Healthy Vegan Desserts: Bodhi Tree Cafe
Bodhi Tree Cafe strictly serves Western and Thai vegetarian dishes, but vegans will be pleased to hear that there are also many of egg, butter, milk, yogurt, and honey-free finds on the menu, as well. Lotus is the heart and soul of the kitchen at Bodhi Tree Cafe, and she and her staff of all women will certainly make you feel at home as you indulge in the sweet finds here. The long-term goal of the cafe is to create a community made up of like-minded human beings, made up of both locals and travelers alike. The team here also wants to bring positive change in the world with good food and healthy practices that help both the humans and the planet they call home.
