“Makes you smile”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Met my nephew and fiancee there at her recommendation and was not disappointed. The grilled cheese is one of the best and the hummus is tasty and smooth. Recently popped in on way to airport for a to go order and again pleased with my order.

“Try the Sloppy Joe!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

The sloppy joe is unbelievable!! I don't eat meat and miss it sometimes, so this sloppy joe tastes like meat except it is made with tofu. It is wonderful. The fresh juices are also fabulous. The service was great. I will definitely go back again.

This was the last stop on a weekend filled with good food and fun. I only had soup, but it was very good. The menu included vegetarian and vegan dishes.
