Great place for vegetarian eat! Enjoyed soup and nachos with coffee for lunch while others ate sandwiches, wraps and pastries. Breakfast offers a wide variety of choices with wonderful potatoes. Biscuits and gravy are a great choice.

We love this place. The selection of food both vege and vegan is amazing. Everything on the menu balances nutrition really well. Food is well cooked and delicious. Even my carnivore husband loved everything he had and didn't complain once that he was still hungry☺️
