Respond to Review of Om Cafe - Traverse City
Review: Om Cafe makes me want to move to Traverse City just so I can eat these tasty delights on a weekly basis. We're talking gourmet vegetarian with a plethora of vegan options. If you see something vegetarian on the menu, just ask and they'll make it vegan if at all possible. The wine selection (all local) is outstanding. My partner and I had one of those heavenly meals where every course - the appetizer, the entree, the dessert - is mind-blowingly delicious. I cannot wait to come back. Great service. Friendly waitstaff. Very cool interior. Upscale casual. Easy street parking in front. One thing I have to comment on is the presence of the fish tank. I'm a hardcore vegan and it is NOT okay by me to purchase fish and put them in a tank for your entertainment. If you rescue the fish somehow, fine, but you don't purchase them. So I found it odd to see a fish tank at a vegetarian restaurant. That said, the fish were not overcrowded in the tank, the water was clean and they seemed to be interacting fine and actually be quite happy in there. Nonetheless, if I were Om Cafe, I would not add any more residents to the fish tank unless they are rescue fish.
