Gorgeous pizzas, lots of Vegan choices. Had the Daiya pizza, closest thing ive ever had to the real thing since turning vegan! The base is nice and crispy and the sauce and cheese is yuuuummm! On a hot day though, this cafe turns into a oven. It was so hot in there I could barely bare to stand and wait... More

One slice really does fill you up nicely, but if you're especially hungry, the 3 garlic knots for a dollar are splendid, and the vegan chocolate cake slice is scrumptious.
