This spot’s a neighborhood stalwart in a neighborhood that, frankly, needs stalwarts. In a family atmosphere for vegans looking to escape boring lentil hell, the “BBQ Twist” sandwich is as close to real barbecue pulled pork as vegetarians will get, and somehow the fried cauliflower tastes like chicken. If you have the time, sit for the full Sunday dinner: salad with tangy house dressing, fake-chicken potpie, collard greens, corn and potatoes. The vegan apple or peach pie that follows may not be healthy, but that was never the point of soul food.

Wanted to love this spot but each time I have visited they don't have something that is an integral part of a dish on the menu.  I have had the greens they are pretty good wanted to try the smoothies BUT they were out of many of the ingredients when I went on two other occasions.
