Review: Park Slope’s new Sun In Bloom
I discovered a fabulous new cafe in Park Slope, and I feel damn proud of myself.
For those of you who live in my hood, you might’ve be familiar with Organic Heights cafe on the awesome Bergen Street. On Friday afternoon, I decided I wanted a clean, healthy lunch so I walked over to Organic Heights only to discover that it was no longer!
However, much to my luck, a new cafe has taken its place. Sun in Bloom now occupies the casual space with communal tables. A totally chill, relaxed vibe that I enjoyed. I even struck up a conversation with two very interesting people who educated me on an enzyme drink they sell.
The menu is simple but offers a lot of vegan, vegetarian, macrobiotic, and raw offerings. I sampled the “Inspired Renewal Macrobiotic Bowl” and a cup of miso soup and it was DELISH. I love how they decribe their food as “Breakfast Inspired All-Day Delights,” which indeed they are…and only $8.50 for a large amount of food.
They also offer a selection of fresh juiced concoctions like the Rejuvenade and Ambrosia Elixir. And of course they have a large selection of sweets, both vegan and some are gluten free. I sampled a cupcake and a chocolate chip cookie (just a timy bite) and they were both super tasty.
Aimee, the owner, is super sweet and graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition with me. We spoke about her plans for Sun In Bloom (which just opened up in January) and she talked about holding workshops, lectures, and group meetings, making the cafe a place where people can enjoy delicious, healthy food and each other’s company.

I will definitely be a regular fixture at Sun in Bloom. See you there!
