After years of hard work in the food industry and many successful pop-up food events , The Fiction Kitchen is eager to finally make our dream come true: to open up a 100% vegetarian restaurant in Raleigh, North Carolina. On a block in the historic train depot and warehouse district which has been somewhat forgotten over time, we plan to create a thriving, new culinary destination which will not only impress your palate but give back to the community as well.
As each of us worked to expand our culinary knowledge and began to explore new possibilities in the world of food, the more challenging it became to consistently find inspiring vegetarian food when we went out to eat. Although many places were beginning to offer more vegetarian and even vegan menu options, the choices always seemed both limited and predictable. We craved vegetarian cuisine which was fresh, creative, locally sourced and carefully prepared, and thought maybe there were other people in need of the same thing.
Veg Tip: Arrive early! Limited seating with no reservations. Sunday Brunch starts lining up outdoors at 11am.

Sai Krishna Bhavan is a cheery spot inside The Market at Perimeter Park, a standard-issue strip mall just south of the of N.C. 540-N.C. 54 intersection, so new it looks like a child’s giant toy right out of the box. Inside, mango and dusty plum walls brighten the setting. The décor is spare and smart, with just a few prints and friezes. The decorators skipped the wall-to-wall bric-a-brac that often overwhelms the eye at Indian eateries.
The Tipsy Teapot is here to bring a little more sunshine to everybody’s day. Come downtown and nibble on a muffin, drink a cup of tea, or savor a nice Belgian beer. We are a community oriented establishment and we strive to provide the best healthy vegetarian food and independent live entertainment.

Montreal-born, Executive Chef Drew Trepanier’s earliest food memory is baking apple pies with his grandmother – adding a D to the top of the pie so he knew it was his. After working in retail for several years, Trepanier realized a normal 9-5 working schedule was not for him and at age 23, enrolled in the Johnson & Whales culinary program to become a chef.
In 2009, Trepanier took a job with The Harpers Group at M5 in South Park where he worked the pizza station and wood-fired oven, eventually working his way to lead line cook. When the restaurant transitioned into Zink: American Kitchen, Trepanier was promoted to Sous Chef. In 2011, Drew left Zink to join the team at Fern, Flavors from the Garden, working his way to Sous Chef and was ultimately named Executive Chef in fall 2012.
Trepanier seeks to constantly evolve the vision of what is possible in vegetarian cooking and has been a driving force for why Fern, Flavors from the Garden is viewed both locally and nationally as one of the top restaurants in Charlotte. Trepanier hopes that each guest, vegetarian, vegan or otherwise, enjoy their complete dining experience, regardless of their dietary preferences or restrictions – his ultimate personal goal as a chef is to make sure each guest is happy and not only holds himself to that high standard but his tight-knit kitchen as well.
When not in the kitchen, Trepanier can be found watching live music, playing guitar or reading up on the latest cookbooks.
Sage Café in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, was established by Homa Jahannia and her son, Ramin Jahannia, in 2003. From the beginning, it has been an exclusively vegetarian café, with Homa as the cook. Friends warned Homa and Ramin that vegetarian restaurants are not at all certain to draw enough customers to support them, but Homa was convinced that if the food were really good, the décor inviting, and the service excellent, the restaurant would succeed, and she proved to be right.
The Café rapidly developed a clientele of vegetarians, and many non-vegetarians also became regular customers. Artistic imagination has created an environment of warmth, beauty, and comfort.
Homa grew up in Iran. Her cooking is based largely on Persian dishes, adapted to vegetarianism, but it is also eclectic, drawing on Italian and other cuisines. Creative use of herbs and spices, some of which are initially unfamiliar to customers, are used to flavor fresh vegetable and fruit dishes. Wherever possible, organic fruits and vegetables are bought from local sources.
For Homa, the appreciation of customers for the food at Sage Café is the most important accomplishment. Small businesses in general do not make their owners rich, and this was not Homa’s expectation in founding the café. The important achievement has been the creation of an environment of warmth and conviviality, in which good vegetarian food is served and customers are satisfied.
UDUPI is a coastal town in southern india. It is famous for the historical hindu temples built centuries ago and attracts visiting tourists and luminaries from around the world.
In the surrounding area the land is rich and fertile and is therefore ideally suitable for farming. The vicinity abounds in a plentiful supply of fresh vegetables and fruits, which are not only incorporated into the cuisine, but form the basis for many of the dishes. Here the food is spicier, less subtle and rice is the staple of the diet.
