I was in town on business before Christmas, and found this place just before I left. When I came back after the holidays, it was one of the first places I came back to. Really friendly, passionate staff and just fantastic vegan food are a great combo. I can't get enough of their chick'n.

My supervisor took a few of us out to try the Broad Street location for lunch yesterday. It was my first visit and I had the hipster chick'n ranch sandwich and we shared sweet potato fries. Sandwich was delicious as were the fries. For a small location, the service was quick and the staff were friendly and fun. I'll be... More

Have eaten here at least a dozen times. Found a few things I like and I order them often. Each time I have -- very reluctantly -- branched out, I have not been disappointed! Amazing veg food. Always very busy, but they handle it well. If the line is long, people will come out to the line and start taking... More

I visited this establishment during Philadelphia Marathon weekend. I'm always searching for amazing vegan food whenever I visit a major city. I loaded up for my marathon race and the food was excellent. It was very busy when I ordered but they got orders out in a timely fashion. I'll have to try their breakfast menu next time I visit.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here which included my husband and two teenaged children. Staff was friendly and food came quickly. All of it was very tasty. The fries were fabulous and crispy, which doesn't always happen with sweet potato fries. The "chicken" tasted quite authentic as far as I can recall chicken tasting, as a vegetarian it's been...

This place has a great atmosphere and a great vibe. I'd been looking for a vegan place for lunch and as soon as I walked in I knew this was it. The staff were really energetic, and even in the lunchtime rush the other customers were friendly as the place got crowded with orders. The taco salad was excellent and... More

Was kind of hard to find and really small, NO place to sit at all. Very cramped, got ginger lemonade and kale smoothie. Neither tasted like they had kale or ginger in it at all. Tasted like filler fruits like banana and apple.... the food didn't look that great anyeay...

We had the steak sandwich (rich, hearty, meaty, big) and the fajita wrap (savory, smoky, peppery) - both were delicious. The seitan in the sandwich was well-seasoned and not overloaded or greasy (but big!). The filling in the wrap could have been steak for all I could tell and seasoned perfectly. We had a side of sweet potato fries. I... More

My first visit here and it won't be my last. A nice place to get vegan fast food that doesn't taste like fast food. The place is very small, and I was lucky enough to grab a small table so I could eat my salad. The next time I'm in town, I'll definitely be heading back there and trying something... More
