Great Vegan Options - Edit

I had an order of egg rolls (I confirmed they are vegan spring rolls despite the name), the vegetable stir-fry, potato taquitos (vegan when ordered with no cheese) and a slice of vegan chocolate cake. Everything was excellent amd tasted great. The cake was the exception. It tasted like spice cake vs chocolate and was a bit dry. The servers were extremely nice and went over every vegan option available. Would recommend.

Pros: Great vegan options, friendly staff

Cons: tad pricey

The Press imPRESSed Me! - Edit

Every time I have gone, I have always enjoyed myself. It does get pretty loud at night but they do have live music that is fun to hear. It is defiantly a nicer sit down kind of restaurant with cloth napkins. So not somewhere terrible fast or cheap but it is worth the time and money. It is a great place to go with those stubborn meat eaters in your life. They have some nice local beers, and ethicly made food.

On to the food: I am gaga about the taco salad. I regret when I don't get it. The vegan chilli is a nice light snack. Lastly, the vegan chocolate cake is awesome. It has a raspberry drizzle on top. A large reason why I go is for the cake. Yummy!

Pros: The Vegan Chocolate Cake, Ethically made food

Cons: Can be loud at night, Smaller lunch menu, Not too many vegan options

Lots of Nice Vegan Options - Edit

The Press is located in the cutest little town, so if you're traveling, definitely stop here just for a look at the shops.

The restaurant itself is an offbeat artistic restaurant, frequented by the college community in town (staff and students). They often have live music or performances, and there are some great vegan options. They have a vegan chili, salads, cake, and veggie burger that is probably my favorite. They also have a steamed vegetable and rice plate that you can customize, that is really nice if you're trying to stay healthy. There are a lot of vegetarian items as well, my husbands favorites are the vegetarian taquitos. Definitely worth a visit, you wont be disappointed. And try the fries, they have a lot of different types of potatoes in there and it's a nice little change. Sometimes when they have no servers come in, they need a brush up on vegan options, other times the servers are vegan, so if you're wondering about a menu item make sure to ask. It's also more busy at night and you may need a reservation. I try to go for lunch to beat the crowds.

Pros: Great food, Great atmosphere, Nice Community

Cons: Serves Meat, Can get crowded

very nice and cozy place - Edit

Recommended. Few vegan and vegetarian options on the menu. Good for going out with people that unfortunately still eat dead animals.

Pros: vegan options

Excellent lunch - Edit

My husband and I visited this restaurant on Saturday afternoon. They have inside seating and two tables outside in front. My husband ordered a chicken burrito as he is not a vegan. I am a vegan and found several vegan-friendly items on the menu. The burrito was huge and full of chicken, rice, and black beans. I ordered an avocado and alfalfa sprout sandwich with chipolte-miso spread on squaw bread. It is usually served toasted but I asked to have it left untoasted. The sandwich and burrito came with side salad, soup or "press fries" which were a trio of potatoes. My only complaint was my squaw bread was a little dry, possibly stale. I sent it back and got a softer, fresher piece of bread. We would definitely return to this restaurant in the future.

Pros: reasonable price, excellent food, large portions

Cons: squaw bread was a little stale
