I really really want to love this place - Edit

The food is bland. Mushroom-heavy tofu scramble seems to contain only one spice, and that spice is turmeric. Mehhh. Had to dump a bunch of salt and cholula to bring out some flavor. The veg sausages, also, bland with weird sweet undertones. It's the ONLY place around for sit-down vegan breakfast option, so I guess they have that going for them. No problem w service. Waitstaff was super-nice and quick.

Pros: multiple vegan options , good coffee

Cons: bland tofu scramble

Good Vegan options - Edit

I always love to visit local Urban kitchen as a treat. There are plenty of good vegan options for me which I love. One real bonus is that I can bring my kids here and there are plenty of menu items for them to choose from. It's a warm comfortable place with a very local Vibe and feel to it.

Pros: fresh juices & smoothies. Vegan desserts.

Cons: I wish it were open later

We wanted to love you - Edit

The best way to describe them is that their food tastes "stereotypically vegan". They don't know how to properly prepare vegan food. At this price, it SHOULD NOT be dry and tasteless. There are no other vegan restaurants close by, so we want to love this place, but they've disappointed consistently for 2 years. We're done trying. The smoothies are inconsistent and taste badly. The food is flavored poorly (if at all) and leaves you with a weird taste for about an hour afterward. Too often the food is dry and served at the wrong temperature. Their customer service tops the cake with their negative undertone and snootyness.

Pros: Cute inside, Vegan options

Cons: Poor customer service, Cannot prepare vegan food well, Parking

Great place for breakfast - Edit

Local Urban Kitchen is a great place for breakfast. The staff is helpful, friendly and attentive. The informal ambiance of this cheerful restaurant makes eating festive. I enjoyed the custom tables and benches constructed from varnished wooden pallets. There are many vegan breakfast choices: oatmeal, fresh fruit bowl with coconut yogurt, vegan mozzarella/cheddar cheese, pancakes, waffles. I had the Vegan Big Boy - tofu scramble with two vegan pancakes, vegan sausage and fruit (you could substitute homefries) which set me up for the day.
The coffee was fresh and strong (though I wished that it were served in mugs rather than paper cups). I plan to eat there again the next time I am at the Jersey Shore.

Pros: Delicious food, Prompt, friendly service, Cheerful, relaxed environment

Cons: Coffee served in paper cups

Here are a few of my favorites:

Juice: green morning start - fresh and delicious
Breakfast: Quinoa bowl or vegan pankcakes - yummy!
Lunch: veggie burger (ah-mazing!!)
Dinner: varies each week, but I had the vegetable provencal (mmm!)

Atmosphere:
So fun, relaxed, natural - they also have live music Thurs-Sat.

It's just so great to have a healthy restaurant that offers organic, vegan, gluten free and non-gmo! Always a favorite on my list )

They have amazing smoothies too!
