Has anyone else been here? My first encounter with them was at this year's Art Star Craft Bazaar (Which was a blast). They are a vegetarian/vegan friendly cafe that has wraps, sandwiches, smoothies, and coffee. I don't think they have a website but here is their Yelp page.

http://www.yelp.com/biz/soy-cafe-philadelphia

If I remember correctly we tried the Soy Wrap.
(Soy Wrap soy chicken or beef, wasabi hummus, cucumber, avocado, carrot, sesame)

And the Funky Monkey Smoothie, with maple syrup substituting the honey.
(Funky Monkey banana, peanut butter, oatmeal, soymilk, honey)

Menu:
http://philadelphia.menupages.com/resta ... -cafe/menu

I think the actual menu noted which items were vegan and the staff was helpful with that too.

I live near Soy Cafe and I like that they make their own soy milk. I'm there a few times a week for a latte or a quick lunch.

The only thing that bothers me is that they use the Veggie Slices for their cheese, which has casein. I usually get hummus instead of cheese for any of the wraps/sandwiches.

I really love their tofu salad with ginger dressing and the eggplant wrap is very good. I have been meaning to try their Mr. Bean dish, which is slow-cooked soy beans served with a salad and soy cheese toast, but I feel crazy asking them to put hummus on the toast. Although hummus toast is GREAT.

If anyone ever wants to meet up for lunch there, I'm in.

I went there once specifically to get the soy dots and they told me their machine was broken and they would probably never fix it. So I've never been back (even though I live two doors down).

Oh no, that's frustrating! What are soy dots? Are they supposed to be like a vegan Dip-N-Dots?

They are supposed to be these bite size dots that taste like belgian waffles. I was SO excited to try them! Maybe if enough people demand them they will fix their machine!

What??! Really? My friend and I were so excited to go there specifically because we'd heard about their waffle dots thingy!
