We arrived at the end of their lunch service but they welcomed us anyway. The food was awesome and healthy. I had the spinach delight, which was probably the best salad I have ever had. My husband had the tofu plate and he said it was delicious. The waitress was super friendly.

Love this place & all the vegetarian options that are super delicious! Went with friends & had a smorgasbord of good eats. I recommend the chickpea burger, spicy cheese slaw & deviled eggs!

We love this restaurant for a quick lunch without it being from a fast food restaurant. This is great local fare. We love the falafel, so good and served with a side. The wait staff is always pleasant and knows what we like.

Stopped in for a quick brunch on a road trip from TN to DC. The service was excellent and the food (all made from local ingredients) was very tasty. We had deviled eggs, hoppin john for my son, monte cristo for me, and rice bowl for my husband. Everything was very good. And they made a delicious iced coffee. Only... More

My daughter and I visit Firefly frequently. We LOVE the grilled veggie pita. I especially love the spicy collards.

We came here on a scorching hot afternoon. I am always hopeful when I see a vegan place with gluten free options. What was odd was that they propped their front door open. Thus the air conditioning inside mixed with hot air from outside and huge clouds of flies came in and swarmed the place. Not good. We had lunch.... More

Food presentation, aroma, and very pleasing to palate! Moderately priced and the establishment is a definite Arnold one-line - I'LL BE BACK!

I got the roasted veggie wrap and added chicken. Yes the vegetables were yummy and even the quinoa was good, but don't add chicken to anything! It was either old or super over cooked AND it was a $2 up charge for it!. I don't think I'll ever go there again which is a shame because there just aren't many... More

Sitting in a food court is not always my favorite way to eat. We arrived in Roanoke and were pleasantly surprised by how many vegan options the town offered now. We chose Firefly Fare and enjoyed the food though not quite top of the line, it was tasty and ample. The folks working there were very good and knew what... More

I had the tofu steak and my husband had the Indonesian BBQ. The food was excellent. They swapped out the cheddar grits for black eyed peas and quinoa.
