The Spot Restaurant Review

: The Spot is famous among natural food restaurants, a haven since the 1960s for vegetarians. Its mission statement is focused and unwavering, stressing organic whole grains and legumes, seasonal organic produce when available, homemade bread, desserts sweetened with agave syrup and oil- and dairy-free soups. Whole wheat burritos and sandwiches are filled with things like baked tofu, avocado and brown rice. There’s even a meat-less meatloaf, made with mushrooms, walnuts and brown rice, bathed in mushroom gravy. Salads are accented with surprisingly original dressings, highlighted by the herb dressing with soy oil and apple cider vinegar. There are even pastas under the “Little Bit of Italy” banner; the pasta’s whole wheat, but the marinara sauce is the real deal. Everything is wholesome, and the prices are reasonable.
