Buddha Bistro is a small cafe located inside the Om Yoga Center in Watertown. Owned and operated by Laure Proulx, it just may be our favorite little find to date. Laure’s philosophy is to provide simple, clean food, using fresh, local ingredients and great flavors. Each meal is cooked to leave you “feeling full, happy, healthy, and whole.” She has daily gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options, and even offers lunch delivery within the greater Watertown area. The menu has breakfast, small plates, salads, sandwiches available with GF bread, and, of course, Buddha bowls. Laure varies the sauces for the Buddha Bowls, just to keep things interesting. We had tahini with ours. She also bakes up lots of muffins and treats, including many gluten-free options, like the delicious raw carrot energy bites pictured below. Dessert trays and catering are also available.
So, if you you need a break from the chaos of everyday life, this is the place to go. With soft music playing and everyone there for the same, groovy reason, you’ll understand why we can’t wait to go back.
*Buddha Bistro is not a dedicated gluten-free facility, but they go to great lengths to ensure that your meal is safe. Ask your server for more details. And remember – we cannot guarantee the safety of any establishment. Always use your own judgement when eating out.
