This pizza is my favorite; all other pizzas are held to this standard and all pale in comparison. Being a vegan and finding great pizza has been one of my top problem areas. Cheese is usually the last thing to go when one goes vegan and the same was true for me. And I happen to know for a fact that their cheesy bread sticks are amazing.
Sazza Menu Board
The Sazza Pizza crew use mostly organic ingredients sourced from mostly local growers and their take out containers are all biodegradable/compostable. The glasses in their restaurant are made from old wine bottles and they recycle almost everything from their kitchen. I LOVE that. Sazza, if you’re reading this, I love you. <3 Read the rest of this entry

I’ve known of this restaurant for ages and have never eaten here until today. I’d been here a long time ago to attend an event in the upstairs community center room, but hadn’t stopped to eat…silly me, I’ve been missing out all this time!
The Mercury Cafe opened at this location on Halloween Day, way back in 1990. This location is far more than just a restaurant: it’s a community center, a gathering place, a music and poetry venue, and much more. I just may be going back to take some belly dancing classes too! Check out their website for a monthly calendar, most things are free, but there is a small fee for a few events.
Today we drove up to The Mercury, there is a pay parking lot right next to the building, on the weekend it’s just $2 for the whole day so it’s not much to complain about. There is free parking on the streets too if you can find it.
Mercury Cafe Dining Area
We were seated immediately, the restaurant wasn’t busy at all for being a Saturday around 1pm. I love that. We were seated in a booth by the empty bar. The restaurant is decorated in a really unique and warm way. There are a lot of red and white Christmas-style lights draped from the ceiling and lots of mirrors on the walls reflecting things around. Several of the walls are painted red with large red roses. And for our auditory pleasure there was a flamenco guitar player playing in the dining area. For some reason there are a lot of pumpkins around the dining area, that’s not odd if it’s October, but this is the middle of February! In general, the place it totally eccentric, warm, and friendly.

I have drafted the following letter to send to Ming’s Dynasty in response to their “Shark’s Fin Soup” on the menu. This is an incredibly cruel menu item to be serving! My hope is that they will respond to my letter and agree to take the shark fin soup off of their menu. Please feel free to use my letter to send to Ming’s Dynasty or any other restaurant serving shark fins. I will add an update if/when I receive a response and please let me know if you receive a response! Each letter counts, just as each vote counts, make sure YOUR voice is heard.

Sometime last summer I received a flier for a pizza place not too far from my house, this was one of dozens of pizza fliers I received last summer, but for some reason I actually looked at this one before I threw it in the recycling bin. The flier said that the entire menu can be made Vegan! What?! Really? I was skeptical but I kept the menu in the kitchen…for many months, until we finally decided to cheat on our regular pizza place (Sazza Pizza – they’re awesome!) and try this new place that advertises vegan pizzas.
I called just to verify that what I read was accurate and to see if they were still in business. I read correctly and they are still in business. I was told that ANYTHING on the menu can be “veganized.” They use Morning Star chicken, Lightlife Pepperoni, Lightlife bacon, Yves Canadian bacon, Tofurky Italian Sausage, and Boca burgers as their meat replacements. Not bad! For cheese substitutes they have Daiya and Follow Your Heart. How exciting to be able to order a pizza, any pizza, and have it arrive all veganed out! Read the rest of this entry
