I have eaten here many times over the years. Their breakfast is usually quite good. You can get thing with breakfast that are not available many places. However, my wife and I were here for lunch today. I ordered the lamb burger today. First time I ever got this sandwich. It was very good. Probably the best sandwich I have... More

We did some research on Tripadvisor ahead of time to find a lunch spot with some healthy and vegetarian choices. This restaurant is not fancy; it's in a bustling strip shopping center and is "fast casual" style (You order food at a counter and food is prepared and brought to your table). They were quite busy at lunch time but... More

Delicious smoothies, a large variety of baked goods, good soup. I'm full and happy. Many gluten free and vegan option as well.

Located in a strip center, so doesn’t look like much. Come inside & it’s a large popular restaurant with a broad menu. Specialties include salads & salmon burger. Fast counter service. ‘Hippie’/ organic vibe with emphasis on healthy food.

We stopped in here to find a band playing (wonderfully by the way) and food that was amazing. Wife had been here before but I hadn't so I didn't know what to expect. Food and desert was fine. I will return next time I have the opportunity.

Fun place to get some good healthy food. You order at the counter and find your own table or seat. Good food but not inexpensive.

When I don't feel like cooking breakfast, I go to Middle Way Cafe. I always enjoy seeing the new art on the walls from local artists. The food is usually very delicious, and they can make a latte without burning the coffee.Try something off the specials board, which has never let me down. A great place where all the locals...

Initially visited for brunch and found a smallish line that moved fairly quickly, though the order staff at the counter failed to inform us what the wait was for delivery of food to table, and this was slow. The choices were large though oddly we missed the breakfast menu that ceased earlier than expected. We got help from a server... More

We hit this place up on the way to catch our plane out. Left us pretty satisfied and happy. I'd like to explore their menu a little more to see if it gets better. Counter ordering then they bring your food to your table.

Thank Jesse T
