This place is tiny but super cute. Their specials are up on the chalkboard wall and the tables/seats are eclectic. Plenty of vegan options and they can change up your order if you have dietary restrictions. Plus the bathrooms are a hoot!

This vegetarian restaurant, owned and operated by a meat eating chef, is always creating very tasty and beautiful dishes. I have never been disappointed. Specials are creative. Makes you wonder why you always thought meat made the meal! Never again. This is a small place so seating is limited...and it's worth the wait. Prices are moderate and fair. Service is... More

We had eaten here many years ago and fondly remembered it on our recent return to Northampton. We were not disappointed...in fact the food was so amazing that we returned to eat here nightly. We figured why not eat in a restaurant where you know you get great quality and a great meal. We tried something different each night and... More

Just had an unfortunate interaction with the owner (chef). After waiting 20 minutes to receive our bill (while sitting near the front door - cold) I decided to call and tell someone we had been waiting and to send our waiter with our bill. Instead of simply relaying the message the owner brought our bill out personally and told me... More

We went for lunch because we heard that the place can be crowded at dinner. The food was excellent with a nice attention to health issues.

Excellent food with a unique flavor that was not at all overwhelming or heavy. One of the best vegetarian restaurants I have been to. A small place, but worth waiting for a table. The food sometimes takes a while to come out, but it's because it's so fresh and hot when it's served. Looking forward to visiting again soon!

Looks like someone's house - only 10 tables. But the BEST food anywhere. And it's vegetarian! Reasonable prices, friendly wait staff. No liquor license but you can bring your own beer. Part of the fun is walking around and seeing what other diners are eating. Love it! We go here all the time.

This was my first visit to a vegetarian restaurant. We went with friends who recommended it. I was presently surprised with the great variety in the menu. The service was excellent and so were all our meals. We will definitely return to try another vegetarian dish. If you are looking to try a vegetarian dish I highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent food & service. You wouldn't guess judging by the small exterior, but inside is a magical warmth. Inviting atmosphere, healthy, clean, delicious. A joy to dine there!

Agree with all of the positive comments. Plus, last time I checked you can bring your own wine and beer. Better bring glasses and decanter and cork screw too. Closed on Sunday last time I checked.
