Owners must be woke because wait is 45 minutes even though 50% of the tables are empty. Owners should learn to be AWAKE instead of WOKE.

Before I even attempt to enjoy the food--- I was incredibly off-put by the ordering process and passive-agressive argumentative staff. Wasn't able to call and speak to a human being at all--- and when I arrived to pick up my food, the email instructions I...received including no mention of pulling around to the back of the place and parking in a numbered space. I simply suggested adding that information to the email instructions. Instead of saying--- hey that's a good idea, I'll suggest it to my manager-- I got nothing but argumentative pushback. I am a life long vegetarian, and I've traveled around the world enjoying many dining experiences... this was by far the most difficult place to order from. And when I politely offered a suggestion, it was rejected and the staff threatened to "go get the manager to explain it to me" No thanks... Never again!More

This place is incredible. Everything is absolutely delicious. Salads, sandwhiches & cookies were all a hit. I wish I lived in Austin so I could come here every weekend. Vegan heaven.

Excellent brunch. We had the blueberry cornbread which was wonderful. It does not need the syrup its so good. The smokey joe omelet was even better. I could not believe brunch could be this good. Will go back if we are in town again

I am honestly a picky eater, and trying to be vegetarian sometimes complicates that, but this was some of the best vegetarian food I've had in a while. It was seasoned well and cooked to excellence. I tried some of my friends' dishes and I...didn't find one thing I did not like. My only suggestion is to plan ahead for parking because their lot seems to get full and tight very quickly.More

I’m always a little scared when I order something vegan because I love my cheese, but honestly the flavours were so good I didn’t even miss the dairy! Fun place, definitely would go back again :)

Vegetarian doesn't have to mean earnest but I would say the food here, while good and healthy, is not bright with color or flavor. I had Fajitas Italianas, with roasted portobellos - I ate it all but was not delighted. I like the atmosphere -...Austin for sure. I will definitely go back again and again, partly because my friends love it. Service is relaxed so if you need an hour for girl talk you can do that.More

Not used to vegan food, but this place is great. I visited with a few friends, and we all agreed that it was really good food. Convenient location and great ambiance.

This is a very informal place with cleverly designed vegetarian dishes. We enjoyed both of ours, which as I recall were an enchilada plate and italian fajitas. Service was friendly but not fast. Open late, seemed to have breakfast late but we did not test...thatMore
