Even meat eaters will find this food tasty and satisfying. The restaurant is now called Heart Beet Organic Superfoods Cafe, with pretty much the same menu as before. It's hard to pick a favorite meal here, but I guess the Buddha bowl is my go-to...choice usually. I also like the coconut curry soup called Flourish, and the hearty Mighty Thai Salad. Their desserts are delicious. The seating area is small, so I often do take-out, and it just has street parking.More

I love their Buddha bowl and juice bar, you can absolutely find something that will taste diving here! The curry is also great - so many choices. It is not cheap, but very healthy and lots of options. It is surprisingly slow - for a...carry out type place - but everyone is so chill, that you don't mind waiting as they assemble your delicious meal.More

I thoroughly enjoy the meals here and try and go when I'm nearby. I need to eat gluten free and vegan so this place has so many items I can eat, it's a treat to come here. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly and...service is good too unless they are super busy, then, like any other place, it may take a little longer. If you know your going at a busy time, look up the menu online and text them to order letting them know when you expect to arrive. It works well for both me and Thrive. Enjoy my favorite: Buddha Bowl with red rice, quinoa topped with James, greens and other tasty and very items. Yumm!More

Bought a groupon for this place to try while on vacation. We aren't strictly vegan but enjoy eating less animal products when we can. We had the Super Bowl Salad. It was so full of flavor. My husband and I shared the large size and...it was filling. We also had the miso soup which was good as well. If you are in the area I highly recommend this place!More

We have been there before and enjoyed the food tremendously... Great flavors in the Sauces. Their selection is very good too. They have a lot to choose from. The have three sizes of plates "small, medium and Share" the share is great for two people......But to make any of their plates a deluxe for 3.98 (for 1/2 an Avocado and some sprouts) is a bit out of line... I would also say all of their general prices are a bit high. I understand that organic food is more expensive... But come on... No cooking, so no major electric or gas bill...More

I haven't been here for a few years, but last week's lunch was phenomenal! Cold & rainy out, so I opted for the Thai bowl since it was served with steamed red rice& quinoa. Freshness of the veggies and the yumminess of the peanut sauce...made this a 'go-to' menu item for me. The mid-sized portion is really quite big, but I was really hungry and polished it off.I wish I could remember which smoothie I had because it was great. Also tasted a friend's which tasted just like a thin mint cookie in smoothie form.More

The Buddha bowls were excellent and the soup was delicious, and although I liked the food I feel like it was nothing special. Was definitely expecting a restaurant vibe, so I felt the space left a little to be desired.

I was lured here by a groupon that I had purchased awhile back, which is a great inexpensive way for me to check out new restaurants. First of all, I thought thrive was a weight loss eating program, which is why I had never tried...it prior. But, it is actually a brand that promoted healthy vegan eating. Usually when you think vegan, a carnivores initial thought is "bland" or "flavorless". Boy was I surprised by this small cafe that had the tastiest dish called the Buddha Bowl!! Super healthy...and super tasty!!! Of course since my groupon was actually enough value for two meals, I tried the Thai bowl as well, which I took to go and ate for lunch the following day. Super good!!both bowls were quinoa bowls filled with veggies and kale, and their secret sauce was amazing and indescribable. This place made me change my mind about vegan food, and I have bought yet another groupon so I can return.More

First time going to Thrive. I got the Thrivalicious warm grain bowl. It was very filling and delicious. Lots of good-for-you grains in there with plenty of vegetables and toppings. Very satisfying. I also got a slice of the Tiramisu Magic and was not disappointed!...Silky smooth and rich texture and flavor. Delicious from the first forkful to the last. Ample portions. I'd definitely come back here to try some of the other items on the menu. Good food and healthy to boot.More
