Review by Minion of Seitan on September 20, 2009:
- Went there for the first time today - there was exactly one vegan dessert remaining in the whole store, a chocolate/coconut cupcake. It was good but not great - clearly not fresh and it had dried out quite a bit. But still edible :-). I hope they have a wider selection of vegan items at other times since there is a neon sign saying "vegan cupcakes" in the front window.
The counter help did not know what was vegan and had to make a phone call at our request - nothing is labeled (again, annoying given the neon sign!). Super nice and friendly though.
The space is cute and they have wifi.
