Respond to Review of Garden Cafe on the Green
Review: I heard Woodstock had this new Vegan restaurant and was up doing some work on Friday afternoon. I stopped in around 2 when I assumed things would be quieter. Most of the tables were full and, since I was by myself, grabbed a seat at the 'bar' area. It's small and unassuming [with seating outdoors as well] but the menu was full of such diverse fare that I had a hard time deciding. A page of specials was also presented to me. I started with a berry smoothie made of frozen organic berries and coconut milk. If you don't like the soy yogurt they make a lot of their smoothies with, they'll be happy to substitute coconut milk, soy ice cream, whatever. I decided on a main entree of Indian chickpea and vegetable wrap with 'bombay sauce' which was all very tasty and mild enough for those who prefer to stay away from the hot spices often used in Indian cooking. It was definitely flavorful. The plate came with a curried apple, coconut salad [unexpectedly delicious] and a side of kale cooked with onions which was equally delicious. I feel bad for the other reviewer's negative experience as I came home talking about this place like it was Woodstock's Sublime [Ft Lauderdale's famous vegan eatery]. With so much food [$15 entree], I could only eat half my wrap and couldn't even consider dessert. They had vegan pies listed as well as a raw gelato that I will definitely have to sample next go-round. Total bill was about $22. Most sandwiches and lighter lunch-fare was listed at only around $9.
