  • Review by alf-redo on April 3, 2010:

  • I've already rated but I wanted to add that I really love their soy chai latte. Most coffee shops tend to add honey, syrup or sweetener and use already brewed tea but at S'Nice it comes with the tea bag in it (loose tea/not pre bagged) and no fake overly sweet stuff, though of course you could add your own.

  • Horrible service. I often leave here feeling a bit flustered and grumpy because the staff so often have a begrudged attitude. Holier-than-though. Great vegan options. Steer clear of the sandwiches though.

  • I really like this place - great outdoor area and the sandwiches are awesome (especially the smoked tempeh - though rarely enough avocado- and the panini). One complaint is that to get veggies instead of salad is too expensive - the sandwiches are already a bit pricey. Their coffee is really good too though I think the drink where they add soy cream to it is a little too thin.

  • The new lemon blueberry muffin is the best muffin in the vegan muffin wars! So many blueberries! Just the right amount of lemon! I need more!

  • Review by unwiredben on October 8, 2008:

  • I've eaten here twice and been very happy with my meals both times. The first was a buffalo "chicken" wrap with celery, blue cheese dressing, and carrots. It was reasonable spicy, and the seitan was nice and chewy. The second time, I had a Philly-style seitan sandwich which had a nice mix of onions and peppers. My fiancee had their cauliflower wrap which reminded me of a lightly spiced Indian recipe.

  • Review by sewster on October 8, 2008:

  • Well, I gave this place 3 tries, and only because I really wanted them to be good, and I was so excited about them being in the neighborhood. 2 times I wound up with an upset stomach after eating there; last night my husband wound up with the upset stomach. So sorry guys, not again.

  • Review by thejway on September 12, 2008:

  • This location is more spacious and yet feels snug in the Park Slope community. The menu is essentially the same as the first location but the Brooklyn spot offers soups too, something I don't think (as of this writing) the Manhattan location has. The atmosphere is chill and friendly. I like that you don't wait long for your food.

  • Review by debya on August 19, 2008:

  • A smart guest in town asked if the BBQ Seitan, which is listed as vegan, contained any honey in the sauce. It does contain honey! WARNING: NOT VEGAN. We told them it's not vegan. How soon will it be before they remove the V for vegan after the sandwich listing?
  • Review by the_food_prude on July 18, 2008:

  • Def a good place and quickly becoming one of my faves in brooklyn...

    the food is very good depending on what you get. the reuben was a miss but the tofu panini and and the sesame chic where hits. bbq seitan hero is a winner too.

    the place does do a fair amount of fake meat, but its tvp. there are straight up veg options too.

    the atmosphere is good but prefer the west village one. however, there's only so much that can be done with the space, layout wise.

    the service is always super friendly, prompt. plus they get the 'bring your own container' philosophy. love the attitude there.

    overall snice (both locations) are a hit--great idea with a simple menu and set pricing, the more i try, the more i like.

  • Review by susie on June 15, 2008:

  • Let me preface this by saying: yet, it is a super lovely space, the staff is great, the sandwiches are really tasty (though I admit that I don't go for the club anymore after being burned by a couple soggy slim ones) and the broccoli, oh sweet god the delicious broccoli... But that VitaSoy is some vile stuff. It's great that they're all proud of being vegan and shit, but maybe they should spend more time on making their soymilk not taste grossly beany and bitter and stereotypically, well, soy-y.

    To be fair, I really like the VitaSoy Smooth Vanilla flavor. I'm not sure which one 'sNice uses (I think it's plain/unsweetened), but I drink a lot of coffee, and I like it pretty milky and, y'know, drinkable, so this is a serious dealbreaker for me.

  • This place is adorable! And the food is great! The staff is very friendly, the atmosphere is very cozy and there were quite a few vegan sandwiches that you can't get anywhere else. I'll definitely be back next time I'm visiting New York.

  • Review by BankBank on June 9, 2008:

  • After eating at the w. village location forever, I rode my bike out to try the park slope outpost. Nowhere near as busy (on a weekday evening), the woman at the counter suggested I try the burrito (pretty good) and an arnold palmer (AWESOME). Seems just as good as the other location.

