The folks that run this place are very hip and extremely friendly. If you are in the Milwaukee area, you can call them up and set up a time to go to the warehouse and try stuff on. I must have tried on several pairs of shoes, which was great, because often you don't always get what you expect when you order stuff on line. I highly recommend purchasing from this great company.
It is hard to find a coffee shop in St. Paul that offers vegan bakery, and this place usually has a few options. Today i had a strawberry-rhubarb scone which was made with whole wheat flour and it was very good. They also offer organic and fair trade coffee. Another perk is the parking lot in back for customers. If the lot is full, there should be plenty of street parking on Minnehaha. The staff is always friendly. They stay open until 11pm on weekdays for the student set.
While it's true that MS Market is not as vegan friendly as, say, the Wedge, as an employee at this location I know that they have a fair amount of vegan options in the deli grab case. When I'm working I always make a few different vegetarian and vegan sandwiches and wraps. Also, the vegan bakery items are not always labeled "vegan." I'm not sure why that is, but if you read the ingredients there are usually at least 2 different vegan cookies, one vegan scone, and usually a vegan muffin as well. They also consistently offer vegan chocolate cake and "shebas" which are not labeled as vegan but I assure you they are, and they're quite heavenly. You can also ask the juice bar to make vegan sandwiches and they'll be more than happy to oblige.
Pandora is a great place to study, since they're open later than any coffee shop on the U campus. And it no longer reeks of smoke since the smoking ban took effect. I also appreciate the atmosphere and the vegan options which are difficult to find at most coffee shops. The desserts aren't the best I've ever had, but they could be a lot worse. I'll go a few extra miles to hang out here.
Despite the often slow service because they are usually under-staffed, this is my favorite restaurant in Milwaukee. I usually order one of two dishes, the Musammun curry or the Basil noodles. They also have an wonderful Ginger-vegetable salad with tofu and a peanut dressing that is to die for. What I especially love about this place though are their spring rolls: the best I've ever had anywhere, because they are FRESH, not deep-fried like at most places. Tofu, rice vermicelli, fresh mint and cilantro, crispy carrots, lettuce and cucumber, served in rice wrappers, sprinkled with crushed peanuts and an amazing sweet peanut dipping sauce. Trust me when I say you won't be disappointed.
Best Mexican in the city. The selection of vegetarian plates are impressive, and most of the items on the vegetarian menu are vegan by default. The tacos de vegetales are incredible. Red and green bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, garlic, all sauteed and served in soft flour shells, with sides of delicious, saucy black beans and cilantro-flecked rice. This is my favorite plate, but the veggie burrito is also pretty good, and the guacamole is amazing. The only complaint I have about this place is that the vegetarian items seem to be more expensive than the rest of the menu.
