Kayas serves more Vegan food then other places i have been too. The downside The staff is ALWAYS SLOW, and seem like a bunch of air head, but are always welcoming. Other then that they have a great selection of food (Lential Loaf.. yum!!) and they have plenty of desserts. SUNDAY VEGAN BUFFET for about $20.00 per person, to be on the safe side, try and call for a reservation because it can be crazy busy their.

I look forward to Kayas all the time.

On 6/18/05 my fiancee and I went to Kaya's for dinner after riding the coasters at Six Flags. I wasn't sure what to expect since I'd heard that VeggieWorks had changed ownership (up until today the veggieworks website was still up). I was delighted to see (and taste) that things were still as good as I had read. Kaya's is a small place with a lot of heart.

We had a 'Kaya's Kombo' appetizer which included buffalo style tofu with a cucumber ranch dipping sauce, BBQ Rib style seitan strips, 'chicken' nuggets and some potato salad. For dinner I had their 'Chicken-Fried' Gluten Steak with mashed potatoes and gravy. Mmmm. So good. She had a special that night, Seitan Stroganoff over pasta. Excellent as well. She picked out all the onions though. She does that all the time. While we were completely stuffed (she took more than half her dish home... which I ate last night), we still had to get dessert. She got peach cobbler and I got a chocolate mocha cake slice.

We liked Kaya's Kitchen so much we decided to change our plans for the next day. Instead of driving back home to Connecticut, we went back to Belmar and had brunch at Kaya's Kitchen. HUGE pancakes, tofu scramble, home fries, soy sausage, toast and fresh squeezed OJ. My fiancee had Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip pancakes, aka 'The Happy Hippie'. I had 'The Hungry Vegan' special, which included all the things I listed before, with my choice of pancake and fruit. I picked whole wheat pancakes with banana. Tasty tasty. Neither of us could finish our heaping stack of pancakes, so those came home too. I could not be happier with out choice to go to Kaya's. If you're in that area, check it out!
