Hosted a client lunch...fantastic hummus & pita bread starter. Chicken Sandwich on biscuit is the tastiest chicken I have ever enjoyed. Specialty salads were also a hit. Service was outstanding. Look forward to returning soon.

I had a business lunch at Juniper today and it was terrific. My duck confit sandwich was excellent. One of my guests raved about the octopus - reportedly comes in from Spain directly. All around great service and great food. Nice ambiance.

They do have vegetarian dishes. I didn't notice about vegan. Is there a menu on line? Maybe you could check.
