In 2018 COOL Cuisine please join our new committee organizing our next tactic to achieve our goals: a Burger Battle!

COOL Cuisine is a coalition of individuals and organizations seeking more plant-based dining options. We have focused on Davis, California for two years. Coalition partners include Cool Davis, Vegans of Davis, and P.E.A.C.E at UC Davis.
Find out about events on (create an account, join us and set settings to allow communication from the organizer).

Our Goal is to encourage more plant-based menu choices when we dine out in local restaurants. We seek:

  1.  more menu items
  2.  clearly-marked menus, and
  3.  wait staff/chefs who are educated about our diet.
In 2018 we are holding periodic restaurant meet ups and potlucks to continue our successes in forming a fun, supportive community of plant-based people.

Find us:  Please  join us on to receive invitations.  Also “Like/share” the COOL Cuisine Davis page and our chat page on facebook. Event participants must respond to an invitation so we can get a headcount for restaurant events. (Or pop us an email at:

Our blog is a resource for restaurants to learn more about how to welcome plant-based diners and a resource for diners about where they can go for a hassle-free meal.

Some reasons people eat a plant-based diet:  To sustain the planet, to sustain our health, and out of compassion for all living things. We also may eat this way for economic reasons, ethical considerations, world hunger issues, and religious beliefs.

Note to restaurants: We encourage you to experiment with new dishes  to see if they are popular.  But we won’t know you are trying something new unless you TELL US. That is why we offer free advertising to restaurants who want to reach our participants. Send us a jpg or png image and we’ll post it here and on our social media. INVITE us to come and try it! We’d love to hear from you.

Your successful creations could become delicious menu fixtures!
