Vegetarian Cafe

Haymarket Café has two floors. The main level has a coffee shop with a very hip social atmosphere, and a laid back cafe on the lower level. The cafe offers an eclectic menu of international entrees such as Mediterranean Greek Artichoke Stew, Arroz a la Cubana, Sambar (a thick and flavorful South Indian mild curry soup) and delectable salads, sandwiches, and specials. Breakfast offerings include a Fresh Fruit Bowl and Tofu Vegan Scramble with portabellas, roasted red peppers and potatoes, soy sausage and shallots.

The prices were very reasonable, and the food was tasty and interesting. The dish I had was vegan but it wasn't marked as vegan, unfortunately, and the barista had to call the cook to find out.

This is a pretty cool coffee shop and cafe with interesting vegan sandwiches. I came for tea and desserts, though.

First, they have about six or seven vegan offerings. I tried a "buckeye" ($2) which was a peanut butter chocolate bon bon, and also had a double chocolate cookie. The buckeye was great: rich peanut butter flavor with smooth chocolate. The cookie, on the other hand, was dry and had a weird soy aftertaste (something I haven't encountered in a long time, despite having been vegan for over six years).

I also tried my friend's chocolate mocha cake which looked amazing, but had a sharp soy aftertaste as well. I think Haymarket needs to work on its vegan offerings that have chocolate.

I also had a pot of kikucha tea (twig tea) which was nice to see, as you rarely find that on menus at coffee shops.

The top floor of Haymarket is much more welcoming and hip, but the seats get taken quickly. While there's ample seating downstairs, I found this portion to be dark and depressing and definitely not the type of place I'd want to hang out with a friend.
