    Vegetarian (and vegan) cheesesteaks and sandwiches that rival Gianna's in price, but are less greasy and arguably better. Vegan desserts are also available, including an amazing pumpkin cheesecake. Read more

    I love their vegan options. The "chicken" cheesesteak is the best. The food is pricy but it's worth it.

    Public service announcement!: This is not the veg cheesesteak spot on the corner! That's Govinda's To Go. If you go upstairs from Govinda's To Go, you will find this upscale, mostly vegan restaurant.

    For an extra $2.50 you can get twice the soy meat on your chicken cheesesteak and split it with a friend! At almost 9 dollars a hoagie, who needs all that extra bread anyway?

    Had the "chicken" burger with soy cheese... It wasn't bad at all. Very tasty. The "chicken" flatbread was amazing too. Cookies were... Meh.

    the vegan chicken cheesesteak is great. if you're looking for what they use, this is VERY similar (if not exactly what they use) can get it at whole foods

    Service is ALWAYS atrocious. You can expect to wait 20 minutes to place an order and another thirty for your food. They have a lot of good stuff, but..

    Don't bother eating here if John C. Reilly is cooking. Will take 45+ minutes for anything. Ridiculous, considering vegetarian food only needs to be heated up, not cooked to a set temperature.
