The food at Lydia's is organic, gluten free and very healthy. Some things are also really good, and some are a little bland. The best thing we have had so far is the super burger with the blinis (I would avoid the buffkin--it looks good...More

Although it's in an out-of-the-way location I definitely recommend checking this place out. It's a little pricey (as all vegan places are) but it has good food, great service, and a pleasant atmosphere. I have a friend that eats there almost every day, sometimes twice...More

I won't bore you with a long review. If you are looking raw, vegan, or gluten-free food -- and hopefully all three -- then this is a must stop. We ate there 3 times in a 2 day period, as it was that good. It's...More
