|The sign was actually from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.|
|Outdoor dining area. Was better lit than the picture shows.|
|It looks like there's not much seating but when you turn the corner ...|
|there's a whole other room. I like a place that doesn't cram in tables, (a la NY "bistro"), and even has room, and the philosophy, for a couch!|
|I must have missed the bake sale as that counter was pretty empty. Good thing I'm not a dessert person. No really, I'm not. Well, a vegan Mississippi Mud Pie might be nice.|
|Big menu board. Must get a lot of old people like me who can't see anymore. Very friendly and helpful service too!!|
And perhaps the most important part of the meal, (just kidding. No I'm not), beer. How nice to just look at the beers and get whichever one I wanted knowing they were vegan. I could choose any one I wanted. And there were 2 to choose from! Didn't even have to break out my iPhone to look at barnivore.com.
The Spinach Salad had an orange ginger dressing. I tasted a soft heat from the ginger but didn't taste orange. It was more like a ginger soy vinaigrette. The salad itself was made up of fresh spinach with red onions, nuts and raisins. It was fresh and bright and as much as I can say about a salad, it was a good one and I actually enjoyed eating it because I liked it, not because I hear a voice in my head saying, "Eat your spinach!"
|As you can also see, number 25 was my lucky number.|
I wasn't a big fan of the mashed mashed and gravy. It wasn't bad or off but I'd say it tasted "vegan." Perhaps I was looking for a darker mushroomy gravy or a more chickeny one. I liked the rustic chunk with skins of the potatoes . Ah, what the heck, I finished them too.
|There were actually 2 burgers in the ciabatta.|
|Better shot of the coleslaw and potatoes.|
I loved the flavor of the burger. I got some nice bites of seared crust on the burger but much of that, like any soft veggie burger, got a little lost in the bread crust.
