The premiere vegan/vegetarian spot in Columbia  is Blue Cactus Café (2002 Greene St., 803/929-0782, Tues.–Fri. 11 a.m.–3 p.m. and 5–9 p.m., Sat. noon–9 p.m., $7–10). While the veggie burrito is to die for, carnivores will be pleased at the various spicy meat dishes offered, especially in Southwestern and Korean—yes, Korean—cuisine. This is the kind of place where the service is as slow as it is friendly, so consider it a lifestyle decision rather than a quick stop.
