Casual place to grab a bite to eat on "Eat Street". We like the option for outdoor seating, though the inside has classic diner charm! There's a fair variety of veg options, and those that are vegetarian can easily be veganized by choosing Daiya cheese or substituting tofu for other ingredients. Gotta love that vegan milkshake!

I love the vibe at The Bad Waitress. It has a funk factor rarely found elsewhere in the Twin Cities. It's especially fun on a warm summer evening when they open up all the garage-style windows that line one whole side of the joint. And their vegan shakes? One word... WOWIE. Those are worth the trip alone. They also have an amazing vegan chocolate cake as well as a yummy slice of vegan banana bread that I usually get to-go while I'm chowing down my shake. I go there all the time for the dessert. I've only eaten a meal there once, for breakfast. I was really looking forward to it and wanted to love it as much as their desserts, but alas... it was just okay. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they made an effort to at least offer it, but, well, the effort was rather minimal. I'll have to go back and try some of their dinner time vegan offerings. For now, I'll just stick with the vegan shakes, chocolate please.
