I ate here a couple times last year  and I really like this place. I could eat here once a month excepting I have so many other restaurants on my list to try. But it is definitely overdue for a return visit. We'll try to grab the big community table inside, but if it's not available, we can put a few tables together on the patio.

Vegetables are the antizombie, rising out of the ground to demand we devour their artichoke hearts and cauliflower brains.

M Café de Chaya culls fresh, nutrient-dense veggies and fish to assemble a macrobiotic menu that eschews the meddling of refined sugars, eggs, diary, red meat, and poultry. Entree salads such as the M Chopped lead the leafy charge with mixed greens, chickpeas, herb-baked tofu, umeboshi-pickled radishes, and tempeh “bacon” ($11.45). Amid a battalion of sandwiches and wraps, the Big Macro burger smuggles a whole-grain-rice-and-veggie patty into bellies inside a house-baked whole-wheat bun ($9.95). Sushi rolls ($2.25–$2.75 à la carte) round out the menu with tofu, tuna, shrimp, or salmon clad in brown rice harvested from California’s Koda Farms by quail paid a humane living wage.

Surrounded by simple tables both inside the European-style café and on the patio, baristas squeeze an ever-expanding array of fruit and veggie juice blends and pour coffee drinks ($2.75–$4.75) with LAMILL beans. A rotating selection of Babycakes NYC treats ($3.50–$4.50) fêtes vegans, the gluten-averse, and those who have simply had their houses egged on one too many Halloweens with classic cupcakes and other desserts.

Cash or credit cards okay. Each person pays for their own food that they order at the register. This is sorta cafeteria style where you order and pay at the counter and a server will bring the food to us. I kinda like this system... Don't have to pay a big tip to a server...
