Respond to Review of CLOSED: Veggie Heaven
Review: I always ignore reviews where people say the staff was rude and the place was dirty. Usually that means it's a little hippy coffee shop where I will feel at home. I don't mind a little dirt and slow service in those places. In the case of Veggie Heaven, all the reviewers that said this place was dirty and the staff was rude were right on the money. It isn't dusty, it's unsanitary and disgusting! The menu had chunks of old food and slime on every page and something that looked like snot all over the cover. There were chunks of old food stuck to the window by my table and the table and chairs were gross. The owners had piles of personal crap piled all over the floor in the corner- it was really the most poorly kept place I've ever eaten in the US. I had to wash my hands after using the menu and the bathroom nearly made me wretch. But I stuck it out and ate the food- which arrived about 2 minutes after the hostile waitress took my order. And the food..... not bad. I wish I could say it was gross because I think the place is awful, but it wasn't that bad. I had the spicy soybean tofu and an eggroll. In a town without any good vegan places, I would probably go back because they have something I will eat. In a town like Austin where there are dozens of places with vegan food, there isn't a chance in hell I would go back to Veggie Heaven and endure their ridiculously rude staff and their "holy shit- does texas not inspect restaurants" cleanliness.
