European Flair (and Vegan Food!) at Cafe Angelique
Whenever I go to Cafe Angelique in Tenafly, NJ, I feel like I'm transported back to Zurich, Paris or some other desirable European city. So it was fitting my recent visit there was after catching "Shall We Kiss?" a French film at the theater across the street.
Located in a restored railroad station, this charming cafe also has outdoor seating. On a leisurely, sunny weekend afternoon, I enjoyed the Vegan Angelique: avocado, greens, tomato and olive tapenade on toasted seven grain bread, served with a mesclun salad, $9.95, and a lemonade with fresh mint, $2.75. I didn't have room for their chocolate whiskey cake, $7.50, which the waitress said was vegan. Sounds intriguing, although a bit pricey. Soy is also available if you want to indulge in a cappuccino, although they charge 40 cents extra. Definite discrimination, but at least they have it as an option.

This blog is for people of all dietary backgrounds. The Vegan Good Life is not The Vegan Perfect Life. I am not a pure vegan all the time (I do eat vegetarian always), and strive to do the best I can at pursuing a vegan lifestyle. Please feel free to come along on this flawed but beautiful journey. Along the way, we'll advocate for a better world for animals, reduce our impact on the Earth, travel, go thrifting, empower ourselves financially, learn, dream, inspire, listen to music, and celebrate one of life's greatest passions - food.
