The Not-So-Friendly Toast
Posted on 08 / 03 / 2014
The friendly toast is actually pretty unfriendly. I stopped in last week to try their breakfast, but the employees were rather rude. I attributed their rudeness to the fact that the place was really busy and they were probably just under a lot of pressure. BUT after actually dining there, I realized that the employees are rude on an everyday basis. I had asked our waitress if she could make the falafel plate vegan, she said yes. She then asked me what side I wanted, so I asked for sweet potato fries. She advised me that the sweet potato fries were not vegan, because all food is thrown into the same fryer. When I asked her if that meant, then, that the falafel was, in fact, not vegan, she got all huffy and said that it depends on how "hard-core" vegan you are. And then proceeded to speak to me in a demeaning tone. I'm sorry, but there's either "vegan" or "not-vegan," nothing else! She basically pushed us out the door: our plates were taken away the second we took our last bite. The ambiance of the place was also pretty terrible - really trashy decorations and the music was so loud that you couldn't even hear what the person next to you was saying. I WILL NOT be dining here again, and would advise anyone who is vegan (or simply anyone who wants to avoid unwanted rudeness) to steer clear of this establishment!

Good tahini dressing
Rude wait staff, confused by what it means to be vegan, bad ambiance
