    We've always enjoyed Blossom Cafe. Of the 3 branches the Cafe had on the menu a vegan "Cheese burger with onions and mushrooms" It is always delicious and a special treat for somebody like me who keeps kosher and this is the closest thing I can get to a "Cheese burger" It's not on the other Blossom restaurants' menu. Consequently we're sad to see you close.

    After reading several reviews, I expected to find myself in a noisy, rushed, crowded atmosphere at Cafe Blossom, even allowing extra time to deal with possible delays. Instead, when I arrived at 5:00 PM, this past Thursday, before going to my Met Opera, which was within reasonable walking distance, I was delighted to find that the ambience was calm, friendly, and quiet, with quick attentive service and delicious food. I thoroughly enjoyed my very relaxed meal, there. I do hope to come back to this terrific vegan find, soon, so that I can try some of the other wonderful-sounding dishes on their menu.

    Hard to believe its vegan food, this vegan restaurant is a favorite of mine and many others. It is clean and the service is excellent. I'm not such a fan of tofu or related items but I always find something yummy to eat. The health "cocktails" are a delight. Fun place to hang. Pretty $$$$$.

    My cousin introduced us to this wonderful neighborhood restaurant. From the appetizers to the entrees, everything was yummy and creatively prepared. It's a vegan restaurant that doesn't try to make everything taste like meat; instead, it lets veggie flavors shine.

    We took our daughter there on her 18th birthday before going to see Wicked. It was a ten minute cab ride to the theater, so it was very convenient. After walking through Central Park we arrived 40 minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately on a Friday night. The food was very good, not too much and not too expensive and the employees most friendly. We would definitely go back.

    This is by far one of the best VEGAN restaurants in NYC. everything on the Menu is delicious. I wish i knew how to cook that well. it's so satisfying knowing nothing you put in your mouth comes from the cruelty to animals. i always recommend this restaurant and take many non-vegan people to eat there, they really are surprised how delicious vegan food really is and i always hope i have opened their blind eyes.

    Great food - my burger was amazing. The quinoa salad with tofu was a little too cold for my liking (including the grilled tofu that was supposed to be warm). I would return, but will not be ordering a salad; hot food only!

    I had a good time at Blossom. My service was impeccable: swift, polite, not too much hankering but enough checking in. I even finished reading a book there. The cashew sauce pasta I ordered was good. It could have had more salt and more pepper. Just more flavor, any flavor. I love the tomatoes and the sauce but the whole thing as I chewed just lacked any real flavor. Perhaps they could boil the pasta in a broth. I loved my cookie dough milk shake.

    I selected Cafe Blossom for a special occasion for both my daughter and son-in-law because they embraced the vegan life. It has been our experience that it is difficult to find restaurants that offer suitable vegan options. Cafe Blossom has a solely dedicated vegan menu with enough options for anyone who enjoys vegetables. The service was very good and attentive. Our server able to explain anything on the menu. The restaurant itself is located in a very vibrant part of the Upper West side. Our experience was relaxed and enjoyable!

    I had reservations for six, but one guest couldn't make it and two more were very late. With these complications, the waitstaff was very helpful. And the food was great! I had the French toast but tried some of the grilled cheese as well - both amazing. Two of our guests were non-vegan - one eats meat - and they loved it. I plan on coming back! Thanks for the great food and service.

    This is a gem of the upper west side. Great menu with tons of choices for vegans. No animal products served at all so vegans are safe to try anything! The Cape Cod Cakes are excellent and be sure to ask what the soup of the day is. There are usually 2 delicious choices. The chocolate cake is phenomenal! Go! Make a reservation -the secret is out so it gets busy.

    Had a great experience at Cafe Blossom. My husband and I met another couple there for brunch. They're vegan, and we're not, so we wanted something that would work for everyone. Despite the entire menu being vegan, my husband enjoyed every bite, and he's not very adventurous. He loved the blueberry pancakes, and I was very happy with the Country Breakfast. I would suggest anyone visit this restaurant, as everyone will find something they enjoy.

    Visited on a relatively slow Monday evening, with no reservation necessary. The hostess was great and let us choose our preferred seat out of the open tables. Everything served was fantastic. The flavor profile on all the dishes ordered at the table was spot on, and one of the best meals I've had in a while (if not ever!). The only thing that could be improved on was the server, who took a while to greet us and, after taking the check, did not ask if we needed change or bother to thank us on our way out. After we payed it was as if we did not exist.

    I found out about this place online. I dined here with my dad. The service was great. Our server was really friendly and helpful. The food came really fast. I got the breaded seitan with caramelized onions, chipotle aiole, and avocado on rosemary foccacia. My dad got the soy bacon cheeseburger. We both loved our meals. And we were really glad we could get our desserts to go, because we were very full. We both got milkshakes. I got dreamsicle, and my dad got butterfinger. Once again, our food was delicious. I would definitely come back, as there were more food I was interested in trying there.

    As a new Vegan, I have just begun exploring NYC for restaurants, cafes, etc to try out. This was my first experience and I completely loved it. My partner is not a Vegan and he enjoyed his meal. Good portions, awesome options and great presentation. The juicer was not working that day, which would have been a plus, but I would recommend and go to again.

    Amazing food. So fresh and delicious. I eat a plant-based/vegan diet and found the food absolutely delicious. My brother, a total carnivore, enjoyed his meal as well. I would totally reccommend this place for vegans, non-vegans, and all those skeptics who think a good meal needs animals - it doesn't! And this place makes you realize that. I had the quinoa salad, sweet potato rolls, and a side of kale. Wonderful.
