Pretty satisfied with my experience there
Posted on 12 / 29 / 2013
I was traveling to Asbury Park for a concert with my boyfriend, and while there are several restaurants in the area with vegan options we chose this one since he's very into pizza.
Food: 8. We split a half size of the vegan chicken parm sandwich, which was impressive big for a half size! The whole size must be HUGE! We also split personal size a vegan pizza. I don't remember the name of it, but it was the first one listed on the menu and was the closest to a plain cheese pizza. Both items were pretty tasty, but I preferred the sandwich. I wasn't a big fan of the cheese used, which I noticed more on the pizza than on the sandwich... it didn't taste or look like Daiya or Teese to me, so not sure which brand it is... but it did look more like dairy cheese than most vegan cheeses I've had. All in all, the food was pretty satisfying. My only complaint in this area is the heavy focus on mock meats and cheeses.
Price: 8. I'd say it's average prices for vegan sandwiches and pizzas, ranging around $8-12 per person depending on what you get. Pretty reasonable, I think.
Atmosphere: 7. There are two rooms... one that is more casual/take out oriented, and one that is a bit more of an intimate and cozy dining room. We opted for the latter, and it was cozy (despite a loud group in there at the time, which isn't the restaurant's fault, of course). Both rooms are tiny overall, though, and it's kind of weird that they are extremely separate.
Staff: 8. Rather friendly and helpful.
The only downside I can think of offhand is it seems to be metered/street parking in the area.
Extensive vegan menu, Tasty, Reasonable prices
Too focused on mock meats and cheeses, Street/tricky parking, Small rooms
