Sticky Fingers is good. Their cupcakes are great, but I also got a burger there that was delicious. It's pretty small though, and the feel of the place is very casual.

I opened a pouch of Westsoy Tofu recently that had foul-smelling yellow slime coating the tofu. And it was not even expired. Needless to say, I did not eat it.

I'm vegan, and I'm not a huge fan of VeganGains or the other prominent Youtube fitness vegans. Vegans and vegetarians are a diverse group, and we hope that you will join us!
