I was so excited to find a place so close to my hotel that sold vegan food and was open late. The vegan and vegetarian menu items were very clearly marked. The food was good and the staff was nice. I would eat here again.

My hot dogs are here served cool. The cold slaw was ok. I traveled 40 miles and to be honest it wasn’t worth the trip. Disappointed with the food.
