Food is okay, but vegan upcharge is way overpriced
Posted on 04 / 26 / 2014
This place is known as a good local hangout that has vegan and veg options. A Big plus in a town that lacks vegan restaurant options.
The atmosphere feels like a local bar that wants to be closer to campus with a few of your grandmother's old tables thrown in for seating. We ordered a veganized pizza and a couple of vegan sandwiches (fake meat) and enjoyed the meal once it eventually arrived. The food wasn't out-of-this world, but work-a-day good. Beer and pizza good. Not "oh my dog I'm coming back every week." The service was okay, but about what we expected.
The menu mentioned an up-charge for making items vegan, which we expected. What I didn't expect was a $3.99 charge per sandwich, and $6.99 up-charge for a pizza. The pizza already cost 18.99 and making it vegan was just a matter of adding Daiya instead of mozzarella. The sandwiches were regularly $7.99, so the up charge was more than 50% on those! By the way, fries instead of chips? Add another $1.
I don't mind paying a little more for vegan. Even mediocre food, but this is just crazy. If you're going to spend $13 for a sandwich and fries and $26 for a pizza, there are better options nearby and you'll be much happier paying the bill.
Has vegan options, There's room for improvement, Good beer selection
Expensive vegan up-charge, Food was just okay, Uncomfortable seating
