The Lunch Room started as a Food Cart located in the Mark’s Carts Courtyard. With much success and a growing fan-base they were able to sign a lease in the Kerrytown Shops and offer more seating, hours, and food. This is when I found them. I was following their story through Facebook, I don’t get to the area Mark’s Carts is set up during serving hours since my offices are not within walking distance to get there and back again with a chance to eat in the middle.
Now located in the Kerrytown Shops I can walk there on lunch for a little treat from their desserts, or sit for a bit to eat.
The addiction started with a (not so) little Macaroon, and I have to admit that I like them more than Zingerman’s Macaroons. Great moisture and they have chocolate on them!
I had to go back and get a macaroon for Rob, they are one of his favorite cookies, but they didn't have them the day I went back. I couldn't walk out empty handed to I got a doughnut, raspberry lemonade, Yum! I tried again, still no macaroons that time either, so I had to try a cookie, mexican chocolate chip, the spice builds on that one, Yum! Finally got a macaroon for Rob and he was delighted, and picked up a pumpkin whoopie pie for myself :)
I worked up the courage for lunch and tried the Banh mi chay: The Lunch Room’s take on this classic Vietnamese baguette sandwich with marinated baked tofu, carrot-radish pickle, jalapenos, and fresh cilantro and mint with garlic mayo. Served on our housemade baguette $7.
With the balanced flavors and wonderful textures, it is truly amazing to believe that they are 100% Vegan! That’s right folks, they are a vegan restaurant.
