Yeah, it is kind of hard to find... walk through the front door to the Y, in a strip shopping center. But what a nice selection of salads, wraps, sandwiches and soups! The counter employee walked us through some of the deli case foods, telling...More

If somebody told you that you could get good, healthy, homemade food at the local Y you would think smoothies and green drinks. This place has that and SO MUCH MORE. Like fabulous (two kinds) of fresh, homemade chicken salad, burgers, vegetarian choices, fresh soups....More

I had a club, not a sandwich, but a wrap; it was tasty. We had the address of the Cafe, but the lack of outdoor signage made finding the venue difficult. Worth the hunt, however.

I am a meat lover who is trying to cut down. I've been going towards the black bean burgers. The one here with sweet potatoes is excellent, but a little messy because it is not as dense as others. Coming from Lynchburg I found this...More

Excellent food, super service. Melinda behind the counter was so helpful and friendly I thought she must have been the owner, but she isn't!

We were in Lexington 3 days and ate here twice! Excellent quality, fresh ingredients. The Guacamole is fabulous! The sweet potato/black bean burger is delicious! They are getting ready to move to the downtown area. They are in the YMCA right now. Loved this place!

I love the cafe. They have great gluten free options. The smoothies are tasty. The ingredients are fresh and the staff is happy to meet special dietary requirements.

Recently named BEST LUNCH in the Shenandoah Valley...Also 2nd best Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant in the valley- We specialize in local product- Beef, Bacon, eggs (our own flock), ginger, produce, sausage, cheese, and more! We are a great stop just off the interstate! Please come and enjoy one of the better meals you have ever had. Located in College Square Shopping Center just off Route 11 (N Lee Hwy). Look for the big GREEN AWNING and that's us (inside of the YMCA). Landmarks INSIDE of the shopping center are Peebles and Tractor Supply. Landmarks OUTSIDE of the shopping center to look for are Suntrust and Applebees
