Just passing through but this casual vegan joint was a welcome beacon after trying to avoid animal products in Texas the past 10 days. The Tofu Fueros and the burger were scrumptious. Great classic brownie, plus they have gluten free brownies as well. Lots of...More

This is my favorite pick up place for a vegan and gluten free meal. It's fresh, much of the produce is locally grown and the food is always flavorful. I highly recommend for lunch or pick up for dinner.

The best vegan and brunch place in town!!! I have tried a new dish every-time and have yet to be disappointed. The owners are kind and it’s definitely worth the money. Although the food is vegan, meat eaters are still usually happy.

Nice little spot in Tallahassee for vegan fare. Not fancy, counter service with indoor and outdoor dining. Can get crowded, so anticipate a wait at certain times.
