For me, and maybe for a lot of people, Herbivore was my introduction to vegan eating. It's not (in my opinion) the best place for veg food anymore now that newer, snazzier places have opened up around town. But it's still really great food (kinda comfort food actually), cheap, and delicious. I love their noodles, falafel, that refreshing mint drink. On a sunny Mission day, when the bold and the beautiful are doing their strut down the catwalk that is Valencia st, this is such a wonderful place to sit outside and be a San Franciscan.
