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 tel... view more

Long Time Fan

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 ... view more

Delicious and Satisfying for Mind and Body!

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

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...

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... view more

The only thing consistent about this restaurant is their ability to screw up your order

Due to the lack of Vegetarian/Vegan restaurants on the UES (or in NYC) when I want the convenience of ordering take out after a long hard day, I have little choice but to order from Candle Cafe. The entire take out process is truly a test of ones patience. I understand being put on hold, due to the sheer volume of take out calls. I do not however understand the borderline rude, devoid of personality staff taking my o... view more

Great Food marred by poor customer service

Food is great and very tasty; although the menu could use some updates. Unfortunately, the excellent food is marred by very poor customer service. I recommend going to the restaurant rather then ordering in. Phone waits can be up to 20 minutes long with no apology for the wait. Should any problems arise at the restaurant, management is very nonchalant and not eager to help.
