Everything on the menu had great appeal and making a choice was difficult, wanted to try it all. Instead of a toast option you could choose a muffin or scone, fresh baked. Their coffee was far better than most restaurants. Try them, you’ll love it!

If you think this sounds like a nice vegan restaurant, you would be wrong. It is undoubtedly a very nice restaurant with delicious choices. The atmosphere is relaxed, comfortable, and friendly. I would recommend it very highly.

THE BEST restaurant, deli counter, catering, take-out, and grocery!! Many vegan and gluten-free choices. Highly recommend getting your birthday cakes and party food here. Fabulous vegan cakes like the peanut butter chocolate and the red velvet!!

We've been coming here for 20 years! Always a delicious and healthy meal. Today I'm having the tofu scrambler and my husband is having blueberry pancakes. After we always shop in the store for unique items like the giant sesame cookie or a decomposition notebook!
