I am a carnivore but I like good food. This delightful restaurant offers enough delicious food to make you forget that you aren't vegetarian. The food is wholesome, tasty, and filling.

This is my favorite restaurant in the area. It's all gluten free and vegan but I've brought many gluten-eating non-vegan friends here and they love it too. Overall lots of healthy delicious options. Definitely go Wed nights to try their wings.

Are any of the dishes Keto friendly? (No grains, no rice, no pasta, no sugar, low carb, high fat and moderate protein)? If so, please do suggest one or two items and I will definitely come by and check it out. Thank you!

I found the staff to be extremely helpful and they asked specific questions re: allergies etc. Best bet is to phone or go in and ask. They are wonderful.

I'm actually not sure, I've never gone in for a coffee. If they serve it, I can't see why not. They are incredibly friendly people
