Best vegetarian spot in Monmouth County. This cozy little spot in Red Bank is a true gem even for meat eaters. The space is no frills but the food is all good. This is not a spot for big groups but it is a spot...More

We frequent this location at least once a month, one of top three favorite vegetarian/ vegan places in new jersey for me. Good atmosphere and nice staff. And now they also serve breakfast! Must check this out whether vegan or not!

This is a tiny little place with no particular physical attraits, but the food is really first class. Fresh, tasty, creative and vegan, raw, gluten-free, whatever you want. I really loved the raw crackers.

If you're a vegan then you'll be happy to put up with the limited table space (they also have take-out) and the slow service. But the food is fresh, plentiful and good. I personally like the "granola" ambiance, it adds to the experience. I just...More

First let me start by saying, I am not a vegan. We visited this establishment since we were with a business partner who is. I was quite impressed as she was, with the menu choices. We ordered all different meals (4 of us) and each...More

It really depends...I'd say prob 30-45 min (maybe more) at peak times. I'm sure you could add your name to any list they're keeping and stroll to pass the time.
