Fresh Mama

Fresh Mama is a great fresh raw food cafe located in the southwestern part of Las Vegas.  They offer fresh wraps, salads, and smoothies.  They are located on 5875 S. Rainbow, just north of the 215, next to a yoga studio.  It's a terrific place, with a good atmosphere, fresh delicious food at affordable prices, accessible hours, (they are open until 9:00 on weeknights and until 6:00 on weekends,) and my understanding is that they are also community minded, hosting events like guest speakers coming in to present on health topics.   I think Fresh Mama is another reason that Vegas is a great place to be raw!

John Kohler made a nice You Tube video about them.

When you walk in, the first thing you notice is that it's spacious with leather seats and a nice, relaxing  ambiance.  

Main dining area

There are rooms off to the side that seem like they would be nice to reserve for banquets.

The menu is simple and straightforward.  When I was taking pics of the menu boards, they said  that even though the menu board still says that one of the smoothies contains whey, they no longer carry whey or put it in the smoothies.  They just haven't changed the menu board.

One thing I really like about it is the price.  Everything - the wraps, the salads, and the smoothies, are around $8.00 each.  For lunch or dinner, that rivals just about any other place where you can stop in for a bite.

And now for the food.  Fresh and delicious!  Some of the wraps aren't 100% raw, but you can request a substitution of collard or romaine for your wrap, and they'll happily make it for you.

They offer desserts which are kept in a little deli fridge off to one side.  We tried the Key Lime Pie, which was out of this world.

While you are there, you can purchase bags of snacky things like eggplant bacon, kale chips and sweet nuts which I believe they make on site.  One time, they offered us a free sample of the eggplant bacon, which was better than homemade.

Fresh Mama is definitely a place we will visit on a regular basis.  Check it out - it's great!
They have a website.
