Simple but good

Caphe Banh Mi is one of the only places in Old Town Alexandria that can provide vegans with some comfort food. So, if you are walking around looking for food, you should be here!

What can you order? Imperial rolls/ fried spring rolls or tamarind rolls - their fillings and sauces vary, too, soy-based for the former and peanut-based for the latter. Also, the fillings are slightly different, like vermicelli in the tamarind but not imperial, and taro in the imperial but not tamarind, but otherwise, some bean sprouts, carrots, tofu, fake meat and mint. Tasty blends that are more exciting than most rolls by far! I can't think of a better blend of ingredients anywhere else that I've tried in the DC metro area.

Other choices include a stir fried tofu dish, a vermicelli dish with tofu and veggies, a banh mi sandwich with tofu and a veg pho (labeled vegetarian, but it's vegan). The rolls are tasty and so is the pho, but not the best I've ever had. There is no vegan bubble tea, so that's a bummer. There are teas, though, and wine galore.

If in Old Town, I'd be back if hungry, though, as I know it's vegan and tasty.

Pros: Vegan items, Filling, Fair pricing
Cons: No vegan sweets, Needs more veggies

Had a very pleasant spring roll and rice with mushroom and tofu. Servers knew exactly what to recommend to a vegan. The atmosphere is pleasant, and the food is delicious.

Pros: knowledgable, delicious, fast
Cons: busy
