I was so excited to find a vegan restaurant in Carefree. Unfortunately the food was inedible. I cannot really express how much we wanted to like it. It is also insanely expensive. And I am more than will to pay if the food is good.

Chef Sara comes to your table to explain the menu if you you're new. Then serves you delicious, original vegan cuisine that will keep you coming back for more. Absolutely worth every penny!!! My current fave is the ravioli.

We are CLOSED JULY and AUGUST. We will REOPEN SEPTEMBER 1st. The only restaurant on the planet that is a 100% organic, raw vegan gluten free cuisine and it is also free of GMO, soy, peanuts, cashews, nightshades, honey, grains, corn and beans. Situated in the beautiful historic village of Cave Creek, with an outdoor patio. The food is outstanding, prepared fresh daily from local and seasonal ingredients.
