Respond to Review of CLOSED: Stephanie's Bakery
Review: this place is so good. the waitresses are great, the strudel is great, and the pizza is amazing. if you are vegan and you miss going out for pizza (and, hey, what vegan doesn't, deep down?), stephanie's is unbelievable. it doesn't taste like a replica of non-vegan pizza, but has a texture and taste to itself. the crust is crisp and delicious. the soy cheese generally starts out a little runny and will take more time to cool down and solidify than it will take for you to eat it. not really a problem, and it congeals the perfect amount in the fridge if you have leftovers (something which has rarely happened to me). the biggest problem is that stephanie's runs totally irregular hours. they change their schedule so often that there have been three or four times when i've attempted to go and found them closed when they were scheduled to be open, including once on my birthday -- major bummer. this is partially because they seem to change hours so frequently. at one point they had one schedule on their menu, another on their door, and another on their website. i don't know if this has changed since i haven't lived in san diego for any length of time for over a year and a half, but it was a pretty serious problem, though if it's closed you can head over to ob co-op, which has an excellent and dirt cheap deli. despite this problem, stephanie's is so good that i am willing to forgive it entirely. oh yeah, and they also offer cow's cheese on the pizza, even though everything else is vegan and their vegan cheese has pleased everyone i've ever eaten there with. what's up with that?
