Review by JonG on August 6, 2008:
- I stopped going here a few years ago after the guy behind the counter yelled at me and my boyfriend for kissing (as in a peck, not with tongue) in the store. Overpriced, homophobic, and surrounded by better options.
Review by JamesR on August 5, 2008:
- I second the previous review. I've seen the guys using morningstar farms bacon on sandwiches that list "vegan bacon", and they don't seem to care. Same with the "vegan cheese", it's not vegan at all. Still, they make a few things that are safe, most of the sandwiches that use the various "chicken" salads are okay, and if you pay attention you can just ask for the sandwiches without the offending ingredients. They food is quite expensive, but if you're in the neighborhood it might be worth a stop. They should definitely stop referring to the sandwiches as vegan.
Review by colleenf111 on August 4, 2008:
- THIS PLACE IS NOT VEGAN. I saw the guy at the grill using Morningstar Farms bacon so I asked him if that was what he was using to make my 'vegan' sandwich. He said yes. I told him that that bacon is not vegan. He said "I know. They told me to say it was vegan." He was very nonchalant and un-apologetic. I was so angry that I left without asking more about this policy of lying about being vegan. Do not eat here if you care about being vegan.
