Bee products are not vegan -- Now off the menu!
Posted on 08 / 27 / 2014
I've upgraded to 5 stars now that I've learned that bee products are off the menu. :-) Kudos to the sistas!
Visiting from San Diego with family members, I was eager to eat at a 100% vegan restaurant, which was what I assumed from the restaurant's name and its (former) "Vegan" listing on HappyCow.
To my surprise, bee products were on the menu. When I pointed this out to the kind, mature waitress, she said it was a good thing I mentioned it so that she didn’t serve me anything else with those items in it (which made me wonder about the smoothie I was already drinking).
After an otherwise tasty meal, I spoke with one of the “Sistas” to let her know that bee products weren’t vegan. She said she had read they were "healthy."
Naturally, I eat at vegan restaurants so I don’t have to ask or worry about animal ingredients. But after a month, their menu has not changed. I'm hoping the recent downgrade to "Vegetarian" status on HappyCow will convince the sisters to eliminate bee products.
I wish them all the luck in the world as their hearts are in the right place.
