Quite the hidden gem, worth a stop! - Edit

If you're going to know one thing about my experience at Cafe con Leche, it's that I accidentally said "damn" when my burrito came out.

But of course I'll tell you other things too ;)

On my way to World of Falafel, which unfortunately was closed for succot (jewish new year) so I ended up yelping this place with a long history dating back to just before the 21st century, and a much changed menu from back then, I was thrilled to see a whole page with vegan options. Everything from mexican to indian to "Vegan Crabcakes" which I'll need to try.

Upon suggestion of the hostess, i ended up with the vegan burrito, stuffed with spanish rice, romaine, and very well seasoned and cooked seitan. All wrapped in a blue corn flour tortilla and a side salad for $14. A little more than chipotle but also a little better than chipotle

¯_(ツ)_/¯

Great place, very quaint, and empty on a Sunday at 3:15 (I guess not many people eat full meals at that time...) Lookig forward to returning some day.

Pros: BIG burritos, Neat menu

Cons: A little hidden from the main street

Undiscovered gem - Edit

This restaurant is a rather surprising find. We actually discovered it prior to my becoming vegan and very much enjoyed their conventional menu items. We became vegan just a few months back, revisited the vegetarian/vegan options and was delighted to find them as good as the foods we had enjoyed prior. Although off the main street in Newtown, the entrance is in the back and can be easily missed if you aren't paying attention. The food is invariably fresh, wonderfully prepared and extremely reasonably priced. The servers are both young and exuberant about their love of the food. The feel of the restaurant is a bit kitchy, kind of like eating in grandma's kitchen, but it is cozy and pleasant, especially in the front room (our personal preference over the back). We've eaten there a bunch of times and food quality has been consistent across the board. It's become a neighborhood favorite of ours as well as those to whom we've introduced it.

Great Cafe, Plan on Going Again - Edit

I had the bruschetta, vegan crab cake, and vegan chocolate cake and everything was delicious. The vegan menu was pretty big and there was also a traditional menu, which the rest of my family appreciated. Some of the best food I've eaten in a while and the portions were really big. Definitely plan on returning.

Pros: Excellent food, friendly staff, Huge portions

Cons: Kind of difficult to find

Wonderful! - Edit

When my fiance told me he wanted to take me out on a date, I chose Cafe Con Leche because the full vegan menu meant we could both easily find something hearty to enjoy. First off, the ambiance alone exceeded expectations. I love how tucked in and European it feels. Second, the food was wonderful! He got a chicken fajita, and I got a cheikan fajita. My fajita was fresh and flavorful. My fiance even tried a bit and said mine was seasoned to perfection. I also had the mixed berry cobbler (sadly they were out of the vegan one) and a cafe con leche with almond milk We will definitely be going back!

Pros: Great variety, Something for everyone

Cons: None

Stupefying Delicious - Edit

I literally could not talk to my dining companion but eating his food. It was just too delicious and required my full attention. The dishes are creative, plentiful, diverse – and most of all scrumptious. This place is a find!

Pros: Amazing food and service , Free lot parking, Tons of vegan options

Tiny little haven. - Edit

It took me a minute to find the place, but once I walked in, I was happy that it was tiny, cute, and intimate. I had to find a place around or near Newtown to bring some non vegan family members and this was the most logical choice. At first I was confused because the vegan menu is called Green Tea, but once I found the menu, I was blown away by all the options. I tried a salad that was covered in various seaweed and poached pears. It was awesome. Everyone else also seemed to enjoy their meals. I will definitely be coming back here at some point with my vegan sister to try more of the menu.

Delightful - Edit

What a great place to enjoy a vegan meal. They have a separate vegan menu called Green Tea. I had the Vegano Crab Cake sandwich and my friend had the Stir Fry over pasta. We share vegan chocolate cake. The atmosphere warm charming. They had a big party there, and we had to wait a while till we got our dinner but we did not mind.

vegan entres - Edit

Wanted to like the vegan options since the green tea menu has so many of them. The Pad Thai and vegan crab cakes were average but the mushroom sage soup was very good though.

yummy vegan menu - Edit

Cafe Con Leche has a separate vegan menu they call "Green Tea". We tried Daniel's Chipotle Hummus with pita to start. It was good but not among the best hummus I've ever had. For my main plate I had the Cheikan Provencal. They use house made seitan for their cheikan and it's amazing. The texture was perfect. My spouse had the cheikan marsala and loved it as well. For dessert we had the Chocolate Raspberry Cake and I ended up wishing I ordered my own so I didn't have to share!
Overall, everything was really good and all of the ingredients obviously very fresh.

Pros: seitan dishes, fresh ingredients

Cons: small space

Amazing New menu - Edit

I have been eating at Café Con Leche for more than 15 years and have always been impressed by the quality of the food, the variety of the menu items and the warm personal service. But I have been wowed this summer by the fabulous new vegan menu. After trying at least five of the new options, I am happy to report that the menu is a huge success. can't wait to go back and try something else.

Pros: Great food, Vegan & veggie options, Warm, personal service

CurlyLocks 03 Jan 2015 - I love, love, love Cafe Con Leche! The Green Tea/vegan menu is wonderful, and chef Daniel is always adding something new. The soups are terrific. My husband and friends are not vegan, so eating at Cafe Con Leche (regular menu & vegan menu)has enabled us to enjoy a delicious meal together, locally. I highly recommend this restaurant!!
