First Review by vegan frog

Great food! - Edit

Love the house-made onion gf rings, better than any I've ever had. Kale ceaser is good with nut based cheese. Best patio ever. A little pricey but worth it once in a while. The baja style vegan tacos are a really good deal actually.

Pros: Lots of vegan AND gf options. The patio. Monster t

Cons: Prices ...

Great Food - Edit

We really enjoyed the artichoke sandwich and Burger. However the onion rings are undercooked and under seasoned .

Very nice backyard patio - Edit

I had what most people were raving about the eggplant sandwich and I was disappointed. It is for a glorified sandwich.
My friend had the Cappellini and they were great.
The only one vegan dessert the Chocolate mousse was FABULOUS!

Pros: The outside patio

Cons: Not all vegan

Tasty but pricey - Edit

From what I gather, the Arbor was supposed to be a more affordable eatery with focus on comfort food from the creators of the Acorn.
And it is indeed cheaper. However, the portions are pretty small in my opinion. As a result, you would end up spending say $18-$20 dollars for an appetizers and a burger and you still may feel hungry.

Pros: Gourmet, Interesting food

Cons: Expensive, Small portions, Not everything can be veganized

Great patio out back! - Edit

Loved the patio! It's a calm oasis, surrounded by tall trees and shrubs. The staff were friendly and helpful with recommendations. I really enjoyed the artichoke nuggets. The vegan mac and cashew cheese was very mild tasting but I liked that it was topped with lots of greens. They have daily specials. I was there on wine Wednesday and had an amazing glass of white for $5.

Casual comfort food with a fine dinning feel. - Edit

Went to the Arbor for the first time today and fell in love. It has a fairly small menu with almost everything vegan or can be made vegan. I had the Arbor burger with egg plant bacon and nut cheese, tacos, and pulled jack fruit steam buns. All we're unique in flavor, filling, yet not to heavy. I personally loved the Arbor burger. Just be warned it does not come with fries if your staving. I will be back soon to try out the remainder of the menu. Hopefully The Arbor will go 100% vegan eventually.

Pros: Unique, Light yet filling , Great atmosphere

Cons: Serves dairy

Fancy comfort food - Edit

Is there such a thing as fancy comfort food? Yes, at the Arbor!
We went there with friends on their opening week so we could order a bunch of items and try the different flavours. It is a very easy place to share food.
We had the broccoli popcorn (delicious), fried oyster mushrooms (amazing!), veggie burger (didn't try), the rice wrapper rolls (nothing special), the fried artichokes (also delicious), fries (really good but not as good as Meet) and the fajitas (didn't try. Looked yummy)
All 3 desserts were vegan and gluten free: the banana beignets, the chocolate pudding with lemon cream, the spices GF bread pudding. We were so full at the end we didn't have much appetite for them but they were all beautiful and tasted great.
On the whole, the food was really good. I would like to go back to give them a fair chance before really rating but I think it would be a solid 4 * anyway.
We liked the environment, it will be great in the summer when they can open up the patio. It was really good comfort food and I look forward to trying more of the menu.
While the restaurant is vegetarian, it is very vegan friendly and very gluten-free friendly.
A must try!

Pros: Very vegan friendly, Very gluten-free friendly, Great flavours

Cons: Might be a bit small
