First Review by KundaliniYoga

can make many things vegan - Edit

Great service, willing to make anything vegan, however many baked items with butter that don’t actually need butter. Alternative “milks” cost $.75 more which seems... But a great option before 7pm!

Pros: great service, vegan options, great soy latte

Cons: butter butter butter, closes at 7pm, quiche options only have meat and cheese

Best Option for a Quick Bite in the Village! - Edit

The Copper Q has vegetarian and vegan options although the vegan options are not always so clear. For example, the vegan BLTA comes on a non-vegan croissant but can be made truly vegan by subbing the bread for sourdough. Be sure to always double check! If ordering food I suggest heading to the kitchen area to speak to the cook (she seemed much more knowledgeable about veganism than the cashiers). The pastries list the ingredients right in the case. This is the best option in the village for a quick bite to eat. Note that seating is limited and community style.

Pros: Atmosphere, Parking, Friendly Staff

Cons: Mislabeling , Limited Seating

misleading vegan titles - Edit

Every time I went here they messed up my meal. They advertise a vegan BLTA (yet its made with a non vegan croissant) On the menu it says that the oats can be “made” vegan. I ordered vegan ones and they tasted really off so I asked about the ingredients and it turns out they’re made with butter. As someone who is also allergic to dairy I could’ve gotten really sick if I would’ve finished them. Lots of vegetarian options but would not recommend this place for vegans or people. They are unorganized and not a safe bet for vegans
