Célestin’s is Back!

Normally, my weekly blog article gets posted on Sunday night, but I’m so excited about this one I can’t wait! The very first restaurant I wrote about for my Sacramento Vegan blog was Célestin’s Island Eats and Cajun Cuisine. Célestin’s had always been a favorite of mine, and I appreciated them all the more after I went vegan in 2002 …

Mod Pizza

Last month, someone asked on my Sacramento Vegan Facebook page where the best vegan pizza in Sacramento could be found. As you can imagine, people had lots of opinions on the subject! Buffalo Pizza, Pizza Bell, the Federalist, and some of the chain pizza parlors all made the list. There was one chain restaurant that two people mentioned, and I …

Icicles

A few days ago, I braved pouring rain and blustery winds to check out the newest ice cream shop offering vegan options in Sacramento. It’s not ice cream weather yet, but when a fellow vegan sent me information about Icicles, I had to check it out. Icicles is a Northern California chain that just opened a Sacramento location on Howe …

Pho Fresh

I’m actually kind of embarrassed to write about Pho Fresh in Rancho Cordova, as I’m sure I’m probably the only vegan in the Greater Sacramento area who had never been to this incredibly vegan-friendly restaurant until a few days ago. But since my friend Melissa and I went to dinner there Wednesday night and I was actually able to experience …

Thai Farm House BBQ & Bistro

After reading reviews in both the Sacramento News & Review and the Sacramento Bee, I decided I really needed to check out Thai Farm House BBQ & Bistro, which opened on Broadway and Riverside a few months ago. I couldn’t find a copy of the menu online, but the Bee’s reviewer said the restaurant was vegetarian-friendly, so I assumed they’d …

Road trip! Next Level Burger in Concord

When I went vegan many years ago, one of the things I really missed was a good burger. The soggy bean burgers or frozen processed veggie disks that restaurants passed off as their vegan options held no appeal for me. The recent appearance of extremely beef-like Beyond Burgers and Impossible Burgers in some local restaurants has been a dream come …

Backbone Cafe

Vegans who work downtown or have business at the courthouse (jury duty, perhaps?) will be happy to know about a great little café that just opened on J Street. Backbone Café is an organic restaurant offering several vegan options, and I definitely think you should check it out! I dropped by for lunch one day last week. The restaurant is …
