2017 is looking very promising for Southern California residents and visitors interested in protecting animals, improving their health, and preventing environmental destruction.

Plant Power Fast Food, San Diego’s vegan fast-food drive-up eatery, is set to open a second location. Buckle up, because it gets better: The restaurant will feature an eight-car drive-up Other bonuses include outdoor seating and a “living” patio, where fresh herbs and veggies will be grown for use in the restaurant’s delectable burgers, sauces, and salads.

The opening of this establishment follows the popularity of Amy’s Drive Thru in Northern California and VegeWay Burger in Las Vegas. We’re confident that this compassionate trend will make its way to the East Coast in no time.

Here are some Plant Power Fast Food menu items that keep us California dreamin’ (for now):
