When I stopped by to photograph The Pop Shop in Collingswood, NJ, I got a surprise!
Two wonderful vegan meals, courtesy of Assistant Manager Kevin Sperlunto:
Vegan Philly Cheesesteak (seitan, mushrooms, onions, soy cheese) & Vegan Bettys, both to die for!
Kevin was excited about my blog posts covering veg friendly restaurants in South Jersey and the Philadelphia Daily News Vegetarian Awareness Month Photo Contest. He made his appreciation clear. Thanks, Kevin!
The photos of the storefront of The Pop Shop now appear in both the "Vegetarian" Photo Gallery of Philly.com and the "Vegan" Photo Gallery of Philly.com since both words are indicated clearly.
Congrats, Pop Shop!
The Pop Shop is no stranger to vegan food and is well-known for it's vegan offerings.

See that sign in the far right window?
The Pop Shop is beyond vegan friendly. This is only a partial menu of their vegetarian & vegan selections.
There are other vegan items on the menu, and you can make many of the other vegetarian items vegan by adding soy cheese (you can just ask for it). They also have soy milk, which you can add to things like the Pop's Groovy Granola to make it (almost!) vegan. Kevin explained that the granola does contain honey. They also have a vegan tofu scramble with shoestring hash browns and garlicky spinach!
Gorgeous Vegan Bettys. BEST pancakes ever.
Huge, fluffy, sweet and nutty--I don't know what they do to them! Add bananas, strawberries, blueberries, chocolate chips, or what have you, but I like mine plain :-)
Vegan Philly Cheesesteak, SO tasty!
Seitan, sauteed mushrooms, soy cheese, awesome baguette, and BEST fries. YUM. You can ask for other veggies on it, too!
I didn't get to eat many of the pancakes. Why?
That's a 10/10. Perfect score!
What does this all mean?
Do yourself a favor and stop by The Pop Shop for some Vegan Bettys or anything else on their menu.
Tell 'em The Sheriff sent ya'!
