That day I just wanted a treat, so I got "The Seymour", which is a pistachio ice cream, peanut butter and cookies shake. It was very tasty, though they really should get thicker straws with which to suck the goodness out. Could you make this at home by buying some vegan ice cream and blending it up with cookies and peanut butter (and maybe even make it a little better with some light coconut milk)? Totally. But how often do you really get around to doing such things for yourself?
A few months back I saw that Groupon was offering a $15 Groupon for $7, so I snatched that up, and I finally got a chance to use it the other day.
Yes, I ate $15 worth of vegan junk food for breakfast. Don't judge me.
|Which reminds me, here's a little snippet of their good ol' Willburgy bathroom graffiti.|
For $8.75 I got a Combo Plate:
|Mashed potatoes with three chik'n drumsticks|
|Sad foodie wishes lady had asked if I'd like gravy (but she was new)|
|Left to right: sweet southern fried bbq, bbq, southern fried|
|Looks pretty real, eh? And nothing like poop from this angle.|
They only creamer option they have is soy milk, which strikes me as odd for a vegan place (no almond? rice? grain? hemp?), and she didn't even ask about sweeteners. I felt too sheepish to ask after Stevia, Splenda or any of my other calorie-cheating options, so I drank the thing down without it. Their coffee is pretty bad, but it's a silly thing you'd probably never have ordered there anyway.
I was happy to see they're now selling pints of Lula's Sweet Apothecary vegan ice cream. Maple and Waffles, mmm...
All in all, I'd go to this place all the time if:
A- I were a vegan or vegetarian
B- I were dating one
or C- I lived in any town other than NYC, where this would be novel
