Small restaurant with two staff members serving a limited vegan menu with the best cheesesteak in town.

Disgusting! It's very dirty and it's a fake vegan restaurant! I threw my cheesesteak in the trash! I would not recommend going here if you want fresh health food!

A great find! Accidentally found this place while trying to Google Map a different place in Philadelphia. We decided to give this a try also. The environment was really cool. Just a simple place with wooden tables, a great lady (chef? owner?) behind the counter who also was the waitress, and Post Its and cards and notes from satisfied customers... More

This vegan restaurant tucked away on South Street is a must for anyone craving great vegan food at affordable pricing. Yes, they make the best vegan "cheese"steak in philly. I brought carnivore friends with me who could not believe they were eating vegan. Their joy fried rice is amazing, as well as their chow mein, cheese steak and omgosh their... More

After spending "forever" trying to find parking, my coworker and I were happy we spent the time looking. The hot pot is excellent and large (note: Even "medium" is very spicy), and the energy shake is great. Prices are very reasonable. The only downside is service is slow - as one(very nice) lady seems to do both cooking and serving.... More

Incredible seasoning of the seitan for the cheesesteaks. Really liked the dressing on the salad and sushi. Would recommend the coconut cake for dessert. No alcohol served, but plenty teas, smoothies and other beverages. Cool location with groceries stores and bars nearby. Easy public transportation.

Very small Vegan cafe on South Street, very basic menu and even then not everything available. The Salads were generous in size but extremely plain. The owners appear to be Chinese so maybe there were a few Chinese based dishes that they make which are worth trying. Everything seemed clean but again food lack imagination.

Thank RaiDoc
