A nice brunch! - Edit

I had a nice experience here for brunch. I visit the area often, and it's right next to a little natural foods store, so I decided to eat there with my partner.
They offered as much vegan options as non vegan on the breakfast menu. My partner got a veggie tofu daiya cheese wrap with home fries on the side, and I got myself toast with earth balance butter (lots of it) with tofu scramble, fakin' bacon, and a side of fresh fruit. The waitress knew exactly what she needed to know about a vegan meal - she even named off everything on the menu that was vegan for us which was kind, and got me earth balance butter from the kitchen fridge for my toast!

The tofu scramble should have been seasoned much much more, that was my only complaint. But salt and pepper does the trick anyways.

I will be coming back here for breakfast whenever I am in the area, and will try their lunch/dinner someday!

Pros: Delicious food, Fresh food, Good Service

Cons: Pricey for Tofu, Needs a little more seasoning

Vegans/Vegetarians Beware! - Edit

My husband and I are vegetarians and love Worcester for the quality and quantity of restaurants that have veggie options. Today we made a trip to Worcester to attend the annual vegetarian fest at Worcester State College. At the event we picked up a brochure that listed Evo as being veggie-friendly and having vegan pizza and sandwiches. We figured we'd give it a shot.

Upon arrival we were thoroughly excited. The restaurant has a cool look and indeed, the menu is very veggie friendly. I ordered a tofurkey panani and my husband ordered a tofurkey wrap. As we waited for our food we were initially talking about coming back to try a number of other options we saw on the menu. All of that changed....

Our food arrived and we dug in. We happily munched away on our lunch until my husband's wrap fell apart and we noticed that the contents were not tofurkey at all. He had been eating a turkey sandwich. My sandwich was indeed tofurkey, but his was chalk-full of meat. Unfortunately, I had taken a bite of his food as well, so we both ate meat unknowingly. We were both physically sick when we realized the mistake.

For a restaurant that serves so many vegetarian and vegan options, we both felt like this was an unforgivable mistake. When told of the mistake our waitress didn't seem to understand the gravity of the situation. In fact, she didn't apologize and she still tried charged us for the sandwich!!!

Still being charged was the last straw. I, now in tears, approached the manager. The manager was much, much more understanding and apologetic. There were countless apologies and the manager took both of our sandwiches off of the tab.

The whole situation was disgusting and embarrassing. Needless to say, we'll never go back to Evo.

Be careful about the "meat" - Edit

Like another reviewer wrote, I also received a vegan "turkey" sandwich that had real turkey on it. Not happy about that. I sent it back and the waitress was nice about it. The pesto rice balls were to die for. This place is very inconsistent. Atmosphere is very nice.

Pros: atmosphere, location

Cons: wrong order, not great vegan

Would not recommend... - Edit

I would not recommend this restaurant to any vegans or vegetarians. We ordered from them quite often when they first opened. They had a "Vegan Steak and Cheese Bomb" sandwich that we were fond of. Then one day we ordered a "Vegan Tofurkey Rueben" which came to the table with real turkey on it. When we questioned the waitress she said that the cooks assured her it was Tofurkey. I refused to eat it, so my husband took it. We happenned to order the vegan rueben one time after that and the "meat" was a completely different color and texture (obviously NOT real turkey). My husband did attempt to order from them another time and they admitted that the "vegan" sandwiches were made with non vegan soy cheese. If you order anything labelled as vegan on the menu, they WILL flat out lie to you about it. There is nothing truly vegan on the menu.

Pros: none for veg*ns

Cons: vegan labels not true, expensive, uneducated staff

This place is so not worth it! - Edit

The EVO cafe attached to Living Earth is awful! The "vegan" cheese they use was not even vegan when I went there - it contained casein!! Food is way overpriced for what it is, and the vegan options are totally uninspired. Seriously, not worth shelling out the dough to even try this place; just stay home and make your own veggie burger - at least you'll know it's really vegan.

Cons: not very veg-friendly, they don't know what vegan means, way overpriced
