Faux real: Portia’s Cafe

By
From the Faux real: Portia’s Cafe edition

If there’s a dessert that could beat the guilt out of guilty pleasures, the Cheezecake from Portia’s Cafe in Clintonville could just be it. Expanded to a brick-and-mortar location after years as a popular table at the Clintonville Farmers Market, the young eatery caters to the vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO crowd, with a fair amount of raw options, too. That includes this no-cheese cake, which, as advertised, will leave you wondering if the cooks have been cheating in the kitchen. Take the Berry-Berry Mango ($6), which blends strawberry, blueberry and mango (also available in pineapple) with cashews and coconut butter into a smoothie-tasting, creamy consistency. Sweetness comes from added vanilla and agave, keeping this treat both raw and soy-free. The crust is a crumbly and crunchy nut and date blend that stands up well to the filling. It’s far from the dense, indulgent traditional dessert, but it satisfies just the same.
