Not for Lacto-Vegetarians or Vegans.... :(
Posted on 12 / 17 / 2011
I was a customer of the original Silence-Heart-Nest back in 1986, back when they were located in the U-District. Sadly, they have changed, and not for the better.
Back then, there were many options for vegans and lacto vegetarians. Yet today, there are - I believe - only two menu items that are available for vegans. I came for brunch/lunch and ended up with the dal soup (delicious!) and bread. Sadly, Silence-Heart-Nest has chosen NOT to offer a vegetarian/vegan breakfast scramble. And, the "veggie" burger contains eggs. The wait staff was patient with my ingredient-based questions, yet unsympathetic. I got the sense they were "meditating" through my list of questions.
Sadly, I won't be going back to this restaurant I had once loved.
nice vibes, healthy food
almost no vegan offerings, almost no pure-veg (non-egg) options, not open to changing the menu
