Added to cheese to dairy-free meals - Edit

I made my order to be vegan with daiya cheese, but they put both daiya and regular cheese on mine. I only noticed this afterwards when I got an allergic reaction... Also, both of my friends had regular cheese on their meals when they asked for no dairy. Looking at other reviews, it looks like there's a trend in messing up vegan meals. Fortunately they gave us two of the meals for free of charge and rushed replacements without dairy for my friends, which was the right thing to do.

Long story short, they have great food, but check to see that they didn't mess up your order, especially for dairy-free cheese!

Pros: Lots of vegan options Tasty food

Cons: Messed up orders by putting dairy cheese on two or

Good Options, BAD follow through - Edit

My boyfriend and his mom and I have been to this place a load of times because they both eat animal products and like that it has both vegan and non-vegan options. The food is really quite delicious and the restaurant has a great ambience. HOWEVER, on several occasions I have noticed them serving non-vegan food to vegan customers (myself included) who clearly articulate their veganism, and for a restaurant who advertises itself as vegan-friendly this is obviously a really huge problem. It has happened to me twice (out of maybe 10 visits) which, in my opinion, is an unacceptable margin of error. Lucky for me the mixups were on items where I could clearly see that the cheese was not vegan, but I have witnessed others order the vegan mac and cheese and receive dairy products, which is not as easily recognized until eaten. The waitress confirmed to them that they were given dairy cheese and apologized, but as far as I know there was no effort made to offer a discount or complimentary meal. Eating animal products when assured that the item is vegan is something that can cause a lot of emotional distress to a vegan person so I was very disappointed in the way this was handled on each occasion. The food is good, but there are plenty of vegan &vegan friendly places on Bloor West that will not serve you animals by accident or oversight.

Pros: Delicious food, Nice wine

Cons: Have served animal products to vegan customers mul

Good for lunch - Edit

Six of us came for lunch and everyone enjoyed the food. I had the vegan burger, an interesting juice and finished with desert and coffee. The atmosphere was good and the service friendly. I will return another time but hopefully it will be less busy; the patio looked like it might be nice in the summertime.

Pros: Good food, Pleasant and helpful staff, Cheerful decor

Cons: Very busy, A bit on the loud side

Good resto with mixed options - Edit

I like going to this resto with friends who can't skip the meat. This way, I can get my vegan fix and they can get their organic meat-fix, too. I raelly like their pressed tofu and they have been amenable to changing their sandwiches into quinoa bowls for me. Their beet juices are fabulous. They also sell Kombucha (yum!). And, their cashew cheesecakes are delicious. A bit pricy when you start ordering a drink, main and dessert, but good quality food.

Worth a visit - Edit

Recently made it to Beet. There are certainly enough vegan options to keep the "serious" happy, and we enjoyed the food here. The muffins (chocolate/banana) are top-notch, and our grilled tofu sandwiches were very very good. The one down note was the smoothie - a cinnamon maple concoction that looked good but came luke warm (yuk). Luckily, my two year old loved it. Watch out - this place is very pricey, but given the local/organic, not unreasonably so.

Cool place - Edit

I actually can't comment on the food, but all I had was a coffee and piece of bread that came with my sister's soup, but there were so few reviews for the Beet I thought I'd add what I can anyway. I will mention that my huge mug of coffee with soymilk was very cheap (around $2).

The Beet is based on organic food, so while it is veg-friendly (and gluten-free friendly), it does serve meat. It has a great atmosphere, and would be a good place to go for coffee, lunch or dinner with friends, a casual date, studying... Menu has some interesting items and some very fancy looking drinks (I am sure I saw people drinking beet juice out of wine glasses!).

Pros: cool vibe, interesting menu, local and green

Closed - Edit

Got here around 4 pm. They were already closed.

Accessed by going through a TD Bank ATM lobby. Weird.

Will try they again and re-review. Three cows since their menu is mostly vegan and they're participating in the 1st Veggielicious!
