The OTHERside Cafe:

The first thing I did before heading to Boston was find a great place to get a vegan lunch! The OTHERside Cafe got my vote so my first stop was to Newbury Street for some OTHERside Cafe grub:) This place is suited for a more rocker type loud

Hummus Platter ($4.56)

experience. Not a place to go if you want a quiet peaceful lunch.. A lot of local students stop in and in general a younger crowd.. This cafe isn’t 100% vegan but MOST things can be made vegan and they have a BIG variety of vegan options.. Sandwiches, Soups, Wraps, Raw

Combination Plate ($9.81)

Dishes, Desserts, Salads, Smoothies, Burritos, and Brunch on the weekend. LOTS! I wanted to get a bit of variety to review so here goes.. I started off with the 1/2 Hummus Platter ( $4.56) House-Made Hummus Served with Tomato, Cucumber, Onion, Carrot, and Pita Bread. This was great! I loved that I can order the 1/2 ( whole is $9.75). The Hummus was fresh and creamy with pieces of Garlic to flavor it up with Crisp Veggies, and Thin Pita Bread. A fantastic light appetizer! Then I chose there Chili/Tempeh Salad Combo ($9.81) Vegan Chili made with

Bon Bons ($4)

Organic Beans, Tomatoes, Corn, and Bulgar Wheat. Served with Grilled Tempeh Salad with Mixed Greens, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Onions, and Carrots. The Chili was spectacular thick and full of fresh veggies and seasoned just right! Very filling and hearty! The

Simple Divine.

Salad was pretty simple, I love tempeh but it could have used a bit more seasoning.. I wasn’t overly impressed with the salad but the chili was kickin;) and for dessert…try not to drool as I explain what I had.. “Chocolate Cookie Dough Bon Bons ($4.00) 2 round Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Balls. These things were packed with Antioxidants and fresh Vegan Cookie Dough.. Smooth and Crunchy Chocolate Chips covered with Melting Chocolate.. Oh my word  absolutely DIVINE.. They just melted in my mouth ( they also offer Peanut Butter Bon Bons) These are not made on the premises but shipped in from Sugar Me – a pure genius!… I love the fact that they’ve created vegan cookie dough as a treat – I mean it’s perfect for kids… “raw” cookie dough that can’t hurt you?!! They think of everything! These should be at the top of your Vegan dessert hit list my friends.. you have no idea what your missing…. This place  had a great vibe and a great staff! So check it out!!

Expresso Royale Caffe:

ERC- Newbury Street.

So on my day meandering around Boston, I came across a quaint little coffee and tea type shop Expresso Royale Caffe. They serve up green and organic coffees, teas, regular desserts, vegan

Tea Cake ($3)

desserts ( which is why i went in), bagels, breakfast sandwiches, tofu cream/cheese spreads and wraps. This place was filled with local college students studying up

Delicious!

while enjoying a nice cup of joe:) Expresso Royale Caffe has 3 locations in Boston, I visited the one on Newbury Street ( the “Rodeo Drive” of Boston if you will) . They had 3 different vegan goodies but I decided to try the ” Tea Cake” ($3.00) Wheat Batter filled with Chocolate Chips, Dried Fruit, and Banana  molded to a perfect cake for one. This was really delicious and very much enjoyed with a cup of there jasmine green tea! A filling scrumptious vegan goody that I was happy I stumbled upon! The staff was friendly, and they kept very busy! If your ever touring around Boston, Newbury Street is a must so while your there make a stop in at ERC for a hot cup of somethin’ and a little vegan treat! Eat Clean and Green!

Peace, Love, and Vegan Food,
