Today my mom and I went in around lunch time to get some goodies and we certainly did! My mom had her eye on the “Big Macro($9.95) Whole

mhm

Grain Brown Rice & Vegetable Burger, Special Sauce, Lettuce, Soy Mozzarella, Tomato, Pickles, Onion, and Sprouts on a House- Baked Whole Wheat Bun served with Coleslaw.  This is one of their most popular menu items and I can totally see why! The burger was moist and healthy tasting, and that special sauce just knocked it out of the park!! I’ve had

Fresh and Healthy!

the coleslaw in the past and it is killer, never disappointing!! All in all a GREAT burger, totally recommend it! We also split the “2 Signature Salad Combo($7.45) Beet Quinoa Salad and Peanut Kale Salad. So fresh, so healthy and so tasty! The kale was absolutely breath taking!! Kale is so healthy for you to! The Quinoa was just as delicious as could be.

scrumptious!

YUM, love me some healthy salads! We could not leave without having one of their amazing desserts! The “Chocolate Fudge Cake” ($6.25) Fresh Layers of Rich Dark Chocolate and a rich creamy Chocolate center. Mouth watering fabulous. Creamy, chocolaty, the best! YUMMY!

M Cafe.. ” I did it my way…”

...I did it my way....

So M Cafe on Melrose is one of the best places to grab a healthy bite to eat. They have a HUGE case of prepared foods or to go stuff, as well as in house ordering, and delicious baked goods. Everything is prepared healthfully and nutritious! I’ve been many times before and enjoyed every time; SEE. This review is of something I kind of create myself at M Cafe. First off my two favorite items on the menu is their BBQ Seitan Sandwich, and the M Chopped Salad– but obviously

ooey gooey Cinnamon Roll!

eating alone I can’t order both ( although they are so tasty I prob. could stomach it;)}.. Anyways, I order the “M Chopped Salad &BBQ Seitan My Way”($11.45) Hearts of Romaine & Mixed greens, , Cucumber, Chickpeas, Herb-Baked Tofu, Scallions, Umeboshi Pickled Radishes, Carrots, Beets, & Tofu-Peppercorn Ranch Dressing. YES! This is my favorite way to have this salad.. I’ve had numerous people ask me what that is because it looked so darn

Blueberry Bran..yummy!

good! (and it is) Really everyone, try this at least once.. I wish M Cafe would throw this lovely dish on their menu- 😉 Now to a couple of goodies that are on their normal menu.. The lovely woman at the counter told me that the Cinnamon Rolls were her favorite and absolutely amazing- I was told just by looking at them so thats what I got; “Cinnamon Roll” ($2.00 about?) Homemade Cinnamon Rolls made with Maple Syrup baked to perfection. This was an amazing cinnamon roll! It wasn’t super heavy or sweet. Very light and fluffy with a lovely icing! Scrumptious! Next up was the “Blueberry Bran Muffin” ($2.00 about) Bran Batter full of Fresh Blueberries. This was a nutritious and delicious muffin. . They bake everything so perfectly- never over cooked or undercooked just amazing! MHM! Thanks again for another lovely meal M Cafe. See you soon! Eat Clean & Green!

M Cafe: love.

Carolina Style BBQ Sandwich

So Im a huge fan of M Cafe on Melrose..the food is amazing and the staff is friendly:) I’ve reviewed M Cafe a couple of times before ..which you can see here. Today me and my mom decided to stop in for a nice lunch and some yummy baked goods before heading off to run errands.. Today we split the “ Carolina-Style BBQ Sandwich & Coleslaw” ($ 11.45) Thinly Sliced Grilled Seitan basted with their own Zesty BBQ Sauce & piled high on a House- Baked Whole Wheat Bun with Grilled Onions, Pickles, and Creamy Coleslaw. Total love at first

LOVE

bite my friends. The second my teeth sank into this sandwich my mouth lit up!! My mom has said this sandwich is a new favorite for her and I HAVE to agree. Seitan ( a wheat protein) is one of the best vegan proteins in my opinion. Very versatile for cooking, and I think you can fool a few carnivores with it;) The Coleslaw was one of the best as well. Shredded perfectly and seasoned to pure perfection. Really- M Cafe has some amazing food, and this sandwich should be on your list to try! For our dessert today we decided to split the ” Chocolate

Chocolate Mousse

Mousse($5.75) Light Vanilla Cake Layered with a Vegan Cream and Chocolate Mousse. Another home run! This mousse was light and creamy and decadent. I really love M Cafe’s dessert case, it is crazy good!! Well this is all for now! I think thats a lot of vegan madness for you to handle for today:) If your in LA make M Cafe your next place for a meal!!

