Best Falafel ever
26 Jan 2010
Hit up Amsterdam after a Caps game this past weekend.
By far the best falafel I have ever tasted. Went with three other people, two of which are non vegetarians, and had never had a falafel before. Everyone enjoyed their as much as I did.
Staff went out of their way to explain which toppings were vegan and what ingredients they contained.
Can't wait to go back to D.C. so we can eat there again. Definitely a must try.

Sadly I was disappointed
26 Jan 2010
I am sorry to say that I was truly sad that this place was a huge disappointment. I live in Baltimore and have had several people tell me that I had to try out Java Green the next time I was in D.C. My husband and I were so excited when we got there because we were blown away by their huge menu.The place was packed. This had to be a sign that the place was good, right?
We both decided on sandwiches, the "temptation" and the "veg max". Our two non-veggie friends who came with us ordered the "spicy noodle soup" and the "tofu and avocado" wrap.
Our appetizer, the 20 piece "popcorn chicken" came out quickly but we waited a long time for the rest of our meal.
The "popcorn chicken" were very small and didn't have much flavor to them. Nine dollars seemed quite steep for the size of the appetizer which was hardly enough for the four of us.
Not only did we wait for our meals for at least 30 minutes, but both sandwiches were served on burnt toast, my friends wrap came out as a sandwich, (also served with burnt bread), and my other friend's soup was so spicy that he couldn't even finish it. In addition, the menu says that the sandwiches are served with a side, a pickle or chips. We noticed on our bill that adding these sides cost extra. 50 cents for chips, and 75 cents for the pickle. My tempeh sandwich was lacking in flavor and my husband said his sandwich did too. Both of them seemed like sandwiches we could have made at home and they would have been much tastier and less expensive.
I can't say that I would like to eat at Java Green again but I might have to just so I can justify my opinion about the place. The most disappointing thing about our whole experience is probably that we had two friend with us that are not vegetarians. Having them have a bad experience at a vegetarian restaurant fails to show them that there is really great veggie food out there. If you haven't yet tried Java Green and plan to do so, I would recommend trying it out for yourself first before taking anyone with you- especially if you plan to go with non-veggie friends

Good food. Several vegetarian options but not that many vegan options. For vegetarians, the black bean burger wrap is a must. For vegans, give the grilled tofu & avocado wrap a try, it's pretty tasty. Be sure to have a little extra cash to spend, this place tends to be a little pricey. Be sure to have some extra time, too. The service can be a little slow.

I am very disappointed to learn that so many people have had such terrible experiences at this place. My fiance and I went for the first time tonight and we were definitely surprised. We were hesitant at first, making backup plans to go elsewhere if our service was bad. However, our waiter was extremely pleasant and helpful and the food was quite tasty. (I must admit that the food didn't completely blow our minds, but with only a limited amount of vegan restaurants to choose from in baltimore, it was pretty good.) In addition, their restrooms were very clean which for me, says a lot about a place.
Although OWC tended to have a much trendy vibe for my taste, I will definitely be a returning customer. I will be sure to update my reviews if anything happens to change.
Two thumbs up for the "crab cakes, boca burger, and soy cheese quesadillas.

Well worth the trip from B-more to D.C

Visited Sticky Fingers on our way out of the City. There was no seating available so we had to order our food to go. We tried the chicken quesadillas, the chicken ranch wrap, a couple different kinds of cupcakes, sweet & salty cookies and grabbed a slice of lasagna from the grab n go cooler.We also loaded up on a couple of other things while we were there like: dandies marshmallows, primal sticks, and a roll of teese cheese.
Every single thing that we ordered was soooo delicious. The quesadillas were stuffed with plenty of chicken and cheese, the wraps were hardy and the sweets were outstanding. My favorite was the lasagna. It was amazing.
I would definitely recommend Sticky Fingers to anyone visiting the D.C. area. I noticed some previous reviews noted that the staff was not friendly. However, our experience was pleasant. (Overly chatty girl behind the counter but she did say that she just started working there.)
