Ron Russell, co-owner and a chef at SunCafe, began cooking professionally during college, leading him to become a vegetarian. Over those years, he’s continually developed healthier versions of traditional foods and unique dishes of his own inspiration. 14 years ago, Ron became interested in raw foods, after hearing a lecture by David Wolfe. Since then, he’s developed scores of raw food recipes and has given wellness lectures and taught more than 200 raw food preparation classes.
Rebecca, co-owner and designer of SunCafe, became a vegetarian when she was 17. She went vegan in 2000, and has done her best to maintain a mostly raw food diet since that time. Rebecca is a “foodie” with a discriminating palate. “Everything that comes out of the kitchen must be spectacular! It has to be something you simply can’t resist. If you have the willpower to walk away, it’s not good enough!”
Honestly, it’s true. Every plate was one to come back for… and I mean EVERY dish!
With inspiration and help from a number of people and sources, Rebecca designed the new location. The “Southern flare” comes from her upbringing in Memphis. She personally planted every flower & hand picked each brick on the patio. And it is fabulous!
There is a cozy outdoor area around a gorgeous fireplace to keep you nice and toasty during you meal and inside the restaurant has a cozy vibe that makes it almost feel like you’re a guest at someone’s house.
The wait staff is unbelievably professional and sweet (y’know, the kind that take the biggest order ever, and don’t need to write anything down and still gets the order down perfectly!).
The food was incredible! Honestly the best raw food burgers this side of….anywhere. Their smoothies were huge and tasted as though made by a sommelier connoisseur. Other things that were irresistable were their Vegan Pizza and Raw Lasagna. Couldn’t have had a better experience at SunCafe and I will go back there every time I visit LA. I’ll also recommend it to everyone possible that’s looking for a extremely healthy meal in the City of Angels.
Suncafe also has fun Raw Cooking Classes and a selection of organic wines and on-tap kombucha!
