Review: Our GPS needed to be updated and took us to the restaurant's former location across town. Called & asked the girl who answered the phone how far away the new location was (explaining that we were vacationing) and she said that she wasn't sure - not too far - then hung up. We decided to order food first and get dessert and coffee to take back to the hotel since it took us so long to actually get there. I ordered a buffalo chicken ranch wrap and DH ordered a club sandwich. There were no seats available aside from a lone wobbly bar stool against the window because all of the benches and chairs were occupied by college students hanging out and basically taking up space. By this time, DD needed a diaper change, so I waited in line patiently for the single unisex restroom to become available. NO CHANGING TABLE. Our car was parked several blocks away on the third level of a parking garage, so we decided to wait for our food to arrive and just eat in the car.Just as our food made its grand entry (20 mins or so after ordering), one of the 'hipsters' decided to move and we snagged the table. The waitress sprayed down the table (and my daughter [without apologizing]) with disinfecting spray and took our drinks and dumped them out when she cleared the table. The food-pathetic. My wrap had four or five bits of gardein chicken and tons of mayo (which I hate and specifically requested to leave off), loaded wih dried dill that was attempting to impersonate ranch dressing, and no buffalo taste to speak of. The wilted romaine lettuce (whole leaves) took up most of the $9 wrap. DH's was no better - the tempeh bacon was quite good, but the 'meat' was just tofurkey slices. The tomatoes were not even close to being red. The worst part, was the multi-grain bread. It was so dry that you could choke on it. How can a bakery serve stale bread? We ordered four cupcakes, a cup of softserve, an individual peanut butter pie, and a soy latte. The soft serve had a strange chemically aftertaste, the cupcakes were stale, greasy, and flavorless. It reminded me of the birthday cakes my grandmother orders from the supermarket chain in town.The only saving grace of the experience was the peanut butter pie and the latte. The pie was a generous mound of peanut butter filling, topped with chocolate ganache and a chocolate cookie crust. It was similar to the Sm'love Pie from V-Con, but not quite as good. The latte was perfectly brewed and cleverly presented.
