I bought a Groupon for this place months ago and finally got around to cashing it in a few days before it was set to expire.
Originally I was excited to see a tofu scramble on the breakfast menu but realized after purchasing and reading the fine print that you couldn’t go for breakfast on the weekends which was my original plan for spending the Groupon. Ah well, going for a nice junk food dinner was just as fun.
I ended up getting an “ultimate” vegan grilled cheese to which I added avocado and spinach. It came with fries that were nice and crisp. Yummy. I also got a spinach salad with balsamic dressing.
The sandwich was great! Made with classic blend cheddar-style and mozzarella-style Daiya shreds. I actually had to do a double take! I almost thought it was the real thing! The bread was really nice too, a hearty multigrain that was perfectly toasted. That was definitely a great sandwich and I would go back and get another one if I was in the neighbourhood again.
Alcohol wasn’t included in the Groupon but I ended up getting a couple of beers anyway – not a bad draught list, I decided on an Amsterdam blonde which was great.
Service was good, the wait staff came around often enough to make sure we were doing well but not too often that we were getting interrupted.
The restaurant itself is on the small side, but I like small spaces, and I thought it was pretty cute. We sat at one of the booths along the wall and it was very cozy and private.
The only problem I had was that one of the bathrooms seemed to be out of order without warning! There was no sign on the door but the toilet was almost overflowing in there. Yikes. Super not cool but I’m sure it was probably something that was fixed promptly.
Overall I might go back to this little place and recommend to a friend, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drag someone here unless I was REALLY in the mood for another grilled cheese. The menu was a little small but I was very pleased that they at least had something vegan on it.
My friend tried the veggie burger and said it was pretty good as well.
