Great soups & sandwiches

Posted on 03 / 21 / 2015

I love their vegan BLTs (made with Smart Bacon) and tomato soup! It is a nice place to hide away from the world and enjoy your lunch in peace or with a friend or two. Service is friendly and the concept is unique. They usually have one or two vegan cookie options as well (although I wish they would be less raisin/oatmeal combos and more chocolate chip variety). This is a favorite spot when I just want to unwind and have a classic American lunch.

Pros: Tucked away in a book store, Yummy comfort food, Reasonable prices (accepts credit cards)
Cons: Needs more vegan cookie options

A Nice Option.

I had a veggie BLT from Autumn Leaves one day while I was shopping down at the Commons. It's nothing you couldn't put together yourself, but it was made well and tasted great. The staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable. If you're looking for a quiet place to relax, read and grab some light fare, this is a great option.

Pros: Good Food, friendly staff, Nice Atmosphere

Get the Apple Meow

Posted on 05 / 18 / 2010

It takes a long time to make the Apple Meow but it's worth the wait. It involves soy milk and apple cider and it's just really delicious. They also have some very tasty vegan sandwiches.

There are fun comics and other books to look at while you're waiting, and a great bulletin board on the staircase. Free (limited) wifi is available too.

Pros: good place to meet people, delicious food, awesome location
Cons: books- watch out for greasy fingerprints, can be noisy

Vegan/Vegetarian Cafe

Posted on 05 / 26 / 2009

A great place to grab a snack or get a beverage and study/hang out. A good selection of vegan and vegetarian sandwiches and drinks. They even have paninis and breakfast sandwiches as well as smoothies, coffee drinks, Italian sodas, and milk shakes.
Lots of the products are organic and they make en effort to be environmentally friendly.

Pros: Healthy cuisine, Good value, Lots of beverage choices
Cons: not a huge selection of sandwiches, upstairs in a book store, hard to find, small cafe
