Respond to Review of Lettuce Love Cafe - Kindfood
Review: I feel like this review needs to be written in the context of the rave reviews that preceded it, as they were what convinced me to visit Kindfood. So let's be clear: I enjoyed my visit to Kindfood. I gave it four cows. It was a nice meal, and the people who work there are as wonderful and helpful as everyone says. Nonetheless, this was not a great eating experience. It was a good one. I enjoyed it, and would go back if I'm in the area, but it is not a Top 10 place for me, and did not meet the expectations created by the amazing reviews listed below. We had a salad, a sandwich, a smoothie, and a donut. All of them were well made and tasty. None of them stood out. The Reuben sandwich was probably the best of the lot. Still, I've had better sandwiches of this type. The salad was very basic, but the ingredients were fresh and filling. The smoothie was good too. The donut was actually disappointing. It was more like a cake with frosting than a real donut, which I was craving. Again, it was tasty - but it wasn't a real donut (see Voodoo Donuts, Portland, for the real thing). On top of it all, though this was a minor quibble, everything was really expensive, even for vegan food. The smoothie, which was quite small, was $7.50. Again, I can live with this, and understand this is a small enterprise, and I don't mind paying the money to help it thrive. Overall, a good experience. Please do visit Kindfood, as it's worth doing so, but temper your expectations and take some of the reviews listed below with a grain of salt.
