I am a meat lover who is trying to cut down. I've been going towards the black bean burgers. The one here with sweet potatoes is excellent, but a little messy because it is not as dense as others. Coming from Lynchburg I found this...More

Excellent food, super service. Melinda behind the counter was so helpful and friendly I thought she must have been the owner, but she isn't!

We were in Lexington 3 days and ate here twice! Excellent quality, fresh ingredients. The Guacamole is fabulous! The sweet potato/black bean burger is delicious! They are getting ready to move to the downtown area. They are in the YMCA right now. Loved this place!

Had one sandwich which sounded great but was actually lackluster. Looked at menu yesterday online and it appears boring.

The cafe is in the entry to the YMCA and gps doesn't steer you well. Lots of good sandwiches and warm plated choices. Fair price and helpful staff. Wish we were in that Y.

The food is wonderful and healthy! Excellent service. Please try if you are in the area. It is a little hard to find if you don't know it is in front of the Y.

Recently named BEST LUNCH in the Shenandoah Valley...Also 2nd best Vegan/Vegetarian restaurant in the valley- We specialize in local product- Beef, Bacon, eggs (our own flock), ginger, produce, sausage, cheese, and more! We are a great stop just off the interstate! Please come and enjoy one of the better meals you have ever had. Located in College Square Shopping Center just off Route 11 (N Lee Hwy). Look for the big GREEN AWNING and that's us (inside of the YMCA). Landmarks INSIDE of the shopping center are Peebles and Tractor Supply. Landmarks OUTSIDE of the shopping center to look for are Suntrust and Applebees
