Cozy place for quality vegan fare - Edit

I've been to this place three or four times since it opened and it has been getting better and better. It's very small, with just a few tables, but it is right across from a park so there are more place to eat in decent weather. I have not experienced the poor service mentioned in other reviews, so maybe the management is listening. Some of the recipes may be riffs on Isa Chandra Moskowitz recipes, for those who are familiar with her fare. I really enjoyed the BLT sandwich and the broccoli cheddar soup (several times) plus a portobello panini. One time I asked for the soup to be hotter. I love sandwich and soup food, so that is my bias, but I truly enjoy this new addition to the Beacon scene.

Pros: Great sandwich/soup fare, Good, friendly vibe, Nice location across from the water/park

Cons: Small, just a few tables, Kitchen appears small, so not a fast-food place

So so - Edit

I read both reviews before going and always like to be optimistic, but for the 35 minute drive we were pretty disappointed. The menu was quite small and we ended up ordering the creamy broccoli soup and mushroom panini. The soup was not good and not creamy at all. The panini was decent but I could have made it myself, nothing special.
We are always excited to try new vegan places but I wouldn't recommend this place, mostly because of the not so great service. I worked as a waitress and bartender for over 10 years so I'm not one of those people who don't know what it's like to be behind the counter. The person who took my order was the same person I told I'd be right back and when I came in she saw me, and yet I sat there waiting for my food for 10 min when it had been done before I got back. She then proceeded to ask the other staff "is she waiting for something?" She took my order... A little ridiculous. I've never been to a vegan restaurant with unfriendly staff. In fact, all the vegan places I've been to has some of the nicest people I've ever met working there. I hate leaving bad reviews but I thought I should add a third since the two others were polar opposites.

Adorable eatery and delicious food - Edit

I was expecting Vegetalien to disappoint based on previous reviews but my husband and I are still raving about our meal there! We had a GREAT experience. The service was kind and quick. We ordered a portobello panini , Buddha bowl and jack fruit tacos and two beer box juices. Everything was delicious and full of flavor. Small seating area inside , but it was packed, love that it promotes veganism and peace on their front windows. My only critique would be to not use disposable plastic cups for customers dining in - otherwise we were thrilled with our visit

Pros: great vibe, good selections, fun town

Cons: plastic disposable cups used

Disappointed - Edit

I was here a month ago and I was hesitant in writing a review. I decided as a Vegan it’s my position to inform people. I was here with a group of friends and we walked in and no one greeted us and we waited at least 10 minutes when it wasn’t even busy. I could hear people chatting in the kitchen. I finally got up to ask for a menu... staff was very unfriendly, no one was vegan that worked here so they didn’t have a clue what I was talking about when I tried having a conversation with them. I ordered a smoothie and it was awful... we ordered almost everything on the menu and it was okay but nothing to write home about. It wasn’t worth the price and the food took forever to come out... some small girl was walking back and forth acting like a loonie. We all had the same strange feeling about the place. Employees were rude, food okay, I don’t think they know how to make a good smoothie and need a lesson since it is a vegan restaurant. We won’t be back....

Cons: Rude staff, Terrible smoothies, Rude staff
