Respond to Review of CLOSED: Quiet Storm
by PennsyltuckyVeggie

Review: Quiet Storm generally has a diner feel to it with a hodge podge, artsy, retro twist. The staff are friendly, accurate and know their vast menu backward. The first time we visited we couldn't resist ordering the Cheesy Snake Sandwich and a cup of the Tomato Florentine Soup. The vegan pimento cheesy spread was nice and that is where I had the pickled onions last and couldn't get them out of my head! The portions are generous and prices are rock bottom for some of the fastest veggie food I have ever had served to me. Kids are welcome and readily accommodated with high chairs and menu choices. The all vegetarian menu has icons to choose from, v= vegan and gf = gluten free. Ask for the password and you can hook up to some free Wi-Fi as you try some of their awesome coffee concoctions listed on the big board over the counter. On our second visit we purposely went hungry and ordered a variety of good foods. We starting with the Chilled Orange Soup. I don't know what I was expecting, maybe something with a weird orange juice concentrate flavor but this summery chilled soup was a delight! The fresh orange flavor brightened up the carrot puré just enough to keep us dipping our spoons in as we smacked our lips enjoying the subtle flavors. The little bit of salt and oil suggested a light vegetable broth but the flavors were so well balanced! We also split a Graham St. Tofu Sandwich on wheat with Spicy Mayo and a short order of the Buffalo Style Tofu Tenders with Vegan Ranch (both pictured above in slideshow). The acidic scent of spicy Buffalo Style sauce assaulted my nose as the Tofu Tenders made me start to lick my lips. The zippy sauce coated 3 super firm planks of tofu that were seasoned in a way I was glad for the ranch dip and cool veggies to balance it out. Take note that the tenders are oven "fried." The mini portion was just right for us to split as a second appetizer. The Graham St Tofu is Quiet Storm's signature sandwich, named for the side street upon which we have always found free parking. Everything came together; from the pickled onions that teased me into making them to the wonderfully thyme seasoned roasted tofu cutlets and the fresh tomato and greens, they all danced on a pleasing wheat bread and dressed themselves in the spicy mayo. A side of corn chips and well balanced salsa made this enough of a meal by itself and we had a hard time finding room in our happy bellies to try it all! Full review here:
