this place is SO SO good. everything we had was delicious from the salad, the fries, the tacos are amazing, and we also tried the croquet (which is hard to find vegan or veg). the iced American was also strong and amazing and our host...was delightful.More

Gave this place a few shots. First time they added extra charges for potatoes to salad on my plate which is kind of the same thing and didn’t let me know. It was a ridiculous amount that they added as well. Could have probably bought...a whole salad elsewhere with that. Second time, I paid more $ there than at nice coffee shop in the U.S. for two iced americanos. They up charge their coffee so much and every time you go it’s a different price. Funny thing is you let them know about an issue and they don’t even try to make it better. I tried to like this place so third time there, their food actually made my friend and I terribly sick for a whole week! Never again with those prices and those bad luck experiences. Better off next door at Ojo de Agua:)More

Im a local in Playa del Carmen and I frequently order take away from here. I would say this place is hit or miss, almost every time there is some ingredient missing or switched out for something other than what is advertised on the menu....In the old location it was great food every time, the quality was much better, I guess with a bigger location and more clients the quality gone down. My last purchase was a carrot cake for 110(!) pesos, it was basically crumbles and again not as advertised, for the price Im expecting it to be great every time, but unfortunately the quality is inconsistent. It's too bad because when they get it right it's probably the best vegan food in Playa.More

We had an amazing vegan breakfast here. An open faced bagel sandwich with tons of fixings and my wife had a breakfast burrito. Both dishes were amazing.

I had a nice vegan omelette and a cappicino . Asked what kind of milk I wanted in it. And was charged extra. Also had a tax added to my bill. In all the ten years I have gone to restaurants in Playa this has...never happened. I check my bills very carefully when they are presented, this was a first.More

Vegan delight. Even for us non vegans! Just across the street from our condo in Coco beach this has become our favorite restaurant in Playa. Food is delicious and presentation is always delightful. The Youthful Yellow is delicious. Today we had the mantra salad with...dressing on the side. And the tomato soup with grill cheese and which...way too much food for 2 of us... we sit on the front patio and enjoy the day....give it a try, I do not believe you will disappointed...More

We stopped by for a quick lunch and will definitely be back! The menu is amazing and the bagel and falafel we tried were perfect. Can’t wait to visit again.

We ordered tacos( which came out cold), and a salad...Tacos were about 7.00 , for 3 of them. The filling was hard to determine, it’ seemed like a conglomeration of things, with no special taste. The salad cost 7.00, very expensive for non organic lettuce....When we received the salad, the plate was half full. I mean, how much can non-organic lettuce cost? Fill it up guys. Service was horrible, there was only 1 person waiting on the whole place, thank goodness it was not too full. Our friends ordered the impossible burger which consisted of a lot of bread, and the price was outrageous, 13.27 usd. The burger was fried on vegetable oil. (We asked). They do bring you water. It was about a 30 minute wait to get served. There is no restaurant parking, you have to pay to park on the street, which is a little complicated with the meters. Won’t be back.More

Had a few lunches here. So good. I don't find vegan pancakes often so made a point to have those one day. Menu was good so that I could try something different each day. They run out of desserts though. Had the brownie our first...day there, walked over to get a brownie the second day there but after that, no more brownies (they are good). We stayed at a hotel a block away and it was nice to have this option so close by. My friend that I was traveling with is not vegan and he really enjoyed it too so good for all.More
