My husband is a reluctant vegan and I am enthusiastically vegan and we both loved this place. He had the perogies, with sauerkraut and bacon. The perogies would have stood on their own, but the bacon and sauerkraut were delicious. I had the roasted vegetable salad with tahini dressing and it was wonderful. All this accompanied by Upland IPA on... More

It was so delicious. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE VEGAN SCRAMBLE!!! I left completely satisfied! The staff was attentive and the atmosphere was completely chill. We had run a 50M race the day before, so being allowed to linger without feeling pushed out the door was very much welcomed!

The food here is very good. I especially love that everything on menu is Vegan - this is very hard to find! I am usually here during lunchtime in between classes, and it's always easy to find a table. The portions are generous, even if they look a bit smaller they always fill you up! Careful though, they always charge... More

I gave this place a second chance after a disappointing lunch. I thought a rice bowl was a safe bet. The miso bowl was so disappointing; all of the ingredients were so bland, and the dressing that came with it had way too much garlic. The waiter dropped my check without checking in mid-meal or asking me if there was... More

I wanted to take my daughter and her friends out for brunch. One young woman is vegan, and another allergic to nuts, so our options are sometimes limited. We decided to try the Owlery because of it vegan-friendliness. We all loved it! Between us, we had omelettes, pancakes, TVP sausage, the lentil breakfast. All was delicious. They also offer a...

I love the Owlery! They offer hearty and flavorful options that omnivores and astute carnivores enjoy and the place is full of owls! How much better can you get?

This is the place for vegetarians to confidently bring their carnivore friends, The warm and friendly atmosphere is matched by elevated home-style cooking. We love the coconut macadamia tofu appetizers as well as fish tacos, the sesame miso bowl, the southern plate, and the red onion jam sandwich. Really good sweet potato fries, too.

You must try the vegetables sandwich. You can add avocado for $1, but you don´t need that, since the sandwich is already spectacular. The sandwiches come with a side, and the sweet potato is always my first option and they come in a good size. The rustic potatoes are also good, but too greasy for me.
