One of my favorite places in California is Santa Monica, so Im always super excited for a new vegan find in the area! Golden Mean is a quaint little vegan cafe situated on Wilshire Blvd. They have a great menu with salads, appetizers, sandwiches, entrees, pizzas, wraps, and some crazy amazing desserts! I decided to start my meal with an appetizer; the “Hummus of the Day” ($5.50) Fresh Homemade Hummus served with Fresh Vegetables. The hummus was so yummy, and I
loved the fresh veggies for dipping- very refreshing! To go along with my veggies I got the “When in Rome Salad with Veggie Chicken” ($10.50 + $2.00) Romaine Hearts, Red & Yellow Cherry Tomatoes, Pumpkin Seeds, Sweet Potato Cornbread Croutons, Creamy Hemp Caesar Dressing with pieces of ‘Veggie Chicken’. This salad had so much stuff going on and it was fantastic! It was like a different take on a traditional “caesar salad” BUT so much better!! The dessert case is crazy so it’s
hard to choose but somehow I did! I got a “Chocolate Mint Cookie” ($2.75) Vegan Batter filled with Chocolate Chips and a fresh Mint Flavor. I’ve never had a mint chocolate chip cookie before but this was so delicious! Im a big fan of mint desserts and this was a killer cookie!! I also got the “Vanilla Cheesecake“($5.95) Fresh Vanilla Cheesecake, Drizzled with Chocolate & Coconut with a Crispy Crust underneath. Im not a big ‘cheesecake’ type person but this definitely changed my mind. It
was creamy and crunchy and flavorful!! If you go to Santa Monica you should totally hit up Golden Mean! SO YUMMY! Keep it healthy all the time!
