    We were treated very well! The staff were friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere was warm and inviting, the food was simply the best - with generous portions, from appetizers through dessert. What a great place!! I will certainly go back. Thanks, Aya.

    The group is bigger than expected so we need to split into two groups. It will probably be one at 5pm and the other at 7pm. I will announce it once it's confirmed. Cheers!

    January 28, 2013

    • Iya

      In that case, the time for this event page will be changed to 5pm and I will create another event page for 7pm. Can some of you please move to 7pm when it happens? It would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    • Mark Avrum D.

      Yer right! Refined white flour oh no! Will have to do a detox afterwards. Kidding.

      January 28, 2013

  • pauline

    JUST DON'T TAKE ANY, MAYBE THEY CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH SOMETHING SUITABLE, ASK THE ORGANIZER?

    January 27, 2013

    • Mark Avrum D.

      Naw, it's okay, it's just dessert. :-)

      January 28, 2013

  • Mark Avrum D.

    Note to all that the gelato contains processed white sugar, so may not be for those of us who are vegan 'purists'. I'll be giving mine to my non-vegan husband!

    Daiya is a NON DAIRY, NON ANIMAL PRODUCT cheese substitute. It has 6 gms of Fat per 28 gm serving. 2.5 of those gms are from Saturated Fat. Of it's main ingredients: Palm Fruit Oil, Safflower Oil, Canola Oil & Coconut Oil, there are many opinions as to the health benefits of any processed oil, especially ones that contain saturated fat. Check out postings on Utube of Jeff Novick, well known Vegan Dietician, as well as Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, well known Cardiologist with regard to their opinions on the health benefits of added processed oil to the foods you eat. Personally, I think it is best to do a lot of research and be as fully informed as you can be so that you can make intelligent decisions for your health, the ecology of the planet and ethics re: killing other beings. Having said that, I will be at this Veg Meet Up and plan to enjoy my "cheese substitute" pizza. It is something that I fit into my diet and lifestyle as an "occasional" treat! I am looking forward to it.

    Sounds like a delicious menu! Just a note thought. One of the pizza's has cheese in it. I'm recently attempting the vegetarian and vegan lifestyles and just wondering if cheese is there wouldn't that not make it vegan? To my understanding, Vegan should not include dairy products. Please do correct me if I'm wrong :)
