Absolutely awesome even if you are not a vegetarian! The flavors are so delicious. The juices are "real deal" from veggies - juiced on-the-spot. Try to go off peak hours because the waiting line gets pretty long.

OMG best meal I have had in a long time. I went back a second then a third time during my 5 day visit as I loved it so much.
Freshest ingredients that took what could have been a blah salad to a WOW salad. The juice concoctions where also great.
I actually felt 'high' after eating such naturally nutritious meals here. There needs to be a chain of these places across the country or at the very least in zip code 90013 so I can eat here every day.

Now they did nto get that certificat of excellence for nothing.
We are a family of vegan foodies (with a 3yo with a great palate lol) and had a wonderful experinece at this student style cafe/restaurant, It is too small for the demand. It was full whjen we arrived and even fuller when we left,,,,, mostly with students, which is quite explicable considering its location. I do hope they open another one downtown in Boston.
The food choice is very varied and everything tastes just amazing, your taste buds will be in heaven. We tried sopus, salads, wraps, bowls, deserts, a smoothie.
The price is unbeatable for vegetarian, mostly vegan and ORGANIC healthy food. i would eat there every day of my life.
it was a bit of a challange with our large stroller, we felt we were in the way. the bathroom is sooooo tiny, but unbelievably clean for such a crowded place. it is a very environment friendly eco place, with DIY reclying/composting station.... bright idea. we just love it and when we visit boston again, this si where we'll eat, miam-miam.

Amazing but I've never stood in a queue for to long! We ate at the Salem branch the previous night and it was so good that I wanted to try more.

The only downside of the whole evening is that we had to queue for nearly half an hour to order the food, but one we had done that the food was bought out very quickly and our server very kindly let us order a glass of wine from the table as we couldn't face another 30 minute wait just for one drink! I guess if you make food that good, its going to be damn popular with the locals!

The the sauces here are amazing and are really showcased with the grains and steamed vegetables. I decided to go for their signature Goddess dish with added avocado and it was delicious. If I lived here I would be getting take-out on a regular basis, this place is amazing!

It was a long wait in line, but in the end it paid off because this dishes are flavoursome, wholesome and fresh.
