“Delicious vegetarian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2012 via mobile

Sprouts is a very cute cafe with delicious vegetarian options. We recently tried the cous-cous and hummus burrito and rice bowl. Both were delicious with generous potions. For dessert we had 2 of their fruit smoothies-both very refreshing. Small amount of seating outside and fair amount of seating inside. Bring cash, as they do not accept credit cards.

“Tasty Tempeh Burgers and Super Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

The beauty of Lake Tahoe can be somewhat distracting. So much that you can forget all about dinner until the sun calls it a day and there is nothing left to see. This happened to us, so by the tiime we arrived at Sprouts at 20:50 they were all but ready to shut their doors as they close at 21:00. Many restaurants would turn patrons away once they had started stacking the chairs on the tables, but the staff were more than happy to feed us and they did it with a smile.

We ordered a few tempeh burgers with tortilla chips and washed them down with some of their excellent fruit smoothies. I'm not a vegetarian, but I have had a number of vegetarian burgers in the past and none of them compare to the tempeh burgers that Sprouts serve up, especially when topped with a tonne of fresh vegetables. They also stock some stunning vegan cookies near the till that everyone should give a go.

Sprouts was a tasty end to a spellbinding evening in Lake Tahoe, and the attitude and enthusiasm of the staff has made our visit a highly memorable one.

“Mean green machine...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

Smoothies are the bomb. I'm not a health nut eater, but if I was this would most certainly do the trick. If nothing else, go in to check out the ladies who work there. Always good just like the smoothies.

“Average fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

The restaurant serves some interesting sandwiches. My nieces did not enjoy their sprouts sandwiches. The nachos were good and the smoothies. It is overrates.
