Meatloaf! - Edit

I usually get the meatloaf when I come here, which is served as either a dinner or a sandwich. The Vegan VLT is also good.

This place is well-known for their milkshakes, but they unfortunately don't have any vegan milkshake options. The food is very good, but I've decided to withhold the 4th star until they offer a vegan shake.

Pros: Meatloaf, Old School Ambiance

Cons: No Vegan Milkshake

Worth the visit - Edit

This is a cute and traditional diner with some really great vegan options. I went for lunch and was surprised how many options they had available. I had the 'Meatless meatloaf' sandwich.
You can get it as an entree, or on a sandwich.
All of their breads are baked on site and are very fresh.
I also had the Vegan cheesecake (split it with my partner) which was a good sized portion and very tasty.
They had soy milk for my coffee which was a nice option. I left stuffed...
I plan on going back next time I am in the Buffalo area... They had house made applewood smoked vegan bacon which I have to try next time I go ....
In my opinion, this is a must try when you are in Buffalo...

Pros: Great vegan options, Quick service, Good sized portions for the price

Cons: You may have to wait for table during busy times

Great place to dine! Fun! The staff were extremely knowledgeable about vegan food & super friendly. I tried the vegan burger with a glass of chocolate almond milk. Vegan blueberry cheesecake for dessert. Free parking right in front. Definitely recommend this place.

Pros: multiple vegan options

Great burger - Edit

The burger there is really yummy. I haven't had the other options but no one I have gone with has disliked their food.
