Great vegan options! - Edit

Going to a non-vegetarian restaurant, I usually don't expect much. But, this place had multiple options on the menu for me. I ended up ordering the vegan Mac and cheese, which was AWESOME! I have made so many versions of this, and theirs was surprisingly delicious. That plus a house salad, which had organic greens, Apple, and hazelnuts, and I had a really great meal!

Pros: Great options

Good vegan options - Edit

I had dinner here my first night in Spokane and had a hit and miss experience. It's a funky (in a good way) place with a lot of vegan options on the menu. Hits -- the warm pretzels with the vegan cheese sauce (good, but sauce was not very warm and was pretty bland), and the polenta appetizer (very good and a decent portion). Miss -- the black bean chili, which was the blandest chili I've ever eaten. Seriously, it tasted like it didn't even have salt in it, much less any other spices. I would come back for the polenta!

Pros: Good options for vegans, reasonably priced

Cons: food is very bland

Vegan options clearly marked - Edit

This is a really nice little restaurant, classy decor and all. What I appreciated most is that their vegan options are very clearly marked, and there are plenty of them. The food was mostly hit, with a few misses. To start with, the vegan pretzel appetizer was AMAZING - do not miss it. It was a warm, homemade pretzel (2 actually), with a delicious dipping sauce. Very original and, honestly, one of the better things I've eaten in the last few years. My flatbread was less exciting. Tasty, but a bit dry. The Vegan Mac and Cheese was good, not great; The vegan burger was quite good, though not exceptional. Still, it was a good meal overall, if not a spectacular (pretzel excluded - that thing was sensational.). I give this four cows which is my actual rating - even though that is the limit for a Veg Friendly (I hate the Happy Cow limitations), that's all I would give.

Pros: PRETZEL!!!

Love the food! - Edit

Saranac has several vegan dishes on their menu which are all amazing. Specials rotate and often include vegan options as well and they offer a kids menu too. One thing I don't like is their servers. They are friendly, but not well trained and lack knowledge. I had to argue with a server that black tea is usually caffeinated unless marked. Stupid, right? If you can get past the servers, your experience will be great.

Pros: yummy vegan options

Cons: the servers
