This spot feels as though it is tucked away in a dark hole. I would have loved a lighter more airy feel. However...The burger and fries were good and the service quick and efficient. And they sell some cool extras!

We always love finding a place that specifically caters to vegetarians. But this place holds it own against any regular restaurant out there. We appreciated the menu having some interesting twists rather than just serve the standard meals everywhere else serves. Highly recommended!

The food here is really good (we got salads and the "chikun" poppers), but do not leave without getting the raw cheesecake or brownie!! They are delicious.

Seriously, their vegan cheesecake is better than normal cheesecake. Their burger is tasty and comes with sweet potatoes fries, which are my favorite! They also have a smoothie called 'super drink my food' which is delicious!
