Let's face it, while traveling isn't easy on anyone, it's especially uncomfortable for vegetarians and vegans. They're forced to pack a snack and lunch at home, then somehow keep it intact through security lines and bag checks. And if you're on a meat-free meal plan and stuck at an airport for a few hours, a wilted salad, apple, or bag of nuts is about all you'll get for airport fare. However, venture just outside the terminal walls and a short cab ride can land you at The Vegan Cafe off Okeechobee. Since opening in July, it's already earned a reputation among the local vegan-loving population, including a few "celebrities" like Hippocrates Health Institute codirectors Anna Marie and Brian Clement and Vanilla Ice. The café offers a chalkboard menu of cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and a serve-yourself soup bar that changes daily. There's also a short menu of raw, vegan eats. And for the fully committed vegan, the entire right wall is dedicated to shelves showcasing colorful jars of owner Moe Senechal's homemade, probiotic-infused, fermented foods. Try thePond Yum! popsicles for an after-meal treat. They're healthy and delicious!
