No-go Vegan Breakfast - Edit

I'm newly vegan and am just learning the ropes. I'm alright with slim pickings when I go out but this place left me hungry. My boyfriend and I figured we would try out breakfast here and this place is messy.. Very loud, very tight, could not walk around without bumping in to at least three people from point A to point B. The food came out relatively fast for me. I ordered oatmeal and the stone grains, after asking the cashier what vegan options were available this hour and was told these were the only two that could be made vegan. After about five minutes I got it and it looked delicious! Although.. It was so bland. I've had bland oatmeal before but it was nothing compared to this. The oats had no flavor either. I'm not one to waste food but I could not eat these things. I had a few bites with the fruit and had to toss it. My boyfriends french toast came out after about ten minutes. He enjoyed his meal but I was left wondering "Is veganism even worth it?" while staring at his plate. Needless to say my meal left me in a terrible mood the rest of the day. We are only in town for two nights so it's not like I can just go home and cook a meal and continue with my day. Maybe lunch would have been better.

TLDR; Really do NOT suggest this place for vegan breakfasts. Slim pickings unless you like bland oatmeal.

Pros: Fun environment if it wasn't too busy, Nicely located

Cons: Slim pickings for vegans, Loud, Very busy

AnnahBarber 30 Oct 2017 - Hi Rachae! I visited this place almost exactly a year ago today and I couldn't tell you. ): Sorry! I just remember that the cashier told me there were only two vegan options at that point in the day.

Yummy and great location - Edit

Everything is made fresh on site, so even though some of the dishes are vegetarian, not vegan, they will gladly leave the cheese or other non-vegan ingredients off a dish. Everything I had was delicious. Service was a little slow and it is very noisy inside, but there is a decent amount of outdoor seating. I did wish for a little more flavor in my food and the chips were served without any salsa or other dip, but I was just so glad to find a place I could eat right in the colonial area and near the College.

Pros: fresh-made, will make substitutions

Cons: noisy inside

skip it - Edit

As a college and tourist town, it's so surprising to me that Williamsburg does not have better vegan options. I've tried to eat here once, out of pure curiosity and hunger. There was not one vegan option- maybe a wrap made with honey if that's fine-oh and if you're fine with paying $8 for it and side of tortilla chips. They sell Liz Lovely cookies for $5 a pack. The place is also ALWAYS packed full of people-it's so loud and cramped. Employees are rude. Ugh, Williamsburg.

Slim pickings for vegans - Edit

While they do have vegan cookies, the menu is not oriented towards vegans. I went in to see about vegan options: the wraps are honey wheat, lots of animal cheese-based things. I tried to negotiate something vegan with the cashier & she just seemed overwhelmed like she didn't know where to begin. Of course one could order a salad sans meat & cheese with a vinaigrette... But if you want a hearty meal then go somewhere else.

Pros: cute atmosphere

Cons: no tofu addons, honey-wheat wraps, no menu notation for vegan options
