Been there for lunch several times--very interesting, delicious food; fun to be there. Right in town so can walk around; parking is not a problem; many healthy choices.

Loved it here, so many healthy options and interesting salads, crepes, sandwiches... Had to park on the street but this was manageable. This is a great vegetarian/vegan find. Not cheap, but fresh and filling. Glad we stopped in!

Food was fresh and served promptly. Interesting menu full of crepes, fresh juices + smoothies and more. We each got a "lunch" crepe and split a dessert one too, and all were delicious!

I had brunch here for the first time this weekend. I was really excited to see an ample amount of vegan options: crepes, fillings, desserts, soups, and salads. It was a Sunday morning around 11AM. Free street parking was an easy find, and our group of four didn't need to wait for a table. We ordered at the counter, and... More

We go to this restaurant several times during each summer and always enjoy it. It has the healthiest food in the area;is well run; and offers disabled students the opportunity to learn the business. The crepes are always good. My husband likes the hearty sandwiches. The Tempeh Reuben is his favorite sandwich.It would be great if they added a few... More

Delicious food and good coffee! I had the dill tuna with fresh sprouts, tomato, and spinach on flax bread. Stacked high, it was good to the last bite! My husband enjoyed a ham and cheddar on sourdough. Our coffee was fresh and refills were available. Wish we had had room for the delicious-looking pastries - next time!

Looking through the options this cafe seemed like a good idea for a last day holiday breakfast and we were not disappointed. We tucked into pancakes with strawberries and bananas, Greek yogurt, granola and a side of dressed salad. Sounds weird, but it worked. The coffee was great too and the staff very welcoming. All in all we would be... More
