Comfort food for veg*ns.

Restaurant, Bar

It is junk food for Veg*ns. They have philly uncheese unsteak, fried unchicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, and all sorts of Veg*ned diner food. Everything is available with a cheese alternative. Be prepared for a lot of deep fried items.

They also have brunch on the weekends.

Note that their soy cheese may contain casein (ask to be sure).

This is a great hangout and is good for large groups but the food is pretty average and I think a lot of items are overpriced. I was really excited to try their "shrimp" bites but it was pretty much battered tofu bites with cocktail sauce. The veggie burger is also so-so; nothing spectacular. Their vegan nachos are good, and their mashed potatoes are amazing, as are the gravy/cheese fries, but their brunch is totally not worth it (super plain tofu scramble).

Most recently, I friend and I ordered the vegan southern chicken dinner for two (something like that), which came with lots of food: fried tofu, BBQ tofu, collards, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, and black eye peas - there was lots of food for about $17 but we both thought that nearly every item on the platter was bland.

Their desserts are also not very good--go to Atlas (2nd Ave btw 4th and 5th) for dessert. Last time I dined, they had no desserts and we were told that they sometimes don't have desserts, as Kate (the owner, I would imagine), does all the baking and doesn't always have time. I guess that's okay for a brand new, tiny vegan restaurant, but this place has been around forever and underwent a decent renovation so I'd expect them to get it together and have a consistent menu.

I went here one time and what I remember about it was my date found hair in her food (mashed potatoes). Despite the hair, the food was ok but nothing special.
