Respond to Review of Veggie Galaxy
Review: This place is great. I went four times in five days in town (honestly, though, Cambridge is pretty crappy for vegan food, which is part of why I came here so often.) A busy, crowded place with a wait during peak hours. As others have noted, it's diner food, but delicious. I definitely wish they were 100% vegan, but in Cambridge, beggars can't be choosers. And the bakery itself is 100% vegan if you're hyper strict about your veganism, you'd probably need to worry a bit about cross-contamination of cooking and prep surfaces (but this is true of many restaurants I've been to and worked in.) The breakfast options for vegans are out of this world: tofu omlettes, tofu eggs, tons of creative toppings, house-made vegan cheeze, housemade seitan chorizo, house pickled onions, and on, and on. We both loved the stuffed french toast. Honestly, I loved every single thing I had in four meals, and cleaned my plate each time. Every time I asked if something is vegan or can easily be made vegan, it was. already vegan, even things which sounds like they aren't (think aioli.) Everything on the menu is, or can be made, vegan, without the usual substitute-out-the-richness-and-flavor problem at non veg* restaurants. I didn't find any of my food in four meals to be excessively greasy, but c'mon, you're going to a place that expressly holds itself out as a diner: it's not health food. Prices are totally reasonable for Cambridge, and the Central Square area. The employees to a one were pleasant and great. The kitchen crew working in the wide open kitchen are hustling and hauling ass all the time: the counter is a great place to sit for some serious cooking action! I'll definitely go back, again and again!
