Small place located in the Glebe. Great selection of veggie option with some baked goods with specialty grains. You can order at the counter or go to the sit down area in the back. Fair prices.

Great vegetarian fare in the heart of the Glebe. Outstanding flavours and tasty baked goods (whoa the pecan cinn buns were stupendous!) Very organic and eclectic - not cheap but very tasty - next time I have to try their breakfast!
