  • Review by tofu_hunter on January 23, 2011:

  • The vegan brunch option was practically inedible. They used some nasty kind of vegan cheese that tasted like pure chemicals. All the mimosas certainly didn't help, but I felt like I was going to horf after. TWO BIG VEGAN THUMBS DOWN.
    (My omni friend didn't like what she had, either.)
