The Ultimate Guide to Veg Living in the Bay Area

There is an abundance of places to find plant-based food in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. With almost 90 strictly vegetarian, over 30 vegan restaurants and an incredible array of choices regarding vegetarian products and locally grown produce, the San Francisco Bay Area is (in our opinion) the most veg-friendly region in all of North America.

"Traditional Injera bread made with Teff, not white flour. Kaffa's Injera has a mild sourdough tang, and a rich taste. The plate of vegetables and legumes was great, lightly cooked, which preserved the flavors. A little spicy, and not oily. The Sambusa pastry with potato filling was not as interesting as the plate, and more oily. The Telba flax smoothie was very good, mildly sweet, flavorful."

"Delicious! Fortunately we got an even number so we didn't come to blows over splitting the last cupcake. My favorite was the strawberry. Puts Benicia on the map for #vegan food!"

"I love that such a healthy vegan place is in my not so vegan friendly neighborhood. (There is only 1 other vegan restaurant that I know of.) I had the Nourish Bowl and a chocolate banana smoothie. Both were excellent. The place seems pricey, but I know they use quality ingredients. On other visits I'll get just one thing at a time. Excellent food, excellent idea for a restaurant/take out place."

The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of 'real food for real people,' you'd better live real close to a real good hospital. - Neal D. Barnard, M.D.

This restaurant is a step above the typical veg restaurant -- delicious food, artfully presented, reasonable prices. Nearly all dishes can be made vegan, too. Bring your appetite and walking shoes, and enjoy the Bay Trail across the street.
