Loved it here, so many healthy options and interesting salads, crepes, sandwiches... Had to park on the street but this was manageable. This is a great vegetarian/vegan find. Not cheap, but fresh and filling. Glad we stopped in!

I don't know the answer, since it doesn't pertain to me, however, I noted their commitment to quality food. There may have been a sign regarding nuts, but I don't remember.
