Galactic is cool as all hell! The staff is great, the decor is retro, the philosophy is environmentally sensitive and the food is absolutely delectable. They make vegetarian and vegan options of almost all their pizzas, using the finest soy cheese as well as making their own vegan hemp pesto. Their perfect pizza crust creates a great base for what goes on top. The piece de résistance is the vegan cheesecake which they source from a company called Muddy Paws, a local bakery (http://www.muddypawscheesecake.com). Inside, the restaurant is cozy and retro, with a comfortable sofa area at the back. In summer they provide outside seating under grass canopies.

This Vietnamese deli is small, family run and serves a wonderful mix of sandwiches (including mock duck and curried mock duck), tofu and mock meat broken rice plates, noodles salads and soups. Their vegan options are so delicious that it has become a popular haunt for hungry herbivores eager to find a wholesome and cheap option. They also have a deli counter where you can pick up sandwiches if you are on the run. It is easy to have a filling lunch for less than $6. Highly recommended.

Good fresh food
With vintage diner seating in the entrance Tao has a retro feel to it. The restaurant has a store at the back, selling all things natural from soaps to vitamins and everything in between. The cafe is quite pricey with entrées starting at $10. It serves an interesting choice of health juices and smoothies, or you can just make up your own. Their veggie burger is delicious, made with whole wheat bread and garnished with alfalfa sprouts and vegan mayonnaise. The vegan pie they serve daily is also a treat. The staff is happy to modify dairy dishes to make them vegan.
