Respond to Review of The Sentient Bean
Review: I am stunned at these great reviews. We went to this place on a trip through several cities and this was by far the worst place we went. It's vegetarian but looking at the menu that appears to mean essentially "replace with cheese". We ordered a sandwich and a black bean quesadilla. We waited for 45 minutes and I finally went up to the counter and asked if they forgot us. A woman who appeared to be the owner gave me an annoyed attitude that made me wonder if I did anything wrong. They had taken our food to a different (empty!) table and as nobody ate it they took it away!! Seriously?! Anyhow, we had to wait for another 15 minutes, and instead of apologizing she just threw the plates on the table in a way that was plain rude. The food was ok, but nothing special and rather average. The side of greens should be categorized as garnish. The peppermint iced tea though was very good. So here is my recommendation: Go next door to the natural foods store Brighter Day. You can't tell from the outside but they have sandwiches and also make them to order. Much bigger vegan selection and their staff is super friendly....oh and it costs much less and you can still sit in the same tables outside.
