Spring Vegetarian Buffet

Definitely save a visit to Spring Vegetarian Buffet for when you've got a healthy appetite. The buffet is completely vegetarian with a goodly amount of soy and tofu products, creamy pasta, salad makings, and Asian dishes and curries. If you have room after all of that, there is also a large dessert section filled with cakes, pies, and ice cream. A note: they don't offer alcoholic beverages, but you can bring your own bottle.

Sarkis is not a strictly vegetarian restaurant, but the menu is packed full of wonderful middle-eastern food that will leave you completely satisfied. The large dining area gets filled up quickly after they open at 8pm, and for good reason. Their hummus, tabbouleh, and babaganoush are served up with plenty of pita bread for a start, then try there "enselanda completa" which has olives, beans, and cheese drenched in olive oil. Excellent!

Open for lunch and dinner, this vegetarian restaurant is in the steakhouse laden area of Centro. Their menu includes fresh salads, whole-wheat pizzas, and an option to combine a grain, vegetable, and protein for a yummy, customized vegetarian meal. The vegetarian burrito is an excellent option, full of julienne vegetables and served with a spicy sauce. Also try their fresh juice options.
