I ordered the spicy tofu scramble. It was served quick. Food was delicious, not as 'healthy' as I was expecting (quite a bit of oil), packed with flavor. Restaurant has an interesting menu, they use organic ingredients. It's a great quick bite vegan option downtown Syracuse. Plus the funky vibe and music selection is quite enjoyable!

Milkshake was pretty good. They have a ton of options certainly good options for food if your trying to eat healthy or are not a meat eater. Small intimate place inside a brick bldg. prob would miss it if you weren't looking for it. Lots of coffee options too

Wife and I were in town for a short stop, wanted (needed) to find a good vegan restaurant before hitting the road. Looked this place up and based on the strong reviews, decided to give it a shot. Now I will preface by saying I am always glad when I find a full vegan restaurant. It's so nice to not... More

I ordered the Cajun seitan sandwhich and an Oreos milkshake. Delicious! Reasonably priced for downtown. Would go back again.

Stopped here for the first time after hearing so many wonderful reviews. I was not disappointed. I was overwhelmed by the amount of choices and went with their special of the day which I can't pronounce but it had grilled ginger tofu with shredded carrots and other assorted goodies on toasted bread. Out of this world. Wish I lived closer... More

This place is ridiculously awesome and I wish I could visit Syracuse every single week to eat here. As it is, every time I'm in the area, I make it a point to go here. Even though this place is all vegan, I wouldn't necessarily call this "healthy" eating--let's be clear, everything here is comfort food to the max. You'll... More

This is a wonderful vegan-only eatery with lots of diner classics on the menu (tofu scramble, french toast, salads, sandwiches, milkshakes in dozens of flavors.) Great for lunch or dinner. Can be a little warm in the summer (just one window AC unit) and the wait can be a bit long. On Friday nights only pizza is available.

The salads we bought were delicious. The roasted beets and squash were savory. The BLT was very tasty and interesting. The ingredients were unique and the bread was delicious. The whoopie pie was a bit dry and the frosting too sweet, but the rest of the meal was very good. Nice to have a healthy, delicious place to go for... More

Stayed at the Crowne next door so would walk here in the morning to get coffee. Not really into the vegan movement but the breakfast sandwich was amazing! I would swear it was an egg sandwich with sausage if I did not know any better. Also, the cupcakes are a great afternoon pick me up!

you would not know this really neat place existed unless someone told you! It's a vegan cafe in an older building - great sandwiches, wraps and salads! Decent price for lunch with good atmosphere!
