5C Cafe & Cultural Center

This place is like an undiscovered gem. It's an underground performance cafe that offers the best vegetarian food I have ever tasted!! The staff is super friendly and the value can't be beat. Everything is homemade and you can taste the quality with each bite. I had a wilted kale salad with creamy dressing and a veggie burger with spicy ketchup. The smoothie I got was made with banana and spices---it was insane...just thinking about it, I want to go back and have another. They also serve wine and delicious sangria. The decor is really homey, not like what you would expect from an actual restaurant. But by the time you taste the food, you could care less. The vibe is relaxed and welcoming. The night I went, there was a woman singing jazz--it was a beautiful show...intimate, not too loud that you couldn't have a conversation.
