I have been DYING to try this Vegan spot, so I was thrilled when my vegan friend came to visit from New York - we headed straight over there for lunch.
She asked the guy behind the counter if everything was vegan - and he sort of looked her up and down and said to her kind of like she was not all that bright (and I have to agree with her, it WAS kind of snippy) "it's all PLANT-BASED". So she said, well, what do you mean? do you mean it's all vegan? And he sort of sighed and said "if that's what you want to call it." She and I just looked at eachother. Are we missing something? Is the word Vegan not really acceptable here??? Is it frowned upon to ask if something is vegan? She was a little put off - all she was trying to find out was if there were any animal products used at all and I don't understand why he had to respond like that. So ok, not off to a good start.
Anyway.... moving on. My friend ordered some of the soup, a cup (very small bowl) and it was so spicy that she only had a few spoonsfull - I wish they'd mentioned that it was spicy, she would not have ordered it. She said it was very good, but she doesn't like spicy things so she didn't want to finish it. So if you like spicy soups, then I'm sure it would have been excellent.
I ordered the humus wrap which looked lovely but there was literally a tiny shmear of humus on the bottom of the wrap - not enough to even taste (although I pulled some of the greens out just to check and see if there was humus in the wrap - there was - but it certainly was the absolute bare minimum that can be put on a wrap. It had plenty of sprouts and greens in it, but you could hardly call it a humus and veggie wrap. I can honestly say that I did not taste any humus and visually only saw just a tiny thin strip on the bottom of the wrap. Would I pay $8 for that again? no. I was looking forward to a nice delicious wrap with humus in it - and what I got was a veggie wrap with half a teaspoon of humus in it. Not what I had been hoping for at all.
I had a bottled iced tea which was lovely for $2.50, my friend had a coconut yoghurt which was OUTSTANDING, with fruit and nuts, and also had a cookie - the total was $26 which I thought high for iced tea, a yoghurt, a disappointing hummus/veggie wrap and a cup of soup and a cookie. She left most of her soup, and I didn't care for it either (too spicy or peppery), and overall I just left very disappointed. I had been so excited to try this place, after reading the great reviews - I thought this is going to be my go-to place, because we VEGANS and PLANT-BASED FOOD LOVERS desperately need more options and I live literally 5 minutes away. It doesn't come anywhere close to The Green Wave Cafe just off West Broward Boulevard - which is so good that even my non-vegan husband loves going there - Green Bar, sorry, but you were disappointing and pricey I doubt I'll be back.
