Stopped in for breakfast on a Saturday, right as they opened at 8am. Ordered a slice of French toast, an egg over easy, and coffee. The French toast was amazing! It had an ever so slight hint of fruitiness, served sprinkled with powdered sugar, syrup...More

I was very impressed by the menu choices here, and the option to order any dish as vegetarian or vegan. I had a breakfast scrambler and a smoothie, and my companions both had burritos; everything was delicious and beautifully presented. There weren't any tables available...More

Small place run by volunteers makes it unique. Everything mad to order from local produce. The soups are great and the salads are great. The entrees are so good that you would give up lasagna with meat!

I keep coming back and never get tired of the tried and true flavors offered here. I can't get enough of all the options and the only complaint is that the space is to small for when the whole family comes along.

Expect a very, very small restaurant. Inside seating for about 8-10 people. Outdoor seating (front sidewalk) available. The food will surprise you- it is great quality and relatively fast. Great healthy menu. Many interesting options- my black bean burrito w/sweet potato was perfect. Clean, funky,...More

None of the pretension of health food. Just good folks cooking up great tasting food for a reasonable price. Very neighborly, amazing diversity. Very Riverwest.
