Delicious vegan choices

We eat here often since its only a few blocks from our house. We always sit in the back on the patio. You wouldn't know it's there, so make sure you ask to sit there if you like being outside.

Excellent & friendly. Don't be in a hurry though. Be sure to try the Brussels Sprouts and other vegetables!

Home made food made good! Really small restaurant, serving really good food! I know, I am repeating myself! Easy parking. Even if you think you don't like brussel sprouts, you will like theirs! Leave room for dessert!

Everything we ate was delicious. The hummus was the best I have ever had. Hope to be back again soon.

A very nice restaurant, not fancy but very good food! There isn't much seating and the hours of operation are not extensive so best to set a reservation.
