Garden Fresh (Palo Alto)

Monday, April 5th, 2010

We’ve been waiting since the new year to make this announcement:  Garden Fresh, a long-time favorite of the vegetarian community in Mountain View, has expanded to a second location in Palo Alto on Ramona Street.  Palo Alto now boasts two vegan restaurants.

Thanks to Elizabeth for the update!

Garden Fresh – new location in the new year

Friday, January 1st, 2010

Garden Fresh, a popular vegan Chinese restaurant in Mountain View, will be opening a new location later this year in Palo Alto, conveniently a short walk from the Caltrain station.  For many, Garden Fresh is synonymous with scrummy scallion pancakes.

Thanks to Doug for the heads-up!

Cafe Soulstice Closes Both Locations

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

Cafe Soulstice, a raw foods restaurant that operated within the Equinox Gym in San Mateo, and subsequently expanded to Palo Alto, has closed both restaurants.  Thanks to Judy for the update.

There are now only three vegetarian restaurants on the Peninsula:

Que seRaw seRaw – raw foods “to go” in Burlingame
Loving Hut – Palo Alto cafe with soups, salads, sandwiches
Annapoorna – Indian restaurant in San Mateo

Other Peninsula vegetarian restaurants that have closed in recent years include Stoa’s (Palo Alto; they switched from being vegetarian to non-veg before they closed), Bay Leaf Cafe (Palo Alto) and Vegetarian Gourmet (San Mateo).
