I have owned 3 different directories of natural food restaurants and stores, and this one is by far the best! I used "Tofu Tollbooth' for years, and it was good to have, but eventually it was very outdated, and never was as complete as it could have been. "The Artichoke trail" was almost useless... it was very incomplete and didn't diferentiate the vegetarian from non-vegetarian places.
This book is awesome! It has ten times the listings of "tofu Tollbooth", with lots more info on each location and great directions to each location. It has a great resources section listing the ingredients used by many national chains of restaurants, and many great resources for vegetarians on the web.
I am on the road about two weeks a month, and this book has been so valuable. I WON'T TRAVEL WITHOUT IT! THANK YOU!

Compiled by world traveler and dedicated vegetarian John Howley, Vegetarian Restaurants & Natural Food Stores is an exhaustive, thoroughly "user friendly" guide on where to buy natural foods or eat vegetarian meals throughout America. Especially recommended as being an excellent resource for vegetarians on vacation, business trips, or who have moved into a new community, Vegetarian Restaurants & Natural Food Stores lists restaurants and stores by state, and includes addresses, phone numbers, open hours, comments, and very detailed directions for each place.
