Food was good, high quality, interestingly prepared. A little pricey for brunch. Didn't realize at first that drinks(coffee, tea) included in price. Irregardless is a word I found out after losing a bet.

This is a terrific place. Live music every night but unobtrusive relative to dinner conversation. Great bar and appetizers. Plenty of carnivore and vegan choices. Everything is superb and deserts are great. We love it and go every time in Raleigh

Funky Raleigh institution will have you channeling your hippie days (if you’re old enough) when great vegetarian food and natural beverages ruled the day. It’s worth a visit.

You may want to call the restaurant to see if this location can fit a large party. I didn't see a private space in the restaurant.
