Respond to Review of Eden - A Vegan Cafe
Review: I've visited Eden a few times. I have been vegan for more than ten years and have visited veggie joints in a lot of small and larger cities: Phoenix, Tucson, Norfolk, Philly, NYC, LA ... And this is my least favorite. Hugely disappointing to me, since I am fairly local. Nothing on Eden's menu cannot be made at home. All pre-made faux meat sandwiches and the like. I've tried a handful of options and they're all OK. (I don't know what the grilled cheese is, btw, nutritional yeast?) Whereas at Candle Cafe you can get a host of hot, awesome entrees that I could never replicate, like breaded seitan parm ... Or Green with their homemade hot wings? I can make a vegan turkey sanwich at home. And it ... Bringing me to my main point ... Won't cost NINE DOLLARS. The pizza is tasteless. The grilled chicken is good. The salads are good (if not very pricey) ... Even their buffalo "chicken". Yeah. Food Swings has the exact chicken but they serve it better. At Eden, no celery, no ranch sauce. Just drumsticks on a plate. No imagination. And very expensive.
