Lunch at Cafe Eclectic

Posted By on Wed, Oct 20, 2010 at 5:02 PM


Generally, I lean toward the vanilla-ice-cream approach. When you've got the solid basics — like a good vanilla ice cream — why mess it up with unnecessary add-ins?

But the black bean wrap ($8.95) at Cafe Eclectic blows my theory to smithereens. There's a lot going on inside this one simply named wrap.

Last week I stopped by Republic Coffee for lunch and ordered the Pedro, a nice barbecue-style sandwich with tofu, slaw, and chipolte sauce ($7).

Happy World Vegetarian Day

Fuels veggie burger
  • Fuel's veggie burger

Today is World Vegetarian Day, and I have to say that, locally, I've been encouraged by the openings of three restaurants in the last year that strive to have interesting and inventive vegetarian options: Fuel, Three Angels Diner, and Trolley Stop Market.
