Chris and I are happy to have joined a group Twitter friend, who have vowed to become 'localtarians," or in other words a group of people who are dedicated to trying out local restaurants.. We all met up for dinner Thursday at a vegan restaurant that opened last year, Sweet Pea Cafe. The best part is that neither C or I did any research before hand, so we didn't realize it was vegan, until we were looking at the menu.
Amy notes, "It's a little place that sources many of its ingredients locally and specializes in sandwiches and brunch items. After you order at the counter, your food is delivered to your table. Extra points if you bring your own water glass or coffee mug (or take out container, if your order is to go)...There are a few tables inside and a large patio with covered seating outside."

Chris R had the quesadillas (Cheddar chz in a whole wheat, white, or gluten-free tortilla, w/ salsa & sour crm) with poutine on the side:
One of the highlights of the evening (besides the great company) was the amazing carrot cake. Jenny Sue tweeted me a photo of the cake from their page earlier in the day and truly I didn't have lunch, so I could indulge in carrot cake
