it's a bit off of route 1, but andersen's
split pea soup in buellton is really good and i think it's vegan.
eat at nepenthe in big sur, you wont regret it. it's right on highway 1 (which i assume you'll be taking). i dunno about vegan stuff, but the menu's here
. edit: on closer inspection it looks like the vegan options are few, sorry man.
also big sur state park is worth a stop for sure.
in santa cruz you'll have a lot of vegan options. my vegan friends always spoke highly of saturn cafe.
stay away from the santa cruz boardwalk (as if you needed me to tell you that). i used to live by the seabright brewery and they have great beers. go surfing if you're inclined, or if you've got knobby tires head up to ucsc and check out the fire trails.
north of sc highway one gets kinda sketchy, lots of cliffs and blind turns, be careful.
north of there you're getting past my old stomping grounds. but good luck! i'm jealous.
i never did make it to humboldt, but from what i understand its main attraction is definitely worth the trip
