The food here is really good and there is a nice selection of drinks and smoothies. The deserts are decadent, as they should be. I’ve been here many times and always enjoyed my meal.

This place is on Wilshire, well away from 3rd street promenade. It's a very down to earth kinda place. The food is hearty and filling. Great taste. You MUST try the Hot Maca with soy, cinnamon and of Maca of course. Delish!!! If you value the service of Wifi - they do provide that too.

One of the best vegan restaurants ever! A large menu of delicious looking items. We enjoyed every morsel. The bakery is wonderful too. Best vanilla vegan cupcake extra large for more pleasure. Highly recommend this place.

I know that sounds pretty bold to say but I am not kidding. You have to try The Works Burger! I didn't realize it but I had been wanting that for a long time. The tempeh bacon just blows your mind. The staff was very friendly, service was quicker then I thought, cute little place, yummy desserts!! This will be... More

It tasted wonderful and I will... More
