low fat, vegetarian restaurant in Gloucester?

  • 4

My parents are coming to town. Usually we end up at Chinese restaurants, or Indian. Any ideas for where to go after we hike Dogtown?

  1. I'm going to reply assuming that this is a serious post and not a joke....I'd be SO happy if there were a low-fat, veg option in Gloucester!

    In Downtown Gloucester Passports has some decent veg options, but I don't believe any would qualify as low-fat. Sugar Mag's serves lunch until 2 and they have a veg quesadilla and sandwich on the menu. There's also the Pleasant St Tea Co and they have sandwiches and salads, some are good veg options. Very casusal, order-at-counter place.

    In Annisquam there is the Willow Rest a fabulous grocery/takeout place that has two very good veg sandwiches on the menu, cold drinks, snacks and great produce. Couple tables on-site too.

    I'd say that if you're committed to low-fat, veg you're probably going to have to head to Beverly or Salem. I'd be pleased if someone has better suggestions. Happy Hikinh!

      thank you! this is for my parents, who are also looking for low-salt...but there's only so much I can do!

    2. Alchemy has a few things that might work. This is their new lunch menu: http://www.alchemybistro.com/01_menus...

        ah, that might work! at least I can get the fish tacos I've been craving, and my parents can eat leaves.
