We’re about to celebrate 40 years of being in business. In the same place with the same decor, and many of our original recipes including our famous garlic n’ cheese rolls. We do, however, change out our sawdust covered floors several times a week to keep it fresh.
We love our customers and value their ongoing patronage. We listen to feedback and pay attention to what’s going on with people’s’ eating habits. One thing we noticed was that we were under serving the large vegan community. We put on our thinking caps, did a year of research, tested various vegan dishes to no end and eventually launched our large vegan menu
a few years ago.
We weren’t sure what kind of response we would get but we felt it was the right thing to do. There are many people who have friends who have various eating habits. Wouldn’t it be great if they could all eat in the same place and get a dish that fits their eating style? We thought so and apparently so did a lot of other people.
I recently found a story
of someone who decided to try a vegan eating lifestyle for 101 days and here’s what she had to say on day 17:
“In the evening my roommate and I decided to check out the original Pizza Cookery in Woodland Hills, which just released their new vegan menu. I wasn’t too keen about going there at first, for while the vegan pizza I had in the past was good it was nothing compared to normal pizza. Truth be told I was also afraid I would be tempted by the delicious aroma of the other customers pizza around me. All the meals came with complimentary garlic rolls which conveniently had a vegan and non-vegan option.”
“For my main dish I ordered the mini pizza with a wheat crust, follow your heart cheese, tomato sauce, mushrooms, olives, and vegan pepperoni. I was pleasantly surprised after tasting my order. Not only did it look like pizza, but it tasted almost exactly the same as a normal mushroom, olive, and pepperoni pizza. I was in heaven. This place is definitely the best place to go if you are looking to find vegan pizza, and is perfect when going out with non-vegan friends who don’t necessarily want to have to switch to your eating habits.”
“Also besides the food the ambiance was great, and is a perfect place to take a date. The inside of the restaurant has an almost rustic feel to it with wooden tables and booths. They also have multi colored Christmas lights strung up along the ceiling, giving it that extra touch. I must say that this has been by far the best vegan friendly restaurant I have gone to yet.”
It makes me happy that our customers are happy and that we’ve succeeded by providing a well researched, well-tested vegan menu. It’s also great to see herbivores and carnivores eating the food they love in one place so one doesn’t have to adapt to the other if they don’t want to.
Thank you to our customers for your continued feedback and support. Keep it coming. We’re listening. We’re always listening.
