One of my faveorites on a recent vacation. between the 4 of us in the car we sampled multiple rolls, all of them amazing. My only regret was not getting another one on out last day in the bay area.

Amazing vegan burger and dogs. Great chili cheese fries as well. They make their condiments on sight and all are tasty, but the mustards may have too much punch for some people.

If your dining with omnivores this is a cant miss place.

A very relaxing place with a menu that is a mix of of east and west, The smoothies are amazing. t=The Filly and the Orange chick-un are both great. The Chick-un parmigana was good but a bit salty.

Hugo's Tacos in Los Angeles, California

Hugo's has very tasty vegan tacos, taquitos, burrtios, churros and a house made vegan ice cream called frozato.

I loved everything on the menu save for the ice cream. The Ice cream was not bad it just was not as outstanding as the other menu items sampled.

A wide array of chalky slightly off flavors of vegan ice cream. I wouldn't return.

Cute small vegan restraunt in a strip mall. The menu is a mix of Thai, Mexican and American food with lots of mock meats.

The 4 of us dining had a little bit of everything on the menu all of it was delicious! An added bonus is the Thai Iced coffee, something I have been pining for since I went vegan. The coffee alone is worth a visit.

A mix of American and Mexican inspired items. The food is good but the tempeh bacon should be avoided, it is more of a cracker than anything, and on the bland side.

Nice relaxing atmosphere in an anti-mall. The beer battered avocado tacos are amazing, as are the purple potto taquitos. I was a little less jazzed about their jackfruit tacos. Make sure to try a pop tart on your way out!

Vegan Pizza in Orange County, California

rating star

On a recent visit to SoCal that featured a multi day stay at Disney Land, this place was a life saver. The pizzas are amazing, the Hawaiian is one of the best pizzas I have had anywhere. The BBQ Chikun and Cheese Steak pizzas cant be missed either. On the less than great side were the chili cheese fries, they were not good.

Gracias Madre in San Francisco, California

Where to begin the restaurant and food all look very nice. That is where my positive commentary ends.

The food was bland beyond belief the gorditas were ok, but everything else our party of 4 had was flavorless and expensive beyond all reason.

Oh and service was all around horrible. I will never go back.

Tasty vegan sandwiches with lots of fake meat and cheese. Beware, the wheat contains honey, and make sure to tell them your sandwich will be vegan so they can adjust accordingly. Oh the sour dough bread is awesome and sometimes they run out.

My personal faves: the Ugly Owl and the Natalie Wood both veganized of course!

Their vegan burrito was ok, although I could have done with out the mango salsa. Vegan horchata was great. The service was on the rushed that quickly turned to rude. We were told to wait out side when one of our party was in the restroom at the end of the meal. The prices were out of line witht eh service and quality of the place as well.

We stumbled on this place quite by accident while visiting my in-laws, we were amazed at the number of vegan options. Great coffee, delicious cookies and I can't wait to try the regular food items.

No hummus sandwich was available, there was a big blank were it went on the menu board, adding hummus to the garden pita would have meant a sizable extra charge. Since I am allergic to eggplant the babaganuche was right out.

Great place, I wish they would open another one, preferably in Minneapolis or St Paul. My wife and I enjoyed it very much, and it is much tastier than Chipotle. My one complaint is their hot salsa while tasty is not even a little bit hot.

Its pizza Luce what can you say, although the staff were unsure what could be made vegan even if it was stated on the menu, and alas the Mexican food appears to no longer have any vegan options.

They now have a good handle on the vegan thing, the host/server person was very helpful, and the food was very good, the Mongolian tofu does indeed rock the house. the mock duck in garlic sauce was tasty too.

Lots of useful vegan items, although a bit more pricey than in the metro. The down side: most of the vegan items we sampled from the deli were um bad. Although the muffins and the tempeh salad were not bad. At least you can sample items before you buy from the deli.

Brasa, was quite a shock, I always assumed that there would be nothing there for vegans, I was very wrong. The black beans and rice are amazing, as are the chips and guac are great too, My favorite item on the menu are the crispy yuca fries. All the vegan items(check their web site) are fresh and tasty.

A very filling and tasty meal can be made of the vegan sides and the house sodas are great as are the wide variety of hot sauces.

The place had a very laid-back vibe, The interior is a bit beat down but the food is amazing, the best vegan sandwiches in the city, i just wish it was open for dinner during the week, The Jonathan Richman and Voyeur Melt are particularly tasty,

My wife and I stopped by Namaste Cafe for the first time this week. The atmosphere, was very relaxing, and the space was cozy. The food was amazing, all vegan items were clearly labeled. We had the spicy fried potatoes appetizer, the kala chana and the tofu with potatoes and peas. All were amazing and they did spicy that was fairly hot and very flavorful. We will be returning to Namaste Cafe, soon!

Had a great lunch here, could have ate so much more than we did, it was so good, and so many varieties of veggie sushi that it can be a different meal every time.

I went there for the first time tonight, I loved what I had and my dining companion was very happy with hers too. I think next time I will for sure try the tofu spring rolls. I was having trouble figuring out just what to get though. I think it might be worth it to become a regular.

Bland bland bland food, and the tofu tasted odd in a non definable way. The dishes we had had almost nothing for flavor. Table service was fast though.
