Rawlicious is a vegan café that serves raw foods on Dundas Street in downtown Toronto. Its menu items contain no meat, dairy nor refined sugar. Rawlicious is a living foods café, which means the restaurant does not cook food beyond 118 Fahrenheit. It is also a vegan and organic café. The foods also are totally organic and raw. There is a small percentage of the ingredients in Rawlicious's array of foods that the restaurant readily admits are not organic, however. This becomes an option only if the kitchen staff cannot find a raw or vegan substitute. The eatery also gives patrons an option to take away its prepared raw food basics. Rawlicious is set up to provide a comfortable atmosphere where customers will feel at home, and the establishment also hosts various events such as movie nights.
