I'm mostly vegetarian, but not always

The selection of food is a bit limited in some area's like breads and soy milk, but what they do have is always excellent and fresh. The people are friendly and helpful and the bulk food is excellent.. The Veg Jerky is to die for.. Both the mild and spicy..
The Bay Leaf was a pleasant surprise when my wife and I stumbled onto it last year. Some friends had recommended it to us prior to the night we found it. One of the rare joy's of the food was that it was so beautifully prepared. The presentation of the food on the plate actually made me feel a twinge of guilt when I jabbed my fork into it and took a taste. Kinda like the twinge you get when chomping the ears off a chocolate bunny, that isn't your bunny, at Easter... The first bite was heavenly, the smell, texture and the taste was fantastic... The only complaint I had was the portions did seem a bit on the small side. Not small in the a serving is 1 1/2 cup and its so tasty I want 3 more servings, more along the line of the 1 1/2c is the serving and It was a 3/4c serving... But all in all I thought the price was reasonable and the service was excellent.. If they bumped the portions up a bit and left the price alone I think they would have people lined up out the door..
I was very impressed with the bartenders at the Mash Tun. They are quick and quite friendly, I ordered the Black Bean Burger and it was excellent, huge portions and the house beer was quite good too. If your a Hummus fan then the hummus at this place will not disappoint you.. excellent all the way around..
