I went to Casa De Luz for a girlfriend's birthday breakfast. It ended up being such a wonderful way to kick off a Thursday. To reach the dining hall one must traverse the gorgeous paths reminiscent of a buddhist retreat center. Casa De Luz is part of a larger infrastructure in which holistic approaches to well being are studied and practiced.
Once inside you pay immediately at the register then are welcomed to a smorgasboard of macrobiotic, vegan staples. That day we were treated to twig tea, whole grain porridge, sauteed greens, vegetable soup, fresh homemade tortillas, black beans, and we ended with a very fresh pecan pie.
Everything was also gluten free. A wonderful respite from heavy sugars, salts and allergens, Casa De Luz is a true Austin treat where one can experience whole foods from a community of people believing in nurturing. I can't wait to return for a dinner.
