rosendale serves it up bland and dry
Posted on 10 / 21 / 2008
i joined the happy cow forum specifically because i have a real "beef" with the rosendale cafe. though it is one of the only sit down vegetarian restaurants in the area, we have found the service slow and the food dry and bland. our very last ditch try was a few weeks ago. the african peanut soup was muchy, lumpy and flavorless. we split an order of sauted veggies in a sesame sauce, brown rice and beans. first off, there was no sauce. the waitress handed us a bottle of tamari. the brown rice and beans were two dry lumpy piles on the plate which were very unappetising in appearance and in taste. another time we ordered nachos with soy cheese. a few minutes after it was served the waitress came over and apologized that the cheese was dairy...watch out vegans! its a shame because the place has such character but with all the vibrant, farm-fresh produce available and all the variety of recipes out there, the rosendale cafe lacks both cooking and creative juice.
cool environment, live music sometimes, vegetarian restaurant
bland food, mushy food, boring food
