On a recent rainy Saturday I was shopping at Joe's Market around brunchtime and was turned off by the high prices at their dine-in section, so I decided to go across the street to Palani Drive when it opened at 11:00. So glad I did! The atmosphere was warm, quiet and soothing. The prices were amazingly low for the amount of food I was served. And the food! All fresh-made, natural, healthy, not overwrought. I had a delicious banana-blueberry-mango smoothie, tabbouli with pita crisps, great coffee, and the house creation ""Shenandoah"" wrap - sweet potato puree, grilled chicken, spinach, just the right dash of vinaigrette and I forget what other delicacies - heaven! I can't wait to go back to Richmond and order it again, and then try the rest of the menu.
