Veg Out: Chapterhouse Cafe

I'll be away in Paris for the next week, but I couldn't wait and had to grab a Euro Grilled Cheese to complement my schoolgirl excitement.

Chapterhouse is the cleanest coffeeshop that I know of. Yet it's completely laid-back and not at all stuffy like nicer cafes can be. I often end up at dingy places with puddles of newspapers, moldy sofas, and chipped mugs because I prefer the atmosphere, but it's cool to have a more sophisticated option. Chapterhouse is that spot for me. It has that Euro vibe, but the music is less grating and the art is actually decent. There's plenty of space, lots of light, and what I'm getting at...veg eats.

I've always been a fan of the Euro Grilled Cheese, but here's a reminder of why:

The garlic spread is what makes this sandwich, along with the fact that there is no cheddar to be found, for once. It comes with a tangy cucumber salad.

They also have a new vegan wrap on the menu with tofu, hummus, and other wrap-ish necessities, and Alternative Baking Co. vegan cookies (the Snickerdoodle is my favorite and as such, is pretty hard to track down).
