The Top is....the Top. Delicious original foods, from Vegan to burgers and everything in between. It's a fun place to visit, very popular with locals.

We like going here with friends because there are lots of choices for the vegan and non-vegan. Vegan chocolate cake is so delicious. Tofu triangles are very good for an appetizer.

Excellent food, eclectic atmosphere, cozy booths with low lighting and lots of artwork. Staff is a tad pretentious. Otherwise, I highly recommend.

I don't think they take reservations, however they do use a text message system to tell you when your table is ready. We had an hour wait but walked to a nearby bar to have drinks first and it worked out great!
