    I can never resist getting the plant burger every time, although they recently changed the bread which I don't like as much.

    Order the pesto tofu scramble for breakfast and thank us later. Ditto the quinoa bowl for lunch or dinner. But beware, service is less than speedy. Read more

    Try the veggie burger. It has beets, lentils, mushrooms, cashews, and bulgur. Top it with avocado and white cheddar, or wasabi, raspberry aioli, and sauerkraut (the latter option is vegan).

    One of the best-kept secrets on the Embarcadero. Indoor or outdoor seating, good cocktails, and some of the best pizzas you'll find. Just avoid the vegan cheesecake as it is crazy awful.
