Tasty Vegan Soul Food
Posted on 08 / 30 / 2015
This place is pretty satisfying if you only want vegan food. It's far away from the popular touristy places, so, that makes parking really easy!
The food is simple and to the point - a few smoothie options, some juices and a handful of desserts like pineapple upside down cake or cheesecake. They also sell some vegan popcorn. The cold display case holds the salads and sides for the day, like potato salad, live kale salad, cucumber and tomato salad, sesame spinach, pasta salad, and carrot "tuna."
If you look towards the back, you'll see them creating your food. There is seating by the window and a few tables scattered around, so it isn't just a take-out place. It has a similar vibe to other vegan soul food places - very low key, understated decor and powerful food flavors.
They offer brunch, which obviously for vegans, is very exciting! Vegan pancakes, vegan spinach lasagna and vegan crab cakes on the weekends? Ok, sounds good, if you like cooked food and can have gluten. All vegan though, pretty sweet traditional style food - veganized! Great to have something like this in B'more.
When you order here, the menu is pretty small for the number of entrees, but, I like it better, because it feels like they can manage a smaller menu and keep it up to date, with fresh ingredients and be fast to cook for you. Add on a side or two - best cooked choices, obviously the collard greens and mac and cheese! Good eating of "comfort food" that will make you forget the challenges of vegan eating when out with your non-vegan friends.
Prices are good, portions are good, staff is nice.
