When my mom was visiting recently, we made the trip to Federal Way to check out Marlene's. My mom, an omni, got a vegetable pot pie that she liked, though there were too many mushrooms for her own personal taste. I got a sandwich with wheat bread, blackened tofu, soy cheese (I think it was Follow Your Heart Mozzerella Style), avocado, carrots, lettuce, and cucumber, then grilled. It was honestly the best sandwich I've ever had. I also bought a bag of potato chips, which were stale. We both got smoothies, banana mango, though I ordered mine with an extra protein boost.
There's also a variety of treats and baked goods - vegan chocolate pie, bars, etc. I got a peanut butter crunchy bar, which only had 7 ingredients and was soo tasty.
There's an area next to the deli that has all natural cosmetics and the like. I asked an employee if they had any vegan mascara, and unfortunately they didn't :( They did have vegan liquid eyeliner though.Pros: Amazing, Soy cheese, Desserts
Cons: Not in Tacoma
