Cool, worth checking out, not amazing

We just went here for lunch. My companion had "the best veggie burger in montreal" and received an ok, dry, lentil based burger. I had a lentil-loaf which seemed to be the same stuff as the burger but mine was coated in a delicious spicy tomato sauce. Of the two of us, I definitely lucked out.
Now check it out, they have five or six great looking salads and when you get a meal, you get a salad on the side. *But you don't get to choose it!* That's right, we asked for a specific one and they just chose another for us. When we asked why, they said "oh, normally you just get a random salad". I guess that is fine but I really felt like veggies and not like boiled kamut. My friend got beet salad which is great, but some people don't like it. I don't know, do they give you the cheapest ones? It just seems weird.
I don't know where the "outdoor seating" was, I didn't see any but we had a nice little table inside. I would have tried out some of the drinks they have in the big cooler or one of the delicious looking desserts but they had no prices on them and there was no indication if they were vegan or not. I wasn't hungry enough to hassle with asking prices and ingredients for everything.
Overall, I think it's a cool little place, the lentil loaf was great and some of the salads look good - too bad I couldn't try any of those, guess you have to be lucky. I would skip on the veggie burger unless you like yours dry and virtually toppingless.
They should really price and label their things, and allow their customers to choose their food.
Neat, Lentil Loaf
Can't choose salad
