For those of you looking for great vegan options, Kafe Lila is a locally-owned cafe in the Grant building on Main Street in Pawtucket. In addition to sandwiches — try the butternut squash — they have coffee, espresso, cold-brewed iced coffee, baked goods, homemade ice cream, and many vegetarian and vegan options on the menu with an emphasis on local, organic, and sustainable ingredients. I’m a big fan of the vegan carrot cake — even though I’m not vegan. Their banana bread is better than momma’s home cookin’ — as I’m a momma and it’s better than mine. Their turkey sandwich will leave you yearning for Thanksgiving again. And the ham melt — le sigh.
Open Monday 7am to 2pm, Tuesday through Friday 7am to 6pm, Saturday 10am to 4pm, cash only
