Alright so this is my typa vegan food. Vegan for 2+ years now and this place blows me away. It’s mad expensive, so I’ve only had the great pleasure of trying two of their offerings, but damn was it fire. It gets you right, too, seriously (if you get those options). Even without trying the food, you can tell the food is good. Here’s why. The website is awful, the photos were awful, the location isn’t the best, and they don’t do eat-ins. All of these factors contribute to a sub-par business model. But when the food is amazing...people know, and thus the business remains standing. However, I have noticed that they are working on their food photography and damn are those new pictures are excellent. They need to give that treatment to all of Hemplade’s offerings. Put those photos on a refreshed website and all of a sudden I want to order all the food. I mean, I already do after seeing the photos. I also wish there was a backstory on their website, even if its not that deep. Maybe it’s just me, but with these local vegan places I always like to take a look at the story behind it. Doesn’t really matter though because the staff is super friendly (wish I remembered their names), and it’s always a pleasure walking in to pick up and just getting a cure for color blindedness due to the sheer amount of green decor there is. I hope this place stays for as long as I live here and I hope they continue to improve upon themselves and offer some lower priced goods along their higher priced ones. Regardless, I am going to try everything on their menu. Respect.
Note: As a 100% vegan eatery, I will always give 5 stars for spearheading the creation of a kinder and more compassionate world. A world where the dystopian practice of serving murdered innocent animals and their byproducts is no longer morally or culturally acceptable. Thank you.
