Excellent vegetarian organic food by the pound

Restaurant, Caterer

A short walk from the city center, The Table is a buffet-style eatery that's almost all organic and all vegetarian (about half of their dishes are vegan). A good strategy is to scope out the whole buffet before you get started to make sure you have room on your plate for everything you want to try. Don't forget dessert!

Great food and a good variety you don't find everywhere. The dandelion salad was a real treat - though I wondered where the dandelion greens came from in January. The Jewish apple cake was worth the trip! I wouldn't recommend the chocolate mousse dish though - not chocolately. I would have preferred seeing local foods highlighted on the signs.
Service was friendly. Dinner for two, including dessert and 1 coffee, was about $25.00
Have returned several times since the initial review above and found that the food is still good (though never hot enough), but they don't serve the Jewish apple cake every day any more, which is a shame. Well worth a visit.

There are many many choices, served buffet style and sold by weight. Many great breads and desserts too. The food is generally quite good. The dining area is self seating and is quiet. The only drawback of buffet style restaurants should be noted however: it is hard to keep the food hot. Aside from that, absolutely no complaints and highly recommended. Even a few non-vegetarian friends have enjoyed it. Definitely worth a try.
