Huge surprise next to a concert venue - Edit

My husband and I were definitely not expecting to find vegan options in Mesa. We were pleasantly surprised to find Volstead connected to the venue we were attending a concert at. The staff was very friendly and the items are clearly denoted. They serve mostly what I would consider comfort food, sandwiches and soup.. totally up my alley.

Pros: Vegan options

Cons: One bathroom

Not Much to Offer - Edit

This place has switched up things a few times since they've opened. They started with offering a variety of fancy grilled cheese sandwiches. I have never liked cheese, so this option didn't appeal to me. Then they began offering a sandwich of the month (which had some great features), but soon stopped. Karaoke Fridays with a special flavor of vegan wings were a thing for a while, and I was really excited for this, but this too was over before I knew it.

Soul Food Saturdays is another thing of the past. They had fried "chicken", greens, and red beans & rice. The fried "chicken" is not at all what I expected; it was more like chicken nuggets. The greens were not southern greens, but they gave it a nice try. The red beans & rice were pretty decent.

I had a delicious strawberry lemonade cupcake. It was sweet and very moist. I never see them advertising cupcakes on their social media pages anymore, so I am not sure what happened.

When I was there on Soul Food Saturday, there was a man singing and playing his guitar live. He had an amazing voice and it was the perfect background accompaniment to my dine-in lunch. I don't know if they still offer the live entertainment.

They offer vegan donuts, courtesy of Welcome Chicken & Donuts. They also offer bagel sandwiches for breakfast.

The employees were very nice, but the owner was cold and unfriendly.

Cons: not a lot of options

Great place for a quick and tasty vegan meal - Edit

Great place for a quick, no fuss meal. On our most recent trip, we both got the Squawker Texas Ranger with the deli side of the day. The side was a chipotle black bean and sweet potato salad. It was bean-forward with a sweet and smoky finish from the sweet potato and chipotle. The sandwiches were crispy and served on a great sourdough bread. They were filling and tasty. They were out of provolone but substituted pepper jack instead which added nicely to the mildly spicy sandwich. Everything on the menu is vegan by default but they can sub non-vegan cheese.

Everything can be made vegan - Edit

Everything here can be made vegan. They have a good selection of really delicious sandwiches that you can add vegan meats on to as well. They typically have breakfast specials and their coffee is really good and inexpensive.

Pros: vegan mac n cheese, homemade jam, coffee
