This cafe is so awesome. I had the half order of the tempeh salad and it was soooooo good. The tempeh is mixed with quinoa and their special seasonings. It's all on top of a bed of fresh mixed greens, fresh tomatoes, avo, red onion and cukes. The lemon vinaigarette was awesome. This salad as a half order is HUGE.... More

This small cafe has a vegan menu, and all dishes are prepared there for your order. It is a sort of semi-hippy hangout, very relaxed, especially with the service, which took 30-40 minutes to deliver our, rather simple, order. The food came in huge quantities, and we had to leave a lot in the bowl ( huge soup bowl) and... More

We lucked out on a wonderful vegan restaurant in Morro Bay, California returning to the San Francisco area from a vacation in Los Angeles. It is a small friendly cafe that serves up an awesome and extensive vegan menu. Even though we live 200 miles from Morro Bay, we will be returning. This is truly one of the best restaurants... More

The food is certainly fresh and the place has a nice vibe but it is slow and chaotic and pricey. There were constantly dirty dishes about, tables not cleaned up. People were struggling to find somewhere to sit and in the end the patrons did the cleaning up! Perhaps a bad day but I think the reviews here over-egg the... More

It's a small cafe where there is a set menu but you also have options to choose and get sandwiches, etc made. Very friendly staff!

I eat meat. I'm just going to admit it and get it out of the way. I actually don't really consider it a meal unless it has meat in it. That being said, I had a little trouble figuring out what to eat, since there is only tofu and tempeh (still not sure what that is) and other alternative proteins.... More

Had a very good "TLT," like a BLT but with tempeh instead of bacon. Very filling. Previously had a tempeh tostada which was very good too. Quick service except when very busy.
