I was in Newport this morning for a follow up allergist appointment. I was hungry and decided to try something new. I was thinking Plum Cafe but didn't see anything on the menu that appealed to me, so decided on Avanti Cafe. This place has been voted #1 vegetarian friendly so I had to try it.
The guy behind the counter was very helpful when I asked what he recommended. I tried the bakin' BBQ which has avocado, tempeh, lettus, tomoato on toasted grain bread. Instead of tater frieds (gotta watch my carbs!), I asked for side salad. The mixed green salad was delish w/ pears and citrus dressing. I definitely will check this place out again and bring someone next time I'm in Costa Mesa.
