Convenient, with okay food

This place is across the street from the main branch of the NY Public Library. There are no seats or bathrooms available for customers; you order at the counter, then make a bowl or pita wrap for you, and then you go on your way (you can eat at Bryant Park across the street). There are not a lot of vegan options--as far as I can tell, the main vegan item they offer is felafel. It tastes fine, though not as good as a real felafel place.

Pros: Convenient, quick service, not expensive

Cons: Not gourmet, they offer lamb
