Couple of great whole food vegan items on menu

Posted on 06 / 17 / 2012

We tried the Vegan Napoleon and Thai Vegetables with Green Curry Sauce, followed by the Vegan Chocolate Mouse. All outstanding/ inspiring and delicious!!! We may be back the next we are in Durham!
The Thai Veggies probably isn't Vegan though....The menu did not say it was and I suspect they used fish sauce in the curry. The curry is more of a soup/ stew and it is served in a bowl due to the liquid.
The Napoleon is a stack of grilled/carmelized sweet potato, apple on a bed of bok choi with a balsamic/ blackberry reduction and walnuts. It is incredible. Our only criticism is to add much more bok choi to dial down the sweetness of the dish and add a more savory element.
The dessert, the chocolate mouse, is a nice finish and the flavors dance in your mouth....chocolate, raspberry, coconut....
Overall, the atmosphere was pretty good. A bit cramped as tables are close enough to hear other parties and the hostess has to walk you behind the coffee bar through the service aisle to seat you in the dining room....kind of an odd layout. Of course this is mainly a coffee place with desserts in a case up front that look amazing so we felt lucky to have a dining room and some vegan/ vegetarian options that were so delicious!

Pros: Inspired menu, Healthy options, Friendly staff/ good service
Cons: Floor plan / table layout

I had the house salad, which was great: a wide variety of salad vegetables, all tasting really fresh, with a very light salad dressing. Delicious.
