This may not be the right place to post, but......



Why are there so few Vegetarian restaurants in Dallas?



I went to Cosmic Cup Saturday night, and it was sooooooooo good!



What else do we have in Dallas? All I know about is Dream Cafe,

Kalachanji's (sp?), and Cosmic Cup. I'd love to try Spiral Diner in Ft. Worth, but it's too far to drive.



Any ideas?

I would imagine Houston would be a little better.



Dallas is a conservative oil money town. Houston is more progressive.

I'm from the Dallas area. Where is Dream Cafe? I've never heard of it.



I love Cosmic Cup. They're the best! If I lived closer (I'm on the north side of Dallas), I'd go there once or twice a week. Kalachandjis is good too. Usually Indian food restaurants are your best bet, though if you're vegan the menu choices might be a little smaller. I like Clay Pit in Addison a lot. I really would like to find some more veg*n friendly restaurants around town though.

The spiral diner in FTW is definitely worth the trip! My wife and I live in Tulsa, OK and we drive down to Fort Worth every other month or so to enjoy a wonderful cruelty free meal. The cosmic cup (or is it cafe?) is really good, too. Just consider yourself lucky that you have veg*n options at all...Tulsa has 0 veg restaurants and only a couple who make minimal efforts to accommodate us. There is one place here in town called gypsies that has started talking about developing a vegan menu...hmmmm.

I can't wait to try Spiral Diner. I love discovering new places!



And yes, it is Cosmic Cafe. They used to be Cup but changed the name for some reason a few years ago. Not only is their food great (and they have to die for vegan cakes!) but I love the atmosphere there.

I LOVE Cosmic's vegan cakes! The last time we were in Dallas we bought four slices and rationed them over a few weeks. I wonder what their secret is...my vegan cakes always turn out really dense.



Isn't there a veg restaurant in that "ice skating" building downtown?
