We like going here with friends because there are lots of choices for the vegan and non-vegan. Vegan chocolate cake is so delicious. Tofu triangles are very good for an appetizer.

I heard this place had great vegetarian plates, and the good thing is it is not exclusively vegetarian, so my friends could choose what they wanted. My bean patty with blackened tofu ($13) was delicious!! The burger ($12) was ok. The vegan chocolate cake was...More
