Respond to Review of Eden - A Vegan Cafe
Review: I was passing through Scranton and, after doing some Happy Cow research, decided to stop at Eden for lunch. Had I looked up the menu, I certainly would not have bothered. Eden's food is comprised mostly of processed soy products. I'm not hating on faux meats, but, if I go to a restaurant I expect the food to be of higher quality then some store bought pre packaged omni alternatives. Very little of the food listed on the menu was actually cooked in the restaurant, the sandwich list did not contain a single item without store bought fake meat. The menu did also list salads with basic topping options, veggie burgers and dogs and pastas and soups. I should have stuck with a soup and salad, but on recommendation attempted to eat a steak sandwich. It was incredibly unimpressive. My companion got the BLT. Prior to ordering we asked what the bacon was made of (hoping it was coconut or marinated tempeh), all we were told was "soy based". The cashier was unable to clarify further. My companion described his coleslaw as "the worst I've ever eaten" my smashed potatoes were good, but they didn't really make up for everything else. The bottom line is that one can easily expect a better lunch in their own home. I believe Eden is relatively new and all they need for success is a minor menu revision.
