earth balance not included - Edit

Went in for their vegan options. I ordered the tofu sweet potato hash . When I got my plate it looked delicious but they brought it with butter. I immediately noticed the regular butter and asked for the vegan butter which I thought should be automatically included since it's a vegan plate. I got the vegan butter but wasn't told it would cost more. I feel the vegan butter should just come with the plate and the cost should be included into the plate. Place was good, service was excellent just need to be on the same page with the vegan diners, since they offer vegan options.

Great Atmosphere, Uneven Food! - Edit

As others have pointed out, this is a hipster haven and although I am not a hipster, I love to come here to sit and write while nibbling on breakfast or lunch. Certain of their items are truly top-notch -- the vegetarian/vegan chili, for example, or their home-made granola come to mind. On the other hand, some of their sandwiches are a bit lackluster. My biggest gripe is the fact that their green salad is obviously from a package, and they don't bother to remove the few wilted or wet pieces of lettuce that invariably are present. The coffee is Metropolis roasted to a somewhat burnt taste. There is usually parking on the street nearby. Overall, I consider this place a mainstay and would recommend it to couples for a weekend brunch -- but find your own favorites and stick to them!

Hipster Diner - Edit

Flying Saucer is a hipster style diner. I ate here a while back and wasn't a huge fan, but recently I've noticed they've had quite a few review great reviews - so I shall return (and an update will surely follow).

I had the 'tofu sweet potato hash' and thought it was just OK - I hate sweet potatoes and they said they'd switch them with regular but never did, so this is proabably why I didn't like it. They have a ton of other vegan options on the menu, so I'll likely try some of the other things.
