Fresh, Organic, Easy to be a Vegan Here..

4 Posted on 08 / 09 / 2013

Great for fresh, organic options. I love their smoothies, and there are about 4 different milk varieties to choose from (I think soy, coconut, hemp, almond) for any smoothie or coffee drink. The avocado smoothie is out of this world rich and sinful (tastes kind of like a vanilla milkshake). They put honey in most of their smoothies automatically, so just be sure to have them leave it our or switch to agave if you don't do honey. Everyone there has always been really friendly and accommodating to any requests.

They have a variety of teas and coffee drinks. I love that they put out soy milk with their self-serve creamers so you don't have to go up to the counter to request a special non-dairy milk for your normal coffee.

There could be more veg options, but you really can't complain too much since they actually have veg options. The tofu wrap was a bit bland; it's really just a big block of unflavored tofu. The black bean wrap is yummy though, and I've had a good grilled veggie sandwich there too. One thing I don't really understand though is why the sandwiches with just veggies cost about the same as sandwiches with veggies + meat. The salads are fantastic!!

Although I haven't tried it, they have a tofu scramble wrap on their breakfast menu. Before going vegan, breakfast was my favorite meal to go out for (I'm not a fan of cooking in the morning). As many of us know, vegan breakfast options when you go out are weak. I give big points for having vegan breakfast options. (tofu scramble, smoothies, coffee drinks with any vegan milk you want, etc.)

Bottom line - this place is original, locally owned, organic, fresh, and friendly. Just be aware of coming here on a weekday between 12-2; they're very popular and seating is limited. Perhaps try hummus corner(it's really close by) instead during that time frame.

Pros: Non-dairy and veg options, Organic veggies, and big fresh salads, Originality
Cons: can get pricey, parking/seating is tough at lunch rush, tofu is bland

First time ever

4 Posted on 03 / 20 / 2013

I got an avocado tofu wrap for the first time ever at TFA, and needless to say it was delicious. It pained my mom to lend me the eleven dollars to buy the wrap and a water bottle, but it was so worth it. Would recommend.

Pros: The hummus is amazing., It has avocados. , The blue corn chips oh man.
Cons: Semi-reasonable prices, A bit too much tofu

Good Idea, little improvement

We've been going to the FA since they opened. And while we do like going, we wish that they would actually consider the vegetarians that flocked to the place in the first place. With dozens of items on the menu for meat eaters, there are only a few for vegetarians and vegans. A lunch place, the FA is packed with a small seating area and often people lined up to the door. They will however custom your order to make it veggie if you ask. If you have extra time, extra cash, and are willing to take it and go.. the FA is a pretty good option in Owings Mills.

Pros: healthy cuisine, nice portion sizes, green
Cons: terrible parking, hard to find, small seating area and too busy at lunch

Good wraps, limited choices

This place makes a few excellent wraps suitable for vegans. Many of the other choices have chicken or cheese, but try the tofu and avocado wrap for a tasty treat.

Pros: great tofu, avocados on everything!
Cons: pricey, limited choices

Good food. Several vegetarian options but not that many vegan options. For vegetarians, the black bean burger wrap is a must. For vegans, give the grilled tofu & avocado wrap a try, it's pretty tasty. Be sure to have a little extra cash to spend, this place tends to be a little pricey. Be sure to have some extra time, too. The service can be a little slow.

Pros: good food
Cons: pricey, not many vegan options
