A friend asked for a good veg-friendly/vegetarian/vegan restaurant suggestion, and she lives in Santa Monica. I read some previous posts about Elf Cafe in Echo Park, mostly positive. So my question is two-fold: Is it still good, and is it worth the drive? Is it a must for any vegetarian, even from the westside?
For me, I guess I should ask: Is it good enough for a meat eater who doesn't mind vegetarian or even vegan food. ONLY if it's good, though. I hate seitan bricks, and if tofu is just plain and jiggly, I find it disgusting.
