Seed to Sprout Restaurant Review

Located in Fair Haven, N.J., Seed to Sprout is a vegan restaurant tucked away in a little strip shop area. Although the restaurant itself might not be seen right away from the street, the food does not disappoint in the slightest. Serving vegan entrees, homemade vegan baked goods, as well as offering a juice and smoothie bar, this is a place you’d want to sit in for hours and simply admire.

I walked into Seed to Sprout for the first time on a Sunday afternoon to meet a friend for a late lunch. Upon entering, I was greeted by friendly smiles, a calm and serene atmosphere, and the smells of main dishes being prepared whilst simultaneously suspecting the aromas of freshly baked goods. Through the entrance to my right was the counter, surrounded by cookies, scones, muffins, juices, smoothies, and a plethora of other delicious looking options.

The atmosphere of Seed to Sprout was bright and welcoming. The service was very good and the food came out quick. I ordered their “bacon” cheddar melt, which was made from seared and marinated tempeh, caramelized onion, coconut bacon, and cashew cheese, all on their “wheat free millet & flax bread.” It was absolutely delicious. It melted in my mouth, a burst of flavor…I was totally blown away. Along with the sandwich came a kale salad as well.

The prices were reasonable, not too expensive. Before paying, I knew I needed to grab a dessert as well. I had trouble deciding on which one to get, but opted for the chocolate walnut cookie. It was warm, crumbly (so fresh!), and extremely decadent. It was safe to say that the minute I got home, I ate the cookie in a matter of 2 seconds.

To conclude this review, it was absolutely a fantastic first experience at Seed to Sprout. I’d recommend this restaurant to any vegan or person thinking about going vegan. Even if you aren’t interested in vegan food at all, this place still wouldn’t disappoint!
