Hours: 9am - 9pm (Fri/ Sat 10pm)
M Cafe is a nice all organic Macrobiotic deli style cafe that is almost completely vegan if you take away the fish:( Most of the menu consists of very creative vegan items. They have three locations around LA; Melrose (original), Culver City (serves alcohol), and Beverly Hills (online orders available) opened recently. The food is Asian with French influences...meaning mostly everything is coated in OIL:'( It's such a shame because the food quality is amazing there.
The Teriyaki-Tofu Bowl (steamed veggies, Tofu, & Teriyaki) is about the only thing (besides one sushi) they will make Oil/ Fat Free which is fine because it's a favorite of mine. I KNOW it sounds boring but it's actually pretty incredible! I don't know HOW they make something so simple taste so good?? ....mine never tastes like this:-D The positive thing about hitting up the Culver City location is you can get a big ol' organic BEER!! woohoo:) We had the St. Peter's English Ale and it was perfectly smooth and flavorful. Top off your naturally low fat Vegan rice bowl with a delicious Green Tea soy ice cream...yum tum:P Still hungry?? Head over to sister restaurant Chaya in Venice or WEHO for some amazing veggie sushi.
The Bill: Pretty Damn Pricey for a Bowl of RICE & Beer..Yikes. Basically, you paying top dollar to eat LA's hippest Macro Cafe:) As you can see we could have definitely ordered one for each of us but spending $60 bucks for that would just be stupid.
