Respond to Review of CLOSED: Long Beach Vegan Eatery
by Andrealv

Review: It's nice to have another vegan option in LB, but LBVE falls short of providing great vegan options for those familiar with some of the great vegan/vegetarian options out there. For meat eaters trying vegan food for first time, it's pricey but decent. However, for anyone who has been to Native Foods, Veggie Grill, Real Food Daily or one of the many other vegan friendly establishments, it's disappointing. At nearly $15 for a sandwich and side, it's also very expensive for the quality and quantity provided, considering this is a fast-food counter-order type place. I'd love to see them succeed; maybe making homemade menu items more obvious and considering adding sides to their $9-$10 sandwiches. Better training so that staff knows what is included and menu items are prepared and served completely (I know I'm not the only one who has received my order missing something). A vegan restaurant is awesome, but some improvements need to be made here to live up to the standards other similar vegan restaurants have established. Especially to get carnivores to open their minds to the possibility of compassionate yet delicious dining. I would encourage LBVE to ask their diners how they like their food and ask for suggestions. Not everyone is comfortable 'complaining' or providing suggestions to restaurant workers who may or may not be open to them. I know they've gotten some bad press lately, so I encourage them to positively seek feedback from their customers on a daily basis and use that to improve and make this place into the awesome spot I know exists in the owners' hearts!
