FAQ

 

Are you trying to convert people to veganism or vegetarianism?

Not at all. Our purpose in offering a wholesome, nourishing plant-based menu is simple: reduce our carbon footprint and positively impact the planet, one meal at a time. We are a safe place for all to try global plant-based comfort food and learn about climate change. Meat-eaters, vegans, vegetarians and beyond are all welcome!

 

Is your menu vegan?

While we offer a number of delicious vegan options, our menu is vegetarian - meaning some of our dishes may include ingredients such as milk, butter or honey. Have a question about a specific dish? Just ask. Most of our dishes can be modified to vegan.

 

Isn’t a vegan diet better for climate change than a vegetarian diet?

Great question; we’re glad you asked! According to a study by Oxford University, switching to a vegetarian diet decreases your carbon footprint by 63% and a vegan diet decreases your impact by 70%. Pretty close, huh? Even though we offer dairy ingredients and items on our menu, we're still getting a pretty big bang for our bite. Want to learn more? Read all about it here.

 

Is your food organic?

We use only the finest and freshest ingredients available, featuring locally-sourced and organic products within EWG's Dirty Dozen guidelines. Our organic eggs and dairy are sourced locally with the highest standards of ethical treatment of animals.

 

What about the booze?

We’re committed to delivering on our philosophy from appetizers through dessert - drinks included. We’ve partnered with three local breweries that share our belief in making our planet a better, more sustainable place: Broken Clock Brewing Cooperative, Indeed Brewing Company, and Finnegans Brew Co.

We also exclusively offer keg-based wines. In addition to tasting delicious, wine on tap requires less packaging (bottles, corks, labels and cases). The result is less to ship and recycle, resulting in a lower carbon footprint for all.

 

Do you offer any nut-free options? Soy-free? Gluten-free?  

We have several options on and off the menu that can accommodate allergies and food sensitivities. We are known for having many gluten-free options in the area. Feel free to email with any questions at hello@figandfarro.com.

 

Do you offer a children’s menu? 

We do offer a plant-based kids menu, including our famous cheesy shells! We love kids and have even built a special treehouse for our smaller friends (so they can conspire on how to save the planet too!) 

 

How do I get protein? Won’t I still feel hungry without meat?

A plant-forward diet has a surprising amount of protein and we feel confident you'll leave fully satisfied and looking forward to your next visit to Fig + Farro. We are happy to answer any questions you have about protein.
