As good as it gets!!

As I always say, I usually like to visit a place a few times before I write my review, and I have been many times (happy hour, dinner, even lunch). What a fun little find the Plum Bistro is!!
I bought a groupon for burgers and beers for two (this is how I discovered Plum Bistro), but we got there too early to use them, so we just purchased items off the happy hour menu (which ends up being quite the deal, you'll save mucho dinero). We ordered Buffalo seitan wings (holy expletive!! AMAZING!), Jamaican sliders, frites w chipotle aioli, Mac & Yease. Seriously they were all amazing.
The mac and yease has got to be one of the best mac and cheeses I've ever had, and it's vegan. Rich and flavorful with just a hint of spice. Really tasty. The Buffalo seitan wings were SO GOOD (and I can assure you, I don't even usually like this kind of food), they were spicy as hell, but the dipping sauce (which is WAY better than ranch, I usually don't even like ranch!) was cooling enough that you just went back for more. The sliders were amazing (try the Jamaican Jerk tofu), but the caramelized onions and rich sauce made us clear our plates. Overall, this experience was A+ -- I think I said several times, that my taste buds were doing cart wheels. FLAVOR OVERLOAD was the feeling I left with, thinking, if all vegan food was like this, the entire world would be vegan.
Hubby had a beer, they have a nice list of organic local brews, and I had a lemonade cocktail special, which was super tasty -- not sweet at all -- and rimmed with sugar and pepper flakes. I was so inspired, I went home and tried to reproduce it. I am a picky drinker, and I was pretty damn impressed with this cocktail.
Atmosphere was good, not super comfy (small tables, small chairs, somewhat tight space) but still super cute, the restrooms are downstairs and are very clean. Service was great, food was quick and our server was very sweet. She gave us her recommendations, and I'm glad we tried them.
Definitely will visit Plum Bistro again soon, what a GREAT find!! I can imagine this place gets busy, as its a small venue, so get there early or call to make sure there's space before you head over.
