Cosmic Cafe specializes in first wave vegetarian cuisine, which surely comes as no surprise to passers-by who've taken note of the Tibetan prayer flags lining the front porch or peace-seekers who show up to use the mediation center on the second floor. The food here is plain and artless. There aren't any newfangled vegetables or exotic seasonings on the menu. Instead, Cosmic serves the same bohemian comfort dishes that most co-op members and hostel dwellers have mastered. Tofu, broccoli, bell peppers, ginger, curry, basmati rice and garbanzo beans come together in all the expected ways; a homely "cosmic stir" featuring most of the above is an edible relic of whole earth optimism.
