It is very rare I come across a vegetarian cafe in New York City that I don’t know about. This week I am featuring a quaint vegetarian cafe on the Upper East Side. Enter The Green Bean; with a Californian vibe that makes you feel like you are in sunny Berkeley rather than New York it is a perfect pit stop for any time of day.
The menu is vast with endless flavor combinations, sandwiches, pizzas, hot bar, soups, salad bar and more.
I drooled as I read the menu, but in the end I am a sucker for a gluten free bagel sandwich and a smoothie, especially when the bagel are Sweet Note (check out my bagel page dedicated just to them!)
The above bagel wasn’t even on the menu, but I asked for a toasted bagel with tofu cream cheese, red onion, tomato and avocado and it was amazing! Messy to eat, but I wouldn’t want a bagel any other way.
Maybe they will even name this combo after me! 😉
I used to pass over York Avenue without a thought, now I will plan many a trips via The Green Bean.
I can’t wait to eat my way through their menu!
In NYC, head over and let me know what you order?
Not in NY, but have a favorite veggie cafe near you? I would love to hear about it.
TGIF and Happy Eating!
