bustling, and fresh - Edit

We were unable to eat at Chase's on the day we stopped in because they were packed to the gills with over an hour wait for a table. The menu looked nice for it's local and healthful options, though it was not a very large menu. Many items were cheese-or-egg-based, though there were a few clear vegan choices that looked interesting. There were no vegan baked goods in the bakery section, but we completed all of our produce shopping for the week with the most gorgeous, fresh, organic produce we've seen in a long time. There were a ton of bins filled with Chase's-grown produce from which to choose. Staff were very helpful, though sparse during the bustling time.

Pros: the best local organic produce , local, organic menu, very popular

Cons: small menu, too packed to sit and eat on a Saturday, lots of eggs and cheese dishes

Fresh, fresh, fresh - Edit

I ordered the tofu banh mi, which was overwhelmingly delicious. The tofu was marinated and cooked to perfection, and it was also topped with fresh, crunchy veggies and herbs. The bread was also great, and all the ingredients were so fresh and complemented each other perfectly. One of the best sandwiches I've had in recent memory.

It was served with a slaw, which was also amazing. The greens were crisp and flavorful, topped off with a delightful vinaigrette and sesame seeds. There were also two or three luscious, perfectly-cooked beet chunks on top.

The menu is a bit pricey (I think it was $13 for the banh mi + accompanying slaw), but you're getting great quality food.

There is also a cool farmstand-ish setup in the back. We got some Chinese broccoli (suiho) to go, and it was fantastic.

Pros: Amazingly fresh, Well-balanced, Farm fresh veggies for sale

Cons: Pricey

Worth the drive - Edit

One of my favorite things about Chase's Daily is that the owners grow the majority of the food that they use in the restaurant. All the vegetables are seasonal, and everything tastes fresh. During the growing season, they have a little farmer's market on the weekend where you can purchase some of their produce. Their heirloom tomatoes are sooooo good!

Their restaurant has a homey interior that makes you feel like you are enjoying a nice meal at a friend's home. It is filled with light, and it has the feeling of an old, New England farm house.

The food is something special too. They serve breakfast and lunch regularly. Dinner is only on Fridays. This is probably the best meal of the week at Chases, and reservations are recommended.

Pros: vegetables as local as they come

Vegetarian heaven - Edit

If you are a vegetarian, this is about as good as it gets. If you aren't a vegetarian, this place could change your ways. Everything served is remarkably full of flavor and obviously very fresh. Despite the name, dinner is served only on Friday's. It's gets busy and sometimes the service can be a bit slow, but the quality of the food more than compensates. The pizzas are not emphasized on the menu but they should be. They can compete with best from NYC, New Haven, and Italy. Other entrees and sides are equally impressive. If you're anywhere near Belfast, you shouldn't miss it.

Pros: Menu is all vegetarian, Food and service consistently excellent

Cons: Although all vegetarian, vegan options more l, Dinner only served once a week

Not Vegan Friendly or Tasty - Edit

Nothing on the menu is vegan. They claim that they can make anything vegan, but of the 2 entrees' we had, neither tasted good. The burrito and the grits were bland and the potatoes were shredded fine and fried so deeply that they tasted like oil. DON'T waste your time going here if you want to enjoy a delicious cruelty-free breakfast!

Cons: vegan choices, taste of food

Chase's Daily is an amazing vegetarian restaurant. They change their menu daily and cook using their own fresh vegetables and herbs. Each dish is well-thought-out, beautiful, fresh, and delicious! Dinner is pricey but lunch is affordable. It has a very relaxing atmosphere with a friendly staff.

Pros: amazing/ creative food, friendly staff, a great time!

Cons: none!
