Cooks at the Sugar Plum Vegan Cafe peruse local farm selections to pack their menu with plant-based treats made from organic ingredients. Each of their vegan cakes crams sweet flavors into very-vanilla confections, double-chocolate loaves, or gluten-free carrot cakes for non-cannibalistic scarecrows. Diners trying to avoid meat during lunch or dinner sup on salads such as the california chop of seasonal veggies, avocado, tempeh bacon, and pumpkin seeds swimming in balsamic vinaigrette. The incredible midtown club transforms from a milquetoast stack of bread slices to a hulking meal when topped with tempeh bacon and avocado or made angry. Fingers work out while clamping down halves of ciabatta bread sandwiching the garnet yam and avocado panini painted with poppy seed aioli. Special selections spring forth daily from the chefs' imaginations and several soy- and gluten-free options are available to comply with allergies or raw-food diets.
The Sugar Plum Vegan Cafe
In a white converted home that looks like it belongs on the beach, the Sugar Plum posse churns out vegan baked goods and café fare made from local, fair-trade, and organic products whenever possible. A rotating cupcake menu includes standout flavors such as lemon lavender and mocha hazelnut, and head baker Melissa’s gluten-free and vegan carrot cake, as reported by the East Sacramento News, won a silver medal in a culinary contest where it was the only vegan entry. Sugar Plum renames its Sundays Donut Day in honor of its airy glazed donuts, served from 10 a.m. until stock runs out or the donuts stage a rebellion. Less sweet lunchtime eats often star the kitchen's house-made tempeh bacon, whether on an avocado club sandwich or atop a risotto-and-nut burger with a melty slice of Daiya “cheese.” The staff helpfully accommodates allergies and raw-food diets.
