No better word than awesome.

Passing through Boise on the way home from a family vacation and happened to find MFT. I was a little skeptical at first when we pulled up to a Motel/Restaurant. As we pulled up I told my wife that there was no chance this place was Vegan or even knew what it was. After getting seated, viewing the menu, and speaking to our waitress (also owner and amazing desert maker) I no longer doubted that this would be an awesome experience.

From the service to the food everything was perfect. Pricing was the best I've ever seen in a Vegan restaurant. The portions were perfect but given that this was the first truly Vegan restaurant prepared food we'd had in two weeks we considered ordering everything on the menu just to take with us. Once we completed the difficult process of picking from several Vegan entrees on the menu I choose the Vegaloaf and my wife had something different (I can't remember the name). Both entrees had amazing flavor and were perfectly filling. The kids had shared sides of the Vegan mac 'n cheese and country beans which they enjoyed and I may have eaten some while they weren't paying attention. After the recommendation of our waitress we ordered the lemon bar and chocolate cake for desert which she had prepared. This is the first time I'd ever had a lemon bar since becoming vegan and I have to say it was possibly the best desert I've ever had the pleasure of consuming.

Needless to say next time we find ourselves in Boise we will be back. This is one of the places that not just deserves but has earned 5 cow/stars in my book.

Pros: Perfect portions, Low prices, Awesome staff

Not your local Hippie/Trendy/etc veg-eatery

If you're a 'true' Vegan you wouldn't eat here as they serve meat. I was the only 'mostly vegetarian' (fishY) in the place. Everyone else was satisfying their carnivorous desires. Maybe 25% of the place was full for a mid-week 6pm dinner.

Waitress was very gracious and served me my beer from next-door - they just add it to the final bill.

Had the Veggie Loaf vegan sandwich- tempeh, potato salad, choc/rasp sauce (does NOT taste like either 2me, but did taste great), on Hawaiian bread (not sure if bread was Vegan?).

Side of spicy coleslaw (mild spicy and I'm a lightweight) and baked beans - both sides Vegan. Yum x2.

Plus a Porter from the tap next door -

Pros: Staff, Entree, Sides
Cons: Location, Location, Location

Great Option for Boise Vegans!

4 Posted on 03 / 28 / 2014

I went here for lunch with a friend today and this place was delicious - and not to mention super cheap! With drinks, sandwiches, (I could only eat half of mine), sides and a dessert to split, the entire bill was only $21. I had the special, the 'vegaloaf' which was a smoked tempeh sandwich with spicy chocolate raspberry BBQ sauce, topped with homemade vegan potato salad - and it was fantastic. There are great rotating specials for both vegans and meat- eaters and dessert specials too. Our waitress was one of the owners and she was great fun to chat with. Highly recommended!!

Pros: Great option to eat out with non-vegs, Unique selection/rotating specials, Inexpensive
Cons: Signage is tough to see from the road

Delicious!

Unexpectedly for a BBQ place in Boise, their selection (~10 sides/entrees) of vegan food was good & delicious. The wait staff was knowledgeable, flexible & helpful.

Loved It!

4 Posted on 03 / 14 / 2014

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this place and totally loved it. I had the smoked tempeh, mac & cheese, & country beans and he had the jerk squash & cole slaw. Everything was fantastic!

I would have to say my favorite part was talking to the co-owner who was our waitress. She was so sweet and made dinner all the more pleasurable. I can't wait to go back to Boise and eat here again.

Side note: I can't pick 5 out of 5 stars since the menu isn't completely vegerarian but that's what I would rate it.

Pros: Low Prices, Lots Of Veg Options, Great Service
Cons: Can Be Easy To Miss

Vegan comfort food

4 Posted on 03 / 06 / 2014

Delicious. I have earen there 4 times for lunch and have not been disappointed. Its nice that my not vegan husband and I (a vegan) can both have a meal with plenty of options. I'd give it 5 cows, if I could, but I cannot because its not an all vegetarian restaurant.

Pros: Good portion sizes., Kid & adult options.
Cons: Don't go if you are offended by meat.

Pretty good

3 Posted on 02 / 18 / 2014

There are two vegan sandwiches on the menu. One was a BBQ tempeh, which was pretty spicy, and the second was a squash sandwich, which was sweet in a good way. The sandwiches were small, and the price was $6 per sandwich. The location was also difficult to find. Turn into the Roadway Inn parking lot, like you are going to the hotel, and you should see it there.

Pros: good food
Cons: tough to find, price
