I came to LoveCafe after being told at their bakery across the street (CakeLove) that nothing vegan was available for the day. In fact, they seemed amused by my question, which didn't set me at ease. But LoveCafe didn't have any vegan options either (and they, too, seemed amused by my asking about vegan goods).

The cafe itself is lame, with generic teabag options, pre-packaged potato chips and nothing special. Some of their booths are covered in what appear to be cowhides, which was also a turn-off. I'm not going to bother with Cakelove or LoveCafe ever again.

I don't trust this place. Not only is most of their menu bacon and eggs, but they never seem to have the vegan baked goods that this entry (posted by the establishment) says they allegedly have. The vegan baked goods they also say are available across the street at the bakery are also suspiciously never there.

I stopped in again last week to ask about vegan bakery and the staff (in a sketchy manner) said they often do have vegan baked goods but just not right then. I asked when they'd have more and she said maybe the next day, but she didn't sound very convincing so I didn't bother to go back.
