Don't bother if you're vegan

Posted on 09 / 05 / 2011

This place might be vegetarian-friendly but not so much for vegans. My partner and I came here for dinner and the vegetarian entree special they had that evening had dairy, which made the pad Thai with tofu off the regular menu the only option. The price tag ($16) was hefty for what it was, and the taste was rather flat. Even the salads were not vegan because all the dressings contained eggs.

The decor was funky and all, and lacto-ovo vegetarians would probably enjoy the foods too, but as far as vegans are concerned I would not recommend this place.

Pros: decor
Cons: very limited vegan options, pricey

A fun and delicious oasis in Newport

Posted on 05 / 05 / 2011

We have been going to Salvation Cafe since it first opened. It has a fun vibe with retro interior decorating (think vintage sit-down hair-dryer helmets turned into lighting fixtures). They have a great tiki bar and an outdoor dining area -- not to mention delicious food. Salvation always has at least one vegetarian option on the menu that is either straight-up vegan or that can be easily veganized. The entrees are pricey, but this is a wonderful place for a fun dinner out with friends or for a date night. The crispy spinach side dish is amazing: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. You will want to eat giant bowls of it! Keep you eyes peeled for off-season specials. They frequently offer an entree + beer/wine combination in the wintertime that is a steal.

Pros: great food, outdoor seating available, tiki bar
Cons: entrees a bit pricey
