One of my favorite restaurants in Rochester. Has a very distinct atmosphere -- a little funky, a little High Tea. They have excellent vegan and vegetarian options, including a delicious Tofu Scramble and outstanding vegan baked goods. Plenty of great options for non vegans.

First time here since they moved from Webster to the city. Great old building and plenty of seats. Servers very knowledgeable of the menu and specials. Food was well made and on time. Above average but the clincher was the uniqueness of the menu. Give...More
