Cafe This Way somehow manages to be both trendy and family-friendly. The food offerings and the decor are more typical of a hip spot for 20-somethings but I noticed that there were a number of families with young children in the restaurant and no one seemed to mind (the waitress even brought them children's menus and plastic cups to drink from).

The portions at Cafe This Way are very generous and there are a large number of vegetarian options on the menu. I was particularly impressed with the vegan caviar, which was salty and had an eerily realistic texture. It came mixed with marinated mushrooms and served over a bed of seaweed salad. My cashew-encrusted tofu was also very good. I was a little disappointed with the lack of vegan dessert options, but the three melon-infused vodka made a nice after dinner apertif.

Addendum: The brunch options aren't nearly as exciting for vegans. The tofu scramble has no flavor on its own, so you have to choose your toppings carefully. The veggie sausage and veggie bacon are sadly not vegan (they have egg whites in them).
