Serves meat, vegan options available. Seasonal opening - closed in Winter. Surprisingly, this place amidst Mid/Outer Cape restaurants advertising seafood, fish and chips, offers vegan options, including a Becky's vegan bowl, garlic herb tofu saute, and sides like roasted sweet potato, steamed green beans, wilted spinach, brown rice blend, chef's vegetables. Tofu can be substituted into the other non-veg dishes as the protein. Est. since 1980.

Delightful! 4+ - Edit

We ate at Van Rensselaer's passing by, and the experience was a complete joy from start to finish. The hosting staff were friendly, engaging and helpful. Our server was attentive and personable, and knew about vegan options. There was only one option on the menu already vegan, which I ordered- the Tofu Provencal- but there were many ways to order tofu, brown rice, and vegetables prepared differently. We arrived in time for the early bird special- just walk in the door before 5:30- and so a trip to the salad bar came with the meal. The salad bar had raw kale salad with sesame miso dressing, marinated mushrooms, and chickpeas among other vegetable choices. We were told that the restaurant is very proud to serve vegan meals, and is incorporating more vegan focus into the breakfast menu. We can't wait to return!

Pros: Everything! service, quality, price, Excellent tofu options, Easy to order vegan

Good vegan food with a nice ambiance - Edit

In addition to two veg/vegan entries, they will prepare their signature dishes with tofu (nicely seasoned) instead of fish. It's a sit down place with nice ambiance. Not a lot of vegan options in the mid-cape, this is a nice one.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff

Cons: it's a seafood place, at heart

Hat's off - Edit

So nice to have a restaurant in Wellfleet that has specifically stated vegan options. Not a lot of choices but nonetheless, there are vegan choices. Breakfast this morning was a tofu mushroom and spinach dish served with a fruit salad and whole grain toast. This was great considering the only other option I usually find when eating out for breakfast is oatmeal.
Tofu seems to be their go-to vegan option for dinner as well. They have a wonderful salad bar with dinner that helps make the tofu main course a little more appealing.
Everyone is very accommodating.
Great place to eat if you're with a group of mixed vegans and non-vegans. All can find something to eat here.

Pros: Vegan options, Accommodating staff, Great salad bar

Cons: Tofu seems to be the vegan option, Not too creative but good food
