I moved to Davis with my fiancé in September 2007. We are both vegan & have been pleasantly surprised by all that Davis has to offer.

Forever grateful to: E.B. White, for writing "Charlotte's Web"-the book that let a little girl know I was not the only one who felt it was wrong to eat the animals I loved.

Howdy, April, and welcome to the wiki... For that matter, welcome to Davis. If you have any questions, feel free to ask — the wiki community, just like Davis itself, is pretty darn friendly. Glad to have you here. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards

2008-01-10 08:23:57   Welcome to davis and the Wiki. If you are ever in SF- Go to Cafe Gratitude, its raw, vegan and really, really good! =) —MyaBrn Thanks, Mya! I had a delicious vegan pizza at a place called, Fellini's in Berkeley, but I still haven't made it to "Cafe Gratitude" yet. —AprilAries

re: [Cash, credit for orders $5.00+ (That's illegal!!!)] Is it illegal? I see small businesses all over Davis that have a minimum amount required for CC charges.-AprilAries

  • The major credit card companies (Visa, Master Card, etc) prohibit a minimum purchase requirement. They are not supposed to do that under the terms of their contract as a merchant (link, link). —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
    • In addition, there's a code in California that makes it illegal for any place to charge extra or add a fee to a credit card purchase. IE, no +penalty pricing. However, it is legal to "offer discounts for the purpose of inducing payment by cash, check, or other means not involving the use of a credit card". In brief summation: if they take visa, they should accept it without fee whether you want to charge 30 cents or 30 dollars.

I only asked if it was illegal because someone wrote "That's illegal!" on Café Méditerranée's page. It seemed odd to single them out when I've seen minimum purchase requirements at lots of places. —AprilAries
