Eklecticafe, Moab, UT

Having driven all night from Salt Lake City to Moab, Utah (six-hour drive!), then sleeping in, by the time we awoke, we had a hankering for some good vegan food! But, "where to go?" I asked the locals. They all said, "Eklecticafe!" And, so, we went.

I really love this little town. Moab, Utah is this magical place with beautiful red-rock cliffs and some of the most unique rock formations in the world. It's a tourist destination for a number of outdoor sports including hiking, rock climbing, and BASE jumping, which is why we were there. The people who live here are outdoorsy people -- low-key and down-to-earth. This cafe reflects Moab very well.

True to its name, Eklecticafe is eclectic. Outside and inside, it is very colorful with plants galore! Inside, they sell artwork such as jewelry and pottery from all around the country including some local artists. The menu had a number of items that were vegan or could be veganized like scrambled tofu, tofu wrap, veggie wrap and PB&J. We placed our orders and went outside.

They have a great patio where you can enjoy the nice Moab weather. In fact, this little birdie came to visit.

I ordered the Indonesian Satay and it was delicious!  Over Indonesian-style rice with peas and raisins was tofu marinated in Braggs and topped with a peanut sauce. It was served with pickled cucumber. This really hit the spot.

I felt like I could have sat there all day, but we had hiking to do.  We didn't stay for long, but really loved this place. It is low-key, the service is fine, and the prices are fine as well. Oh, and the food was great! Definitely a must-visit in Moab. Just be aware that they are only open for breakfast and lunch. And be sure to check out the oversized steaming cup of tea on the way out!
