Food was wonderful but had to wait almost an hour to get a table. I enjoyed their tabouli salad and my husband had loaded nachos. They were pretty good. Ambience is off beat and unique. It was a nice experience for a change.

If you are vegetarian or vegan, you will like this place. Bohemian style place and food offers a good list of delicious meal and beer/wine. Staff are polite and quick.
