Though we don’t opt for a salad, there are several to choose from, as well as the opportunity to build your own by picking from five categories: lettuce base, veggies, cheese (including the option of Daiya vegan cheese), protein (including the options of avocado, tempeh, tofu and BBQ tofu), and dressing. Are you beginning to get the idea that this is a vegetarian/vegan friendly place? Uh. Yeah.
We also don’t order a hoagie, but it is worth taking a moment to mention that there are five vegetarian hoagies to pick from: the Portobello & Cheese, the Tofu, the Tempeh, the Avocado, and the Capri. For carnivores, there is the Turkey and Cheese, the BLT, the Meatball and the Jerk Chicken. And that’s just a sample.
The calzone comes with spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. Half of it is slightly more than my wife can eat. Suffice it to say that the House Calzone would be a very healthy portion for one person eating alone. The calzone is delicious. We have tried calzones at other places, so we have some basis for comparison. The crust is crispy on the outside and tender inside. The spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms are well done without being overcooked. The calzone is also served with a small cup of delicious marinara dipping sauce.
