I am not a vegetarian, but the food in Inn Season is wonderful. I take my vegetarian wife there frequently and score lots of points! I especially like their PIZZAs- it is about the only place I can get real WALNUTS on them. I recommend arriving early since otherwise, there is a line out the door.

They have excellent healthy and very tasty food. Specials are interesting and worth trying and I also enjoy the Szcheun Stir Fry w/spicy peanut sauce. Brunch is very good there too!

My daughter suggested we dine here after yoga the other evening. I absolutely loved Inn Season Cafe! I am really trying to eat healthy, however, I am not vegetarian. The salad I ordered was so delicious and I had the most healthy quesadilla I have ever had in my life. Everything was super delicious. The restaurant had such a quaint... More

Eclectic atmosphere, occasional lines, always good food. They use local, in season food with a menu that has lots of variety year round. Tasty, beautiful presentation and they have local root beer kombucha that is locally made. If you're looking for something a bit different, Inn Season Cafe is the place to go.

A very pleasant place with a nice atmosphere and good vegetarian dishes at a reasonable price. Call ahead - hours are a little bit quirky.

This restaurant has been around for ever. In my 20s I didn't really appreciate it because I wasn't trying to eat healthy food. Once I rediscovered this restaurant though it's really a unique way to get creative with some healthy food. I came here with my sister who had a hard time ordering her food because nothing sounded good to... More

So we're not quite 100% vegan. Neither is this restaurant. They have a few diary items, but that's not a deal breaker. Good food, good service. Not very expensive, decent value. We'll be back.

It was an awesome looking menu, I had the Caesar salad, but I saw a server carry the black bean burger out of the kitchen to another patron and I should have ordered THAT! They had ginger Kombucha, and the after lunch coffee was fresh. Our server was busy, but we lacked for nothing. I will return for that burger.

My husband and I are vegans. We drive 45 minutes to come to the Inn Season! LOVE it. There is a large selection of entrees and on Sundays, there is a lovely brunch with a vegan omelet that I could easily eat every day. In fact, I've gotten many items on the menu more than once and it's always amazing... More