  • Review by champurrado on April 4, 2008:

  • Normally I wouldn't leave a negative review, but this place has such a high rating that I feel compelled to add my opinion. It’s true that the staff is surprisingly competent and kind, but I thought the food was a real disappointment. First off, for anyone who doesn’t know, ‘Snice serves sandwiches/wraps, a few salads and sides, and one soup. The problem, though, was that nothing I tried was really worth eating. The Thai salad was fine, but not great. The pot pie wrap tasted gloopy, salty, and processed, almost to the point of being inedible. The tofu club was a complete embarrassment, consisting of tofu slathered in thousand island dressing and a handful of bacos (yes, bacos) thrown between three pieces of cold toast. Many of their sandwiches rely heavily on fake meat and processed products. If this isn't your cup of tea, then you may want to skip it, or at least eat beforehand and just go for coffee.

  • Review by Roseann Marulli Rodriguez on March 23, 2008:

  • I finally ate there last night, and it did not disappoint. My omni friend had the Cuban, I had the meatball sub (he couldn't believe how authentic the meatballs tasted), and we shared a combo of sides (broccoli in garlic and oil, bulgur with lentils, and herbed potatoes). Everything was delicious! The place is much prettier and cozier than the Manhattan location (not to mention closer), and the waitstaff couldn't have been friendlier, nicer or more knowledgeable. Oh, and we had cupcakes for dessert! I'm a purist, so I went for vanilla on vanilla, and it was so rich and sweet (perhaps just a tad too sweet, but not enough to make me not get another one next time). I am one happy camper that 'Snice is in the hood.

  • Re: mono1's review:

    I've only seen them using VitaSoy, which I consider the best soy milk available. (Plus, VitaSoy waves its vegan flag proudly unlike some other brands.) Personally, I'd be displeased if 'sNice got rid of the VitaSoy.

    (I've already left a review, so I'll refrain from using the rating scale again.)
  • Review by mono1 on March 16, 2008:

  • ok, I agree for the most part, especially about the friendly staff, but I think there are a few kinks they still have to work out re: the food... all minor but nonetheless. I think it is really important that a veg restaurant use quality soy milk and they definitely use the cheap stuff, and it tastes bad in coffee and lattes. The oatmeal was dry (had to ask for them to add some milk) as are the apple bran muffins. Finally I would say that their coffee mugs are ABSURDLY small, and if you order anything larger, you get it in a glass, which for lovers of cozy sunday morning coffee is a bit of a disappointment. All of the sandwiches I've had, however, are great. At least I hope they upgrade the soy (and offer some agave at the sweetener stand!)

  • Review by AJ on March 15, 2008:

  • Everything about this place is amazing. The staff are extremely friendly and quick. The food, as expected, is to die for...or close to it. The location is perfect (it'll be right across from the small farmer's market in the summer) and the space is beautiful. What can I say? I have a feeling that I will be eating out in the slope a lot more often now than I used to...AND! I finally have a great incentive to do laundry (my laundromat is next door). Okay, that last thing may not apply to everyone, but I'm really pumped about it.

  • Review by Jared on March 9, 2008:

  • The best thing that has ever happened to Park Slope. All of the vegan sandwiches are great, and while the cupcakes may look like just simple vanilla and/or chocolate, they are the perfect combination of moist and sweet. Amazing..

  • Review by lucky on March 7, 2008:

  • After much anticipation, S'nice has flung open it's doors to the vegan public! I suppose the non-vegan public is allowed in too. Brighter and (obviously) newer than the Manhattan location, the quality of the food and the laid-back atmosphere remain (thankfully) unchanged. My new favorite eatery in the slope!

  • Review by debya on March 7, 2008:

  • At long last, my prayers have been answered and 'sNice has opened. The same great sandwiches as the Manhattan shop, prepared in the same loving manner. The people who birthed 'sNice are super nice and have created a true vegan-friendly establishment in Brooklyn. I'm psyched for the summer months when I'll pick up a sandwich and go sit in the park across the way. (Or take it to the bar across the street.)

  • Finally, Park Slope has become a neighborhood! All the amazing sandwiches we've come to expect from 'snice in a beautiful wood and steel kind of stylish setting. Every other cafe on 5th ave will have to step up their game.
