vegetarian jazz bar/cafe

Restaurant, Bar

Puppet's Jazz Bar is an all-vegetarian cafe and jazz bar. They feature live jazz music nearly every night, which is sometimes free and sometimes charges a cover. They often close around 2am, but they don't have an official closing time, it depends on the band and how the night's going.

The all-veg menu includes veggie dogs, burgers, wraps, and various sandwiches (Reuben, seitan steak, etc). Most items are vegan and you can ask your server to be sure. Most menu items are between $6-10 and they feature a $5 veggie burger lunch special between 11am-3pm. They also server brunch on Sundays from 12-3pm.

Happy hour is Mon-Friday from 5-8pm and includes $1 off beers and $2 off other drinks.

Minimum delivery order is $10 and minimum credit card purchase is $15.

What a lovely restaurant! I've walked by many times but only recently dined here. The food is varied and affordable and the service is friendly. I was in on a Thursday evening that started off a little slower than usual so I just read my magazine while I ate. The music started around 7:30pm and a sizable group of jazz-lovers streamed in.

I decided on the daily special, which was not called a salad, but it was basically a salad. I am normally NOT a salad person, but this was really good because it was very hearty - minimal lettuce, and lots of seitan, avocado, and other toppings. It was $10 and very good. I also had the chips and guacamole. The guacamole was very good but I think the chips were a little to hard/thick for my taste. I prefer lighter chips, but there was nothing wrong with them.

I had a lovely evening here and will definitely be back to try the vegan reuben!
