I am not a vegan ( and pregnant at that) but my husband made reservation here and I was very hesitant. I was very wrong. The menu is amazing. The presentation outstanding and the taste of it all is superb! We ordered the grilled chilies to start and they were wonderful!!! I ordered the lentil croquetes and was amazing at the taste. Wonderful choice for dinner, you will have a whole new appreciation for Vegan food.

We're semi-vegetarian restaurants and when we travel will seek out vegetarian restaurants (of which the enchanting city of Asheville has several). This is the first pure vegan restaurant we've visited, so while we had no apprehensions, were quite curious . . . and our curiosity was well rewarded. This is a nice-looking restaurant in a good location (north of downtown with their own off-stree parking), good ambience, knowledgable and attentive servers and simply great food. Don't skip the soups! There is so much that can be done without a cream (non-vegan) base in what would normally be a "cream soup." The chefs know what they're doing in creating visually appealing food that appeals to the taste buds, and which is so healthy too! Another nice touch is that among the inevitable sweetener packets on the table, they included stevia! So please to see this calorie-free all-natural plant based alternative to sugar and the various artificial pink, blue and yellow packets. We would definitiely go here again on a future trip to Asheville.

Wow! Friends of ours made the reservation. I am not vegan and had very low expectations. I could not have been more wrong. The food was delicious and the service was great. Not sure anything else needs to be said. A truly great place to eat! Will definitely be back.

We were really surprised at how good the food was since we are not Vegans. Very creative menu with an interesting mix of flavors. Would definitely return!

What an excellent eye opening experience for my whole family. If you haven't tried vegan food you need to do so quickly. While in Asheville stop here!
