Poor vegan options. - Edit

You basically can only do the fries and the brussel spouts without cheese or bacon if you're vegan. They have a veggie burger with a vegan burger and vegan cheese, but for some reason they can only serve it on a milk bun with no other bun options. wtf?

Impressive building - depressing vegan options - Edit

Per Rrrami777's review, this is frustrating. Can't understand why somewhere would go to the effort of a 'hand formed artisan vegan field roast veggie patty' with vegan cheese, veganaise etc. only to not bother to find a bun to serve it on that isn't vegan! Fantastic architecture / impressive venue though.

Pros: At least there's something vegan on the menu., Impressive venue.

Cons: No vegan buns!

frustrating - Edit

The vegan burger is no longer vegan, as it comes on a milk bun. They offered to lettuce-wrap it for me. That was the only possible option. It was not particularly tasty, had way too much vegan mayo, and came with regular fries - not an inspired choice.

The servers, however, were super nice and did their best to accommodate this "difficult vegan".

I will not be back.

Pros: service

Cons: lack of vegan options

disappointing.. - Edit

I met up with my parents here and was disappointed in the lack of vegan options. I should've listened to my mom when she told me to get the special which was fried noodles with tofu and veggies, but instead I got the veggie burger and fries thinking that it was going to be good since it's a regular item. However, I don't think the person knew how to cook it it because it was really soft and disgusting. I had asked for avocado on it and while my mom had gotten a big slice on her food, I had a tiny green smear. The fries were covered in garlic which I didn't completely understand since the ones my mom had ordered weren't covered in garlic. Overall, the experience I had was disappointing, but the waitress was so friendly though that I wasn't going to complain to her.

Pros: good atmosphere, friendly server

Cons: few vegan options, food tasted disgusting

Their vegan burger is absolutely delicious! They also have a vegan hot dog that I have not tried.
