“Try the sweet potato fries!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

Portion size was appropriate for lunch though I think the fries were 70% of the plate not the BLT. Worth a stop if you are looking for a quick healthy/veggie meal.

“Ate here twice in two days!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Great food, locally sourced. A food court side and a restaurant side. Vegan and vegetarian choices. I have the Imperial Incan the first night - beans, quinoa, corn, and sweet potatoes. Yummy. For the second meal, I had sweet potato coconut soup - delicious!

“Local and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

I love that Firefly cares about local and fresh products and has great waitstaff but what keeps me coming back is the creativity and execution of amazing dishes. That and they have the best Shrimp Scampi ever. To make this dish taste fresh and downright healthy can't be an easy task. But they did and do and we love Firefly!

“OMG LUV THIS PLACE U NEED TO EAT HERE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Good:
Great food, Great Price, Friendly Service

Bad:
cafe-style seating, need more healthy drink choices

Summary:
OMG LUV THIS PLACE U NEED TO EAT HERE! The place is
Mostly vegan and vegetarian, but a few non-veg dishes so you can bring your friends!
I am also gluten free, and the waiter was helpful in selecting items. My entree was the perfect portion for a starving person, if you eat light you'll have leftovers. Yummy YUMMY. Sweet potato fries taste awesome and are gluten free!!!! Is a cafe style with indoor and outdoor seating [no reservations], bathrooms around the corner which belong to a group of stores, easy to find, but in the city to have to pay for street or lot parking. But, they need more healthy drink choices and currently only carry cow's milk for coffee [which is available in house or to go].

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

It was out first time eating here and I must say it was really pleasant. The food was great ( I had a BLT panini) and my daughter had a kids panini, that was a little small for her, I must say ( she went for a second order). Service was excellent and the menu looked great. Must recommend :)
