I visited here with family and one member is vegan. The waitress was great, she had a fun personality and was attentive without being in your face. The variety of food on offer was extensive and they could be tailored to individual needs - allergies, vegan or vegetarian all catered for. The coffee was plentiful and nice. I had the... More

We're so used to going to restaurants, even "vegetarian-friendly" ones, where there are really only a couple of not-meat choices: for instance replacing meat in any dish with tofu. Not at Hugo's. There are many, many unique non-meat dishes as well as some good meat ones, too. I had an Indian plate that was a special right now, not on... More

Service was good. Food was incredible! We got the Cuban sandwich which was incredibly good and also chicken sandwich. The menu has gluten free vegan free items as well. You don't find this often.

If you have friends in both camps, Hugo's is your place! A deep and unique menu with something for all - everything from indulgent to health minded (and all of it delicious!). We started with an order of amazing sticky buns - crispy on the outside and donut consistency on the inside - warm and out of this world, drizzled... More

We booked Hugo's based upon other trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The service was attentive , but not intrusive, the sommelier was knowledgeable, did not push us toward the most expensive bottle of wine, but the one he thought fit our palate. The food was outstanding and the price very reasonable because it was a complete meal. It... More

Decor is old fashioned and doesn't look much from the outside but that doesn't really matter so long as the food is good, which it is! We need to eat gluten free so it was great to see such a wide choice of gluten free options. They also cater widely for vegan and dairy free too. The food was good... More

Great food, great service. Healthy and none healthy all tasted great. Its just that the place looks and feels rundown, but definitely doesn't reflect on the food experience or quality. Was there regularly while here.

Thanks for not letting the exterior put you off. It has been 16 years since we opened and we realize a makeover is due. We're working with our designer now on a fresh look. When you come back, check it out! More

Lunch was a bit of a wait on a Sunday, but we were surprised at what a varied menu there was. It looks like their aim is healthy, good food, and they achieve it. There are a lot of vegetarian vegan, and gluten free options. I can see why it's such a popular spot. Their parking lot was full, but... More
