Austin, TX 78704

Tucked away in a little residential spot on 1st (save for its brightly colored windows, it's easily passed), Bouldin Creek Cafe takes a seemingly impossible takes and makes it a reality -- they made diner food entirely vegetarian. Even dishes like BLT sandwiches, fajitas, and tacos are cruelty- and meat-free when they come from this tiny, bustling kitchen. On most days you can phone your orders in and pick them up, but half the delight of eating here is mellowing out amidst the plant life and pastel-yellow painted brick walls.
