COOL Cuisine is a coalition of individuals and organizations seeking more plant-based, planet-friendly, and health conscious dining and shopping options in Davis, CA and the surrounding region through outreach, restaurant meetups, and special events. Our members vote with their wallets!

We are also working to enhance the plant-based options for K-12 and UCD students, and to provide education and more nutritious, plant-based options to those with limited resources in our community.

Our blog provides resources for restaurants to learn more about how to welcome plant-based diners. It is a go-to-local-information source for diners about where they can locate for a hassle-free meal. We also provide here some basic resources (including local ones) for those trying to eat an increasingly plant-based diet.

Q: Why do we eat plant-based?

A: 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.

Coalition partners include Cool DavisVegans of Davis, and P.E.A.C.E at UC Davis (People for the Elimination of Animal Cruelty through Education).
