo salsa, fresh corn, tortilla strips, lite balsamic vinaigrette, garnished with ranchero cheese.  It must’ve been amazing because she cleaned off her plate!

Faye often goes with the Huevos Rancheros Vida Style: 2 organic over medium eggs on top of 2 low fat corn tortilla, quesadillas, topped with homemade red and green salsas, organic black beans, organic spanish brown rice and guacamole.

I loved what I got and would definitely get it again!  I got a Grilled Chicken Chipotle Quesadilla.  It is on a whole – wheat tortilla with low fat mozzarella, spinach, salsa, guacamole and chipotle sauce.   It was the perfect blend of chicken with spiciness.  Jill and Faye said the sweet potato fries are great so I got that as my side.

I can’t wait to go back and try other stuff on their menu!  And possibly have a celebrity sighting next time too. ; )