M Cafe: Melrose

Inside

So before I arrived in LA today I already knew where I would be dining. “M Cafe” has 2 locations in LA ( Melrose/ Beverly Hills), offering up an almost entirely vegan menu with the exception of some fish. All of there food is prepared without the use of dairy, eggs,

Green Mint Tea ($2.5)

refined sugar and everything is prepared using organic ingredients. They also serve up select items from Babycakes Bakery. They have great breakfast items, sunday brunch, sandwiches, salads, a HUGE prepared food case, asian entrees, a kids menu, paninis, juices, and amazing desserts! The staff was so swift and friendly, which always makes the dining experience a little better- not that the food wasn’t good enough:). Let us begin shall we? I decided to get a couple of different things to try first off for my drink I got the “Mint Green Tea”($2.50) Fresh Brewed Green

Scarlet Quinoa ($3.95)

Tea with a hint of Mint. This was a great ice tea! I love that you get your own little bottle of it to pour from. love.love. now the food.. “Scarlet Quinoa Salad” ($3.95) Quinoa mixed with Red Beets, Cucumbers, and Lemon Zest. This was some amazing quinoa…let me tell

M Chopped ($11.45)

you.. a refreshing little appetizer with delicious veggies! For my main entree I had the “M Chopped Salad” ($11.45) Mixed Greens, Avocado, Cucumber, Chickpeas, Herb-Baked Tofu, Scallions, Ume-Pickled Radishes, Carrots, Beets, Tamari- Roasted

Mini Cookies ($1.75/3)

Almonds, and Crumbled Tempeh Bacon with Tofu-Peppercorn Ranch Dressing. So many amazing flavors combine to bring the salad to perfection.. and it certainly was.. I am in love with this salad.. I really believe I could eat this every day of my life without getting

Banana Creme Dessert ($4.25)

tired of it.. you have to try it!! Now dessert..always a favorite to review:). I had a hard time choosing which healthy treat to eat..seeing as they have SO many!! With some help from the counter staff I finally came to a decision. First I got “Mini Chocolate Chip

Mouth Watering..

Cookies” ($1.75 for 3) Mini Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies. These are the perfect little treat if you just want something tasty and sweet ( without sugar!) to tide you over. Not overly filling, but just right! YUM! Then comes the killer amazing dessert…”Chocolate Banana

Thats where it's at:) ..and Shia to:):)

Layer Cake” ($4.75) Layers of Creamy Chocolate Pudding with Fresh Banana with a Crust and Nuts mixed inside. This was one of the best tasting desserts ever to enter my mouth.. I could have eaten 10 of those things, fortunately I only ordered one;) .. this was like banana chocolate pudding madness. mhmmm another *must* try dessert at M Cafe:) Lastly something that made my dining experience 150% MORE exciting then it already was…?? As Im sitting there enjoying my vegan goodie, none other than the gorgeous and talented Shia Labeouf walks in… oh my word..and I thought the dessert was scrumptious;) .. I refrained from being obnoxious and harassing him- seeing as there was a lot of people there and he seemed to be in a hurry.. plus Im not huge on having to get a photo..trust me, I wont forget what he looked like;)..Something else to make your mouth water?? OK, hes at a vegan joint and orders a Green Juice to go.. let me say this: Nothing sexier to me than a man with a green juice, am I right my Vegan Health Nut Ladies? .*deep breath*. ..well thats all for now.. and quite enough I think:D.. Eat Clean, and Healthy and if your lucky with a vision of Shia not far away;)
