It always feels good to dine at Seeds. The food’s fresh, the crowd’s different from anywhere else downtown and there’s a sense of purpose shared by the volunteer staffers (now under new leadership) and the patrons alike. Per usual, everything is pay-as-you-can (I drop $12 on this particular meal), though the sign says customers donated on average a little under $13 per meal last month.

It’s rare we opt for salads when writing a review, but the vegan kale Caesar salad does good things, simply and cleanly. The house vegan Caesar dressing — cashew-based — bears a bright, lemony zip I thoroughly dig. Croutons and nutritional yeast do fine, but it’s all about fresh greens and dressing on this plate. Sadly, there’s not much flavor in a vegan split pea soup. Undercooked black-eyed peas and mild-flavored broth direly need salt, pepper and some kind of herb or spice profile. But, silver linings: The potatoes are cooked properly. At least tomorrow’s soup will be different.
