I wanted to love it. The atmosphere seemed a bit stark. They were out of some basics on the menu, and my grilled sandwich was just average.

Visited the downtown louisville location on Market St and loved it! As a person with Celiac's Disease, I was delighted to find a place that served up amazing GF sandwiches and melts. I had the sweet grilled cheese and it was delicious!

Vegan options aren't plentiful in Louisville but Earth Friend's always has very good vegan options for breakfast and lunch. Very friendly service and perfect place for a working solo lunch or a casual coffee or lunch meeting.

Actually, the biscuits were right up there with best ever, period. Was headed to another good breakfast restaurant nearby and had to turn around in a parking lot and found this place. It was fate. I love biscuits and gravy and have totally quit (at least knowingly) eating Sysco restaurant food. These were great. Note that the gravy has a... More

Ended up going for brunch two days in a row due to all other area restaurants being packed. So glad we found it. I had the spinach and eggwhite quesadilla one day, and the Vegan Breakfast Burrito the next day. Both were fantastic. By husband is not a vegetarian (I am), but he really loved his meals too. Highly recommended... More

Much of the food is locally sourced, and all the ingredients are chosen with mindful respect of health, taste, and the environment. Even with these serious considerations, the menu items are creatively prepared and delicious. The coffee... More

On a snowy winter day, this was a cozy spot for lunch with friends. The vegan and vegetarian food was plentiful and good. We tried several different dishes and enjoyed everything except the Kale Chips. The service was friendly. And this spot in NuLu where parking can be an issue has its own off street parking.

I had a tomato artichoke panini and hot chocolate. It was very refreshing and light for a morning breakfast. The ambience was pleasant and they have some good vegetarian / vegan options. Definitely recommended for a light bite.

For the vegetarians and vegans in the crowd, this is a great place for lunch. Even carnivores will have a satisfying meal.
