  • Great vegetarian food

    Friendly staff and good food.

  • Amazing food!

    I don't think I have ever tasted such good Vegetarian/Vegan food in my life. And note that I am not a Vegan.

  • Great quality of food

    No matter how busy the people are in this place, you wouldn't think it's too crowded. You wouldn't mind it anymore. Most especially when you already tried their food. The food here is really good and it's always fresh. You would actually ask for more. Even though the staff were very busy, they still make it sure that you are being accommodated by them.\r The price is just right. And it's really worth it. I would tell my friends to drop by here also and try this restaurant.

  • Long Time Fan
    by  on 03/30/2011

    I have always loved Candle Cafe, especially when I am in too much of a rush to relax at Candle 79. The food is really good. I especially love the Cajun Seitan Sandwich almost more than any other sandwich in the world. I al also a fan of various smoothies and appetizers. Another great thing about this little cafe is the food is always fresh, unlike most places in NYC. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars are reasons I am sure can't be helped - as they seem smart enough to try to make it the best experience. 1.) it's ALWAYS crowded and you feel a little jammed 2.) the staff is always super busy and it's hard to get their attention when you need something. If they expanded (possible?) it would get 5 stars from me for sure.

  • Delicious and Satisfying for Mind and Body!
    by  on 03/28/2010

    Candle Cafe is our best vegan/vegetarian spot to eat. We like their menu over their more formal dining restaurant up the street ""Candle 79."" We are conscious eaters and know the exactly what is on the menu and it is just amazing and satisfying. The food is always flavorful, fresh and nothing short of amazing. They also have great organic wines to choose from.

  • Great vegetarian food.

    My family and I eat mainly organic and vegetarian food. Candle Café has been our hang out place during weekends. They serve delicious organic foods and desserts. The price is good as organic food is more expensive than conventional food.

  • great vegan options but the service lacks a little
    by  on 03/03/2009

    I have few local options for vegan dinners and Candle Cafe has been my default for a while. They are a bit pricey, but nothing out of the ordinary for the neighborhood. I like to treat myself to a healthy smoothie after I go tanning across the street. I would just recommend patience when ordering for delivery. If you are hungry, your better bet is to walk over and pick it up yourself.

  • Horrible management...
    by  on 06/26/2008

    Number one rule in the restaurant business, when a customer finds an insect crawling in their food, they should be given a full refund and a sincere apology.... A good, well trained manager should know exactly how to handle these situations when they happen because word gets around and when you loose regular customers, that is really bad for business. If i was treated properly i would not be writing this review. \r Where is the kind and friendly customer service. I have eaten there dozens of times and i'm afraid after what i experienced tonight (thur 26th June) i will not return - i go to restaurants where customers are appreciated and treated with a little bit of respect... I'm so disappointed in Candle cafe.....\r Also, Candle cafe need to spend a little extra money and hire a few more delivery people because 1 hour wait when you only live around the corner is a little ridiculous.\r So as much as i hate to say it, i just would not recommend this restaurant anymore.\r \r Awful, just plain awful....
