Juices, smoothies, vegan, raw cuisine, local, organic. What else could we possibly want? Try an ice cold green smoothie or a slice of grilled gluten-free banana bread.

@workshopvegcafe | Visit website

A bright and cheery, modern Japanese cafe serving breakfast and lunch Monday to Saturday from 8-6. This family-run business specializes in ramen (try the mushroom broth with shallot-truffle oil), but offers warm acai bowls, avocado toast, buddha bowls and baked goods, too -- all vegetarian with many vegan options. Short on an ingredient? They might stock it in their mini-market adjacent the dining room.
