Most veggie places in Berkeley close around 10pm, but a lot of UC night-classes don't get out until 9:30pm. Well, Saturn is open plenty late. They have perfect diner food and surprisingly good coffee. For me it's a no-brainer: get the diablo burger with vegan jack cheese and a PBR. Or a vegan shake with a side of the famous fries.
Minus 1 star for not being vegan despite having pamphlets near the exit explaining the tremendous animal abuse inflicted by companies that sell dairy/eggs.Pros: open late, beer, friendly staff
Cons: not all vegan, shadow box tables can be unappetizing, food is delicious but can be pretty heavy
