Earth Foods’ own organic-flour pizza
523 Warren St., Hudson
The Deal: Shepherd’s pie
Although this casual breakfast and lunch spot is “safe for vegans,” as co-owner Duffy Sanchez puts it, it’s not just a crunchy-granola temple where carnivores feel like pariahs. The eclectic fare — much of it organic, and all made from scratch, including the bread — includes Cuban and Greek salads, enormous egg burritos, wraps, pizza (with organic dough), couscous, chili, chicken dishes, and hearty soups. “The Bombay vegetable soup for $4.50 is a meal in itself,” Sanchez declares. “And the squash soup is divine.” Sandwiches and wraps run around $6 to $8. The shepherd’s pie, for $10.95, became such a popular cold-weather dish, it’s now on the menu year-round.
Sanchez and her husband, Salvador, opened the restaurant in 1997, and it’s been a pit stop for hordes of antiquers, Hudson locals, and weekenders ever since, as well as a haven for those with dietary concerns.
