This Vegetarian/vegan restaurant is lovely in every way. The styling paintings both hung and painted directly on the wall are charming and intriguing. The food is simply gorgeous- both in presentation and in taste. I sat at the bar and had the "street tacos" with...More

We visited WaterCourse after a day of rafting. Needless to say we were hungry. We ended up here. The decor was cute and hipsterish. We ordered the mac and cheese with broccoli, seitan wings, corndogs and sweet potato fries. Evening was delicious and we had...More
