“Good vegetarian options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is the restaurant to go to for a interesting variety of vegetarian options that will satisfy one's appetite. Of course there are meat dishes also. Nice modern development with lots of parking in the back of the restaurant (at least when I was there on a weekday). Interesting atmosphere.

“Best fresh brunch ever ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Delicious and fresh options for brunch lunch sandwiches and sides. Large restaurant meant no waiting. Tho the wait for the food seemed pretty long. Omelets were full of mushrooms and cheese and were right out of the skillet. Lots of vegetarian options too.

“Great Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

This is was a nice find. The menu is awesome the presentation well done and the food is very good. Love to browse the book store. The neighborhood is fun to walk. But parking is really bad.

“Great options for Vegetarians”

A variety of options for those who are looking for a vegan meal that isn't a salad. I was able to choose from both hot and cold entrees and appetizers.

“Fun experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Went here for my son's 21st birthday with his roommates. Had a good choice of beers, burgers were great and atmosphere was lively and contemporary. Had 8 people so called about an hour before and wait on a crowded Friday night of parents weekend was only 20 minutes. We have been looking for 2 years for a nice restaurant close to campus and this was a great place and reasonably price. We will be back.
