Always fresh, good service; can relax and have coffee and dessert or a nice breakfast or lunch. I’ve not been there for dinner. Vegetarian. No liquor.

We decided to check out this vegan café based on a recommendation from a friend. The food was very tasty and well prepared, but it was not at all filling after a day of hiking. We wound up leaving hungry and went to Burger King...More
