See I haven't been wowed by any real food since the tasting dinner. I wasn't crazy for the tofu benedict, meh on veggie burger, and meh on omelet. It was pretty cool being able to order an omelet though. Actually the flavors were OK, but I didn't care for the textures. The butterscotch pudding, chocolate pudding pie, and pecan pie have all been amazing though.

I'm with you, I haven't loved any of the dishes, but the desserts are amazing. That said, I think we're probably headed there for lunch tomorrow.

I've soured on this place a bit because they recently served me real cheese on the reuben sandwich. I had already chewed some of it before I realized. This is what bums me out a little bit about places that have both dairy and vegan options, this kind of stuff happens. I would expect them to be more hyper-vigilant about it though, since they cater to so many vegans. A friend of mine was served real eggs in the omelette recently too.

Oh man! Those stories make me all paranoid, Quarantined! I know that not everyone suffers the same, but I'm so afraid if I ate dairy/eggs now, I would have horrendous stomach problems. And some people have allergies, so it can actually be dangerous to accidentally serve someone eggs or dairy. People with Serv Safe certification are supposed to watch an allergen video that has a really sad story about a woman who died after eating a cookie at a wedding (caterer told her it didn't have nuts).

I know, I feel like they should be super aware and strict about it but I'm not getting that vibe, they seem sort of blase about it. They need to tighten that up, maybe partly they are still getting used to being open and the fast pace since it always seems crowded in there. Anyway, until then I stick to the burgers and other things that are naturally vegan.

Yeah, I think they gave me real cheese the first time I went there... ugh.

I didn't realize it until I went back a few weeks ago and noticed that the vegan cheese I ordered on my burger was nothing like the cheese I had gotten when I ordered a grilled cheese (that my also explain why my stomach got angry at me when I had eaten said sandwich...) The burger cheese was definitely the vegan type... it reminded me of the noochy cheese sauce I used to make before Diaya existed.

Despite the mix-up I'll definitely be going back here when I can (especially for the desserts and frappes!) but will be hyper-vigilant about making sure my meal is vegan.

Yeah, I don't think I'd trust them to order anything that's supposed to be cheesy. They just don't seem attentive enough to make sure it's right!

Do they use a homemade cheese for all the vegan options? It might help to know what the vegan cheese they use looks like, what form it takes- whether it's a sauce, block, etc. or can differ depending on the dish. I don't think I've actually ever had a dish with the vegan cheese so I'm not sure. I wanted to try the mac and cheese, but that just seems too risky given their track record, cause I'm not sure I'd be able to tell right away whether it was vegan or not.

They should just just go all vegan and it'd solve the problem- but then again I like taking omnis there and I think if it was all vegan they'd balk at it more.

I know that one of the cheeses that they use is Teese.

They should list it on the menu for each particular dish if they're using different kinds of vegan cheeses. Like they could put in small letters underneath the item, "Substitute Teese vegan cheese" or "Substitute homemade vegan cheese sauce" etc. That way people might have an easier time telling right away if the cheese is vegan or dairy when they get the order. Maybe I'll write and suggest that to them.

For the most part I forgo their homemade cheeze sauce because it's kind of bland, I think. I like Teese though, so now I'm wondering what has it!

I need to go sometime in the evening for dinner. I just haven't been that impressed with any lunch/brunch foods. Desserts are epic though.

I've had their reuben twice now which has the homemade cheese sauce on it. I love it and can tell that it's not real cheese. This is so weird that people have been having problems, everything I've ordered has been great! If you're looking at the veggie burgers, I definitely recommend the Kendell Sq.

yeah if I'd have known it came with a cheese sauce I would've been able to tell right away that it was dairy cheese that I got, but I just assumed it was a slice of teese or something. Love the Kendall Sq. burger too, those onion rings are insane.
