This casual, cozy, friendly vegetarian café (with a couple of fish options on its menu) rounds up the usual suspects of herbivore cuisine: vegetables steamed or sautéed; salads; grilled-tofu sandwiches and simple macro plates. Stick to these most basic entrées—paired with one of the organic wines, beers or teas from an impressive chalkboard list—and you’ll be fine. More complex fare, such as the layered tempeh-vegetable napoleon, tend toward excessive oiliness. And beware: the blaring staccato rock music here is often a jarring intrusion on your meal.
