While the Crescent Cafe is inside the New Moon Natural Foods store in Truckee, don’t write the cafe off as a place suitable for those who only eat veggies. Sure, the salad bar uses only organic produce, and the soup bar always has vegan and dairy-free selections, but there are soups with meat, and it will be antibiotic and hormone-free. The sandwich menu is vast and varied. Try the Yellow Submarine with grilled wild-caught tuna salad, melted Jack cheese and tomatoes on sourdough. And if you're a vegetarian you have choices like the vegan Maggie's Farm with roasted red bell peppers, marinated eggplant and pesto on ciabatta bread. All sandwiches can be made on gluten-free bread.
