Small diner that focuses on locally grown food (including from their own garden).

"The Tiny Diner and Farm is a small place with big ideas. We believe it's the little things that count, so we're creating menus with as many local foods as we can, including the stuff we grow ourselves.

We're producing energy with our patio roof/solar array, increasing urban soil fertility, and creating a natural habitat for pollinators and urban wildlife in what's basically our own backyard."

Almost no vegan options and the ones they have are really bland. Somewhat betrays what they originally said before this place opened -- "numerous vegan options." The wait staff didn't really even seem to know they had vegan options at that. Major gap of communication between the workers and the person producing the vision for this place.

Not a lot of vegan options as yet. For brunch my options were some sides, a couple pretty good looking salads and a tofu scramble. I opted for the latter and it was quite good (though it was more like a tofu, mushroom, carrot, &c. stir fry). Our server said there will be a vegan (or "vegan-izable") sandwich on the menu soon.

I went back for dinner and their vegan selection was even thinner. They have no vegan bread. A couple of the salads can be made vegan by omitting cheese. The "macro bowl" is entirely vegan - but not very good.

Everything else about Tiny Diner is quite good. If they ever take vegan food seriously I will happily try it again.
