I regularly have lunch here and enjoy it every time. The staff are friendly and service is quick. The food is consistently good and not at all the "same ol same ol" you get in most restaurants. There is something for everyone here -- comfort...More

Lots of different flavor profiles and a variety of choices for vegans to carnivores. Fresh, locally sourced when possible, and delicious. The cuzco cakes made with quinoa and smoked gouda along side black beans and plaintains is so good!

The food here is unique and delicious with many options to choose from.I loved the seasoning and flavors of the quinoa cakes. We also had the shepards pie which also was delicious. They have such an interesting menu it's difficult to choose from..
