The Forest serves cheap, good, tasty and filling vegan meals. Each day there are different choices of pre made food and salads. Desserts in the form of vegan cheesecakes and cupcakes are also available which looked great. Meals cost between $8 and $12 depending on...More

You wouldn't want to go here on a date, but the fantastic hot buffet fare is broad and tasty. The vegan desserts are to die for. Basically yummy vegan food, train station cafe atmosphere.

Love the vegan place. The tofu burger is excellent especially with the hot chili sauce. Service is pretty good. Price is great. The cakes though, well that is a bit of a challenge. Sometimes they are fresh, other times really old. We returned one, and...More
