There's very little of the namesake ingredient in this vegan café's roasted Japanese pumpkin sandwich ($9), served on whole spelt rye and accompanied by veggie sticks thatched with sprouts. But add sea salt, ground black pepper, extra virgin olive oil, caramelized onions, ground walnuts, (vegan) goat cheese, and "seasonal greens," and you've got a mighty tasty package. If burgers of equal artistry were on the menu, Peacefood Café would be mobbed; as is, the sunny dining area is easygoing, verging on blissful. Peace out.
