Greenleaf is a vegetarian-friendly cafe in downtown Ashland, OR. The cafe is cute with booths and wonderful riverside tables outside in the back. The wait-staff was knowledgeable about the vegan options and items which could be made vegan.
First up was Satay, which consisted of veggies with a slightly sweet and spicy peanut sauce. I was given the option of adding tofu but opted against it. This meal was more than enough to fill me up. All the vegetables, which once seemed frozen, with a side of brown rice was nice for a healthy lunch. The meal wasn’t anything spectacular, just pleasant.
The Tofu burger was a step above a slab of tofu on a burger bun. The Italian bread crumb coating was very flavorful, but the tofu itself was plain and there wasn’t enough spice to carry though to the rest of the burger since the slice of tofu was so thick. This is one of those meals where you really appreciate the effort, but they just missed it in the flavor department.
If it wasn’t for Grilla Bites next door, I just might visit Greenleaf next time I am in Ashland, if not for the food, then for the environment.
