“Healthy and delicious”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

A bowl of Good features home made soups, breads, salads, and sandwiches. Much of the emphasis on the soups is foreign--lots of Caribbean black bean, African chicken stews, etc., nicely seasoned, using local ingredients. Located a stone's throw from Eastern Mennonite University (known for its musical programs, international education, and peace and justice studies) and a fair trade shop, it is a good place to get a quick meal before a concert or shopping.

“Pretty good...”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

The Green business practices are great and I like supporting places like this. The food is pretty good but not amazing. I had the chili over rice. All the ingredients were fresh but the dish wasn't seasoned very well. I added quite a bit of siracha to it. (It was cool they offered siracha) my friend had the curry chicken wrap. It was above average but not to die for or anything. It looked better than it tasted. Again not a whole lot of flavor. We both thought it need a stronger curry taste. I had the limeade and it was unique and Differnt. She had the southern tea and it was very good.


Overall a good place to grab a quick lunch.

“Quite nice”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

This small cafe has many vegetarian options, and the food is fresh and tasty. The staff are quite kind, and the coffee is uniformly good.

“Tucked away but little spot!”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

If you are in the mood for something healthy, fresh and eclectic, this is your place! A fun atmosphere that is community minded and mission focused as it is attached to a fair-trade boutique. If you go, try the Hibiscus Tea or Coconut Limeade. We haven't ever had a bad thing on the menu and typical meals are $10 and under. I definately recommend!

Reviewed October 25, 2011

Traveling from out of state, we found this place by accident. The food choices were wonderful and interesting. The food itself was delicious. A pleasant surprise added to our trip. Very reasonably priced. Food is ordered at counter and picked up when ready.
