I haven't posted in quite awhile, but I felt it necessary to respond to this post.
I have been going to Alice and Friends for at least three years, and it's one of my favorite veg restaurants in the city. I have brought along almost every one of my omni friends, and they have all enjoyed the food and decor. Other than that, I have found the staff to be incredibly friendly and helpful.
Try it again sometime, and go for the "spicy barbeque" or the "korean barbeque" if it's on special, and if you can tolerate cold tofu, the tofu appetizer is very good.
I live much closer to Blind Faith, and some of the food is definitely dee-lish when it's not overly greasy, but the prices are too high for me to go often. I recommend the Macrobiotic plate; brown rice with mushroom gravy, steamed kale, beans, squash, dill pickle, and miso soup, simply yum!
