Respond to Review of Longbranch Coffeehouse

Review: Pebble [rock] in my food... The fact that happened has turned me off to this place (I really give this place 2.5 cows) -- but hey, this is the only options for the Vegans/Vegetarians down there. Below is my pre-pebble review however: Since 01.01.08, all of Illinois establishments have gone smoke free; therefore, the smoking issue has been rectified here. I think this place is a cute artsy looking coffee place [and restaurant]. They had quite a few Vegan options; however, I was there at 5PM and they will not serve breakfast items after 4PM. How disappointing, because all four of us at the table wanted something off of the breakfast menu and my friend who has Celiac Disease [allergic to gluten] had to resort to chips and salsa. I ordered the Vegan calzone and I was very impressed, there wasn't Vegan cheese in it, but it was still delicious. Also, everyone liked what they got [someone got a veggie wrap with hummus].

Often times in dried beans and grains there are small pebbles that don't get sorted out in the factory and can be overlooked when they are being cooked. So even though it is alarming when you find a pebble in your food, at least take comfort in the fact that they are probably cooking their own beans and grains instead of using salt and preservative laden canned foods.
