Vegan Bay Area

Two vegetarian restaurants bring even more plant-based options to the San Francisco Bay Area vegan scene.

This summer, vegans dwelling in the San Francisco Bay Area will ring in summer with the opening of two vegetarian restaurants, Saturn Café in Berkeley and Plum in Oakland. Veggie diner Saturn Café is based in Santa Cruz, Calif., and is slated to open its Bay Area location in late June, boasting a variety of fast-food vegan fare including nacho fries and guacamole burgers. Last week, vegetable-based eatery Plum announced that James Beard award nominee and former Ubuntu chef Jeremy Fox would be its sous chef. Plum, owned by San Francisco restaurateur Daniel Patterson, is set to open in July.
