This vegetarian friendly restaurant offers good food and drinks and service was fine.The tables need to be refinished since they are wooden and have accumulated lots of "stuff" over the years. They are sticky and this makes it hard to control bacteria and germs. The bathroom was not very clean.

Casual place to grab dinner. As a vegetarian, I really enjoyed the spring rolls, empanadas, and pizza. My husband enjoyed their non-veggie options. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

So don't surprise your meat eating compatriots, but do... More

After a morning of walking through museums this was superb. We were hungry and footsore but sick of the normal take away fare and this was simply perfect. The veggie burger was super as was the teriyaki tofu, udon noodle soup too, and a veggie key lime pie better than anywhere else. Best thing was you did not feel flat... More

Food was awesome, service was terrible and table was in a bad spot. It took 40 min to get our food after we asked for it. The tables were so close to each other that we could smells the other patrons breath. Just awful if it were not for the food.

First impression was when I was waiting to use the restroom and a pretty young woman came and asked the two of us waiting if this was the "queue for the loo." Yes I was waiting, but there was an international feeling. The photographic collage inside the restroom featured Mr. Spock and Frida Kahlo. The place has personality that's for... More

We ate lunch here one day and picked up desserts another day. All the dishes we ordered were very good. The truffle fries were great! We picked up the vegan key lime pie and red velvet cake for dessert. The key lime pie was good but the red velvet cake had a strange aftertaste. Would definitely go here for the... More

Half vegetarians and half not in our group and all fully satisfied. Loved the butternut squash empanadas and tangerine iced tea. Nice upbeat colorful ambiance.
