    there’s something for everybody at the spot in hermosa beach. whether you are looking for insanely decadent fare, or something light and healthy, the entirely vegetarian cozy beach cafe has got you covered. breakfast, lunch, dinner, beer, wine, you name it…the spot’s got it! we hit them up over the weekend, and as usual, absolutely loved our meal. plus, the spot is just a short walk away from naja’s place, one of our favorite beach area bars. nothing like a good old fashioned pub and grub.

    soup of the day: lima bean! $4.95

    we started our meal off with the soup of the day, which was lima bean, and it was excellent. super chunky and filled right up with chopped vegetables and hearty beans. all of the soups at the spot are extra healthy and oil-free, so i really should have gotten a full bowl of it instead of just a cup. when my spoon hit the bottom, i was still wanting more.

    savory garden burrito: with garden veggies, cheese and savory sauce (all non-dairy): $8.95

    guacamole burger: a homemade burger patty served on a wheat bun with guacamole and a side of almond rice: $8.95

    as many of my fellow imbibers know, the hermosa/redondo/manhattan/whatever beach areas are great places to find breweries and specialty beers. what i DIDN’T know until last weekend, is they are also great places to find uncharted vegan fare.

    after planning a day of drinking in hermosa beach, i decided to research some food options on the internet. one spot, a vegetarian restaurant, kept gaining my attention and outshining all the other restaurants with its glowing reviews. so of course, we had to give it a try…
