I am not a vegan but I loved my vegan omelet. Breakfast sandwich also got good reviews by the group. And Jason is an excellent barista!

Found this place by accident. It was full on a Sunday night with an enthusiastic crowd. It's in a strip mall full of "ethical" stores like Roots grocery store, but this is a sophisticated restaurant with an upscale menu. The service is fast and friendly The food is amazing and wold satisfy non-vegans easily.

On the way to the airport we stopped to have lunch at Great Sage and our meal was far beyond great!! Everything was delicious, a plant-based paradise! The "crab" cake salad was flavorful and the Reuben was spot on! Save room for dessert! Vegan tres leches! Incredible! Meat eaters will be impressed as everything was so flavorful. Definitely a great... More

Vegan cooking can be very tricky due to its effort in replicating flavors and textures found in non-vegan versions. What Great Sage falls short on are on the dishes that pretty much fall in the domain of meat and dairy desserts. But what it does best are in those that lean heavily in the vegetarian department. Such was the case... More

I'll put this out there first - - I'm not vegan. I'm not even vegetarian. I went to try it with my vegan daughter, and would not have gone on my own. I felt like I went in with an open mind, but couldn't find much to like about it. The service was excellent. We sat outside, and even though... More

Brunch at the Great Sage offers a lot of choices that are delicious for vegans and non-vegans alike. Start with one of the amazing cinnamon buns but make sure to share - they are large and you need to leave room to enjoy your breakfast. The quesadilla was a generous portion. I could only eat half! The pancakes were gobbled... More

My grandson is vegan so we take him to a restaurant of his choice every year. We are not vegan but this food is fabulous. I had a quinoa bowl filled with goodies, my granddaughter had the macroni and "cheese". I tasted it and could not tell is was not real cheese. Everyone was pleased with their choices. Staff very...

Had a birthday lunch for our daughter here. The food was very good. First, I am a meat eater and I also have some dietary restrictions. I found myself enjoying the meal and not missing meat at all. I started with a white bean and vegetable soup. Very tasty, only it could have been hotter in temperature. For my lunch... More

I am NOT a vegan or a vegetarian and this meal was amazing! The flavors were bursting out of our meals. My husband who believes that meat must be served with every meal is raving about his Hearts of Palm Crabcake and the Spinach and Artichoke Dip was the best we've ever had.
