This is not a trendy, uppity restaurant (thankfully!). It is a no fuss vegetarian, vegan spot with a boho, earthy vibe. Take note of the chalkboard menu at the entrance because there are no printed menus. Service was prompt and polite, not obtrusive. I had...More

I came here for lunch and got the BBQ Jackfruit sandwich. It was smokey, sweet, and a little spicy. It was very good and the atmosphere was very cool. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

OK, this is a hipster college joint. Not fancy by any means. Dark and cramped atmosphere, but you can envision the kids packed in there at night drinking their favorite boutique ale. We ate lunch there and I had a bean burger that had a...More

if this is the "to go" vegetarian restaurant in richmond - IT WENT .... poor service (i know it's college servers - but 50% screwed up orders is not a passing grade) ... i was more impressed with daily kitchen for my vegetarian needs ....

Yes, there was a dog on the patio when we were there. They were very nice to the dog – they give the dog water after the people were served their drinks
