Went here for the first time and had the Lasagna. It was delicious! The best vegan lasagna I've had in recent memory.
My date had the stir fry. I had a taste of that, and it seemed alright, but not as delicious as the lasagna.
We shared a dessert, and that we quite delicious as well!
The atmosphere was quite lovely and relaxing (nice for a romantic date), and the staff were very attentive and friendly. I'd definitely recommend this place.

i am a vegan who's dined at vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants across canada, and i must say this place probably has the most delicious tasting vegan 'meats' i've ever had. the flavours and textures are delicious... and 'enlightening'! :)

ups and downs

i visited cafe mosaics several times during my stay in edmonton this august. many of the dishes can be altered for a vegan, which is great. i liked the atmosphere and music of the place. the food was consistent and fairly tasty. i found the serving staff to be inconsistent - some where very friendly, others would just plop something down on your table without saying boo with a very apathetic attitude. i found other inconsistencies too - i asked for a side of salsa with a particular meal. the first time or two i asked for this, it was included. one of two other times (i went there a lot) they charged me $1.50 for the salsa (which i think they should mention if it will me extra, but whatever.) and another time someone actually charged $2.oo for this little side of salsa (about two tablespoons worth, I'd say) - which seems a little ridiculous. But it was more the fact that the price was inconsistent that bothered me a lot.
another time, i asked to substitute soy ice cream with the chocolate ganache when i ordered the fruit crisp. i've done this before several times. but the most recent time i was charged extra for the ganache. again - inconsistency is not good.

This place is a gem!
Everything on the menu sounded so delicious and mouthwatering it took a while to decide what to order.
The pasta dishes can be ordered in full or half-orders, so my date and I ended up ordering 4 half-orders of the pasta dishes so we could get a sampling of each.
They were all delicious, but my particular favorites were the gnocchi and the bottlecap pasta. All their pasta is made in-house.
Unique relaxing yet sophisticated atmosphere, and very friendly and attentive service, too!
I'd highly recommend this place to veg*ns and omnivores alike.

A little bland...

I wanted to try this place because of the excellent 5-cow reviews it received here on the happycow site. It sounded like it must be a pretty amazing place.
I found the food to be alright, but simply that - "alright" or "okay", but not amazing or mind-blowing; in other words, the food (as well as atmosphere) seemed mediocre, and some dishes were downright bland. (My personal opinion, of course.)
The man at the register was extremely nice and friendly, and the place was clean. The prices seemed pretty decent too.
I'd say it's a decent casual place, but not really the kind of place you'd want to go for a cozy and romantic date.
