Wonderful economical and tasty. You place your order, the menu is unbelievably yummy, pick up your order and eat at a lovely table outside or in. The salmon is awesome. I'm going back!

Fresh, artistically presented, local, farm food served in a casual, very friendly establishment. We had stuffed Serrano papers in black bean sauce and chicken with corn and peach salsa. Both delicious! Reasonably priced, easy to get to, easy parking on the weeknight we were there....More

Traveling down the NY thruway and happened upon a great lunch place. Tons of vegetarian offerings, craft brews, great atmosphere, creative food and presentation. Vegan cookies tremendous. Would recommend the falafel and eggplant sandwich and all the salads were terrific. Friendly staff.

Pricey for what you get. I ordered a tempeh dish, and it was not as tasty as I would have liked. A lot of people love this place, however.

We tried this restaurant based on Trip Advisor rating. We very much liked our salads and the restaurant so much that we returned the second day for lunch again. Staff did not seem very personal at all, but presented a good product.

The Main Course is well-decorated and has an inviting atmosphere. We had never been to a trendy restaurant like this before, and the staff was very helpful. The dinner options were varied and well-priced, and also very good. It is a must-visit during your time...More
