Sad face.


:(:(:(:( Killed me.


Staying in the fashion of this thread, I have to agree that, YES BLACKBIRD (go Mark!), and has nobody been to Horizons?!! I used to work there and I really, really miss the food. Also, DOS SEGUNDOS (!!!!!!!!!), SU XING, GOLDEN EMPRESS GARDEN (I love you, Sammy), and actually being able to eat at Continental. Sort of.

I know there's supposed to be vegan stuff at naked chocolate, but whenever I go nothing's labeled that way. Grrr.


I feel as though this is a lie. I would know if there was vegan chocolate.....

OH MY GOD has anyone else been to Citi Marketplace??! BEST sandwiches ever.

What do they have? The only time I ever went there was to buy a PPA Smartcard.

Also, I heard some rumblings about Falafel Factory being closed. Can anyone speak to that?

Not sure if this was in reference to Citi Marketplace, but just in case.... they have a lot of stuff. My go-to is the veggie club on rye toast with vegannaise. Mmmmm.. I get it at least once a week, sometimes a few times! It's only $5.99!

Sorry, I did mean Citi Marketplace. Do they have seating or is it just grab and go?

This summer I worked across the street from Citi Marketplace so I went there a lot. I always wanted to like it but it just never did it for me. Like the hoagie with slabs of cold, plain, uncooked tofu and uncooked veggie bacon. And the non-vegan soy cheese, that always gets to me. What do you recommend besides the club?

I used to go to Golden Empress Garden a lot! I miss it. But I can't complain, living in Chinatown now. And of course, much Horizons love! I haven't been in a while sadly.

They have a few places to sit, I've never had a problem finding a seat.

I'm actually in love with the veggie club so I haven't tried anything else. I love that they have coconut water, Primal Strips (yummm), vegan cookies (although overpriced), and a lot of vegan grocery items (again, a little overpriced). I've heard those bean pie things are also vegan and good if you're into that sort of thing.

Citi Marketplace is OK in a pinch. It is a step up from Subway because you can get Vegenaise, avocado, sprouts, etc. on your sandwich..but nothing I'd go out of my way for. There are several tables to sit at.

Oh and The G'core House, everyone's favorite all-vegan cafe, now serves a couple sandwiches! My favorite is the peppered seitan sandwich, which is a thinly-sliced pastrami-style seitan on your choice of bread with vegenaise, mustard, pickles, and spinach. There's also a deli sandwich made with two kinds of tofurky, and a "greenwich" consisting of hummus, cucumber, tomato, avocado, and spinach with a sprinkle of seed mix (a powder with flax and other seedy goodness). And there will be more in the future..

I really want to go to Sprig and Vine but 1) I have no social life and 2) I have no means of transportation.

Ooh, I need to go there. I love New Hope, it's so... quaint. Plus they have an awesome Victorian mortuary shop.

I've been to Sprig & Vine a few times for both brunch and dinner. I recommend both. REALLY REALLY GOOD. For brunch, the Tofu Benedict is a fave and the Tempeh Reuben is also awesome. For dinner, the Cornmeal-Crusted Tempeh is typically a crowd-pleaser. And you can't miss the olive oil cake with orange blossom ice cream for dessert!

It seems like Vegan Treats isn't making as many donuts as before. I wonder why. It's all I'm really interested in!

I keep eating them every time I'm there so there are less when you get there. The boston cremes are ridiculously good!!

I always buy all of them, which is usually 2 by the time I arrive! Stop eating all the donuts! Seriously though, I purposely arrive in the morning when they open and they have such a weak selection. Disappointment!

It's not me! I haven't had a VT boston creme donut in about 3 years.

I'm watching the movie right now!

Govindas on Broad and South gets their order from Vegan Treats on Thursdays, and if you get there early enough you can get doughnuts! My roommate and I go every Thursday!
