I went here with my wife as she's a celiac and thought it would work for both of us. Turns out that neither of us enjoyed our meal. Service was decent but food was doodoo. Had the seitan nuggets and they were inedible.

We are not vegans but went here on a recommendation. The food was wow and while I've always enjoyed vegan dishes this was above and beyond anything I've had. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Vegan or not, you will enjoy the food here. It's all delicious and staff will explain what a dish is made out of, if your not familiar with vegan food. Small, but nice, service is friendly. It's made from scratch do might take a bit...More

Great place for a quick tasty meal. A little loud tho. Service could be a lil more efficient. I am not a vegan but still enjoyed the sandwich.
