Many macrobiotic and vegan options but beware of their soups, unfortunately they use a bouillon base that is not vegetarian. We’ve been trying to get them to use one of the many fine vegan bouillons but no luck so far. Please gently let them know how you feel about this and maybe they will change it eventually. Menu: Has International and Middle Eastern foods, hummus, salads, sandwiches, falafel, burrito, stir-fry and pastas. Tofu can be substitute for meat in many of the dishes. Fresh juices, smoothies, non-dairy shakes and desserts. Full service, take-out.
