Gregory's Family Restaurant

Gregory's Family Restaurant is an old fashioned diner in Canton with a decent number of vegetarian options on the menu. They are only open for breakfast and lunch, and they are not open at all on Monday. The service is laid back, friendly and helpful.

The vegetarian chili is delicious. It is a thick blend of tomato chunks, kidney beans and soy crumbles in a river of seasonings alongside an armada of topping options (crackers, cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, et al.). It is available in a cup and a bowl.

Since this is a diner, most of the vegetarian entrees are sandwiches, pastas and salads. There are veggie hot dogs as well as a large number of classic side dishes with a vegetarian flair (fried poppers, onion rings and French fries). There are also breakfast items including pancakes, omelets and even vegetarian sausage pattiy sandwiches and side dishes. I didn't eat breakfast, but it is available as long as the restaurant is open.

My main course was a sandwich made with Gregory's homemade veggie sausage. It was a loosely packed patty that was similar to a veggie burger. The patty was covered in mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce. It was served with a choice of chips or pretzels.

I also tried my dining companion's sandwich--the dilled yogurt club. It was a triple-decker sandwich built on wheat bread with layers of cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, cucumber, green pepper and pecan-dill cream cheese.

At first glance, you wouldn't guess that Gregory's would offer so many choices for vegetarians. It is well worth checking out if you're in the area.
