Respond to Review of Mountain Sun
by SynthVegan

Review: Mountain Sun has lots of vegetarian options and a lot of things can be made vegan. Our waiter was very friendly and ran down the entire menu with me and informed me as to what was (or could be made) vegan. I was in sandwich mode, so I opted for the hummus and veggie sandwich and had avocados added. The sandwich was huge, but it was so good that I ate the entire thing. I also noticed MS has vegan 1,000 island dressing, so I may just throw that on the sandwich too next time. There are definitely some options if your vegan, a lot more if you're vegetarian. Overall we had a good experience here and we'll definitely go back - be mindful that you'll likely have to wait during lunch or dinner, this place gets super packed!

That's funny you listed this place. I was here a few years ago and they served me beer but no food. They must have made a concerted effort bc when I was there not too long ago we just got really hungry. Although, is keeping a tub of hummus in the box a "concerted effort"? If it is limited to hummus I don't think it should be listed. good beer though

oops, I see the vegan samich...

Sorry, but I don't get your response. I realize it's been years since you've been there, but if you go to their site now there are clearly several veggie options. Like I said in my review, they have more vegetarian than vegan options so I see where you're coming from. But I'd rather go to MS than half of the other places listed in Boulder/Denver on HC (i.e. typical Thai, Indian, Chinese places or even Souper Salad).

HC should not list those other places you mention. They wouldn't do it (nor should they) anywhere else. I have seen many of the menus in person (even some listed as veg now at that point were serving fish) outside on thier walls and refuse to go, but I go there since in my mind "its listed on HC" when that has no bearing in reality. That sinking feeling... is not a happy one, I don't go in, and I rather keep a higher standard to help fellow vegans from illness. Hummus and one samich on the menu here. For that, do you know the food is divided/ isolated prep? Were all the questions answered? If not, I'd rather get a tub of hummus where I can read the label and know. Unless the menu online is different than the one in hand... Glad you had a good experience though
