Cafe Viva Herbal Pizzeria
East Village, New York.
179 2nd Ave.
Out of all the "fine vegan" dining offered in New York, this may be my hubby's favorite. Pizza could actually be considered a vegetable here! Lots of gluten free, dairy free, kosher options. Vegan cookies, brownies, and ice creams. Green Juices. This place is amazing. Hemp Crusts. Spelt. Spinach. Broccoli. Daiya Cheese. Thin Crust. Thick Crust. By the slice or buy the whole pie. In a wonderful location, across the street from Liquiteria, a juice bar that offers both "regular" juice and "wonder juice" from the "Norwalk Juicer" (the juicer of yours truly).
Lots of Vegan options....

Yikes! GLUTEN FREE!!! VEGAN!!!! This is the first place we ever had Daiya. They had it before it hit retail.

Wheat & Sugar Free. Vegan. And full of HEMP!
Ganja anyone?? This is Pizza on Willy Wonka!! VERY full of garlic!
Vegan. Spelt. "Seitan Dream". With Artichokes & SunDried Tomatoes.
Green Tea Miso-Tofu? Shitake? Maritake? Green Tea herbed spelt crust.
Everything Vegan. Some gluten free.
Gluten Free. Vegan. Sugar Free Cookies.
Vegan Whoopie Pies.
It's a small place but a very comfy hang. Super casual.
Lots of students. But people of all ages come here for yummy vegan eats.
Green Juices, Kombucha, Coconut water.
Even a Vegan Ice Cream Freezer. Chicago Soy Dairy desserts.
Here the Pizza would probably qualify as a vegetable.
There is so much broccoli on the pizza. Probably more on one slice than most people get in a whole day.
Hubby usually gets this Sicilian for lunch then gets something with more zing for late night eats! The sauce is so full of flavor.
All the good stuff. Hot peppers, nutritional yeast.
Yes, they have "real" juice.
Veggie & "Omega" zines....
Love that the Veggie places support the animal sanctuaries & food festivals.

These are just a few of the kids we see. Pj feeds the dogs every single day and GPG rescues them as we are able. We always need fosters! Knuckles may get pulled soon. His leg/hip might actually be dislocated so PJ is keeping an eye on him to see if it is just arthritis or if he needs medical attention.
I kind of can't believe Mr. Tux & the Siamese cat aren't already adopted!! There are about 5 cats at this house. We tried to trap one for someone, but we got the "wrong" one (that wouldn't work with her others) and ended up doing a trap & release, and a neuter. We are working with some girls that will be doing more T&R for these kids. Of course we would prefer to find them homes, but while we are looking, we don't want the population to get too crazy. They are not truly "feral" as they let Pj pet them and they run alongside the car!!
This cat is by far the most social cat on the route. He always runs alongside the car, too close for comfort. He will love all over you. We thought he belonged (we use that term loosely) to someone, but Pj checked, and he does not. I think he would do really well adapting to life in a home. Does anyone want to foster this cat??
