My wife and another couple decided to go to brunch here one Sunday morning in January 2011. We called the night before to make sure there would be vegan options. They confirmed, no problem, plenty of vegan options for everyone.
We got there at 10 AM to find the place empty. We sit down and it took 10 minutes before we even saw a menu. Another couple sat down near us and were served before we even saw a menu. While speaking with the other couple, we overheard that their vegan options were sold out except for the pizza. While the other couple thought about what to do, the waitress came over to us and gave us our menus. She explained the same to us, that only vegan pizzas were available. The explanation was that they had a huge crowd that morning that ate up all the vegan options. I find this a little hard to believe considering how empty it was at 10 AM on a 20 degree Sunday morning.
The waitress explained that although there were no more vegan options that the chef was "willing to work with us". When we asked what that meant, she rambled on something about muffins and toast. Yum!
Needless to say, we stood up and left, as did the other couple. We went to One World Cafe, where oddly enough, we bumped into the other couple that left as well.
I've read a lot of negative reviews about this place and am not sure how this place stays open, especially considering what the rent must be on prime Inner Harbor real estate. My guess is that this place is gone by end of 2011.
My warning is that just because you call and they confirm that they will have vegan options, doesn't necessarily make it true. Beware!
No vegan options, Smelled like cleaning supplies
