Nice place, but not great for vegans

Posted on 04 / 01 / 2013

I like this cafe very much. It was full of people, and had a great ambiance. Friendly staff too. But it's not a great place for vegans, or strict vegetarians. First of all, none of the menu items are clearly marked, and it wasn't easy to figure out what I could eat. It was sort of dependent on which staff member you asked. None of the baked goods were marked vegan. I had a good falafel and soup. Nothing to get too excited about, but capable.

Pros: Ambiance
Cons: Nothing marked vegan

A Veggie Gem

Posted on 12 / 30 / 2012

The Penny is an unexpected treasure in downtown Lethbridge. I was delighted to discover that many of the dishes on their menu were vegetarian with lots of options to make things vegan. Because the food is made from scratch- the ingredients are simple and the staff are able to tell you what is veggie friendly. Lovely people, great ambiance.

Pros: friendly staff, great ambiance, resonable cost
