May Flower There is a wide range here: I really enjoyed the mango "chicken," which had quite a lot of mango and the house vegetable plate had goji berries! Everything is tasty, nothing ix exceptional. May Flower compares favorably to Long Life Vegi which is across the street: Unlike Long Life, May Flower has vegi fish options, does not serve egg drop soup before every meal, and uses no MSG. 4.5 stars 2010-03-22
La Cascada I love La Cascada. The produce is fresh, they know what vegan is and are happy to be accomodating, and their burritos are creative. Even if something isn't vegan (the thai burrito, for example) they'll sub out meat for tofu OR extra veggies if you ask. 4.5 stars 2010-03-22
MaggieMudd The coconut milk based ice cream is AMAZING. Freshly made waffle cones are delicious. The soy ice cream is fine. The brownies are straight up bad. The atmosphere...well, there isn't any atmosphere. But I really can't take points off because THEY HAVE AMAZING ICE CREAM IN HOMEMADE WAFFLE CONES!!! Who am I to complain because they also offer a brownie I don't want? 5 stars 2010-03-22
Ethiopia Restaurant This is a regular go-to restaurant of mine. Vegan food without reliance on soy or gluten. Everything is delicious. Go with a group and get 2 or 3 combination platters and the lentil sambousas. I docked 1/2 a point because they routinely get my order wrong -- still vegan, still tasty. Just not what I ordered. 4.5 stars 2010-03-22
Great Wall The food is fine and inexpensive. Nothing to rave about but not much to complain about, either. Solid vegan options not much in the way of fresh food. Mostly tofu and gluten. Be sure to specify you don't want egg drop soup. 3.5 stars 2010-03-22
Lanesplitter Pizza & Pub The vegan pizza is a mild tasting tofu concoction and they pile it on thick -- I don't like globs and globs of tofu on my pizza. But I like it when I get one piece with the "notta ricotta" and one with other and then spread the toppings and cheese around. So there's potential. The salads are huge and full of beans. The staff is knowledgeable about vegan options (including which beers to get). 4 stars 2010-03-21

Fellini Food is not as good as it used to be (pre 2008) and prices are the same or higher :-( However, they make a good effort to make most of the menu Vegan friendly. Pizza options are limited but you can ask for what you want, entrees are sometimes fantastic and sometimes very blah. Brunch is mostly processed food -- a lot of fake meat and tofu scramble. But there are many vegan options. 3.5 stars 2010-03-21
Udupi Palace Really tasty and not highly processed. I really like the dosas and love that the thali can be made vegan -- plus its all pretty cheap! However, "what is vegan" seems to depend on who you ask and we have complained that something was contaminated and the server "picked out" unwanted items from our food rather giving us something new. Not cool! Haven't seen that server in a while, though. 4 stars 2010-03-21
Raw Energy Organic Juice Cafe Oh, I love them. I pick up some juice and a packet of raw nuts when I'm being good and don't want coffee. They're super friendly folks who want you to be happy and healthy and will give you what you ask for. I don't understand why they serve raw AND processed tofu burgers, but who cares so long as they're serving delicious raw juices, smoothies, and flatbreads! Yummy, yum. 5 stars 2010-03-21
Bobby Gs Pizzeria The cheese is thin and mild, I can barely taste it. Same with the tomato sauce. But the produce is always fresh and the toppings are tasty. Reasonable prices for vegan pizza. Gluten free crust is available, too. I like that soy-cheese pizza is the same price as cow-cheese pizza. And its nice to eat pizza and check your email or drink a beer with friends. 4 stars 2010-03-21
Flacos I don't normally eat processed foods like gluten, isolated soy protein, or fried food but...I CAN'T STAY AWAY! Soooo delicious. Love their avocado salsa, love their tamales, love their taquitos. Worth the indulgence -- but I always feel like I've eaten processed food afterward :-( 4 stars 2010-03-21
Green Papaya I've been here several times. Its standard Thai fare, nothing special but worth a visit to be sure there's no fish sauce. Tasty appetizers. Almost everything has tofu. I usually leave with a greasy feeling unless I stick to the cucumber salad and fresh coconut :-( 3.5 stars 2010-03-21
Chick-O-Peas - The Falafel Place Not the best falafel I've ever had, but still good. Same with the fries. I like the topping bar. The vegan baklava doesn't quite taste like baklava, I'm not sure why, but it still tastes good. 4.5 stars 2010-03-21
Cafe Gratitude Since I started eating about 80% raw, I've come to appreciate this place more -- but I still find it hit or miss. And its so expensive, I can't afford to "miss" on a salad. Luckily the dessert is always right on. I recommend sticking to dessert. 4 stars 2010-03-21
Taste of the Himalayas I've been here a couple of times and I always find the food to be kind of bland. Not bad. Just not very flavorful... It is a beautiful setting and the servers are friendly and knowledgable. There are vegan choices. But it isn't worth the money for the food when there are so many vegan options nearby. 3 stars 2010-03-21
Thai Delight Easily my favourite place to eat. Vegan food is clearly marked, as is organic food. The curries are delicious, the appetizers are delicious, brown rice is available, the servers stay out of your way. The pra ram is a mountain of vegetables with some tofu and generous amounts of peanut sauce, instead of tofu heavy with token vegetables. Omni friends like it too. 5 stars 2010-03-21
Cha-Ya I've probably had everything on the menu and I haven't disliked anything. Everything is delicious. I eat a lot of vegan/Buddhist Japanese food so this is "comfort" food for me and they do it well. Not good for big groups (really small place!) and there's frequently a line -- be sure to get there early. 5 stars 2010-03-21
Herbivore I like Herbivore just fine. There's nothing wrong with it. But there's nothing spectacular about it, either. I've never had anything that I hated and nothing I thought was stellar. Its all just...fine. Another way of saying that is that its hard to go wrong, almost everything is satiating and pleasant enough. 4 stars 2010-03-21
