I was so pleased with this restaurant. The interior design is so unlike everything else in the neighborhood so the classy vibe, table cloths, candles, and music really make it stand out. The food was also really affordable, about $8-12.

The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of vegan items. I ordered the vegan "meatball" sandwich because I heard it's sometimes out of stock. The meatballs are homemade from mostly lentil and mushrooms and are tasty, but are slightly soft. The sandwich comes with either a salad or pasta salad. I'm a big fan of pasta salad so that's what I went with but was disappointed with it, as it was just pasta, tomato, olive oil, red onion, and a little parsley. It didn't have much flavor, but the flavor it did have was mostly raw onion.

I have to say that my favorite part of the meal was the bread I got at the beginning. Apparently Centro Cafe brings out fresh bread as an appetizer and a small platter, to which you can add the olive oil, red wine vinegar, and spices, which they have on the table. Classy and delicious.
