I was hoping this place would be good, but I wasn't impressed. Granted, maybe I needed to order something else. I ordered the Paleo bowl, which was compliant with my dietary needs at the moment, as well as an iced tea. I was told that refills on iced tea were free. It was hot so I drank the tea quickly...

I loved that they had Orca beans, a variety of greens on the menu, and that they don't drown the food in sauce. Great, healthy bowls, burritos and salads of a variety flavors. The staff was great and the atmosphere simple and clean. This weeks Vindaloo bowl was excellent!

Welcome to veggie heaven - and there's outdoor seating in both front & back! We loved the friendly service and the unique menu offerings--which are reasonably-priced. Even though this location isn't in my favorite part of town, this is a funky, upbeat cafe featuring unusual art on the interior walls and a pleasant, tree-lined private patio out back with informal...

This is a really steady, almost vegetarian spot. Tables are close together but this is never a problem as the diners are always friendly.

Wonderful atmosphere - homey, upbeat, funky, fun. I liked my potatoes with the corn, cheese and broccoli. Very satisfying, and healthy. Type of thing I'd make at home, so finding it at a restaurant was a nice surprise.

Wide selection of items for the vegan/vegetarian eaters and many of these are most welcome on our food path. A bit heavy with the starch-sugar content while I prefer entrees more nutrient dense heavy. Good quality, tasty and very nice presentation.

Walking distance from Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital --friendly place, relaxed atmosphere, fast service, great menu, reasonable prices, drop by or-order-to-go... this place is perfect for vegan, gluten-free and paleo diets, but even you regular folks will enjoy it!

Super friendly staff, food is very tasty. The paleo bowl was a bit too spicy (too much spice covered up a lot of the flavor), the Cuban wrap was very very good. Looks to be family friendly; love the dinosaur toys :)
