Expats from the Pearl and especially the Hawthorne District of Portland (OR) will love this place-- it'll be just like home. Put away your visas to the Texas Republic here! Cosmic Cafe is Vegan Fusion with bits of Indian, Vegan-Mex, Middle-eastern, etc.
GO FOR THE CHAI! The best I've had at any restaurant-- the soy chai is absolutely perfect--honey to taste and yum!. The only better I've had is in India-- the Mothership itself.
MAIN MENU--Looks Good, but not too flavorful. We had hummous, Buddha's Delight (vegetable curry), stir fry, and squash bisque. The curry was decent but too mild, the stir fry might have been great... and the squash bisque... well, my friend was quick to share.
The surroundings, a restaurant in a craftsman styled house, lots of colorful murals, creative decor, and absolutely INCREDIBLE CHAI make it a place we'll return to, just to drink chai!
Pros: Colorful decor, Outstanding Chai, Atmosphere+++
Cons: Blandish food
