We loved it!

Healthy couple on vacation looking for something other than over priced fried food. We ordered spicy pb hummus, chicken salad salad, and nachos. Everything was delicious and we had a great time. Altosphere was great, good vibes for sure... Food was totally worth it and the owner was a sweetheart... read more

Been here twice in two months and both times my duo were the only ones there. The tea was good but no refills from the little tea pot that barely filled our cups. Service was less than ok.

I would give this cute little cafe a perfect score but if you don't get there early they will be out of something you want to order. The happens often. I just order something else because it's all delicious. Their menu is mostly vegetarian, some vegan, but you can get chicken. They do wraps, veggie burgers, black bean nachos which... More

Im sitting here now I oredered before the other 3 customers in here and I've been waiting for 25 minutes. Why? There's no one here! How long does it take to put together a PREMADE chicken salad & PREMADE hummus. Just said. Service should be excellent when you have basically NO customers

My husband goes here once a week to try their teas. They are always a hit. Vegetarian sandwiches are great too! Atmosphere is very laid back.

We ask at our hotel if there was a vegetarian or vegan restaurant nearby. The recommendation of the Tango Tea Room was spot on. It's in a funky little complex with some other unique shops. When we looked at the menu, we were overwhelmed with the wonderfully sounding options. They had sandwiches and wraps that could be made with tofu... More

Interesting, laid back atmosphere. Recommend the hummus as a starter, would recommend worldburger, avacado tacos, and the wraps.

This used to be a wonderful little place, Great healthy well prepared food, friendly people and a very cool sort of 60's-70's vibe. The new owner don't really love it, it's obviously just a job and a money thing for them. Half the time they are out of any daily specials and the other half they are out of stuff... More

I visited this restaurant with a large group so we got a good variety of food. They have a magnificent avocado/chocolate pie. Their meals are creative but I feel like more fresh ingredients could be used. I don't know if our service was really slow because our group was a large group but we did spend about 2 hrs in...

A friend took us here for a quick rest stop after scouting locations. What a great find! 60 variations of tea and mostly vegan and gluten free fare. Menu comprises of mostly natural and/or organic foods and the desserts were great! Feel as though you stepped into a hippie world with a throwback to the 60's vibe with extremely friendly... More
