I'm not a Vegan - but an awesome place. Food is fantastic and service is always with a smile. Highly recommend it. But good food comes with a hefty price tag, but well worth it.

Great concept and great vegan menu. Solid chefs in the kitchen. This place just missed a 5 star rating due to the mediocre corn chips used for the nachos. Other ingredients were spot on: veggies, grains, tempeh, etc... Will return....

I am a carnivore but I like good food. This delightful restaurant offers enough delicious food to make you forget that you aren't vegetarian. The food is wholesome, tasty, and filling.

I found the staff to be extremely helpful and they asked specific questions re: allergies etc. Best bet is to phone or go in and ask. They are wonderful.

I'm actually not sure, I've never gone in for a coffee. If they serve it, I can't see why not. They are incredibly friendly people
