Cat's Corner

One of the restaurants that is in our lunch "rotation" is Cat's Corner. It's just down the block from the Journal, so it's very convenient, although it can be a bit slow and crowded when the convention-center hordes descend. Cat's has always been pretty vegetarian-friendly (apart from an unfortunate penchant for putting bacon in otherwise-vegetarian quiches), so I was a little bit concerned that their new menu might take a step backward in that regard.

Happily, that isn't the case, although it's personally a bit of a mixed bag since they took off two of my favorite vegetarian sandwiches, the Portabella Wrap and the hot Veggie Pita (both messy but oh-so-good). They kept their other vegetarian dishes, such as the Veggie Burger and BBQ Tofu Sub, and added several more. Additions include a Spinach Cakes appetizer, several veggie sandwiches (including a vegan wrap), and a Moroccan Vegetable Salad, which includes tofu and I can personally attest is quite tasty. You can still make your own sandwich and salad -- but now, instead of three free salad fixings included, it's only two.

Another drawback of the new menu is that it now costs $2.00 to get fruit as a side with your sandwich instead of the previous 50 cents -- quite an increase there! What, do they marinate the fruit in gasoline?

They don't yet have the new menu up on their Web site but promise that it's coming soon.

Thanks for the review. As a new Vegan, I'm finding that Winston-Salem is kind of lacking in choices. I hadn't thought of Cat's, so I'll be going by!
