M is for Marvelous!.
M Cafe seamlessly merges the old with the new. Old traditions of eating greasy burgers and heart attack steaks are replaced by Macro burgers, grilled seitan, and baked tempeh. If you don't know these words, expand your horizons and visit the M Cafe on Brighton in Beverly Hills (or one of the other 3 locations!).
Greeted by a zen-inspired standing fountain by the door, you enter a world of crisp white and garden green. Don't expect the typical hippie atmosphere you think of when you hear "vegan," this place is super chic. Clean & bright displays showcase their delicious desserts and salads -- don't expect to find ANY dairy, red meat, poultry, refined sugars, or eggs (otherwise known as cholesterol) in their foods. Refreshing to me, and my body, and the earth!
The concept is based on ancient traditions of macrobiotic balanced foods. This is an "order & pay up front" type of restaurant which is great for those looking to eat well during a lunch break and head out as soon as you're done or looking for a hearty yet healthy meal during a shopping trip.
I loved the M Chopped Salad with Tofu, Crumbled Tempeh "bacon" bits, Mixed baby greens, carrots, beets, cucumber & avocado, almonds....it was power packed! Thanks to my friends for introducing me to M Cafe. I can't wait to go back again (tomorrow?)!
Taste: Probably the best tasting vegan dressing i've had since becoming 100% vegan over a year ago! Amazing.
Parking: 2 hour Parking 2 blocks down
Health Factor: Off Charts Nutritious!!! Skip your One-A-Day, you can eat your A-Zinc with these foods!
