Great place with vegan and gluten free selections prepared to order using local ingredients whenever possible. Comfortable dining areas inside and outside with pleasant, efficient servers.

I'm adding my 5*****s. Been wanting to go here for awhile. Like the others, I was put off by the list of cuisines on the outside thinking it was overly ambitious. I watched the outside transformation and bided time. And tonight was the night! Prepared if it was booked (it was ), but they seated us with no problem. I... More

My girl and I were riding motorcycles from Edgewater back to Ft Lauderdale. We were in the mood for Mexican. Not being familiar with the area we took a chance and pulled in this restaurant. Immediately impressed with the outdoor seating area on a huge wrap around wooden porch. The ambience was very pleasant. Our server was Carrie who was... More

To be honest, this restaurant's name was what detracted me from trying it! The name brought to my mind some hippie coffee shop with torn leather couches and hummus. But it has gotten such great reviews and I needed a new place to try, and boy am I glad I did! The restaurant is small, and cozy, decorated in a... More

We tried this very popular spot in downtown historic Melbourne soon after opening. We have watched it become busier and busier, and an outdoor seating area recently added. We stopped for lunch today. I had fantastic fish tacos, my wife the gyro plate. The fish was hot and crispy, served with a black bean puree and Spanish rice. A spicy... More

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we detoured off route 95 traveling from Saint Augustine to Vero Beach to have lunch at Nomad. I had the pulled duck sale and my husband the deconstructed cottage pie. Both were excellent. Service was pleasant and efficient and the atmosphere calm. Very happy to recommend it.

My husband and I ate here the last night of our stay in Melbourne. I had the vegetarian dish which was excellent. We would definitely revisit next time in Melbourne. Good food, comfortable environment...nice wines. Menu is really interesting with unexpected surprises. They do use organic local ingredients in most dishes.

There are too many reasons to eat here that can't all be put in a review. Just go eat here. Prices are good, food is great (& most is locally sourced!), atmosphere is nice, servers/managers are very nice and knowledgeable.

I hate leaving a restaurant feeling unsatisfied! Although the inside of the restaurant is pleasant and comfortable, the exterior still looks like a converted gas station. Takes away from that first impression creating a sense of " ohh-o ", what am I walking into? The staff is very nice but get ready for a 2 hour dinner, service is slow... More
