Thanks to Emily C. for sharing this vegan-friendly restaurant with the Yummy Plants community! Emily says, “Fantastic local & vegan options! The atmosphere is very rustic: drinks served in ball jars, mix-matched metal and wooden chairs, wooden tabletops, and glass bottle light fixtures. The drink selection is fantastic, serving an extensive list of teas, unique coffee concoctions, smoothies, and local beers, wine, and mead! And the best part of the drink menu is that any item with dairy milk in the ingredients can be substituted for rice, soy, or almond milk at NO EXTRA CHARGE! Score! The food is fantastic! Lots of vegan and gluten free daily soup options, special salads, and extra yummy baked goods…”
Thanks to Emily C. for sharing! Emily says, “Excellent juices & smoothies! They also offer plenty of yummy vegan breakfast and lunch options! Definitely an eclectic space that is suitable for candlelit dining or conducive to studying, or just meeting up with friends and grabbing a light lunch or great juice! The storefront is quite small, so it’s easy to miss…but you DON’T want to miss this little treasure of a place!”

The Harvard plate also promotes the consumption of whole grains, plant-based fats, and vegetables. We’re glad to see support from Harvard for plant-based sources of calcium!
