Harrisonburg is not the center of anyone's culinary universe. This restaurant is trying to source from locals and provide an economical meal. I had the Nigerian chicken bowl. it was pretty good, but not sensational. My friends had the chili and the taco bowl. All were adequate, but not fabulous. The staff was extremely nice, and if I lived near... More

Stopped in on the way back from the Greenvalley Bookfair last Saturday after looking for a place on Trip Advisor. Had high hopes but was somewhat disappointed. Three of us had the Tom Kah Gai Bowl and the fourth had the Marco Polo Bowl. I'm a small person who doesn't eat much, but even I thought the servings were meager,... More

Picture perfect -- yes. The website pictures really do represent the delicious food items. Our favorite is the Marco Polo bowl of spaghetti. Delicious!

Fresh local organic ingredients skillfully blended into delightful dishes. The breakfast buffet was amazing. Eat healthy and support a mindful local business where social responsibility is a priority.

This is a very creative idea, internationally themed dishes all in a single bowl; fresh ingredients, lots of flavor, and really really good bread. All very nourishing, enjoyable and satisfying. this is an order and the counter and then take a table kind of place, which was fine for me, but if you want waitress service etc., then this is...

This is a gem- we enjoyed every morsel we put into our mouths. The Thai bowl was superb- served with rice. My husband got a stew that was very flavorful. You will find every taste is satisfied here- if you are not so adventurous- you will find Italian and mac and cheese. They also have a great selection of bottled... More

I live 2 hours away from the cafe and the package arrived via delivery, wrapped in insulated box with cold pack. The Wild Tom turkey soup with carrots, celery and... More
