Let's go out to eat and then go for a stroll!
Potala Organic Vegan Cafe on San Pablo Avenue in Albany serves delicious food. This restaurant has ample seating for a potentially large group. It serves complimentary tea, has desserts, is all vegan, and it is unique in that it has a fixed menu. Examples are on their website. http://potala.us/ Examples include all of the following on your plate for one price (two meal sizes to choose from depending on your appetite): Navy bean veggie soup, Short brown rice, Garbanzo bean with tahini basil sauce, Sauteed cabbage, carrots, butternut squash and potato, Steamed collard green with onion miso beet sauce. Mixed green salad with brown rice vinegar parsley dressing. They have a small parking lot and there is street parking on San Pablo Avenue. Afterwards, we can stroll down entertaining Solano Avenue in Albany of which we can walk to from the restaurant. There is frozen yogurt for dessert on Solano Avenue as a possibility after lunch. The restaurant is underwhelming, however the area is busy; Solano Avenue is interesting with lots of shops/items to look at!
We will be in the restaurant at 12:00, eat first and then peruse down Solano Avenue so if you'll be late or want to join us after lunch please let me know and we can exchange cell phone info so we'll know where to find you. Enjoy the start of summer!
