Review: STOPPED BY ON A TUESDAY LATE MORNING FOR BREAKFAST. HAD HEARD THEY HAD GREAT BREAKFASTS, AND BETTER YET HAD SOME VEGAN OPTIONS. MY HUSBAND THE OMNIVORE HAD A GREAT MEAL. ME THE VEGAN , NOT SO MUCH. AFTER TELLING MY WAITER THAT I WOULD BE ORDERING VEGAN, I ASKED IF THEY HAD EARTH BALANCE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT FOR THE TOAST, HE STARED AT ME AND I NEW HE HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT. HE THEN SAID, "OH YOU DON'T WANT BUTTER?" NORMALLY THIS WOULD NOT BUG ME BUT WHEN I FIND YOU ON HAPPY COW, I EXPECT THAT YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT "VEGAN" IS. I ORDERED THE TOFU SCRAMBLE AND THERE WAS A CHUNK OF SAUSAGE OR TWO IN IT. IT REALLY DOES NOT TAKE MUCH TO CLEAN A GRILL BETWEEN ORDERS. WHAT THAT TOLD ME IS THAT THEY DON'T EVEN WIPE IT OFF IF FIXING SOMETHING VEGAN AFTER PUTTING MEAT ON THE GRILL, YUCK! THEN INSTEAD OF GIVING ME A NEW PLATE (IT CAME WITH HASH BROWNS) THEY JUST BROUGHT ME A PLATE OF TOFU SCRAMBLE AND LEFT ME WITH THE OLD ONE WITH THE HASH BROWNS. NOT COOL IN MY OPINION. MY MEAL WAS DRY AND LACKED ANY IMAGINATION, AND NOT MUCH FLAVOR. TO SUM IT UP, IF YOU ARE A OMNIVORE THIS IS A GOOD PLACE TO EAT, IF YOU ARE VEGAN FORGET ABOUT IT. I WILL NOT RETURN. :(

Yikes. I hope you're experiencing greater peace these days. It isn't fair to get angry at someone who didn't recognize the name of a particular brand of dairy-free buttery-spread; I blinked a couple times blankly at the first person who asked me if I wanted "dye-uh" on my pizza... I think my lips were probably poised in a "W"-sound face as I tried to fathom what they were talking about. I've been vegan 10 years... but that doesn't mean I inherently (through *VEGAN MAGIC*) know some engineered cheese-substitute brand-name, I'd never heard of Daiya. Also, I'm a professional computer technician and will gleefully help you locate and repair your Caps Lock key for a small fee. PM me.
