Expensive, but tasty
Posted on 08 / 23 / 2008
Tao is a wonderful, cozy little corner joint with the feel of an old-time diner. The staff is on a first-name basis with most of the customers and the food is amply vegan. The wait for the food can be long, but that's only because each dish is lovingly prepared and hand-made; no short-cuts here. Try their delicious multigrain waffle or their simple, macrobiotic rice plates (which pack more of a kick than you might guess). The food is extremely healthy, fresh and nicely prepared. They also feature at least one or two innovative vegan desserts. Tao also has a large selection of health food and body-care items, as well as a small book section, in case you need more than just food.
UPDATE: Tao, while still tasty and good, has increased its prices considerably, as well as reducing its portion sizes. So, you pay more, but get less food. I still love the food here---and they just added delicious vegan milkshakes (12 oz. for $7??)---but I'll be cutting back now that they're so expensive!
Fresh, Healthy/Tasty, Atmosphere
