I've been to Feel Good Guru twice in the past week, it would have been thrice had they been open yesterday mid afternoon. The location is so awesome, their food is delicious and portion sizes are impressive for a raw vegan cafe. And while I find the staff in most vegan places to be friendly this group is exceptionally outgoing. They love to talk about the food and offer up bits of interesting information (i.e. SlimCado wtf?) which makes for a feel good experience... no joke. The place is set up for takeout, with a few stools at the front. They make everything on the spot so don't expect to be out of there in under 15 minutes. While they do have a cooler with drinks, the good stuff needs to be assembled by hand so you can watch them layer all those beautiful, local ingredients. The avocado and cheese sandwich is wow at first bite, it was my Mum's first go at raw restaurant food and she loved it. The Eco Taco is perfectly spicy and in the words of Grande Jean "I didn't know a raw taco could taste like that, so fcuking good!", while the Blueberry Crumble was quickly devoured, the Rainbow Wraps proved perfect for walking and eating. It's just what the West Queen West area needed, takeout food that's truly good for you.
