Hal & Al’s has been a staple and generous supporter of the vegan community since it opened in 2009. The ENTIRE dining menu is VEGAN. They also happen to be one of the coolest venues in town for local music and for those who like beer, have one of the largest selections of beer I’ve seen in this town. They are a big supporter of local food like Luna burger, local brewers and even supply a local source of root beer- which has been a wonderful thing because it is the only place I know in town to offer a creamy vegan root beer float for special events or a vegan spinach and artichoke dip. They have continually supported the 300 Vegans for Independence after party with creative ideas in food partnerships in support of a mass turnout. If you are inclined toward fried foods this is the place to get some interesting fried options- such as deep fried sour kraut balls, Oreos, pretzels, pickles, mushrooms or a sampler if you can’t decide. They even do a comprehensive traditional veganized brunch menu on Sat and Sun from 12 to 4 that also include house-made vegan donuts! Party on at Hal & Al's!
