“Try Something different and Yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2009

This is a great find. The food is excellent and it's vegan, raw, and almost entirely gluten free! It was so creative and tasty. I had the "baked" spaghetti special. Wonderful. And the side salads were very good too. Others with me had the falafala and the "hamburger." the service was good with excellent knowledge of each dish and ingredients. the casual and quiet atmosphere was a nice break from the norm. We will definitely go back!

This place is great! It's a raw vegan restaurant in a little strip mall right in the downtown area in Downers Grove. Try the mint chocolate cheesecake. It was super delicious! Completely vegan including no sugar! FYI, if you're allergic to nuts, then you're outta luck...
