Re: “Vita Cafe

In as much of a vegan/vegetarian friendly city Portland is, it is still rare to find a restaurant that truly understands what it is to be vegan. Since the launch of the Vita Café, I have been a frequent diner. As a vegan, their solely vegetarian/vegan menu led me to believe that the owner and staff were conscious of my diet and convictions. Well, apparently this is not the case. I dined for breakfast yesterday morning with one of the items being their “vegan sausage”. From a previous visit, I was under the impression that the cook staff was developing their own recipe, so kindly asked the server only to have my heart broken. Can you imagine my horror when I learned they serve Morning Star sausage? I believe it is common knowledge among vegans that Morning Star does not make a vegan product. It is all egg based! This is the most irresponsible and deceitful action a restaurant, supposedly catering to vegans, can make. I am now left wondering what else on the menu isn’t vegan despite its claim. Maybe they use bone filled refined sugar and egg in their vegan biscuits. Well, you won’t be seeing me in the Vita Café any time soon. This is an outrage, and I encourage all vegans to follow suit and let the Vita Café know that their deceit and lack of compassion for our diet will not be tolerated.
