Big menu with great veggie options, the enchiladas (tofu, artichoke, cheese) were all amazing. Loved the cashew sauce and guac. Live harp music during lunch was unexpected and pleasant. Service was friendly and attentive. Prices were fair and portions sizeable. Would definitely go back.

Great wholesome vegetarian food. They were happy to make GF modifications to the menu for us, and provided crayons and a highchair for our son. They're also dog friendly, with a water bowl out front for our pup.
