Karma Road is a located in the little college town of New Paltz, across the river from us. This organic vegan cafe and deli definitely topped my list of local restaurants to try and, this weekend, I finally got around to it.
Tony ordered the Avocado Explosion sandwich, made with avocado (duh), carrots, arugula, tahini and mayo.
And Jackson had a banana peanut butter and jelly sandwich. All the sandwiches were served on multigrain bread that I later found out is wheat-free. I thought tempeh reubens are usually served on rye bread, but in any case, this bread was really good. This was my first time eating a tempeh reuben. I'm always a little wary of tempeh and I don't think I've ever had sauerkraut before, either, but I always hear about tempeh reubens and I wanted to try something new! I liked this sandwich. The sauerkraut was sweet, sour and salty all at the same time, providing a lot of flavor. My only complaint about the sandwiches is that they don't come with a side. I guess if you wanted a side, you could pick something out from the deli case, which was full of various salads, pastas, and potatoes.
I also ordered a fresh juice made from kale, spinach, cucumber and apple. In spite of all the greens, it had mostly a sweet apple flavor and went down easily. For dessert, we split a chocolate chip peanut butter and jelly cookie.
Overall, a great lunch, a cute little cafe, and I wouldn't mind going back again to sample their other sandwiches.
