Terri gets five stars for quick service and excellent food. I return often to try new menu items. My friends told me how they found it and I agree it is a great place worth checking out.

Terri's a great place to grab a quick, delicious, affordable vegan sandwich. My friend and I shared a chickpea tuna melt ($8), a Daiya quesadilla ($6) and a chocolate-agave donut ($2).

The tuna melt was delicious with a substantial heft to the herbed bread, and a wonderfully savory filling (tomatoes, chickpeas, vegan mayo, etc.).

The Daiya quesadilla was spectacular (thanks to Cass Danger for the recommendation!) and took me back to my pre-vegan days. It artfully used both types of melty Daiya cheese with red and green bell peppers to produce an authentic, and delicious, taste. They even managed to reproduce the scrumptious, oily nature of a cheesy quesadilla somehow.

Lastly, the chocolate agave donut was tasty and had good texture. It was less of a donut and more of a cake/brownie in the shape of a donut, but it was still really good. Not too sweet.

Terri would get five stars if it offered some mockmeat breakfast sandwiches, and if it had more seating (it's more of a grab and go joint for office workers and has only six or seven window-facing stools for patrons who want to eat there). Otherwise, this place is still a gem and worth checking out.

Delicious vegan donuts!!! Very moist. If we're back in this neighborhood, we'll definitely try some of the sandwiches or wraps.

Terri is a great place for a quick, delicious vegan lunch. The bacon chicken ranch sandwich is one of the best sandwiches that I have ever tasted. The fridge case has a nice selection of homemade flavored lemonades. I'm also a huge fan of the Butterfinger shake. The only dish that has disappointed me so far at Terri is the chicken quesadilla - the hot sauce overpowers the delicious flavor of the melted Daiya cheese.

Excellent new stop for sandwiches, wraps, salads, and smoothies right on 23rd street.

Try the Buffalo 'chicken', the 'Meatball' sub, and other new versions of traditional sub-shop sandwiches. They also have less faux-meatish options in salads, a roasted veggie sandwhich, and the like.

They use daiya, vegenaise, tofurkey and the like.

All menu items are 100% vegan per the staff and the menu - they seemed pretty knowledgeable.

It took me like 2 months to get here, but I am so glad I finally made it through. I went with friends last Sunday, then went again for dinner on Tuesday, and then for a snack on Wednesday. I tried several of the sandwiches, including the vegan chicken quesadilla with Daiya cheese (which is FANTASTIC!), the vegan chicken/bacon/ranch wrap (quite yummy), and the vegan chickpea tuna melt (which was good, but would have benefitted from the filling being warm, versus a cold filling in an otherwise warm sandwich). I liked that the chickpea tuna filling isn't as processed as the frequently-used "tuno", but at the same time, it doesn't give you the same "tuna-ish" texture/flavor, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, depending on what you're going for.

For my sides, I had the sweet potato fries, and they were good, but I was disappointed to find out that they were really roasted sweet potatoes, and not the crunch, fried goodness that I was expecting. I also had the vegan potato salad, which was good, but I think it could have benefitted from more Veganaise (I'm a Veganaise NUT).

As for the desserts....YUUUUUUUUUM! I had a different donut every time I went and all of them were spectacular. I had a chocolate chip donut with vanilla glaze (yummy), an apple cider donut (super yummy), and then a double chocolate donut (outstanding!). The donuts are baked, not fried, so they aren't the vegan alternative to what Dunkin Donuts is offering, but they are absolutely delicious in their own right. The chocolate donuts tasted like really dense brownies. All were very flavorful.

Terri seems to be quite busy and successful (awesome!) but I'm hoping once they get a better hang of things, that they'll be able to move away from using so much packaging, either by using reusable plates, or at least serving sides on the same plate as sandwiches when you dine in, versus serving dine-in sides in plastic containers.
