I want to say that I love the food in this restaurant, but I am very disappointed with their management staff. I called the restaurant to inquire about catering services. I was told by the man in charge of large take-out orders that I could pick up large orders, but they could not be catered. Okay--that was fine, but then he told me to email about him with the details of my order, so we could work something out that way. I agreed, and I tried to email him with the contact link to which he directed me. With this link, I was forced to open a Gmail account, which pissed me off immediately. However, I persevered and sent him an email as he asked me to do. I waited two weeks. I heard NOTHING. The event is fast approaching, and the only reason why I remained so patient is because I love the food. So I resent the information and asked him to please respond to me. NOTHING. I have heard NOTHING. I was so obviously BLOWN OFF by this jerk that I just decided to go with the vegan menu at Kerby Lane for my catering needs, which is not going to be such a pain in the ass for me anyway. I would like to remind the rude person who decided to blow me off that although the restaurant has great food, many vegans create far better dishes of their own, so the food --when I am honest with myself--does not warrant the HORRIBLE service and deplorable attitude that comes with it. I will NEVER go there again.

I adore the Veggie Medley, and the Vegan Spinach Lasagna. Cashew Tamari dressing on salad or with veggies is delightful. The wait staff can be iffy. Meagan used to be my fav but she's moved on to greater things. Christopher has waited on me while dining solo or with friends. He's cute and efficient. In fact, I'm sure I am in love.

This place has the whole package. It is clean, comfy and yummy. All their meals are made with fresh local ingredients that leave you feeling good after eating them. I really enjoyed their meatless lasagna and hibiscus tea. You have to try it!

This is an excellent local resturant. They have a wonderful selection of vegetarian dishes. Dishes range from homecooked style, to Mexican, Itallian, and more. They have the best appitizers and desserts. Prices are around $7.00-$10.00 a dish, but well worth it for the quality. Most of the dishes are pretty healthy as well.

This is a great place for a vegan since everything is labeled well and most things can be converted from vegetarian to vegan. The ambience is cozy, they are always busy, and the food is super tasty. I like trying something new each time I go, since they have such an extensive moderately priced menu I never have a hard time selecting.

PROS: great vegan selection
CONS:

I'm not a Vegan/Vegetarian myself but I love Mothers. The food is delicious and you can't miss the Sunday brunch. Their Migas platter and Mimosas are a must have. For dinner I recommend the Mushroom Stroganoff. Delicious! I recommend this place highly.

I love having lunch at Mothers Cafe. I am always amazed at how they can make ordinary vegetarian food taste so good. So far, I have enjoyed everything I ordered from their menu. They've also got great fresh squeezed orange juice. I would recommend eating in their garden. It just makes the whole experience fun. The prices are reasonable. I would highly recommend eating here. You will always feel healthy after eating here.
