needs improvement

I'll admit the problem with this place was my expectations were too high. This is a cool looking place and it's in this awesome up and coming neighborhood called Elk City that has a great creative/artist/musician vibe so yeah I was expecting vegan items on the menu. The vegan selection was quite disappointing. There was a sweet potato burger but it's not even listed as its own item it's listed as a "sub" for the meat burger and to add insult to injury they charge $2 extra for the sweet potato burger. I didn't even notice it on the menu until i asked the waitress what vegan items they have and she pointed it out to me.

Come on, Books and Brew, you can do a lot better than this.

Delicious vegan options

Our Server Cody, and the owner Claire are both vegan and helped ensure we had a vegan meal and talked about future menu items they would like to add. They were 1 of only 2 restaurants that participated in Charleston restaurant week and specifically mentioned that their items could be made vegan. We had a veggie pizza roll (no cheese), a BBQ Jackfruit sandwich, and an apple cobbler that were all vegan and delicious!

Pros: Great food, Knowledgeable staff, Great vibe

Cons: Would like more options. , Would like to see vegan cheese offered, The sweet potato sandwich sells out
