Right to the food. Peacefood Cafe (460 Amsterdam Avenue at 82nd Street) serves up creative vegan fare that tastes great and is good for you. Found here: homemade everything, from soups and salads to panini sandwiches and pizzas, as well as classic vegan staples, like fried seitan and baked tempeh. Peacefood also offers fun finger food like chickpea fries and vegetable tempura. Wide variety of smoothies and baked goods, too! Tonight I tried one of their toasted sandwiches ($9) with spelt rye bread, slathered with roasted pumpkin, caramelized onions, ground walnuts, vegan goat cheese, sweetened jicama, and greens. Enjoyed — tasty, hearty and healthy. My only complaint– a bit pricy.
Starter: chickpea fries ($7)
Main: tempeh avocado sandwich ($9) or the roasted pumpkin sandwich ($9)
Dessert: mini-chocolate fudge brownies ($1.25)
