Respond to Review of Shangri-La Tea Room and Vegetarian Restaurant
Review: Overall impression? The food was pretty good but the atmosphere was akin to 'uppity' Boise and the Co-op. Slow service, though I think that is more in part due to the speed in the kitchen rather than our server. The overall vibe was unfriendly/unwelcoming. (Something like visiting a coffee bar for the first time and not knowing 'the lingo' while a huffy barista stares at you, waiting for your order. [I'm not saying our server was like this, I'm just trying to explain the vibe in the place.]) The vegan items are clearly marked (thank you!), there isn't much of a raw selection, and there are no vegan desserts (really?!?). Some of the prices are a little high for what you get. They are closed on Sunday; not a plus for M-F workers who run errands on Saturday and are looking for somewhere veg to eat.

raw coconut butter, maca, goji berries and dates. Served with blueberries and chopped walnuts. $6
BTW, this desert has been served at Shangri-La for years, in on the menu listed with the ingredients and is a Vegan Favorite of many of my friends. I hope your experience is better next time, be sure to read the ingredients, although they might have been Out of this Epic Vegan Desert the day that you were there! I get it every almost every time I'm there! http://www.shangri-latearoomandcafe.com/Menus/ShangriLaTeaRoomAndCafe.pdf
