New Hampshire – We Don’t Take Veganism For Granite
Café Indigo – 100% Vegan
128H Hall Street
Behold! The Awesome Power of Women. Vegan Women! Congrats on your recognition as the US Small Business Administration Woman Owned Business of 2011 for New Hampshire.
Café Indigo is known beyond the borders of NH for its bakery which produces the VegNews Award Winning Carrot Cake and the WTFVeganFood approved Whoopie Pies amongst other pastry delights. But wait! There’s more! Out front, Café Indigo boasts a more than competent cafe featuring sandwiches and snacks. When we arrived Café Indigo was featuring a proprietary holiday-style loaf that could compete with Tofurkey or Field Roast’s holiday centerpieces. Kristin had the special “Gobbler” sandwich and I went with the Tofishy sandwich, which is for people like me who grew up in a seafood dense coastal state where the conversion to veganism is usually stifled by seafood attachments, not cheese addictions like most people (see Casomorphins; the agent in dairy believed to be very addictive).
Though we didn’t try the Cheesecake there are rumors of its glory. And they even have recipes available in a cookbook. Check em out!
Spoon Revolution Vegan Bistro – 100% Vegan
55 South Main Street
Spoon Revolution Vegan Bistro offers a set menu that varies by day. We were greeted with a smile and each course was wonderfully described and the food delivered the rest.
They are usually only open during lunch hours but Saturdays are a full day of service. Also, they have weekly Meat Eaters Anonymous meetings for people transitioning to a plant-based diet. Good job Spoon Rev! Thanks for the excellent food!
Cream of Yucca and Yam
Fall Vegetable Medley
Potato, Apple, Coconut Salad with Avocado Dressing
Bengali Vegetable Curry with Brown Basmati Rice
Susty’s – 100% Vegan
159 First NH Turnpike
This was our last stop in New Hampshire before heading to Vermont for the night. Here we met WTFVeganFood supporter and fellow hockey fan, Jeff Schwotzer (thanks for the tips on the New Hampshire AM radio. I was able to listen to the Bruins game on our way to VT!).
It is always a good time meeting FB friends over veg meals. This was no exception. Might I add, the enthusiasm of our hosts at Susty’s was a plus as well. We want you all to come with us. Let’s get a caravan going!
Oh, Hello! Soy Fritters…
Kristin and I each had the Roasted Seitan Plate…
…and Jeff had the Taco Special.
The Juicery – 99.9% Vegan
51 Hanover Street
Portsmouth, NH 03801
Kristin: After watching the documentary, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead back in September, I went on a six-day juice fast and have been addicted to juice ever since. We were desperately seeking some vegan noms when we arrived in Portsmouth and stumbled upon this quaint juice bar. YAY!
Aside from juice The Juicery also makes fresh smoothies as well as vegan sandwiches and wraps.
