Great food!

Fantastic food - many vegetarian/vegan options. The avocado sandwich was great but it was way too much food. Definitely for two people! The smoothies were so good!

Just ate here for dinner, had the special - Rice and Beans. Not only was the food exceptional, but the staff were super friendly, the music was choice classic rock, and the owner shared some local Kombucha with us. Will definitely be checking it out for breakfast!

Flora has a creative menu that appeals to the health conscious. Food is colorful, fresh each day and so appealing to the palate. A refreshing change to the same.

Stopped for smoothies and lunch, and the food was just excellent! Vegetarian, fresh, healthy ingredients, and warm staff. Loved the Lentil burger and the Green smoothie!

My close female travelling companion and I decided that this was going to be a restaurant where we would obtain food from one afternoon. I will preface this by saying that we are familiar with cafes and restaurants of this nature (quality, local ingredients, gluten-free options, smoothies, kombucha, and so on..) from our own Canadian home towns. So I was... More

I parked my bike and enjoyed a great breakfast by myself just watching the bikes and sloths pass me by. Well, not the sloths, but the bikes and an occasional car. The staff was nice.

Closed and taped up by some bureaucracy! How awful! Luckily I got to try it before this happened and it was pretty good. I thought the service was good and the Wi-Fi is great too! A bit expensive, but quality food often is!!
