We visited the Purple Cafe in Kirkland Washington on Friday night. I had the joy of eating a smoked mushroom, quinoa burger for my entree. It was amazing! I would love to make these yummy "burgers" at home. Can you find the recipe? We would love that so much!

Vedge in Philadelphia. I love that they focus on veggies and doing creative things with them. The menu changes but I've loved everything I've ever gotten there. Cant go wrong with any mushroom or potato dish. Also, the desserts are unexpected very well done. I had a habanero coconut spice cake dessert that was amazing.

Im am a newbe vegan, straight from meat eatting and my whole family is on board encluding our dogs. We just recently visited the "Udipi Cafe a vegetarian Cuisine" in Tampa, FL. A must go. Family friendly Indian food and Ohh so good. I really enjoyed a dish called "Sada Mysore Dosai" and for you vegan's they are more than helpful to pick out the non dairy items on the menu.

SunCafe Organic, Studio City/Hollywood - Kale Shake - Doesn't sound it but it's wildly decadent cashew milk shake that wins over all converts. Meat eating friends beg me to go to this restaurant!

Veggie Heaven in Teaneck, NJ; Gotta try the Roast Boneless "Chicken". But then all the dishes are a must-try.

Little Africa, Grand Rapids, Michigan Lovely restaurant, fantastic black coffee, food is amazing. Our favorite way to order: a platter for two, chef's choice. Everything comes on a bed of injera. A must-try if you're in the area. (Fulton Street)

I visited my daughter in Portland OR., this summer and she took me to The Bay Leaf restaurant on Division St. This vegetarian restaurant has the best pot stickers that I have ever had. In addition to the wonderful food, the ambiance is very zen, and the price is right too!

One of the readers wrote that they drove 2 hours, all the way from Wisconsin to eat at the Chicago Diner. My brother-in-Law and his girlfriend did one better: They flew in from Rockville, MD, took a cab to Chicago Diner for lunch and flew back home! Now THAT's doing lunch, vegan style...

My favorite veg restaurant is The Veggie Grill in Irvine California. Their must try dish is the All Hail Kale salad . This salad is packed with flavor, good for you and under ten dollars.
