Vegetarian Mediterranean restaurant with many vegan options

Sage Cafe is a vegetarian restaurant with a Persian-inspired menu. They use fresh and organic ingredients when possible, and offer a number of vegan options which are clearly marked on the menu. Many non-vegan options can also be made vegan by request. Dinner entrees include a variety of spiced vegetable stews, including those featuring tempeh, tofu, and soy "chicken." They also make a vegan chocolate cake, made with carob and bananas, served with soy ice cream.

A great option for vegetarians and vegans. Mostly vegan & the vegetarian can be made vegan easily. Delicious Persian ethnic dishes, entrees & lunch options, including tempe, soy chicken, seitan. Try the OSH.
Small, quiet, great decor, an excellent choice before the theater or while doing errands in the shopping center. Limited menu. Have gone back over and over again. A favorite.

This is a good restaurant but beware if you are a vegetarian that eats cheese, because I've asked and they DO NOT ascertain that all cheeses served are made from rennet and enzymes from non-animal sources. In fact I was told that the American Cheese in one of their wraps was definitely not veg and contained animal rennet.
