A kid-friendly organic food restaurant like Fresh in the west end? It is real, and it is called Thrive Organic. Located in Long Branch right on the Lakeshore, Thrive features a delicious menu that is 90% organic with fair-trade and local organic ingredients.
The house burger is a grain and nut patty on a sprouted bun with chipotle sauce, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese and tomatoes:
The BUDDHA bowl features baby spinach, micro-greens, carrots, onions, mango, cilantro, peanuts, black sesame seeds with a tahini/camu dressing:
The Longevity salad is filled with spinach, avocado, goji berries, red onion, goat cheese, sprout mix, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, with an acai/maca dressing:
Like the Fresh chain of restaurants (which I love) Thrive has an amazing selection of fresh juices and superfood booster smoothies, as well as organic beer and wine:
Unlike Fresh, Thrive has a section on the menu for children with kiddie rice bowls, wraps and burritos. The atmophere is comfortable, casual and there is live music on Tuesday nights. Rosie :)
