Respond to Review of Cafe My House
Review: Cafe My House is a reflection of the people who run it (one is a vegan), and its location (just on the fringe of central Ottawa, not in an overly vegan area). It is mostly vegan, and totally delicious. It's a nice sit down place; unpretentious, comfortable, and with a hugely varying menu. They specialize in vegan brunch, but also have some amazing entrees. Listing it as veg-friendly, while true, since it does serve some meat, almost does it a disservice. I have been to "vegetarian" restaurants so heavy on the eggs and cheese that a vegan has few options. A vegetarian restaurant that relies on dairy and eggs is no better to a vegan than a completely omnivorous restaurant. At Cafe My House, vegan is the norm, and the majority. See for yourself: http://www.veganlifeatmyhouse.com/p/menu.html I have given it four stars only because that's the maximum allowed for non-veg restaurants. I have never tried anything I didn't like. Personal favorites include the Healthy Me Breakfast, Macrobiotic Mini Burgers, and Creamy Soba Noodles. My partner's favorite is the Veg Bi-Bim-Bop.
