Review by champurrado on May 24, 2011:
- The burritos are so salty they're inedible. None of us could finish ours (which is crazy--we never do that!). Desserts are better but also strangely salty. Basically everything is done super cheaply. Sandwiches are store-bought wonder bread style slices with tofutti cheese slices and some meat analogue. Burritos use TVP soaked in gross salty broth for all the 'meat' fillings. TVP chunks and tofutti slices are just not really acceptable for a vegan restaurant in NYC in 2011. I'm really hoping they're able to step it up with higher quality ingredients as they have more success. In the mean time, I'd recommend buying the sweets but skipping the other stuff.

- Yummy treats and food. I really like the atmosphere! & they made a special sandwhich for me when what I wanted wasn't on the menu

- I have been here twice, just to pick up desserts to go, and I have been thoroughly impressed each time! Today I got some doughnuts and my friend and I were amazed at the perfect texture. Just like the last non-vegan doughnut I had in 1996. Okay, it's been a while, but this was a great vegan doughnut.
I've never tried the savory food, but the cupcakes, cookies, tarts, and doughnuts have always been wonderful. There's not much atmosphere of which to speak, but I have had great service and conversation with the owner each time I went.

- I was super excited when Livingsocial had a deal. Pay $10, get $20 worth of food! I bought cupcakes, pretzel sticks dipped in chocolate, a donut... None of it was particularly amazing. I only finished the chocolate cupcake. Everything else I threw out after one bite. The pretzel sticks were stale, the chocolate white (old). I was very disappointed and will most likely not return soon.
The staff seemed bored and didn't really care. The atmosphere was strange: Random burrito bar in the corner, hand-written posterboards for menus, no signage on baked goods, so I had to guess what everything was...
I think as a vegan place you have to try even harder to be amazing, so you can win non-vegans over. This place clearly needs to work on that.

- So disappointed; I've gone here twice so far and have not been impressed.
The owner doesn't seem to smile, the staff seems bored, and the stuff I've tried has been so-so, bordering on "what people think vegan food tastes like".
Eventually I'll return; hopefully I'll have my mind changed. But for now? Nope. Too many other fantastic places around.
