Jax Vegan Cafe


Continuing the trend of posting a couple weeks after the actual event, I went to Jax Vegan Cafe two weeks ago. :) Although this lovely little vegan haven is a mere 2 miles from my office, with traffic, it took me about 15 minutes each way, not including the time it took me to park and walk to and from my car. It was worth it, though! I had the Veggie Turkey Sandwich, a comforting staple that included vegan mozzarella, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, and garlic vegenaise on whole wheat. It was accompanied by a small mixed greens salad with vegan ranch dressing.

I generally bring my lunch to work for both health and financial reasons, but on this particular day, I eschewed what was in my pink lunch bag for what I was really craving: a simple vegan sandwich. I'm so glad I did!

I could see how leaving the office for a lunch break could pose a problem if it takes that long to get to Jax. But your sandwich looks worth it! Sometimes the surprises of trying restaurant food is so much more alluring than what we've packed in our lunch boxes... :)

Yum-- how exciting to get to go to a restaurant where they have vegan sandwiches! It sounds like it was worth the drive. One of my favorite vegan restaurants is an hour's drive away, but the food makes the drive not only bearable, but fun (because I'm excited about going)!

I have never tried any of the vegan deli faux meats. But I do love sandwiches, so maybe I should!

Thanks for commenting on my blog! It's nice to know that I'm not alone in my dislike of avocado.

That sandwich looks delicious, but I don't think I could justify 30 minutes in a car to get it. But we all have our days when packing a lunch just isn't an option. I mostly prefer to bag my own lunch. I love cooking too much to let anyone else do it for me, hehe. =)
