We are not Vegans and did not realize this was their specialty. We did not enjoy the food but perhaps it is much better to the Vegan appetite. This rating is probably not as fair as it would be if we had other experiences at...More

We visit Friday Harbor a few times a year and always stop here for a wonderful meal. The food is beautifully presented and always delicious. The wine is also exquisite. Can't wait to come back!

Well, I am sorry for your experience. It certainly is not the opinion of the 1000’s before you this year or the full restaurant last night when you arrived. Curiously, as one looks through the comments, the items you ordered are our most popular. Not...More

We picked this restaurant not knowing it was totally vegan because we could not find a parking space in the downtown area and they had a parking lot. Noticed it was highly reviewed on TripAdvisor so we thought we'd give it a try. What a...More

A natural wood decor with live edge bars and tables in a 1891 vintage victorian house creating a rustic but refined feel. A wide selection of food styles created in our vegan kitchen creating great flavors in a variety of styles. Our foods are paired with a large selection of NW Beers and Washington Wines allowing tastes by the ounce, by the glass or by the bottle. Our dining areas are family friendly and our outside read are also pet friendly. Open 7 days a week and truly the best place to meet our interesting locals.
