Respond to Review of Kensington Natural Bakery and Cafe
Review: They have about 14 vegetarian dishes on hand, and all or almost all of them are vegan. I had the "special" - portions of any three dishes, plus a bowl of soup, for $6 including tax. It is hard to find a cheaper meal in Toronto. It is true that the portions are not large, but if you want more food, it looks like you can get individual portions of any dish for $1.75 for 100g. Or pay another $6 to have the special all over again, and you'll still be doing pretty well. It's not without its drawbacks, though. The food is kept refrigerated and is microwaved for you upon request - and mine ended up not being heated all the way through. And the dishes seem to be a little heavy on the cheap ingredients: Two of my dishes were supposed to contain "sosoya" (a sort of TVP-like fake meat), but I think there was only about one piece of sosoya between them. But even without the sosoya, the food tasted very good - it was all seasoned and cooked just right. For dessert, we decided to try some of the pastries. A "blueberry square" (a tart-like thing) seemed to be mostly cornstarch, with very little blueberry at all. The apple square was much better.
