I just heard that The Source has a new mini location in North Berkeley! I'm so excited because I have yet to find a good burger around here and I love the ones from The Source!!! Beats Saturn completely! Unfortunately it is a tiny space so it's focused on take out.

i ate at the sf location a few times when it first opened. it was okay. i might have to retry them. i want to pick up a sweet treat - i heard they are good! also i think anything beats Saturns - food, that place is so forking overrated.

I couldn't agree more! The last time I ate there they served me the nastiest burger I have ever had, it had the texture of sand! Not to mention they up charge for vegan cheese and use mostly pre-packaged pre-made food. Boo Saturn!

I heard source has gotten a million times better than when it first opened. I thought it was ok but not worth going out of my way for but I'm wilt to give it another chance.

Got to check this out. It's pretty much take-out only. Even if you can find a stool to perch on you're stuck with eating out of biodegradable containers. But the food was good. Pretty much a good Source experience, with a simplified menu. Friendly staff. Even bumped into the owner while we were there, who was eager to discuss his enthusiasm for the new East Bay location. Thumbs up.

I really want to like this place...has anyone been to source lately?

Last time I went for brunch the menu was so bogus I got up and left without ordering. ( It was embarrassing, but I didn't want peanut butter and jelly french toast etc -- got some twinkies to go)

Is this not common? I don't think I've ever eaten anywhere where vegan "cheese" isn't extra.

Saturn uses a lot of pre-packaged stuff, but they also do a lot of in-house homemade stuff, like vegan ranch or the Saturn patty. They've always been super accommodating and have changed their menu at least twice since opening in Berkeley to offer more vegan options, plus they're open crazy late, so I love them. But to each their own.

Okay, so: a sweet friend picked me up lunch from here the other day (it was a pesto vegetable crepe thing with sweet potato fries, no idea what it is on the menu) and it was freaking delicious, even after having been schlepped from North Berkeley to Oakland.

I keep forgetting this is open! My friend has been there a bunch of times. Their buffalo nugget thingies are out of this galaxy. Like, so good you can pipe all the subliminal angel voices you want through your colored water music or whatever their thing is there.

That's our Veggie Pesto Clutch, which definitely has normal fries as we don't carry the sweet potato kind (yet). Hand-cut fries by yours truly.

I've been a cook there since opening and we've got vegan comfort (junk) food down. We have pizza too! And the best veggie burger in the East Bay. No Daiya, lotsa cashews.

I don't know why I'm remembering sweet potato fries but I will tell you that the fries were also delicious (PPKcut!) and the burger is my absolute A #1 fave.
