In a neighborhood known for its beefcake, there’s a little vegetarian oasis amidst the chaos. Just a few blocks from the shiny disco balls, two-steppin’ cowboys and drag-queen power ballads of Cedar Springs is one of our favorite haunts. And it’s better than ever.
Cosmic Café has long been one of the top vegetarian spots in town (even if the full list of such restaurants can be counted on one hand), but the fresh food, friendly service and downright peaceful vibe make it an ideal spot for a relaxing meal during this hectic time of year.
Our favorites, potato-and-pea Samosas and Spinach Enchiladas never cease to satisfy in a who-needs-beef sorta way.
But our new discovery on a recent visit is the delectable Cosmic Stir. This cornucopia of vegetables includes fresh asparagus, broccoli, bell peppers, onions, carrots, squash, and snow peas with ginger and tofu served over basmati rice alongside a great green salad.
Just this dish alone is enough to make you regular. Oops, we mean “a regular.”
Don’t forget to check out the vegan desserts, too. As Marie Antoinette might’ve said had she known better, “Let them eat eggless cake!”
