Respond to Review of CLOSED: Green Earth Cafe and Bakery
Review: My husband and I went to Green Earth for the first time with a Meetup group. Frankly, the tired and scanty appearance of the "demo" plates that display many of the entrees, actually put us off trying them, especially the pizza which I had planned to order. While some of the Meetup group seemed to really enjoy what they ordered, we were not very impressed with our bowls of noodle soup. The broth had hardly any flavor. My husband chose soba with his, and it was a bit overcooked, so falling apart. My udon held up better. However, the other ingredients were fairly uninspired. There were a few shreds of something that might have been tofu skin, and a little seaweed; but beside noodles, it was mostly cauliflower and broccoli. Broccoli was fine, but cauliflower is a bland veggie anyway, and did nothing to enhance the bland broth. The portions were just enough to eat at the one sitting, no leftovers. Dishes that cost $9 (or at most, $10) at other restaurants are usually generous enough that we bring some home. Although I like sweets, after looking at all the desserts in the case, I felt that some of them looked rather small for the price, and none of them looked appealing enough to tempt us to try any of them at the posted prices. However, it's obviously an endeavor with a sincere commitment to health and sustainability, and the staff were friendly. I do hope that, as a new restaurant, they will soon be able to adjust their recipes and menu to make it appealing enough to draw us back.
