On the eastern end of Sunset Junction sits this homey café which feels like one of those East Village Hungarian restaurants that have been dishing up beef pierogies since Allen Ginsberg’s day. Instead, you’re much more likely to see a member of the Like dining on Eastsider Tacos (seitan topped with cashew cheese) or one of the five tasty burgers (the portobello seitan is a favorite). Sit outside and people watch as locals, all in various states of stylish dishevelment, walk by. Be sure to order one of the vegan desserts—we love the excellent lemon berry cake—which are on display in the deli cases. Many of the carbs here are gluten- free, including the pancakes, and GF substitutes are readily available. And if you’re here with an uncoinvinced friend, just promise them a stop at the Silverlake Cheese Store nearby.

A wonderful variety of vegan food! It's hard to find a place with so many vegan options that are delicious. Serving sizes are great, their smoothies are amazing, and the place is very homey! My only note is that the service could be better. Our waitress got our orders wrong and seemed like the only one available for a packed lunch hour.
The things Flore does well, they do REALLY well. See: chocolate peanut butter cheesecake, tofu "egg" salad, tempeh reuben.
I love th solid vegan are here—it's not trying to be too trendy or inventive, it's just sticking to staples that have done well for years. There are loyal locals here, and the spot is quite small, so sometimes getting a table is tough, but it's worth the wait if you're in the mood for something meatless.
