Aside of Heart makes the best smoothie in town. It also serves vegan pizza, vegan cupcakes, and experimenting with a vegan brunch buffet on Saturday. Its Oatmeal Breakfast Sausage is unique in their yummy breakfast scramble. Local and organic ingredients, with hours striving to eventually become a 24/7 vegan cafe. Stay tune on their Facebook page for specials and events!
Went at 1pm on sat 10-23 for lunch and it was closed. No phone recording. Sign says 9-7pm everyday except for wed. Advise calling to make sure they are open prior to going. We were greatly disappointed. The interior looked clean and not out of business though.
Service is a bit slow and forgetful, but the dinner's food quality was great. Menu prices are reasonable with decent portion sizes. The 7x dosai and 7x uthappam platter for $14 was a good sampler to try. They were vegan-friendly, leaving out ghee and diary at request. The atmosphere is good. Compared to other veg Indian restaurants, they don't use all the disposables like Woodlands and the menu is a little bit easier to understand than Udupi's.
Friendly staff, free wifi, great flavors & selections (even for vegans!), everything home-made! The gelatos are so decadent! The almond flavor is awesome. Look for coupons in the in student insider!
It's a great place to get some authentic Chinese food! Restaurant is owned by a Cantonese family, very sweet and accommodating to vegans! There are some very unique and seasonal Chinese vegetables available. Very reasonably priced w/ great portions and flavors. Not one of those silly restaurants that serve a tiny cup of rice and charge a lot for extra! Located next to Trader Joe's and Changing Hands book store, it's a great place to visit!
No vegan options, staff not accommodating nor knowledgeable. Way over priced.
Maybe we had high expectations based on previous reviews, but we were very disappointed with our visit. Even though we had requested for substitutions after explaining we are vegans, our food arrived with the yogurt sauce and feta cheese anyway. Everything was disposabe (mostly styrofoam) other than the basket and tray. Expect to pay at least $8+/meal, and the food and portions were really average. We would not recommend this place as vegan-friendly or above-average.
Went there on Tues 10/19/2010 at 6:15pm, and it's just a closed unit. It used to be That's a Wrap. This location is not published on Green's official website either (greenvegetarian.com).
The prices are actually about 8 bucks for dinner and 6 bucks for lunch. Lunch special comes w/ salad and spring roll. Great curry! All full of veggies and tofu! The coconut soup is great! The spicy noodle and all their flat wide noodles are great. DON'T FORGET TO REQUEST EVERYTHING TO BE MADE WITHOUT FISH SAUCE!!!! Their mango w/ purple or white sticky rice is delicious!
I felt that their portions and prices weren't great/worth it (the large Vegetarian pizza is like a medium Papa John's pizza for $22). The flavors are good. They were stingy on the non-dairy cheese though, so it was like a cream sparsely pasted on the pizza. They were honest when asked (before we ordered) that although the menu says olive oil on bread, they actually use butter. The garlic cheese bread is pre-baked so we can't get a non-dairy version. The happy hour $5 dolmas and hummus can be made vegan and was pretty good. The hummus was heavy garlic and it came w/ 2 tinsy pieces of toasted bread corners. Charged us extra for 2 pieces of pita bread to finish the hummus. I saw another table where they just ordered by the slice, not sure how much that is but maybe a better value since the slice is much larger than the ones off the largest pizza they offer on the menu.
New vegan menu including vegan baked ziti and spaghetti with faux sausage. Best vegan Italian in town. Owner and staff is super friendly and accommodating. Live music on the weekend. Great family own and run establishment.
The Kik Watt (yellow split pea) and Shiro Watt were awesome. Overall food quality is better than Cafe Lalibela. We were told that the injera (bread) is made with teff, which is very authetic and expensive, but that other restaurants don't use as much of. Tina was very charming and made sure everybody is full and happy! We heard they closed until Feb08 to prepare for the move to a location across the street. Note also the buffet is by request only, call/email in advance. Although, the platter had a good variety and don't hesitate to ask for more!
In addition to the salad bar, the cook-to-order hot food menu is good. The coconut sweet potato soup was amazing! Delicious falafel bar. Nice staff (one of them is vegan for sure) and good service.
The lunch specials were exceptionally cheap ... under 5 bucks which included entree+rice, soup, and tea!! Many mock meat (chicken, pork, beef, squid) options plus veggies and tofu ... I tried the mock squid; it was pretty good and quite real. They had good coconut juice too! Portions were good. Very relaxing music playing. Check it out!
Visited 1.5 years later, and the food is just as delicous (sorry forgot to review this last time)! I believe they are only open for lunch now until 2pm. It is great for both a quick or long lunch - dim sum is prepared in advance and the entrees on the menu didn't take long. The dim sum is absolutely the best vegan ones I have had (compared to Phoenix and San Francisco's). There is so many varieties, and many of them use taro as fillings. Our absolute favorite is stuffed mochi rice wrapped in leaves. The ong choy (hollow vegetables, aka water spinach) is available and good off the menu!
This location has a bigger menu than the King Street location. Friendly staff, awesome menu and food. A good variety of vegan desserts and (eastern and western) entrees. Lunch specials available Monday-Friday. A little tricky to get to the restrooms. Free parking across the street.
The tuno sandwich is the best; the katzu curry has this awesome breaded chicken on top of curry with rice. Open until 10:30pm at night satisfying late night hunger ;)
Not nearly as good as Loving Hut-Pensacola, Simple Joy, or Legends Veg Cafe, but the Bi Bim Bap and the kinako latte/ice cream were unique and great. I wish this restaurant stops using so much disposables - every plate, bowl, and cup!
Huge menu of all vegan options! A little weak with just 1 vegan dessert, but the food and drink menu make up for it. A variety of eastern and western dishes. We were told the cooks are Vietnamese, but they sure made some delicious pasta dishes! The pumpkin soup was one of the best soups I have had.
Restaurant serves seafood, not pure vegetarian. The lemon chicken resembles McDonald's chicken mcnuggets with honey mustard sauce ;o) The hot & sour and wonton soups are both delicious.
