Restaurant Review: Magnolia Bistro in Burlington, VT!

magnolia bistro southwest burger

I found Magnolia Bistro entirely by accident when my mom and I were vacationing in Burlington, VT last week.  A Google search led me to the menu on their website, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it contained a lot of vegan-friendly options.  It also holds the distinction of being Green Restaurant certified [...]

Restaurant Review: The Sprout in Mount Pleasant, SC!

I’m quickly discovering just how nasty the humidity is here in SC.  We get humid days in NY, of course, but down here they don’t mess around.  It really makes you appreciate the importance of carrying water everywhere, plus makes your body crave something refreshing after a morning spent out in the sun. Enter The [...]

Restaurant Review: Black Bean Co. in Charleston, SC!

Yesterday my mom and I arrived in Charleston, SC for a “last hurrah” vacation before the end of summer.  Since going vegan (Two years ago!  Has it been that long already?), I’ve made it a habit to scope out places to eat before heading off anywhere.  I was particularly impressed by the vegan wraps on [...]

Restaurant Review: All Good Bakers in Albany, NY!

If you’ve read this blog for a while, you’ve probably noticed that I usually go out to eat only when I’m on vacation.  It’s rare that I hit up a restaurant while I’m home.  In a land of diners and “bar & grill” places, I always assumed it was too much of a hassle to [...]

Restaurant Review: The Loving Cafe in Delmar, NY

The Loving Cafe is located at 318 Delaware Ave. in Delmar, NY, at the former site of Java Jazz Cafe.  Since the disgusting heat finally seems to have broken around here, I ventured out today for lunch with my mom. Like Java Jazz, the cafe serves coffee, tea, and a variety of specialty coffee drinks.  [...]

Interview with Carolyn Woodard of Loving Cafe in Delmar, NY!

One downside of living in a largely rural area is the lack of vegan options at most restaurants.  Therefore I’m especially excited to present this special post!  I was able to interview Carolyn Woodard, owner of the soon-to-be-open Loving Cafe, a vegan restaurant right in the heart of Delmar, NY.  Delmar is a bit of [...]

Cafe Review: Green Bean in Northampton, MA

I’m not a terribly big fan of brunch.  I have my eating schedule pretty much down to a science and get a little weirded out by any changes in structure or timing.  However, when I’m on vacation, I try to let go of the reins a little bit and give myself some leeway to enjoy [...]

Restaurant Review: Esselon Cafe in Hadley, MA

After spending yesterday morning ogling ourselves silly at the Eric Carle Museum, Mom and I decided to try out Esselon Cafe in Hadley for lunch.  We got coffee and tea there the last time we were in MA, both of which were excellent.  The coffee is roasted on the premises twice a week, meaning awesomely [...]

Restaurant Review: Karma in Northampton, MA

The last time I ventured over to Northampton, MA with my mom, a restaurant called Karma was just getting ready to open on Main Street.  The promise of raw food, green juice, fresh elixirs and smoothies made me want to eat there, but unfortunately we had to return home before their opening day. This time [...]

Restaurant Review: Shalimar in Latham, NY

On a recent drive through Latham, my mom and I noticed a new Pakastani-Indian restaurant had opened up in the Peter Harris Plaza.  It’s called Shalimar, though apparently it’s not related to the other area restaurants with the same name.  We noticed that they offered both eat-in and takeout, including a lunch buffet midday.  I’m [...]
