I love a trip to Cushman for the chance to sit comfortably and enjoy the ambiance and hot drinks. There is colorful interesting artwork around the cafe space, and the seating area offers plenty of space to hang out.
I often have been just for drinks, and have thoroughly enjoyed the coffee, mochas, chai and teas. The staff have always been knowledgeable about items that are and are not vegan, and have made drink recommendations.
I have eaten Cushman's food several times in the past, and as I recall it was good. The menu items always look wholesome, though vegan choices do not abound. I still think Cushman is worth a try for the experience and enjoyment of the space. If you know ahead of time you will only have a few vegan food choices, and ample drink choices, you will not be disappointed.Pros: great atmosphere, great hot drinks, locally owned, socially consious
Cons: location is not always convenient, few vegan food options
