Not really vegan friendly. - Edit

The guy working (who might have been the owner?) didn't know the difference between vegetarian and vegan.

When we explained what we couldn't eat, he was more or less helpful. There's a pair of wraps (grilled veggie hummus wrap and sundried wrap) that are vegan off the bat, and they have falafel as well.

He said they can change other stuff to be vegan as well. Just be aware and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Pros: falafel

Cons: very limited vegan options, not intentionally vegan

Decent for a low-key cafe - Edit

Just off the main drag if Georgetown this cafe can easily be missed if you are not looking for it. It doesn't have a huge fancy sign or lights or decor. What it does have is old-fashioned consideration for customer needs and interests based in the available inventory of food items they have. I really appreciate how thoughtful attention can make a drab and ordinary cafe feel welcoming.

The veg options are plentiful if you eat cheese, but even without, there are a half dozen fruit smoothies, chips and guac, salads and wraps with fresh romaine lettuce, raw veggies and grilled veggies. Also, don't forget the falafel! Although such a popular item around town, it is pretty tasty here in a salad or on a pita with the real tahini sauce. It's real because it has that slightly bitter kick associated with the tahini in its natural form. Oh yes, they do have avocados for your salads and wraps.

Overall, a low-key and fairly priced cafe offering at least a half dozen veg choices as expected from a veg friendly cafe. The food is prepared as you order, so you can adjust and change whatever you want to make it vegan and/or gluten free. I don't believe they use nuts, but of course there are sesame seeds from the tahini.

If I am hungry for a late night falafel salad, with maybe fries or guacamole (why not?), I will head here! They are really nice!!

Pros: Veg friendly, Made to order salads and wraps, Friendly staff

Cons: Small cafe menu, Ambiance only ok
