  • The fried bacon mac at Uptons Breakroom is one of the 100 best things we ate this year. http://tmout.us/rLOtk
  • Excellent vegan lunch; the Kimchi Tacos are wonderful!
  • The Fried Bacon Mac is brimming with bacon-flavored seitan, crunchy panko and a faux cheese as warm and comforting as the real deal.
  • I like my food free of animal AND human products: Upton's satisfied the former but not the latter. Hair in my tempeh sandwich. Ick.
  • Best scone of my life?!
  • All vegan and tasty
  • The breakfast sandwich and blueberry muffin were so good! Place is tiny but it is all vegan :-)
  • I would have appreciated a side and a wider variety of beverages, but the BLT was tasty.
  • Only seating for 8
  • The Korean tacos are incredible!
  • Bacon ranch cheeseburger was delicious even for a non vegan like myself!!!!!! Must have. The Mac n cheese was pretty tasty too!
  • LOVED the Mac & Cheese
  • The burgers are good, and the big cookies are good and the bacon Mac and ice cream
  • Every now and then a Togarashi Bowl (baked tofu, grilled kale, carrots, pickled radish, scallion, seaweed, sesame seeds over purple rice with a lemon tahini miso dressing) really hits the spot.
  • Jackfruit tacos are amazing.
  • They have an "employee plate" which is like a daily special. Sometimes it's a sandwich, sometimes it's more of a plate like ribs with a salad. Either way you can't go wrong.
  • Tiny little place if you want to dine in (8 chairs), but this place is a treat for vegans and a surprise for non-vegans
  • Always ask what the employee meal is! They whip up some amazing things not on the menu.
  • Best vegan waffles in town
  • An accurate name for what is basically the break room for Upton's employees, it's cool getting to grab a great vegan meal directly from the source.
