McFoster’s Natural Kind Café caters to a predominantly vegetarian crowd but also serves free range chicken and fish. The vast majority of the menu is gluten free, and all gluten free items are clearly indicated on the menu. Vegan options are available on most dishes, and protein options include temph, Portobello mushroom, black bean burgers, tofu, salmon, tuna, and chicken. The menu is packed with creative sandwiches, wraps, and entrees, and vegan and non-vegan appetizers are separated on the menu. With its simple, eclectic interior, the atmosphere is casual enough that patrons seat themselves. Those looking to imbibe can purchase wine, beer, and some liquor, and smoothies and desserts are also available. I ordered a charbroiled eggplant sandwich upon the recommendation of the staff, and I found the portion to be appropriate (read: not too large) and the sandwich to be flavorful and unique. I sampled the chocolate mousse as well and thoroughly enjoyed my meal. The food is slightly more expensive at McFoster’s than at other restaurants of a similar atmosphere, but it is nonetheless reasonable, particularly given the quality of the ingredients.
