Annapurna’s World Vegetarian Cafe Restaurant Review

: Annapurna’s is a chai house, and the staff arguably makes the best chai in town --- a spicy black tea made with milk or soymilk. In that vein, be sure to order a chai, or at least one of the many herbal and Ayurvedic teas, while you wait for your meal at this vegan and vegetarian eatery. The breakfast menu features freshly baked, often sugar-free and gluten-free muffins and pastries, and those with an appetite should consider tucking into the gooey banana cardamom pancakes with pecan compote. For lunch or dinner, chapati (flatbread) is a lovely accompaniment to the soup of the day, such as ginger-carrot or pumpkin. Kitchari, an offering focusing on using food to re-establish balance in the body in the Ayurvedic tradition, features rice, mung beans and vegetables.
