Ultimate Guide Reviews
Potala Organic Cafe A friend and I had lunch at Potala on Saturday. The food was excellent. I had the medium plate, which is the smaller of the two sizes, and it was a lot of food. Everything was tasty and healthy. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very pleasant, too. I'll be going back there soon. 5 stars 2012-02-06
Radiance Cuisine at Open Secret Bookstore I love this restaurant. The food is vegan, healthy and delicious. The owners (Jerry and Kilimba) are always there making sure that everything is done to perfection. It's very informal; you order and pay at the register, then they call your name when your food is ready. 5 stars 2011-12-22
Scream Sorbet This is the BEST sorbet I've ever had. The fruit flavors taste just like the real fruit only better. The nut based sorbet is rich and creamy like ice cream. It's expensive but well worth the price. 5 stars 2011-07-07
Flacos Went on Saturday for lunch. I love the new restaurant, and the food is excellent. I had the soft tacos plate. The mole sauce is wonderful, as are the rice and beans. I tried the horchata (rice milk drink) and it's a new favorite drink now. Everything was great. 5 stars 2010-05-03
Souley Vegan A friend and I split the Everything Platter. Everything was very tasty. My favorites were the Southern Fried Tofu and the Potato Salad, but it was really hard to choose. The Cornbread was excellent, also. Then I had Sweet Potato Pie for dessert, and that was the ultimate - so sweet and creamy, the best I've ever had. I'd go back there any time I was in the area. The server was very friendly. 5 stars 2009-11-16
The Stanford Inn I really enjoyed this place. The rooms are nice, all with fireplaces, and most with views. The food is all veg, and mostly vegan. Breakfast is included - best pancakes I've ever had. Dinner is rather expensive, but worth it. In the afternoon, they provide wine, tea and snacks in the lobby, as well as treats brought to your room. Nice people, great service. 5 stars 2008-10-27
Central Vegetarian Cuisine It's great that there is now a veg restaurant in Alameda. The menu is very much like Golden Lotus in Oakland. Everything is not vegan, so you need to be sure to specify if you want vegan.Food was very good, except for the Black China cake, which was very stale. So be sure to ask if the cake if fresh that day before you buy it. 4.5 stars 2008-05-09
Cha-Ya It's so nice to eat lunch in an all vegan restaurant! I'd recommend all the dishes I tried: the avocado roll was very good; the tempura was excellent, not oily like some others I've had, and it comes with rice and a really good soup as a first course; the ice cream sundae was a great end to a very enjoyable meal. 4.5 stars 2008-01-30
New World Vegan Everything I've had here has been good. They have a large selection of vegan dishes. I especially like their variety of vegan desserts. 4 stars 2008-01-27
Sol Food This place is really good. The Vegetariano platter is very tasty and nicely presented. Next time I'll try the vegan coconut pudding. 4 stars 2007-10-04
Bangkok Thai Express The menu includes many items that are vegan or can be made vegan. Lunch specials are very reasonably priced and include two vegan options (garlic veggies and pad thai - no egg). The food is excellent, the staff pleasant and friendly. 4 stars 2007-08-30
Pizza Plaza I thought the pizza was excellent. We tried the pesto veggie and the chick-fu. Both were very tasty. We gave the edge to chick-fu because of the sun dried tomatoes. The crust is whole grain with perfect texture, the pesto sauce was great, and there were lots of toppings with not too much cheese, which is best on a vegan pizza. I'd rate them 5+. The cheesecake was excellent, too. 5 stars 2007-08-26
Golden Lotus I still say this is the best vegan restaurant in the East Bay. I can't believe it has fallen out of the top ten. New discovery: Teriyaki "Chicken" served on a bed of fresh spinach. All dishes are great. Favorites: too many to list; try the carmelized chicken. 5 stars 2006-09-03
Manzanita Restaurant Really enjoyed the Sat. buffet. Greens were excellent, as well as the other vegetable dish. The rice patties with gravy were very tasty, salad mix was good with great dressing. Friendly people, too. 5 stars 2005-11-23
Animal Place The tour was great, and the up-close interaction with the animals was something we rarely have a chance to do. I highly recommend it. 5 stars 2005-08-07
BayLeaf Cafe The wraps are wonderful-tasty and filling. They have specials you can taste if not sure what you want. Desserts include Maggie Mudd ice cream. Nice touch - AR/veg books to read while you wait. 5 stars 2005-07-28
Hobee's Breakfast includes all you can eat oatmeal. Many great vegan toppings to add, including coconut, nuts, dried fruit. Too bad the baked goods are not vegan. Also on menu - tofu scramble. 3 stars 2005-07-28
Gelateria Naia This is a great place when you want a real treat. The gelato is wonderful: creamy and delicious. Everything is presented beautifully- fresh fruit or nuts on top of each flavor to show what's in it. 5 stars 2005-04-11
Fellini Saturday Brunch: Great vegan selection. Menu states all vegan dishes prepared in "vegan-only" pans. Owner really wants vegan clientele. Ranked 4 only because not vegan-only restaurant, otherwise 5! 4 stars 2005-03-20
Sparks I went to Sparks for my second time on Sunday for brunch. The benedict was great. My sister had the blueberry pancakes, which were yummy. We took home a peanut butter bar - don't miss those! 5 stars 2004-08-23
Whole Foods Market This is my favorite place to shop, for the great vegan food and for people watching. Great selection of vegan and organic foods. Expensive. 4 stars 2004-05-13
Lucky Creation Taro fish is really good. Restaurant is very small, but the people are friendly. I enjoyed it. 3 stars 2004-05-10
Alameda Natural Grocery For a small store, they have lots of vegan items. Unfortunately, there is also a fish market inside the same building, so be ready to hold your nose. 4 stars 2004-05-10
