First Review by Lunch Box

not worth the price - Edit

I got the plant burger which was pretty good except i didn't really like the overly sour vegan aioli which they put more than enough of in my sandwich. The salad was definitely not worth $12 just a whole lot of arugula basically. And let me talk about the smoothies, they were amazingly delicious, however $9.25?!?!? The total for two people was around 50 bucks which is more than I would like to pay.

Pros: good smoothies, plant burger

Cons: too much aioli, overpriced, salad

Veggie Burger and Protein smoothie - Edit

Serves organic cafe faire. I came for the veggie burger which was made with lentil, mushrooms, tomato, beets, cashew and bulgar wheat. Served with side salad and country style potatoes. I also opted for focaccia bread. For drinks, I ordered a protein smoothie which had bananas, blueberries, hemp protein and almond butter. It was refreshing for a hot day.

Pros: Attentive staff , Location, Nice gluten free and veg option

Cons: Expensive, Noisy

Delicious veggie burger (vegan) - Edit

I am so surprised about the bad reviews, we went there 2 times and each time had a great experience. Could it be they improved meanwhile?
Each time ordered the same thing: the veggie burger madness with beetroot bum :)
It comes with potato wedges, fresh salad and pickled cauliflower. You have 3 choices of bread - we tried the regular bum and sandwich bread, but they also offer whole grain bread.

The burger is a bit pricey tough 13.5$ without tax , but it's a full meal, and it's a restaurant not a fast food.

We also tried their soup of the day once and the strawberry smoothie with almond milk, which was to die for. The soup was ok-ish, but not that good.

We will become regular customers for sure.

Trendy Trash - Edit

I guess the Source SF and Source Mini spoiled me. The veggie burger just does not compare.

I can get something better at Safeway!

Pros: Good location

Cons: Their veggie burger is very bad

Save your money - Edit

I ordered "The plant burger" vegan. It came with cheese on it. I sent it back. I was surprised at how fast the "new" cheese less burger came out. That's because they did not make he a new burger but simply peeled off the cheese.
How do I know this? They didn't peel it all the way off.

The service in general is deplorable. I've visited the plant several times since they opened and that was the last straw.

Cons: Bad Service, Very high prices, Sloppy
