An all-vegan/vegetarian menu sets this eatery apart from typical Japanese options.

Why go? An absence of pretension and meat defines this vegan/ vegetarian Japanese spot, where the food is expertly prepared and surprisingly filling at reasonable prices.

What to order? Cha-Ya serves up light Japanese vegetarian fare. The menu is held up by brothy hot pots filled with veggies, vegan rolls and soba noodles topped with lotus flowers.

Pipsqueak tip Note that there aren’t any boosters or highchairs (though stroller friendly) but the staff is kid friendly as is most of the menu.
