This place is simply amazing! I've recently had to go Vegan due to health issues and this is my go to place! The owner is the nicest human being I've ever met and the food is out standing! If you are Vegan and have diet restrictions, this place is for you!
They just opened last week so they are adding foods all the time. A very small store with lots of good foods, spices, chips, juices and desserts. Everything is organic, a lot of raw, no preservatives in their foods. One of my favorite items is the purple goddess salad. The chocolate chip cookie is great too. I picked up Sprouted Almonds - Spicy & Savory, That would be tough not to eat that bag in one sitting.
I try not to go a day without her amazing raw power shakes, juices, tonics, bars.. And I am trying more of her products as I can.My energy level is higher than it has been since I was a little girl. I have stopped taking the prescription antidepressants that I have needed for almost 20 years, my autoimmune disorder has disappeared, I have quit nicotine and all meat products, and I am slowly moving toward a vegan diet. I have lost 8 lbs, I do yoga almost every day, and I feel incredible!Life changing!!
I love this place!I stopped in one afternoon and wow was I surprised, I picked up some vegan butter, a slice of carrot cake for my son, balsamic salad dressing and the most delicious cauliflower salad with kale (I ate it for lunch for 3 days straight). The carrot cake was a HUGE hit and the cashew cream frosting was really nice.I can't wait to go back and pick up some more goodies and a couple juices.
Dear Lydia, I work at San Francisco airport and have discovered your products at Napa Farms Market. I am so happy I have because they are delicious! especially the Kale Krunchies! Thank you for creating such awesome, yummy, energizing products!
The care and love that went into Lydia's Sunflower Cafe food was awesome.
It was a sad day for me when I learned she was closing her restaurant in Petaluma.
I would never consider myself a raw foodie or a vegan, but I got hooked on the menu and wished I could eat like that every day! I brought so many friends under the guise of listening to great music but once they tasted the food they became devotees as well. Out of town friends couldn't wait to go to Lydia's and said there was nothing like it where they lived. I look forward to ordering from her Catering business.
I have been a fan of Lydia's for years! Her meals are incredible, her treats are irresistible and most importantly the love she puts into everything is inspiring and heartwarming. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything she and her products stand for, and of course how they taste and how they make me feel....and that's AWEsome!
I have worked with Lydia's to provide food for at least four festivals and in other settings. The food is completely unique, is prepared with high quality, organic ingredients and is always a crowd pleaser. Also I like the family feeling and responsiveness of Lydia and the staff. Personally I adore the green soup, crave the smoothies and love the desserts. Vegetarians and vegans are an important part of the communities we serve and we have many health-conscious attendees and others who all enjoy the flavorful and healthful menu. Highly recommended!
Lydia's desserts are supremely creamy, delicious, and satisfying! Lydia's Green Alkalizing Soup fills me with the true pleasure of being really healthy! There are few experiences as blissful as Lydia's vegan pizza with wild mushrooms - I am an extreme cheese-loving non-vegan, but the Cashew Cheez doesn't need to justify its existence; it is truly wonderful in its own right.All you need is Love - the love in, and the love of, Lydia's Lovin' Foods is one of the things the world really needs!
I have tried Lydia's food so many times and there are so many things to say about it. First and most important, is delicious and healthy; I 've always felt safe eating at her restaurants, knowing that everything was organic and vegan with no hidden ingredients. Then I also admired her passion for educating people in how to eat healthy and protect animals and the environment.Thanks to her I am aware now of many of my bad vegetarian habits ( lot of starch and gluten ) and I have become an avid juicer. Also, is because of her food that I discovered how yummy vegan food can be and all the possibilities that you have to be a creative cook without using animal products and chemical foods.My favorite Lydia's recipes are; the crepes, the raw curry, the purple goddess salad, her chlorophyll boost drink and hot ginger lemonade, the kale chips, the pizzas and the green power balls!! :P
Lydia's food tastes awesome and is good for you. Her passion shines through the food. She only uses quality organic ingredients. My husband and I would drive all of the way from Walnut Creek to her Fairfax location then to her Petaluma location and we were never disappointed. We even brought our grandmother along for the ride once and she loved the food!Our favorites include the crepes, purple goddess salad, kale salad, and the burger on the buffkin bun. She also makes a corn free tamale which is good! The raw desserts are delicious as well. I've have tried all of her dishes in the restaurant and was never disappointed.I would highly recommend her for your next event!
Anything Lydia does is done with integrity! An amazing person and business in the Bay Area. I have driven miles to her business and purchased many delicious meals to go from Whole Foods. She is an educator a business owner who gives back on many levels to the community and a joyful inspiration.
I love this food! I've eaten it at various festivals, Bioneers Conference, etc. I love the shitake-greens crepe with pesto - delicious. Also the kale chips, Goddess burger, purple cabbage salad, and the desserts. [...] I appreciate that I can find food here that is gluten-free, dairy-free, meat-free and sugar-free. Healthy food that's also yummy.
I Love Lydia's "Loving" Foods" Whole heartedly! It's a true blessing to be living in this amazing community of like-minded beings. Thank you so much, Lydia, for all the beauty you bring to us (Through your delicious food) You make this world a better place! Many Thanks
