Choose a veggie or a beef burger and you will be in for a real treat! If you call in your order and include their delicious sweet potato fries they will not cook them until you arrive to assure that they are hot and fresh!...More

Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can’t go wrong. Scones for breakfast, burger or fish sandwich for lunch, Buddha bowl or burrito for dinner. Ask for extra garlic with sweet potato fries. Just wish they opened at 8 a.m instead of 9 a.m.

Best place for vegan, vegetarian, and meat eaters. It is fast casual, you order at the register and food is delivered to your table. Love the Buddha Bowl with tofu, vege, brown rice, and peanut satay sauce.
