iConnect Cafe

When we headed to  Fort Lauderdale, I knew I had to get to Sublime. But I was unaware of all the other vegan restaurants in town. Happy Cow to the rescue! Such a great phone app for traveling. Our second evening in town we were coming back from a lecture and hungry. Happy cow noted a vegan restaurant between where we were and our hotel. The place also had decent reviews. I was excited to try iConnect.

The space is also a yoga studio and walking in is mostly a store front with a bar to sit at and two tables. Our hostess, server, and yoga schedule shuffler was very nice as we asked lots of questions about the different options. I think the place is mostly used for take-out as three different people came by while we were there to pick up their dinner.

After much contemplation, I ordered the grilled cheese and veggie sandwich, hubby ordered the scramble with garbanzo beans, and the couple we brought with us got the portobello sandwich and the tropical sandwich. The salad looked the best of all our dishes.

We were disappointed. The food was just okay and everyone responded the same way. I was certainly surprised by the pile of tortilla chips with my sandwich.

Because I can’t pass up a vegan dessert, hubby and I shared a chocolate cupcake. The flavor was very good. There were also cookies out for anyone to try that were very tasty. It seems the desserts are worth the trip. However, for dinner I give the place two out of five vegan cupcakes. The food was okay, but I won’t go back for it. I should probably try the yoga studio though. I love yoga.
