I ordered the birthday cake milk shake and birthday cake pancakes. I would have had no idea I was eating vegan food. They were the best shake and pancakes I have had. I also really liked the atmosphere. You can tell the place is popular...More

Honestly, this place is every vegan’s dream. My only complaint is that the portion are big and so I couldn’t try everything. The mozzarella sticks are no joke, they are incredible. And the chicken and waffles is just like... wow. You need to go here....More

Not sure about a hotel close by because I live in NYC - but wanted to let you know that you can’t make reservations and there’s usually a wait - so just be prepared to wait for a bit before you’re seated! You can download... More
