Review: I went to The Coup in Fall 2007, for a late(ish) lunch. The Coup is the type of place where middle aged women in track suits will sit there chatting for forty minutes after they've finished their meal, even though they know you're waiting for a table (and the staff don't do anything to hint that they should leave). In other words, it doesn't have that friendly, "we're in this together" vibe that a lot of vegetarian places have. I had "El Taco" and was totally disappointed. I couldn't see ANY evidence of avocado or sweet beans. It was like a dry tortilla stuffed full of dry quinoa. Dry, dry, dry. Boring, boring, boring. The Soup of the Day was a bit better, I believe it was a curried yam and lentil. I had hoped The Coup would be like Rebar (in Victoria, BC), but instead it was dull, uninspired and just plain bad. Skip it.
