Cyclist- and vegetarian-friendly restaurant.

Restaurant Details

A cyclist hangout—­the bar stools are made from chrome rims, vintage bikes hang from the patio fencing, and there are specials for messengers on Mondays­—this is a theme restaurant that doesn’t feel precious. The food is cheap and vegetarian friendly: most entrees are under $10, and the only meat option is fish. The chefs don’t do anything flashy, but they do a little bit of everything and do it well—the samosas with tamarind chutney, for example, are on par with any you’d find on Devon. The kitchen also does a bang-up job with comfort food: seitan and tofu sandwiches come with a variety of sides including a respectable vegetarian version of southern collard greens and a totally addictive smoked Gouda mac 'n' cheese I’ll crave on my deathbed.
