Great vegatarian alternative

Great place for non meat options. Sweet potato fries and black bean dip were addictive. The barbeque sandwhich wasnt bad, just too much bread in my opinion. The philly cheese steak was seasoned great but a little messy and sort of greasy. Again a little too much bread but otherwise good.

Awesome alternative to traditional meat sandwiches. I had the Buffalo Bella, and it was amazing. The menu has everything listed as a traditional sandwich restaurant would, but all of the protein items are non-meat and plant based, which is cool because it is like ordering a normal meal instead of asking for a vegetarian/vegan substitute. Try the fries with the... More

Went here to grab a bite while working late in the office. Had the Fajita Wrap. Very flavorful, filling and delicious. Great mix of ingredients.

Loved it! We had the chicken club and the crispy chicken sandwich. Both were delish! And it was fast, which is a huge plus given that we were starving! We will definitely return!

Cool concept but I think the food could be a bit better. Its really a 3.25/4, but I had to round down. Some of the salads are pretty good. The curry tofu is a pretty good add on. The rolls I'm not a huge fan of.

I want to go back and get everything on their menu. It's a small place with a few tables, but I got take away, so it wasn't a big deal. The menu is on a board on the wall, but there are a few "specials" or juices written up behind the counter. I got the Crispy HipCity Ranch buffaloed. OMG.... More

There's plenty of hip/gourmet burger places that offer a veggie option...and they're usually good. But you still have to eat them whilst inhaling grilled beef particles! No such worries here...just great and tasty vegan burgers... and lots to choose from. Sweet potato fries very addictive. Could do with more seats, but I'll be back anyway.

I am lactose intolerant and am used to having "fake" dairy products but this milkshake tasted like real ice cream!! Would certainly recommend, as this is where I go to my treat myself! Also would recommend the banana whips with brownie topping! Mmmmm

Crowded at lunch time as everyone wants to enjoy the delicious food and drinks. Orders are taken very efficiently and staff is very nice.

I am not a vegetarian nor a vegan but this food could convince me otherwise. This is a great restaurant with very fresh food. There is nothing much I can add other than: Try the food! i would give it a 4star only because it is better as a lunch spot and not as dinner romantic place.
