Best vegetarian kitchen in the state
Posted on 03 / 21 / 2014
There's no signage indicating that there's a restaurant in this music shop but The Musical Forest Cafe is definitely a rising star. The staff is tiny and the single chef makes all of the food in an open kitchen. The chef is extremely friendly--ask him about the menu, he'll change anything to your liking and recommend anything.
The menu is completely lacto vegetarian. With the exception of dairy cheese and coffee creamer options, it's entirely vegan. All the food is organic and non-GMO and a lot of it is local.
We tried the caprese panini, some sort of veggie cauliflower and carrot panini, and sausage and peppers sandwich, and got sides of cole slaw and barbecue pasta salad. Everything was fantastic and fresh but the sausage and peppers is an absolute must- the sausage is made in house and was absolutely delicious. It's made completely from scratch, as are the other "meats" sold (hot dogs, etc.)
Easily the best vegan meal we'd had and much. Notches better than the other vegetarian bistros around (and half the price!) If you're anywhere near the area, make it a priority. It's well worth a trip.
Fantastic organic food, Great staff, Flexible menu
No room for larger parties
