Everything was unique and so good!!!!!! Plus, it's an added bonus that everything can be made gluten free.

Vegan variety

There was a variety of different vegan options to choose from. We opted for the Tofu Banh Mi, Impossible meatball sub, a kids mac & cheese to share and a Do Rite vegan donut for dessert. The sandwiches were served on crunchy, fresh baguette bread with just the right amount of sauce so it wasn't dry and wasn't dripping. The meatball sub tasted like spaghetti on a sandwich in a really good way. Veggies in the Banh mi were fresh & crunchy. The sub and mac & cheese were both lukewarm when we got them (even though we arrived 3 minutes before scheduled pickup) and probably would have tasted better hot. The donut was more of a bundt cake - moist, light, fluffy with a slight zing of lemon and sweetness from a dusting of powdered sugar. Staff was friendly when they brought out our order (curbside pickup) and the tables outside were all clean and well spaced apart. Everything was packed in biodegradable packaging.

Pros: Vegan variety, Vegan baked goods, Biodegradable to go containers

Cons: Offer cow's milk & honey for drinks, A little pricey (especially without sides)
