Coffee Garden

Coffee Garden

Every so often, I walk from my house to Coffee Garden on Franklin Boulevard. I don't drink coffee, but it's nice to sit there with a glass of iced tea and read a book or do a little writing. When I was there last week, I checked their menu to see if...

Food Foto Friday–Blue Bottle Coffee’s Belgian Wafel

Sep 5, 2014

Sometimes you just need a waffle.  Last weekend I was in San Francisco with some friends and we went to check out the uber-trendy Blue Bottle Cafe in Mint Plaza.  It was Labor Day, and there was a line around the corner.  It seemed to be moving quickly so we waited.  And waited. My...

Joe Caribé Bistro & Cafe

My husband Phil and I drove to Auburn this weekend so I could check out Joe Caribé Bistro & Cafe, a restaurant with Caribbean cuisine. There were a couple of menu items I especially wanted to try, and rather than choosing between them, I just ordered both and brought home lots of leftovers.

Fogo de Chão in San Jose: A Meat Lover’s Paradise!

When Andy and I visited San Jose a few weeks ago, we dined at a Brazilian churrascaria called Fogo de Chão (pronounced fo-go dée shown).

Happy Hour at Downtown & Vine

Lately, when I've wanted to go out with friends for drinks, I've discovered that it isn't that easy to find restaurants with vegan options on their happy hour menus. Tapa the World and Kasbah are vegan-friendly, as is Capital Dime, but most happy hour menus seem to have nothing for...

Wahoo’s Fish Taco

When I heard that a Wahoo's Fish Taco restaurant was opening in Midtown, I wasn't very interested. After all, what could a fish taco place possibly have on the menu for vegans? But when I checked out their website, I saw they actually had a few vegan options, so my son Zack...

Lotus Thai Cuisine

Since it's listed as vegan-friendly on Urbanspoon, I've wanted to try Lotus Thai Cuisine for some time now. The problem was that I could never find it. Driving down J Street near the Downtown Plaza, I couldn't see it, so I just kept on driving. I mu...
