Super friendly, super delicious! Any Vegeterian in a 75 mile radius, get in your car. I had the special: Acorn Squash and a side of creamed spinach. It was one of the most tasteful Vegeterian meals I have ever had. We had a 45 minute wait but it was well worth it. Just check out the stores down the block... More

On a recent visit to Williamsburg, we were lucky enough to find this amazing restaurant. We liked it so much, we went 2 nights in a row. There were 5 of us each night. No one had a bad meal. I only wish this restaurant was in my home town. I would go every week!

Surprisingly, the place was really busy - had to park in the Ripley's lot next door. Really surprised at the wonderful, varied menu. Atmosphere was great,... More

This place has it all and more. Unique atmosphere, great service, and most important fresh and healthy food! That last item is often the hardest to find when traveling. We had dinner and enjoyed it so much that the next day we stopped by for lunch. Great menu and again, very healthy options! I even bought a T-Shirt which is... More

We loved this place and ate here twice when we visited Williamsburg. I am gluten/sugar free and they had a gluten free menu. They served wonderful gluten free rolls and had a delicious Paleo dessert.
