Left Happy - Edit

Stumbled upon this little store while celebrating my birthday in Watkins Glen. I was thrilled to indulge in a variety of pastries - and an oat milk latte! Staff members were eager and excited to answer our questions and accommodate. The place itself is quaint and lovable, with fun knickknacks and local food products lining the walls. Non-vegans with me were just as excited about the tasty food, and I can't wait to go back - the baked goods are calling my name!

Pros: baked goods, friendly and helpful staff, cute atmosphere

Cons: more vegan options are always better!

used to love it here. very disappointed. - Edit

They have changed the menu a few times it has not been a positive change. I used to love the Seitan tacos. They were terrible today. They completely changed the recipe. So disappointed. We won’t go back.

Great Place to Grab a Sandwich! Lots of Vegan Options. - Edit

For Gilmore Girls fans, walking into Glen Mountain Market & Deli feels like stepping into a Stars Hollow coffee shop. It's a charming place full of locals. It has with friendly, attentive staff and lots of locally made goods such as cards, food, and bath and body items for sale.

Of course the most important part is the food. This was the perfect place to grab some hearty sandwiches and pastries before a long drive home. While there aren't many vegan breakfast options, there are about 4 vegan sandwiches and they aren't all veggie wraps. I got the VTLS which is a basically a BLT with seitan bacon. It was fantastic! See attached photo. My husband got Jackson's Revenge which has a homemade tofu burger. This sandwich was underwhelming and had way too much mustard. I would not order it again.

The pastry counter had TWO trays of vegan goodies! We only got a cherry turnover but regretted not getting more. Don't make the same mistake we did!

Overall, Glen Mountain is a lovely little coffee shop with a good number satisfying vegan options that are both sweet and savory. If we ever find ourselves in Watkins Glen again, we will certainly be back!

Blah - Edit

Had a Sanctuary special and it was just blah. Though the seitan was good, there was too little, the bread was dry and I left disappointed and $9 poorer for a sub par skimpy sandwich.

good sandwiches at a fair price - Edit

This is always a good stop for lunch when visiting Farm Sanctuary. They have a few vegan options clearly labeled on their menu and at least one vegan pastry or cookie available. The sandwiches are made with Susie's Seitan, locally made in Ithaca. We had the VLT, which was bacon flavored Seitan with lettuce, sprouts, and tomato on toast, and the Sanctuary Special which is similar (your choice of bread and the Seitan flavor changes day to day) but has a great spicy mustard on it. All sandwiches come with a generous serving of chips and a pickle spear. We also had a few delicious vegan lemon cookies. The prices are fair and the portions are a good size. They always have a vegan side like a slaw or pasta salad available too.

Pros: vegan options clearly labeled, staff is helpful & knowledgeable about vegan optio

Cons: no bathrooms

A Few Vegan Sandwiches and Well-Priced - Edit

Glen Mountain Market Deli is a good place to grab something quick after visiting Watkin's Glen (it is within walking distance). They have a few vegan sandwiches to choose from including seitan, tempeh, and straight-up vegetables. The price is very reasonable (only about four bucks for the sandwich and chips). Not worth going out of the way for but good if you are in the area.

Pros: Inexpensive, Good Food, Friendly Staff

Cons: Limited Selection

Quick and inexpensive - Edit

The sandwich bar is nice, and they had more vegan options than we had expected. It was a nice surprise.

Unfortunately, they were out of tempeh when we went, so that eliminated half of the vegan options. The burgers were OK, but nothing extraordinary.

It's good, but not anything I would make a special trip for.

Pros: Friendly, Inexpensive

Cons: Serves meat

Great for a quick, casual lunch - Edit

We popped into Glen Mountain Market on our last day of our stay at Farm Sanctuary. GMM was recommended as a place to eat on FS's dining guide. It's about a 10mins drive from the farm to Watkins Glen.

We all had V.L.T.S seitan sandwiches with sprouts and coffees. It was a nice and simple lunch. The staff were friendly. Be advised that they close early. We had tried to go there the day before but found it closed in the late afternoon.
Updated from previous review on Thursday August 16, 2012

I returned a year later to find a sorry sight of fruit flies all over this place. Very unusual in October. The espresso-based drinks here are truly bad but there actually are no other alternatives that I could find as far as independent coffee shops or even a Starbucks.

Pros: Vegan meal options, Soy and almond milk, Casual

Cons: Terrible espresso drinks, Fruit flies everywhere
