I wasn't sure what to expect from a Vegetarian Festival. I browsed the vendors and watched the vast diversity of the crowd of people. There was great live music by local singers. Judging by some of conversations I overheard, Cville has a very large population of vegan, vegetarian and semi vegetarian residents. The vendors were great and the food was really good. And everywhere you turned there were dogs of all varieties with their owners. The animals available for adoption were plentiful, and wonderful. I bought some goodies for puppy and myself too. It was fun.
Recently Cafe Lajoi opened near were I work. I stopped by for lunch on Friday. I had the Veggie Delight sandwich. It was probably the freshest sandwich I've ever eaten, with bread that tasted like it had just come out of the oven and very fresh veggies. I wolfed down every crumb and then crushed the oatmeal raisin cookie that had just been baked that morning...The owners waited on me; they are most delightful people. I will most definitely be becoming a regular at Cafe Lajoi.
