My husband was not excited about eating dinner at a vegan restaurant but agreed to go because I wanted to try it. All I have to say is that he requested to go again the following night! Nice atmosphere, good menu selection, friendly wait staff and excellent food. The live nachos are definitely worth getting.

We enjoyed a very tasty lunch and breakfast here. The service was friendly and we never felt rushed. If you've ever been curious about vegan food, this would be a good place to experiment! Try their cinnamon roll...to die for!

So many excellent choices that we ended up ordering tapas style. Cuban bowl was awesome, the nachos were phenomenal and the dessert rocked as well.

Wonderful restaurant! I stopped for lunch and had a cobb salad with coconut "bacon" and was just blown away at how flavorful and delicious it was. I have been craving that wonderful salad ever since and will definitely stop here again on my next journey to Portland.

This place is great! I got the pot pie. It filled me up fast because it was rich. The prices seemed reasonable for the food. The hibiscus berry lemonade was to die for. The soy curls were also a great appetizer. The service was superb. Other restaurants could learn from this place. We got there about 45 minutes after it... More

My first visit to a vegan/ vegetarian bistro and it was recommended because they have gluten free products. It was a very good experience overall. The tofu omelets tasted good and side kale was wonderful. The fresh juices were also excellent.

Another local gem! A wonderful little (very little, be prepared to wait!) restaurant run by true foodies. They use organic, local produce and prepare inventive, tasty, and truly healthy meals. It's not cheap, but neither are the ingredients they use. They serve scratch-made, organic, real food. I had the pot pie and my friend had the tacos - both were... More

Small restaurant which is very popular thus long wait for a table. No reservations accepted so be patient and order drinks while you wait - maybe sitting or more likely standing. Sounds bad but the staff did everything possible to make us comfortable. Just a place that could use some more room. Service was friendly, food was good and reasonably... More

On the weekend's their menu is brunch during the morning and afternoon and then changes to their dinner menu at 5:00 pm. First visit and happy with food. My husband is a devoted meat eater, but he was very pleased with his biscuits and gravy. Gravy is described on menu as chorizo, but it is vegan! Yum, first biscuits and... More

Although I am not a vegetarian, I really enjoyed the Blossoming Lotus. Wait staff were wonderful. Salads, sauces and main dishes were excellent. I walked there from my hotel near the convention center. It's a great choice for those who love healthful, well-prepared dishes.
