this was a unique pizza experience. Don't go here if you want the normal chain pizza, these are certainly different and tasty. No meat is available but made no difference. The decor is basic, but adds to uniqueness. I'm hooked and will be returning.

This is not your standard-issue pizza. They're experimenting with toppings here and the combos are not going to be to everyone's taste. That said, the food is fresh, the combos are interesting, and the crust is tasty. They have a nice garden in the back...More

This place is huge, two outdoor or an indoor seating area to choose from. Great staff, kitchy art and menus, above all - the pizza was excellent. If I return to Eugene, i would definitely go here again!

Seriously, bring a snack to eat while you wait, and wait, and wait. It is also expensive. The new space is cool, and the food is good, and unusual, but just not worth the wait.
