First Review by Veggie J

Simple and delicious - Edit

Well this was a delightful surprise! I was just strolling about in Old Strathcona when I came across this hidden gem.
A fully vegetarian cafe with vegan options.

The setting is not your typical cafe style. It's nuevo-kitch; velvet sofas, chandeliers, with easy jazz playing in the background. LOVE IT!

I opted for the Strawberry Lemonade and the special for the day: Cabbage and Mushroom handmade dumplings (vegan). They were both flavourful and delicious!

The proprietor is very friendly and works hard to make sure you are happy.

Will definitely go back!

Vegan unfriendly - Edit

This place is unfriendly towards vegans. The restaurant advertises on both its signage and menu that it is friendly towards vegetarians and vegans. Yet the staff do not even know what a vegan diet entails. (The menu seems vegetarian, but most dishes have dairy). Once we were seated, I asked the server which dishes could be made vegan. She asked me what I meant by that, and I explained what vegans can/not eat. She consulted with the chef, who seemed equally confused about what vegans can eat, but said that most dishes can be done in a vegan way. I was a bit distraught by this, but decided to give the benefit of the doubt and I ordered a pasta dish. A few minutes later, the server returned and asked if I wanted my parmesan served on my pasta or on the side. At this point it became clear that they did not understand vegan food, so I informed the server that I'd be leaving. I cannot comment on quality of food. All I can say is: If you are a strict vegan, beware of this place. They do not understand what a vegan diet entails (it was clear that neither server nor cook knew it) even though they advertise themselves as vegan friendly.
