Located in Canoga Park since 1970, the atmosphere of this vegetarian establishment is both comfortable and casual. Some have described it as a trip back into the ‘70s, but it’s simply a place where people can be themselves. It’s one of those places that will start to feel like home after a while and many customers can be seen dining on a daily basis.
The wooden decor lends itself to the community feeling for which Follow Your Heart is famous. Patrons may dine at the counter or at a table inside or out on the relaxing patio. The counter is an especially unique part of the café experience, and many a friendship has begun as a result of a “chance encounter” here.
Their home-style comfort food is modestly priced and the portions are generous. The menu is lacto-vegetarian, meaning that they include some dairy products, but use no meat, poultry, fish or eggs. Most items are available for vegans (made without any animal products including honey) and they use seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible. There’s also a gluten-free menu.
Follow Your Heart is located at 21825 Sherman Way in Canoga Park. Call (818) 348-3240.
