It's Only Natural is a quaint, friendly cafe in downtown Middletown. It attracts a crowd (even at lunch hours on a Wednesday it had a good number of tables occupied) and offers an all-vegan menu (though they do offer dairy cheese on some dishes if you want it).
My friend and I shared a few dishes. We skipped the appetizers as none of them seemed too interesting (think "nachos" and "hummus") and they were all pretty expensive (in the $9-10 range).
We had a cajun tempeh sandwich ($12) and a pierogi ($13) to start. I really liked the sandwich as it had some nice spices and felt fresh and filling. Both of us really loved the sweet potato fries that came with the dish as well. The pierogi dish was good, but not as good as the sandwich, in my opinion; for one thing, all you get is four pierogis, filled with tofu, along with a bed of spinach, an apple marinade, caramelized onions, brown rice, and some tofu sour cream. For $13 it felt like a small portion size and was just really basic.
For dessert we shared a slice of "teasecake" (vegan cheesecake; $7) and a slice of chocolate-hazelnut cake ($7). The chocolate cake was good, but not great. I wish it had been just slightly sweeter, and the hazelnut flavor had been more evident, but the texture was good. The cheesecake was excellent, however; it was smooth, creamy and had a wonderful interplay of vanilla, cinnamon and a little hint of fruit (maybe pear? apple?).
It's Only Natural also offers a pretty good selection of unusual beers and wines. The service was friendly and prompt.
On a whole, I was impressed with some of the food here and I look forward to trying other dishes in the future.
