Hipster hangout with great vegan food & loud music - Edit

They have the best chutney I have ever had!! If I could buy a jar to take home I would. I also love their falafel, hummus, and the tea selection is great (just make sure you remove honey and replace the milk with soy if you're vegan) I tried a vegan brownie on my last trip and the 3 other people that were with me agreed that it was the worst brownie they ever had. Said brownie was chalky, gritty like sand, and flavorless. I'm just going to chalk that up to a bad batch, as every other vegan item I've tried has been tasty. They have bands that play pretty regularly and some are really good! Be forewarned that if you arrive before a band is set to play and you're seated near the stage you will be asked to move so they can set up. This is only an issue if the place is packed, in which case you may find yourself without a seat as I did on one occasion. Overall it's a great place to grab a reasonably priced bite to eat and the seating is pretty comfortable.

Pros: Good food , Decent prices

Cool - Edit

Grungy Flower Child decor. Great mezza plate, marinated tofu and veggies in teff wrap, felafel, kotma with rice. Friendly and helpful staff Vegan and GF options are clearly listed on the men. Good size portions, very reasonable prices.

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, Food nicely prepared and seasoned, Generous portions

Cons: Terrible lighting made it hard to see, Up a flight of steep stairs, They also offer flavored hookahs (yuck)

Yummy falafel! - Edit

First time here and was very relieved at the many vegan options! Started with the hummus platter which was very tasty. Had the falafel wrap with a salad on the side. Was very surprised at how deli oh the falafel was and plenty of food to eat! Would definitely come back!

Pros: options , quite, nice staff

Wonderful establishment - Edit

I frequent the Bazaar often and it is a wonderful place to hang out and drink amazing teas. The Tea Bazaar also has a wonderful veggie/vegan menu, (their vegan cake is to DIE FOR!!!). Everyone that works there are really cool and down to earth people. I HIGHLY recommend going to the Tea Bazaar, especially with your friends.

Pros: great tea, awesome environment, good show venue

Cons: can get pretty noisy sometimes

Delicious and awesome place to hang out! - Edit

I truly love this place. It is a great place to bring a friend to unwind. The seating is comfortable and the decor is bohemian. They have this awesome "twisted branch" tree that scales the wall and has nooks in it!
The food...they do serve fish and dairy and eggs. But, often they have this incredible vegan chocolate cake (also gluten free I believe) and it is amazing. Did I mention it's amazing?
It is.
Plus, they have vegan entrees which are filling and scrumptious, too!
Of course, they have many kinds of tea that will blow your mind with their flavor punch and creativity.

Pros: Vegan cake!, Fabulous vegan entrees, Great atmosphere

Cons: Not all vegan, Sometimes they don't have the cake!, Pricey
