"Organic" and "vegan" may not be phrases that fire up the appetite like "deep fried" or "golden brown." But they might once you've tried Cafe Green. Who wants spinach flax and kelp noodles when humanity has invented chili cheese fries? At Cafe Green, you get both. It may be vegan chili and cheese, but you're not likely to feel deprived. Actually, along with the range of traditional raw and vegan fare, the uninitiated can indulge in all sorts of favorites, from a "steak and cheese" sub to "mac n cheese" to gelato. All this, and brunch on Sundays! Located at 1513 17th St. NW in Washington, D.C. Call 202-234-0505.
