I don't see any other threads on this place. I just ate there Sunday, and loooved the Cheesesteak, Beanball sub, and sweet potato pie. The sweet potato fries were pretty good too. They assured me everything was vegan.

Any other fans of this place? I'm wondering how I could possibly recreate that sweet potato pie at home. It was so light/coconutty and possibly maybe some citrus in there, not really like pumpkin pie-ish...

The carrot-tuna sandwich is pretty good. I havent tried any of the other things. I don't eat there often though, despite them being vegetarian, I have a feeling they're not very vegan friendly. My guy got the meatball sandwich once, we specifically said vegan, but it had parm cheese on it. Ugh.

I used to love this place! After being reassured many times that the chicken salad sandwich was vegan, I continued to order it. It is just so..tender, and delicious, and huge! But, 1.5 or so years ago, they had a new menu made with vegan items marked. The chicken salad sandwich was not marked as vegan. Meh. The carrot tuna is OK too, but I can't really go there anyone knowing that they lied to me.

Also, it is kind of expensive. Also, one time they lost my order right before the lunch rush and I had to remind them three times and it took almost 45 minutes to get my goddamn sandwich.

Darn. Honestly I was a bit worried about the veganness of things, and posted here with some fear I'd hear stories just like this. There was white stuff in the beanball sub and I just thought it was fake parm since I specifically asked them if it was vegan and said vegan like 5 times when I made my order. I hope it wasn't real parm!! Yuck. That's really not cool if they're dishonest.

id bet they use the fake parm if they specifically told you that.

I've only ever had their quiche, which is GROSS. Yellow sponge on a crust.
