My husband and I are vegan at home, but often eat vegetarian when we travel because vegan options are more difficult to find. This place provided a really fantastic menu with lots of delicious vegan options. The restaurant itself has a charming ambiance and the service was great. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who wants a healthier... More

I have been here 3 times with my adult children. They all live the vegan meals. Today my husband and I had sandwiches. He chose the mahi mahi and I had salmon with pesto on a multigrain. The portions are large- I took 1/2 back to my condo. The food here is fresh and diverse!

We visited the Cafe twice in three days based on vegan recommendations. I'm not vegan but have vegan friends. I had a mahi sandwich which was delicious and the picture below was of the Benedict of the day...it was polenta with shrimp. My friends enjoyed the tofu, spring rolls, French toast, biscuits and gravy, and the salmon Benedict. We all... More

This vegetarian friendly restaurant offers good food and drinks and service was fine.The tables need to be refinished since they are wooden and have accumulated lots of "stuff" over the years. They are sticky and this makes it hard to control bacteria and germs. The bathroom was not very clean.

Casual place to grab dinner. As a vegetarian, I really enjoyed the spring rolls, empanadas, and pizza. My husband enjoyed their non-veggie options. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

As a vegetarian, I knew where I was waking into. My significant other however was not pleased I didn't warn him and as a result we only had drinks and an appetizer. however after we had the appetizer, he admitted we should have stayed for dinner because that was really good! So don't surprise your meat eating compatriots, but do... More

After a morning of walking through museums this was superb. We were hungry and footsore but sick of the normal take away fare and this was simply perfect. The veggie burger was super as was the teriyaki tofu, udon noodle soup too, and a veggie key lime pie better than anywhere else. Best thing was you did not feel flat... More

Food was awesome, service was terrible and table was in a bad spot. It took 40 min to get our food after we asked for it. The tables were so close to each other that we could smells the other patrons breath. Just awful if it were not for the food.
