First Review by jenneyrebecca

Cozy spot with many vegan options! - Edit

As an out-of-towner, let me begin my review by saying how much I wish this place could exist in my town!
The first time I was here was in 2015 for breakfast (which was really brunch considering the time). This was when I was vegetarian, not fully having crossed over the like to going fully vegan. "Oh. My. God" (the way Janice says it in FRIENDS). With so many delicious options, how could I not want to go vegan! I remember during my 2015 visit here I also enjoyed how hot drinks are served on real mugs instead of papers cups. There's a comfort feeling about drinking from a mug. You could order the hot chocolate with any of many "milk" options: soy milk, almond milk, hemp milk...
Last week (2017) I happened to wake up in Orlando as a stop on a road trip. When I woke up I didn't even bother to Google for vegan options. My heart was already set on coming back to the Drunken Monkey. When I came back, the place was exactly how I remembered it. Friendly staff, and again with that comforting honey feeling. I can't quite explain the energy there. Maybe it was something to do with their living room decor, or like I said the ceramic mugs, the laid back vibe, but something about that place feels so homey. On my visit there I had the vegan breakfast wrap and a hot mocha. Yummy, yummy!
Next time I'm in Orlando I will definitely be coming back here again.

Pros: Lots of vegan options., Lots of plant based milks.

Good Food, Lots of Vegan Options, Cozy Atmosphere - Edit

Good food, not haute cuisine, but tasty comfort food with lots of vegan, vegetarian, and carnivore options. Mostly cold ready-made deli sandwiches that can be heated in a press, with a few cooked dishes and lots of nice dessert pastries, and a wide selection of hot, cold, and frozen beverages. Small shabby chic dining area is cozy and comfortable. Staff are cheerful and service is quick. Old folks, bring your iPhone or MacBook to fit in with the millennials, or you might find yourself making eye contact and having a meaningful conversation. All joking aside, a very pleasant place to have a good simple affordable meal, especially if you're vegan or vegetarian.

Pros: Lots of vegan and gluten-free options. Tasty food,

Cons: Small, tight parking lot.

love the variety! - Edit

Eclectic little place with lots of options! I had one of the daily specials...a vegan take on chicken and yellow rice. It was just ok, a little too dry for me.

Best Vegan Food and gluten-free baked goods - Edit

I eat here all of the time. I rarely eat anywhere else because I know that anything I get here will be great. I have never gotten a meal that isn't good. The gourmet soups blow away any other restaurant. The gluten-free desserts are the best in town. The owners are veg so you can trust that the meat does not contaminate the vegan foods.
It is a cool spot to hang out and see other vegans.

Pros: delicious

Amazing! - Edit

I'd give this place 5 cows if I could. A plethora of vegan options. Incredible vegan sandwiches, soups, bakery items, espresso drinks (hemp milk option and other non-dairy milks), 3 kinds of non-dairy creamers. This is vegan heaven! Stand up comedy night was so much fun! Free parking in lot on side.

Great place - Edit

Simply one of my favorite places in Orlando. Tasty vegan sandwiches, wonderful vegan soups, locally brewed kombucha on tap, and fun vegan desserts. Excellent supporters of the local veg community.

Pros: good prices, nice people, comfy

Cons: couches are getting a bit beat

Great vegan options but soups are too salty - Edit

Love the vegan paella, breakfast burritos, ANZAC Cookies and coffee. But soups are very salty. My last three soup orders were too salty. I hope they modify the recipe because they would be delicious for vegans and gluten free diners.

Not sure how I feel about this place - Edit

This is a coffee shop with a ton of food options. It was pretty dark and just seemed dirty to me. The food was all in an old deli case but was labeled clearly, although the signs were faded. They have vegan, vegetarian and meat options. I guess I'm suspicious of small establishments that do so much-they also had gluten free. It just seems it would be difficult to keep everything straight and keep the vegan items fully vegan. For example-regular, vegan and GF brownies that all looked exactly the same.
It was also the first time I've ever been seriously stared at while nursing my daughter. One cashier stared for a long time, got another cashier and she stared too. I was in the corner across the room staring back and they didn't seem to care, just kept watching me!
I ended up getting a bottled soda because I wasn't so sure of the food.

Pros: Lots of options, Clearly labeled

Cons: Dirty, Dark

Great food! - Edit

Great food! We were so lucky to find this place on our way through town. The food was really delicious, they had vegetarian and vegan wraps and dinner specials, as well as quiches and other nonveg dishes, and a whole lot of pastries. It looked like there were a lot of gluten-free items, too. The staff were all really nice and the atmosphere was more coffee-shop than restaurant. We liked it so much we went back for dinner, and all of the five or six different dishes we tried were delicious.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, good location

Cons: not much seating, little parking, not enough side dishes
