Reviews 4.5/5

Excellent vegan food! I will definitely be coming back ! I had the bbq pork bowl which was delicious! And had the key lime and shared an oatmeal creme cookie sandwich with my kids! Sooo delicious ! We aren’t vegan but enjoy vegan food, so for those unsure of vegan food this is a great place to try as it is just really good food overall!

Good place for Vegan eaters! Wish we had something like this in my city. Their Nashville sandwiches is good with a perfectly fried patty, the sauce could have been on the spicier side. Their fries was the highlight for me, thin crisp, and some seasoning with chipotle sauce.

Melissa Harrell 3/5

Most of the food we ordered was good and delicious; however, the downfall was the Szechuan Asparagus, the Thai Beef Bowl, which had like 13 chile de arbol peppers in it and the delicious, yet, disappointing Oatmeal Crème Pie cookie. I say disappointing because the cookie just crumbled and it barely had any crème in it.

I’ve been to the other location and it was good but this location is ALWAYS SO GOOD!!! I am in love with the food! Also the oatmeal crème pie and cookies are really good. I recommend %100. My go to for when I craving a good sandwich

This was my the first time here. I am very pleased with the food and service! I absolutely love the fact that there is a cookbook for sale! Thank you for an awesome experience! 😊💌

I can’t do a second review but it looks like my pup is a fan! 😂
