The Tempest was definitely my favorite restaurant in Wolfville. Vegetarians may be a little happier eating here than vegans (there are several lacto-ovo vegetarian options listed on each menu), but I still was able to order a wonderful meal. When I visited, the vegan soup of the day was a chilled orange date soup with "Moroccan" spices. It was a sweet, thick soup with a clove aftertaste - definitely one of the more innovative soups that I have tried. I was able to order the beet salad without the goat cheese, which turned out to be pretty good even with the omission. The yellow beets were served in a delicious dressing, accompanied with candied pecans and micro greens. For my entree, the chef prepared the lemon and nettle risotto sans cheese. The arborio rice gave it a smooth, creamy consistency so I didn't even notice the lack of cheese. For dessert, I was offered a cup of homemade sorbet, made from locally-grown blueberries.
