Meet Shanti Dolan

Food has always played a major role in my life, from favorite childhood meals my mom would make to cooking for my own children.

Professionally I had a catering business for many years where my food is what people enjoyed on their wedding day and other memorable occasions. I loved being a part of those special events. 

Through the years as my taste and knowledge evolved, I was drawn to a plant based diet. I started doing plant based meal prep and eventually opened California Homemades. I am blessed , not only to be able to feed people but to nourish them as well. We use the best ingredients and pour all of our love into the preparation and execution of our food, it’s a difference you can taste.

I 'm not a vegan or a health nut but the food here is always delish and the fact that it's good for me just makes it that much better!!! The owner is a sweetheart and it's an adorable spot to hang out and grab a bite to eat. Such a cute place. Food was amazing and fresh. The owner was very knowledgeable about vegan, organic and healthy options...and very friendly. Prices were great and parking on the street was easy. Definitely going back for lunch and probably some soup to go!


I am obsessed with this vegan restaurant. The food is so amazing I eat here almost every day! My go to favorite is pesto and tomato toast with added Avocado! Today she had special mac and cheese man it was so good. Food is so fresh and organic!!!


We went here and loved it! I had the kale Asian salad which has red cabbage, red onions, kale, garbanzo beans, sesame seeds and a very light sesame dressing. It was quite refreshing and filling. My boyfriend had the nachos- so, so, so good! I also had the banana and berries smoothie, and the carrot cake. I loved that carrot cake! I couldn't believe it was vegan!
