On the Road: Chocola Tree Organic Vegetarian Eatery, Sedona, AZ

Chocola Tree Restaurant
Chocola Tree is a charming organic gluten-free vegetarian eatery located in Sedona. It's practically vegan, is free of processed sugar and hosts plenty of raw and healthy-focused items. Chocola Tree has lots of beverages to choose from plenty of teas, plus coffee, smoothies, kombucha, and even a Chocolate n Maca drink which I ordered an enjoyed. I do like maca!

Chocola Tree does have a small interior dining area but when I was there for lunch, no one was using it. Everyone was enjoying the beautiful day in the backyard patio area, which is nice and lush with fountains and plenty of birds, butterflies, and lizards.

For an appetizer, I had planned on sharing the Banana Bread n Butter, but it really was a one person serving. And it was incredible! So delicious, and then I didn't even want to share it. I also ordered the Sedona 2012 which is a tasty cooked tomato wrap filled with quinoa, potatoes, carrots, cilantro, hot sauce, vegan cheese, pico de gallo, mustard and guacamole. The Sedona was so filling, I couldn't finish it.

My dining companions had the Spring Rolls, Morrocan Magic, Kefir Parfait, and another Sedona 2012 and everyone was very happy with the meal. We were definitely too full for any type of dessert, though there were plenty of options including a large case of fancy chocolates, and at least some of the chocolates were vegan.

I enjoyed my visit to Chocola Tree, but this is definitely a place with food geared more towards the health conscious, organic, raw foodies who will find their bliss there. A place perfect for the good energy of Sedona.
