On Our Radar: Candle Cafe West

Candle Cafe West

Upper West Side vegans, rejoice! The Zagat-rated vegan oasis of a restaurant, Candle 79, has just opened its newest addition to the Candle clan this month, giving Candle Café on the Upper East Side a little sibling on the Upper West.

Located on Broadway and 89th Street, Candle Café West opened with a majority of the menu reflecting the original Candle Café selections. There are also some new items and a few Candle 79 favorites, owner Joy Pierson said in a piece on Well + Good. Delivery and take-out are available.

The Yelp page for the new location has received rave reviews and Candle Café’s Facebook fans sound excited — and relieved — by the new addition to the west side. Here are a few comments from its new “Life Event” post:

“Congratulations — I still remember the Healthy Candle! You people are astoundingly creative and blessed!”

“Took out from Candle West tonight — delicious as always! We’re so glad you’re open on the West Side.”

Here’s one Facebook comment we can’t help but echo: “Candle Brooklyn coming next right? ;-)”
