Christmas Travels

Merry Christmas (and any other celebrated holiday) to all my readers! Peter and I just got back from a fantastic trip to Philadelphia, New York City, Brooklyn, and Salem.

Between that and going to holiday festivities, it will be a few days before I start posting about the actual trip, but for now be satisfied with photos of pre-trip lunch in Atlanta at Kafenio.

This quirky little Greek cafe is located a convenient five minutes from the airport and sports a large amount of vegan and vegetarian food.

We were mostly just excited about the all-day breakfast. Peter ate the Atalanta (not a typo but the name of a Greek mythological huntress) omelette which was stuffed full of veggies and served with a side of cheese grits and toast. I partook in the vegan bowl which was piled high with hashbrowns, tofu scramble, and fresh vegetables.

A great meal to start a trip full to the brim with good food!

Atlanta – Pizza and Sword Fights

Last week we celebrated Peter’s 22nd birthday a few days early with a day trip to Atlanta. We were originally headed to Dulce Vegan Cafe, but forgot to account for the time difference between Alabama and Georgia, and sadly arrived right as they were closing. 😦

But all was not lost! When we asked where else was good to eat, they pointed us two doors down to the pizza joint Urban Pie.

After lunch, we wandered around some of the shops in the funkier part of Atlanta.

This included the highly intriguing Junkman’s Daughter store. My favorite of their window displays was the mutant corn man whose name tag read “Hello, my name is GMO”.

For that evening’s entertainment, we attended the Medieval Times show. I’m happy to say their vegetarian meal (which you choose when ordering your tickets) is entirely vegan! The arena was dark, so I took a picture of the table setting before the lights dimmed.

The meal was three courses. The appetizer was tomato soup and hummus with veggies and pita bread. The main course was a stew with brown rice, beans, and a vegetable-rich tomato sauce. Dessert was a cinnamon apple turnover (Peter’s included a birthday candle).

Peter had a great birthday trip to Atlanta and we happily went back home with crowns on our head and bellies full of veggie food.
