Eating like a non-vegan! - Edit

My husband and I love this place!!!! They have an entire vegan menu (which I think we've tried everything)! I love that I can get a sub, calzone, pizza, pasta dinner with my non-vegan friends. It's great that there is food for everyone! I really enjoy being able to get a "chicken" parm sub again...a favorite non-vegan choice of mine. The options are just amazing. If they were closer we'd be there very often. Prices are a bit high but sooo worth it! Recommend for vegan and non-vegans. Everyone should head over there!

Pros: Great food, Amazing vegan menu, Great staff

Cons: A bit expensive

My fav pizza EVER - Edit

I love getting many things from here. One is the seitan bomb and the other is one of the specialty pizzas. Do yourself a favor: get the "I hate meat" vegan pizza and add tofu rinnota. It's pure nirvana, probably the best pizza I've ever had.

Pros: Fantastic pizza!, Cheese fries!, Desserts!

Cons: Slightly pricey (but worth it)

Nice option if you're in the area - Edit

***Update***
Since my posting in 2013, I have ordered here numerous times (as they deliver to my house). On a number of occasions a side dish was forgotten and once in 2014, I got cheese that looked & smelled suspiciously like cow cheese (it was not the usual white daiya) which I did not eat and tonight (Feb 10, 2014) I finally experienced what others have reported - I received BBQ chicken instead of tofu; yuck! When they get it right, it's good, but it's not worth the risk of delivery mistakes with animal products - downgrading to 2 stars.
************

While I have never eaten there in person, I've had their delivery food on several occasions at parties. As far as comfort food goes, their vegan options are quite nice - last I had a pizza (w/ daiya) and tofu tenders (I think it was April, 2012) which were tasty.

My friends have had multiple problems with getting non-vegan items by mistake (they serve primarily meat/dairy options), which might be acceptable in an omnivore world, but is very bad for vegans who seek to avoid animal use (not only ingestion). I've heard they've gotten better about that, but I have a somewhat irrational fear of "substitutes" being "real" (and me not knowing the difference), so that's kept me from patronizing them.

I'd suggest extra emphasis on "vegan" for every food item whenever ordering from there.

So many veg options! - Edit

Wow! Talk about veg options--we're talking GIANT vegan daiya pizzas, tofu tenders, and awesome + filling subs. My former favorite food was anything buffalo, so I was beyond excited to find some vegan buffalo tenders here! They are also very environmentally conscious and a certified green business, which I appreciate.

Did I mention that they deliver? That about seals the deal. The management are very veg-knowledgable and friendly, and they go out of their way to provide a ton of options for us. Please support this business when you're looking for some comfort food or delivery!

Pros: tons of options, delivery, great pizza
