One of my favourite places to eat in Berkeley is Saturn Cafe. It’s opposite the western edge of the university. Saturn Cafe is a vegetarian diner, with many vegan options and others that are vegan on request. This beauty (above) is the Diablo Burger, served with their award-winning fries.

I love the decor too: every tabletop is different. It’s got a groovy, 1950s science-fiction kind of vibe. But what kept me coming back was the food.


My last meal in Berkeley was lunch: vegan bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich on sourdough, of course with the fries. Really tasty. A great send-off, before my suitcase and I got on the BART for the airport and home.
