Fresh ingredients, fantastic menu and friendly staff. Perfect meal. Good for families and kids. Everyone in my party loved the food. In and out in 45 minute, but we could have stayed for two hours.

Our son had the Yak burger. The waitress showed us pictures of the yak from the local farm and explained about the farm and the owners. Food was great. You have to save room for the apple tart - delicious! We would come here again.

Don't know the exact number, but many. You might want to check out their website menu. My wife did all of the legwork. The restaurant is known for its natural food selections.
