Raw Cookies Are Heating Up, But You've Got to Like Coconut

When we first heard of this week's surprise announcement of the pending closure of most of the Northern California locations of Café Gratitude, a vegetarian restaurant that also sells raw food products to specialty grocers, we were concerned for the cookies. Without their raw lemon coconut and raspberry thumbprint cookies, we will feel the loss of Café Gratitude beyond the restaurants.

We headed to the San Francisco co-op with the most extensive selection of packaged raw foods, Rainbow Grocery, in search of alternatives in the raw cookie category. The pleasant surprise of some strong new local contenders awaited.
