After years of rumors that the Saturn might open up a second location in the city, they’ve opted for Berkeley instead, and are planning to open this month at 2175 Allston Way. If you’ve never been to Saturn Cafe, you’re missing out. Nachos, nacho fries, burgers with spicy chipotle sauce (seriously, you want this), and vegan milkshakes. Not everything on the menu is vegan, but everything is at least vegetarian with plenty of vegan or can-be-made vegan choices.
Saturn Cafe used to be open 24 hours, and rounding up anyone still online and road-tripping down to Santa Cruz in the middle of the night was a ritual. If the rumors are true, the new Berkeley location will be open until 2 a.m. Not quite late enough for the Lost Boys’ schedule, but anywhere that stays open past 10 p.m. (when San Francisco restaurants have to run home for curfew) might actually get me crossing the bridge.
