“Great discovery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

We've eaten in Gainesvilles many times visiting our daughter and she had been and recommended it. When someone mentions vegan dishes I automatically turn my nose. I was pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed great burgers (with MEAT) and a great craft beer selection. The menu looked great with a lot of variety. We are going back for our next visit.

“Eclectic decor, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Something for everyone here, vegan, meat eater, and vegetarians all living in harmony. I had the Texas Melt and my husband the blackened tuna tacos. Filling, reasonably priced. The decor was eclectic, to say the least, and the music loud. Otherwise, worth the atmosphere and wait.

“Worth the Wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Very good food, get there early or expect to wait and good hearty food. I had the Pancetta and it was cooked perfectly. If you order the Pancetta, skip appetizers or you will need some one to carry you out!

“Not just for hipsters!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

The food was really delicious-especially the sweet potato fries. Lots of veggie and vegan choices that are wonderfully prepared. Good vibe-nice decor and totally popular with the locals.
