Vegetarian Cafe on Cornell Campus

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice

All-vegetarian cafe with many vegan options (including some deserts). Regularly has live music performances. ABC had been open since the early 1980s but closed in June 2009.

Brunch served Saturday and Sunday until 3 PM.

When I went to ABC Cafe, I noticed that there was nothing on the menu to indicate which items could be made vegan. The waitress explained that they are willing to make anything vegan by leaving out certain ingredients, but obviously some work better than others.

One caveat for vegans: the soy cheese contains casein. The staff seemed pretty aware of this fact, however, and made sure to steer me away from my original plan of ordering nachos with soy cheese.

I ended up having a seitan sandwich on garlic toast (made with soy margarine) and a glass of Ithaca chai. Both were delicious. On the night that I was there, ABC had vegan carrot cake for dessert.
