Candle Cafe West serves vegan food that won’t make you crave a burger afterward. It also has a dining room so nice that even meat-eaters will be excited about having a meal in it. Unsurprisingly, there are plenty of vegetable options, but they also have quesadillas, pastas, and a good plate of nachos. If you’re trying to accommodate multiple diet requests at the same time, Candle Cafe has your back.
