Not impressed

If you are vegetarian, you may like this place. if you are vegan, however, maybe not so much. Although the website features sample menus with vegan sections, when we visited we found the staff did not have a clear sense of the meaning of the word vegan. Three menu items were marked with asterisks indicating vegetarian or vegan. We asked if any were vegan, and were told that all three were, even though one was made with egg noodles, and another was made with buffalo mozzarella! It was even suggested that the egg noodles were made with "powdered egg whites," making them vegan??? Powdered eggs are still eggs. There was a vegan chili on the menu, which was tasty and had no obvious animal ingredients, but after our experience with other dishes on the menu, I cannot help but wonder if it really was vegan. I don't think we will be back.

Pros: Offers vegetarian options, Friendly wait staff
Cons: Staff not clear on meaning of "vegan", Menu very different from online samples
