“Everything I hoped it would be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

We had the teriaki tofu salad, yam soup, and rippin' fish soup. All ingredients were fresh and the results superb. We ate our fill but didn't feel overstuffed because of the low salt and fat. Plus, the building itself is very charming.

“Vintage Establishment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

The setting is an old 19th century house so the ambience is quaint, cosy and inviting. There's a "chill" courtyard for AM coffee meet up or wine in the evening. This is an unassuming, relaxing atmosphere so if you are in a hurry or demanding of constant attention this may not be the place for you. I hear they can get very busy so I have only been for coffee or wine during the week. It's small, intimate and artsy and I enjoy the patio solo with a book or laptop or to meet a friend during off peak time as it has such a calming vibe then. The menu is extensive with veggie options and fresh ingredients. The staff is friendly but the service is very laid back.

“Always Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

This is a place we always try to get to for a meal when visiting Oceanside / Carlsbad. It has quality food, freshly prepared, and many vegan offerings. Cool ambience, too! Try the freshly juiced drinks, turkey chili, and carrot cake :) Everything is delicious!

“Nice Organic Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is a wonderful place to have breakfast. The breakfast plates are hearty, almost too much. The coffee is great. Organic. Will satisfy the vegetarian too. All served up in a cute Victorian-style house. Casual atmosphere.

“Yummy dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

I was so happy to find this great restaurant in Oceanside. We usually have to accept mediocre, not too healthy food when we visit. This place had great healthy food with great flavors. The good beer on tap made it even better. We got our own room upstairs, making it even more intimate and relaxing.
