Zeppelin & Kaleidoscope is one of the few vegetarian/vegan restaurants in this area of New England. They aim to please, and will delete or substitute ingredients to fulfill the patron’s request.
Its breakfast menu, which includes bagels, egg and cheese sandwiches, etc., is served all day. For lunch and dinner, they offer soups, wraps, five different veggie burgers, and eight kinds of sandwiches, including the Inner Child (a cheese panini) and The Fungus Among Us (a mushroom, onion, and cheese panini). Their reuben is vegetarian, as is their Green Monster salad platter and their Falafel platter, which features chickpea croquettes.
Zep & Kal serves a wide variety of natural drinks, including juices, carbonated beverages, fair trade coffee, and teas. Cakes, cookies, muffins, and ice creams feature in their dessert list.
There are four tables inside and six outside during good weather. The restaurant also has a grocery area, with a large selection of natural, organic, vegan, and gluten free foods, including spices, teas, cookies, candy, nut butters, etc. – even Marmite. They also carry a selection of natural and ecological friendly cleaning supplies and housewares.
Zeppelin & Kaleidoscope is open seven days a week, from early morning to early evening. Check out their website for their menu and hours.
