Respond to Review of Golden Mean Cafe
by earthville

Review: Golden Mean Café is one of the brightest stars in the increasingly dense constellation of veg*n spots in the LA area. The owner has gone the extra mile to manifest the magic formula: tasty and healthful cuisine, organic ingredients, a warm and inviting atmosphere, commendable efforts toward sustainability, and a lot of love. The food ranges from good to great. Some of our favorites: - Veggie burger: excellent - one of the best we've tasted - Quinoa: extra-delicious - Various salads and greens: all great - Desserts: Vanilla coconut cake is the best we've ever had, and the "New York Cheesecake" was quite good, too. Other things you might consider: - The house-made hot maca drink is quite nice. - The pistachio-crusted "chicken" has mild but interesting flavor and comes with a side of quinoa (which i liked even more than the "chicken"). - Spinach artichoke dip: the dip itself is great, though the homemade cactus tortilla chips, as much as i like the idea, didn't really do it for me. - The "rustic Fibonacci cornmeal crust pizza": inventive (quite a leap from traditional Italian-style pizza pie) and very tasty, though the serving size was quite small, especially for the price. - Portobello mushroom panini: good but not great (i've had more flavorful ones elsewhere). - Quesadilla: About as good as vegan quesadillas get (due in part to the Daiya "cheese," which melts well), but even the best of the mass-marketed vegan "cheeses" feel kinda plastic to me so i didn't love it. (I'd much prefer a homemade nut-based cheese substitute.) Fresh, organic juices are also much appreciated. Service has always been exceptionally warm and helpful in our experience. There's parking in the back. Enjoy! :-) Updated from previous review on Friday July 29, 2011
