Wow, I am very impressed with The Better World Cafe located in Highland Park, NJ. This restaurant is unique to the area. Located in downtown Highland Park, the cafe is an eco-friendly restaurant where you can get freshly made items made from local ingredients at affordable prices(or for free if you have no money). Alternatively, you can either pay as much as you can afford, volunteer for an hour to help out, or pay a bit more if you 'd like to contribute to the cause.
We sampled a little bit of everything. We started our lunch with a quinoa, carrot and raisin salad and a tofu slaw, both amazing. Next was a black bean and sweet potato burrito followed by a small bowl of vegetarian chili. For dessert, we had a warm pear and berry crisp and excellent coffee complements of Dean's Beans. Lest you think this is a fancy restaurant, its not. This is a very simple, nonprofit organization dedicated to serving healthy food at an affordable price. What a concept!
