Serves meat, vegan options available. Has a separate vegetarian menu on its website, and one could request seitan as a substitute a menu item. Weekend brunch til 2:30pm. Staff is vegan-knowledgeable; just let them know. Uses produce from local farms.

Not so good for a vegan - Edit

Do not be fooled by the online menu, this restaurant is not as vegan friendly as it claims on the website. The waitress said it was no problem for the chef to make my boyfriend and I vegan dishes. However, when they served our meals both dishes had dairy items on them. The manager came over and apologized as well as the waitress and fixed the issue. The vegan mock duck was really good but the staff couldn't even tell me what it was made of. The waitress first told me the chef makes the mock duck in house... but then the manager explained to me that it was made of soy and "other things" and comes in a can. It was surprisingly good but I wish that the staff knew more about the vegan items and options.

Pros: Peanut BBQ mock duck

Cons: Overpriced, Not knowledgeable about vegan foods, Cramped seating

Great Atomoshpere, Tasty Food! - Edit

The Tortilla Press is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Collingswood, if not of all time. It has a very warm, cozy feel with lots of original artwork hung on the walls and a friendly staff.

While their main menu might not seem to have a lot of veggie/vegan options, if you look at their vegetarian menu online or simply tell the waiter/waitress about your dietary restrictions, you'll find that there are actually quite a few, though there are less if you are vegan. But the several they do have are worth eating time and time again. The best is the Mock Duck Sandwich with a mouth-watering Peanut Butter BBQ sauce. It's supposed to be like a pulled-pork sandwich and is served with a side of tasty sweet potato fries. For dinner, the seitan is served on it's own as a platter with rice a roasted veggies, which is also good in its own way, but I prefer the sandwich. They also have a delicious Artichoke and Black Bean Burrito. Those two dishes are so good that right now, they are the only two I've tried, but I do look forward to trying their other options. Also,while the complimentary tortillas and dips are good, the warm, thick tortillas sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar they serve in the morning are to die for!

Pros: Atmosphere, Well-Knowledged Staff , Fantastic Vegan Options
