Respond to Review of Hibiscus
by maulydaft

Review: UPDATE: After so many years I finally went to Hibiscus and didn't have trouble ordering a VEGAN crepe (they use Diaya now). The menu is a LITTLE better now with labeling and the server was right on when I inquired about vegan stuff. The ice creem IS really really good. I went back a week later for take out ice creem but unfortunately they gave me two scoops of the same flavour instead of one and one. Language barrier again I think. But anyway the food IS good... A year ago I went in and was excited because the crepes were listed as dairy and egg free - cool! But when I saw all the different options for the insides (savory) they all had cheese. When I inquired about getting one without there was a language barrier and trying to get across "no cheese" wasn't working. I was starving so I had to leave. Much later I heard from others that this place was vegan. So I vowed to try again. But deja vu. The menu hadn't changed at all and when I asked for a crepe without cheese I had the same problem as before. But I stuck with it and got a vegan one made and it was very yummy. They are very nice there and I liked what I ordered. Just too bad that the place really isn't vegan... and they didn't seem to offer vegan cheese either.

I'm surprised you didn't find a vegan crepe on their menu. I go there all the time (in the summer) and there are always vegan options available, and there is soy cheese available (which I believe is rennet free). I never have a problem communicating with the friendly servers.
