I wanted a light dinner and had the gumbo. It didn't have the rich flavours I was expecting. However the menu was extensive and provided a good choice.

okay, i'm going to go five stars here. i typically stay away from the trendie vegan-ish places downtown. i'm not that into lentils or gazpacho. i wish to not need to have another meal after eating out. (and i'm a carnivore and soy gives me hideous 3-day migraines... so i'll just call it like it is.) but a friend of... More

I was impressed with the commitment of this restaurant to serve vegetarian, vegan, and GF food choices. I had the vegetarian New Mexican Pozole and it was intensely good. My sister had the meat version and concurred. Another guest had the black bean burger and it was packed with flavor (I got to have a bite!). The service was friendly.... More

I'm a vegetarian and my husband isn't and it's rare for us to find a place to eat where we both have so many options. We drove out from Morro Bay because the menu was so intriguing. Our meal was so good that we came back a second night. My favorite item was the vegetable plate. Each vegetable was vibrant... More

This is the place to go when you have 8 people in your group and one's a meat eater, one's vegan, one's gluten free and everybody wants something that tastes great! Menu is diverse and they can make _slight_ changes as needed. I've never had a bad meal there. The hibiscus ice tea is lovely add on, especially during breakfast.... More

While there was a line outside the restaurant when we arrived, we were seated in about 20 minutes, which was a perfectly fine wait on a glorious late summer day. The food was great, the space is open and light, service was very good.

On the Road, scrambled eggs, two strips of bacon, two buttermilk pancakes! We have it with some of their homemade yogurt and a spoonful of their homemade jam on our pancakes instead of butter and syrup. Well staffed with friendly and efficient servers. We frequent Big Sky on weekend mornings for brekkie.

we just dropped in for a quick bite, found the most interesting menu choices and almost all the items available are locally grown, organic, or specially made for them. We just had crab cakes and a reuben with great sweet potato fries. It was all delicious.

Outstanding for breakfast or lunch. Excellent service and food. The corn muffins are to die for. I had the kale salad for lunch one day and the vegetarian Huevos Rancheros the next day. Many vegetarian options. Pepper Plant sauce on the table - the best spicy sauce available.
