A gem of a place when it comes to food. Our waitress wasn't terribly friendly, but man was it nice to be able to go out and eat nachos! The white bean chili was also delicious!

Had a delicious quinoa salad - but a bit too much dressing, something I thought I'd never say. Great neighborhood and a really nice vibe to this cafe.

vegan and vegetarian food that is delicious, service is quirky and not too great, prices are good, bar is good, the patrons and staff are soooooo Portland, if you're not tattooed you look out of place

Even for a meat eater this place is a great place to eat. Very good! The price is very affordable too for a vegetarian place and in general. I'm a meat eater and it was great. This would be an excellent place to eat if the staff would do a better job at seating the customers. They have a small bar with about 7 chairs tops. They have a sign that says wait to be seated which is a joke even for bar seats. People were wating out side for 30-45 minutes even when they could have sat at the bar asap! Next time I will probably just walk in and sit at the bar and ignore the sign. The person helping seat people eventually went to do everything else too like serve and wait on tables. Maybe they are short on staff during certain times? I will go back here despite the bad service because the food was so good.
