“Delicious vegetarian food”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

A diverse menu of vegetarian fare means that no one leaves unsatisfied, whether or not they eat meat. Daily specials, herbal iced teas, friendly staff. Creative twists on faithful veg ingredients. Located on a lovely relatively quiet side street amongst shops; downtown convenience.

“creative vegetarian food”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

This is a great restaurant - the atmosphere is relaxing and the staff friendly. The servers offer suggestions. A good place for meat eaters to sample being vegetarian.

Such a large selection of fresh and interesting dishes. The ambiance is very calming and fun. If I always ate here I could be vegetarian!
