Respond to Review of Eden - A Vegan Cafe
by plumerider

Review: It pains me to have to give just an average rating to Eden Cafe. Why is it so painful? Because Eden Cafe is the first and ONLY vegan restaurant in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area (where I live), and as much as I want to be 100% supportive and excited for it, the menu is ultimately disappointing. As another reviewer already mentioned, almost every item on Eden's menu contains some sort of fake meat product (and it is not fake meat that Eden is making from scratch). You will not find one meal on their menu that is not something you can make in your kitchen after a fake meat shopping spree at your local health food store (aside from maybe a soup or salad). I have been vegan for years and years, and my obsession with fake meat products is long, long over and done with, so I don't find myself interested in going to Eden ever. Soy-based fake meat products are also not the healthiest foods, usually laden with sodium and the other evils of processed foods. I beg the owner(s) of Eden to broaden their menu to include more homemade food. With all of the amazing vegan cookbooks available, steal some ideas from the hundreds of amazing vegan recipes that are out there!!! I REALLY want to have a vegan restaurant to go to! Really!

eden does specialize in mock meat/diner style/comfort foods. Our mock meat products come from distrivutors who specialize in such products and at eden we flavor, marinate, and cook the products in our own special way. Although eden's menu is now and will remain based on the mock meat foods that our customers love and want, we are also introducing other menu items that will satisfy those customers who are looking for lunch items other than our main menu items. However, I must say that this review is the exception to the norm at our cafe, as the vast majority of our cusomters LOVE our menu items!!!
