Decided to go up the hill instead of downtown (crazy busy for some reason) BRIGHT IDEA! Try the Paradise Vegan Cafe. Sure glad we did. A tiny spot (maybe 30 seats), attentive service albeit a bit slow ... but ... remember, good food takes time to prepare. And good it was. We had the Combo #2 with noodles. More than I wanted for lunch but ... it's vegetarian, so how heavy can it be ... NOT AT ALL! Loved every mouthful. Who knew faux-chicken could taste so good. It's in the Crest Mall on 10th (border of New West and Bby. Do give it a try. You'll be glad you did.
