Just wanted to correct the review below...DTE does carry vegan cream cheese and sour cream...just look for the Tofutti brand labeled "Better than cream cheese" and "Better than Sour Cream." DTE even sells vegan pesto, which is wonderful, and happens to make a yummy spread when mixed with the vegan cream cheese or sour cream!

I really enjoyed this place. I've eaten at the buffet here a number of times and have loved everything I've had. My favorites include the quinoa croquettes w/ basil sauce and the BBQ Korean tofu from the hot buffet and then the mock chicken salad (which can also be made into a sandwich/wrap) and the potato salad from the deli. I had a peanut butter/chocolate bar, which was pretty good, but the vegan chocolate cream pie was awesome.

The store has a great selection of vegan products (unfortunately, no vegan sour cream or cream cheese), but as mentioned in the below comment, their produce is very expensive.

Close to University Ave, but if you're driving, you'll have to be heading East along S King. They have a car park upstairs.