Local cooks assume enormous pride in cultivating various recipes and UDUPI has become internationally recognized for superb indian vegetarian cuisine as a result.
We are downtown Asheville’s whole-foods kitchen & cafe. We serve lunch, dinner, late night, and Sunday brunches as well as our whole menu. We have been open since 2002 and have been serving our extended family, friends, and wanderer throughers, creative vegatarian and vegan soul foods out of our colorful space at a brisk pace all these years.
We have hosted hundreds of benefits, art shows, and musicians, we have fed the homeless, the wealthy, a good handful of celebrities, and everyone in between.
We have nourished everyone who has passed through our doors in the best ways we know how… We are owned by the Wezeltown tribe, managed by a handful of dedicated employees who are currently working on a plan to become a collectively operated business. The hard working staff, that almost seems to live at the Kitchen, are a dedicated bunch that only put up with the cramped space and constant chaos because of a love for food and/or the philosophy of the establishment. .
We are frequented by a constant flow of creative souls of a wide spectrum, foodies, health nuts, vegans, vegetarians, and curious tourists. Please stop in, say hello, and allow us to feed you. It is always an honor.
The Laughing Seed Cafe was started in 1991 by Joan and Joe Eckert. Originally a small lunch counter on the lower level of the local YMCA, we moved to our current location on Asheville’s historic Wall St in June of 1993, where we were one of the first businesses to spearhead the downtown Renaissance of this beautiful city in the Blue Ridge mountains.
bird Quality and creativity have always been the driving forces behind the Laughing Seed’s eclectic international approach to vegetarian dining, and this has led to our popularity with vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. We combine local products, organic ingredients, and a flair for global fusion to give our dishes a unique and satisfying character. We have been the recipient of numerous awards including Best Vegetarian Restaurant in WNC fourteen years in a row (as voted by the Asheville Citizen Times and the weekly Mountain Express), and been recognized by publications as diverse as Southern Living, Vegetarian Times, and the NY Times. And we’re pleased to announce that we just achieved a two-star Green Certified restaurant rating for our many eco-friendly practices!
The Laughing Seed’s ambiance is one of a soothing oasis, where warm shades, a mural of the rainforest, and a babbling fountain melt away anxieties and set the stage for our festive, imaginative cuisine. A beautiful blue-green bar invites customers to sample one of our many fresh fruit smoothies and elixirs, indulge in a martini or mojito, relax with a glass of wine, or sip one of our locally brewed Green Man Ales. In warm weather dining is available on our sheltered patio, perfect for people watching and soaking up the mountain breeze.
If you are a newcomer to the world of vegetarian dining we are sure your curiosity will be amply rewarded by our wide selection of delicious offerings. If you are a seasoned lover of meatless cuisine you’re in for a real treat. After all, as our many satisfied customers will tell you, there’s nothing like “Eating Right!” at the Laughing Seed Cafe.
The story of Dobrá Tea begins in Prague during the last few years of Communism, where as a group of young tea lovers we began meeting to sample rare Indian, Chinese and Japanese teas smuggled into Czechoslovakia. Because of a shortage of foreign currency, high quality teas were then available exclusively to the Party, State and Military elite.
Then came the “Velvet Revolution” and the Fall of Communism in 1989. In 1992, “The Society of Tea Devotees,” was formed and the following year our first Bohemian-style tearoom, Dobrá Čajovna, opened in Prague. The Čajovna (tearoom) became a shelter, a place for safety, where like minded individuals could gather and taste the world of tea. Much success blossomed with Dobrá’s idea and the company began to spread its tea concept to many small towns throughout Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland. In 2003 Dobrá Tea opened its first U.S. tearoom in Burlington, VT and years followed to Portland, Maine and Asheville opened in 2010. We welcome you to visit our humble, Japanese style Tearoom that opened in August of 2013 in Black Mountain, NC.
Traveling to tea growing countries annually, we have gone to great distances to source all of our teas directly from their regions of origin. Our Tea menu is arranged by country, and each tea tells its own story based on our travels and experience with each variety.
The tearoom gives us the opportunity to share our passion of tea and culture with the Asheville community. You may find the tearoom is something between a church or a pub. Many see it a place where they can relax easily, engage in good conversation or meet a loved one for the first time.
