Nice simple vegan food

A nice place to have lunch if you are vegan. Good variety and the food we had (The M chopped salad and a tempeh sandwich) was tasty.

Two vegans and two vegetarians went to this vegan/veggie friendly restaurant. We appreciated the choices and creativity on the menu. Two of us loved our dishes, and two liked them, but when asked 'would you order it again?', said that they would try something else. If you go - and you like sweet potato fries - their's are a MUST!... More

This is a great place to get a large deli sandwich on awesome bread, create you own coke and the sides are amazing.

As a celiac, it is so difficult to find gluten free restaurant when traveling. I am so sick and tired of restaurants that offers only salads as GF food. Then I ran into this restaurant. There are so many options for celiac and the food is so tasty. I went there twice. Both time I ordered the M cafe Macro... More

I stumbled on this place and was surprised how good it its. They have a great variety of delicious foods. Not the typical pretentious vegan air but rather good food from very nice people. They answered questions and were very helpful.

My husband located this gem on our last visit to LA. I have a new favorite go to spot! Seriously, the food was incredible, and healthy. I only wish M cafe would open a location in S Florida!

Delicious, with great location and outdoor seating. M Cafe is one of my favorite lunch spots for whole food. Bench style seating sets a community style atmosphere. TRY THE KALE LEMONADE. Delicious. For a great tasting, healthy lunch of whole food ingredients definitely stop by M Cafe.

Ate here for breakfast/brunch on a Saturday in January. Lots of solid vegan options. I had the Vegan Benedict w/ smoky tempeh bacon, tofu scramble, sliced tomato & steamed kale on grilled ciabatta, topped with soy hollandaise & chives. Delicious. Sat outside and enjoyed the warm sun. Good coffee. I can't wait to go back and try some of the... More
