Vegan in Santa Monica

Eating vegan in Southern California is easier than any other place I've been. There were a few options within walking distance from our hotel in Santa Monica. The first one I wanted to try was Juliano's Planet Raw Cafe. I read an article in Men's Journal about Woody Harrelson, he and the interviewer went to this cafe, so I thought it would be cool to try. I liked that they mentioned something about eating desert first, and I am always curious about raw vegan food, but don't really plan on eating a raw diet at this point in my life.

I really loved the deserts here, and if I lived in this area I'd come back for them often. But the price tag was crazy-expensive! Oh, and there is also honey in some of the desserts.. and some of them are with agave nectar, so be sure to ask.

That same evening hubby and I got to go out to dinner by ourselves! We choose another restaurant within walking distance called Real Food Daily. I loved this place! It was very crowded and not very big, but the food was awesome. I ordered the soup of the day, Leek and Chickpea, the TV Dinner Meal- tempeh loaf with mashed potatoes, gravy, and veggies, and Tirimisu for desert.
