cute place and good food - Edit

atmosphere is relaxed and cosy, food tasted very fresh and home cooked. I wish I knew why the older waitress lady ignored us completely..
the rest was excellent.

Gluten free selections - Edit

Went to the PS 1/MOMA museum so this cute little place was only one stop away by train. We went at an off peak hour, about 3pm. The vegan buffet was not all you can eat, it was by the pound and a little sparse. My friend wanted to be adventurous and did try the buffet but he was not that impressed. Might have been better earlier in the day. The buffet would not be the best choice for gluten free folk as well since the best selection looked like it would be the seitan dish. On the other hand, I had a wonderful gluten free "tempeh ruben" sandwich, and I am not that much of a big sandwich fan. I also had a lovely coconut shake. They were all out of desserts, was looking forward to the gluten free ones! certainly worth a try when you are in the Greenpoint area!

Pros: Nice community tables., Clean, Gluten free selections

Vegan - Edit

We elected to try the all you can eat, Sunday brunch during our last trip to New York. We were staying in Manhattan, and decided that it would be a nice walk, and a worthwhile meal at the end of our journey. We weren't overly impressed. It wasn't bad, but certainly was NOT worth the walk. Additionally, we had our two year old with us. We aren't typically charged for him to eat off of our plates (as with most 2 year old children, his appetite is still developing), in this case, they were going to charge us full price for him. We elected to get him something from the kid's menu instead -- of course, he didn't eat it. Nevertheless, the food wasn't bad, just not overly flavorful.

Pros: Vegan

Cute vegan cafe - Edit

Jungle cafe serves great vegan food with great service and a fantastic atmosphere. The service was great, but being buffet style, do not expect wait services. Greenpoint is in dire need of more vegetarian options, and jungle cafe fills those needs! Also, there's a happy hour special every weeknight from 4-6 (I believe).

Pros: atmosphere, delicious food, cheap

Excellent - Edit

Had some marvelous food here a couple of times now and it seems to be the new favorite joint in the neighborhood which is severely lacking in vegetarian and vegan food, strangely enough. The first time I came here was on a Friday night and there was a live band playing in the corner which was both cool and annoying. It was this awesome latin-jazz-fusion group that was absolutely blasting their deafening tunes.. to the point where it wasn't so enjoyable and we even thought about leaving. But the food is awesome and the folks there, while a little too hippie for my taste, were nice. Wish they'd expand a bit on the gluten free side of things but otherwise, a winner. The carrot cake was on point.

Pros: Awesome food, Great desserts, In Greenpoint where there's no veg food!

Cons: Live music too loud, need more gluten free
