Word of Duck's Soup reached me from my local vegetarian society. On my first trip to this new cafe I was happy to see the staff energetic, helpful and as advertised, smiling. I ordered a large iced chai latte (their chai is unsweetened and they made my latte with soy milk for a perfect summertime vegan treat). My meal was their hummus wrap, a cup of their vegan veggie chili, and a vegan chocolate chip cookie. The total was less than $15, a good deal since the chili came with a wholegrain roll and the wrap came with a side salad. They're very nice ladies and the food was fresh and tasted excellent. I'd love to see the vegan items a little more clearly labeled, but that doesn't stop me from giving Duck's Soup a big thumbs up and wishing them all the best luck. Quinnie students are going to be lucky to have this place so close when they get back in the fall.
*Update* Kathleen, one of the owners, has been working magic and trying to get even more vegan options. One recent change was to their pasta dough, they have vegan pierogies now! Make sure you ask for the vegan ones. They had them in regular Potato, in Sweet Potato (mmm), and in Sauerkraut, served with a side of sauteed cabbage & apple.
