This was a fun place to eat, good menu, food and service were very good, and you get the fun of eating at a unique restaurant. Worth a trip for the whole family.

We were attracted to this restaurant because it was voted best vegetarian restaurant in the Houston free press. I can understand it. Many of the dishes I saw at nearby tables looked wonderful however I had a turkey burger with fries. The burger was perfectly done and the fries were excellent. Neither was greasy in the least. My partner had... More

Traveling many places. I try to find different kind of restaurants to enjoy the spirits of the neighborhood. Found this cute place with great food. I had "FishTacos", great Lime Pie with a honey wine / mead. What ruined it for me as much as I tried to stay positive was the waiter. Telling him it was the first visit... More

The restaurant has very cute Tolkien decor like a Hobbit house on the shire with higher ceilings. It reminded my wife and I of restaurants we have here in Portland, Oregon. We came on a Sunday afternoon where the restaurant was busy, which is a good sign. The smoothies and fruit drinks are made from scratch. My wife had the... More

I love this restaurant and try to go whenever I'm in town. The fresh selection of vegetarian fare is hard to beat and the portion sizes are insane. I usually get the Valinor which can easily feed two. Parking is tight at peak hours. Be sure to check out the quirky decor.

It is a small place, slightly hidden but it is a very pleasant place, the food is original and tasteful, excellent service and a very original menu. Not a sofisticated place but a must to go for a new experience

Loads of healthy options on the menu as well as their spin on the usual favourites. Don't go here to order a burger, order some of their healthy, funky dishes. You won't be disappointed. Very cool vibe, cool staff, cool place.

As a Lord of the Rings fan, I had to visit this restaurant to see what it was about. The decor was what you would expect, plastered with memorabilia (old and new) though most of the comfortable seating was outside. Thankfully it was a nice day so the outdoors seating was rather pleasant. There was a lot of choices on... More

This is a great place to go to eat outdoors in Houston when it's not in the heat of summer. Their outdoor space is very nice and it's large. It's also off the main street so there are no cars whizzing by and polluting your experience. Indoors is okay, especially if you are near a window. They have a varied... More

Great vegetarian options...we each tried a different wrap + soup, and everything was delicious. Get the grilled veggies and hummus in a wrap - a light but filling lunch. Others tried the tuna and other meat options and were pleased as well.
