Rare to find an all vegan restaurant, but it makes it "safe" to order anything on the menu. We had "cheese" macaroni and a couple of salads that were fresh and healthy. We sat outside near the sidewalk and enjoyed being under the stars. I...More

If I could give this place six stars, I would. Fully vegan, this place is a vegetarian and vegan's Nirvana. The food is smart and creative, with options like (fake) chicken and waffles, chorizo hash, and a lineup of delicious appetizers (try the seitan wings)...More
