Review by alf-redo on April 3, 2010:
- I was stuck at Animal Kind for a while and this was the closest place. They are really pushing the 'vegan' stuff - everything on their chalkboard was 'vegan'.
I ordered the *new* vegan breakfast and an iced green tea. Tea was gross and waited a while for the food. I'm still a bit unclear as to what is in the breakfast because the menu said potatoes, tofu scramble, tempeh bacon, and i think toast. It came minus potatoes and with salad (not a prob for me, but unclear). Toast burnt, salad of only greens and a couple of carrot slivers, very limp bacon, bland bland bland tofu and they only had salt and pepper.
If I was stuck in that area I would possibly go back but try a sandwich and coffee. The only baked good seemed to be some kind of granola bar that looked pretty pathetic next to the other non vegan muffins, scones, and croissants.
Overall better than Second Helpings and S'Nice is a bit of a walk while waiting for Alfie to finish up his haircut.
Atmosphere: small as hell and full of people on laptops and little kids (seriously 5 under 5 within 30 minutes). A three for having free wifi and a bench outside for the claustrophobic.

- I used to happily eat the many vegan options at this place with confidence, then they accidentally served me a vegan breakfast tofu wrap with cheddar. As a result, this place makes me nervous. You might have better luck though.
