I'm obsessed with this place, and I'm far from a vegetarian/vegan. I went with a veggie friend once and absolutely loved it. While the "meat" options don't really taste like actual meat, you don't miss the meat with the flavors they are able to develop. Everything is so fresh and delicious. My favorite are the sweet potato quesadillas. The menu changes seasonally so you never get bored!
It is a tiny shoebox of a place with a beautiful back patio for more seating. If going in the winter when the patio is closed, you may encounter a long wait.
