Candle Cafe is one of the only vegan options in the area, but it’s also pretty good. There are obviously lots of vegetables on the menu, but also quesadillas, pastas, and a good plate of nachos. If you’re trying to accommodate multiple diet requests at the same time, Candle Cafe can probably make it work.
