Great place for a healthy meal!
Posted on 08 / 06 / 2009
I went here yesterday with two friends from work - one veg, one meat eater. I was really pleased with the place!! I had the fruit and cheese salad (apples, grapes, walnuts, and goat cheese with raspberry vinegarette), the other veg friend had the asparagus salad, and my meat eater friend had the chicken quesadilla. The salads were HUGE!! and very filling! We all bragged about our meals and definitely plan to go back. For beverages, I had water but my friends had the tea and the limeade (which both appeared to be made there on site) and liked them. One dislike we had - we ordered the fried tofu appetizer and didn't care for it. the outer part of it was dry and overall it just lacked flavor. but our entrees were another story - great:) So when i go back i'll be trying a different appetizer. i was tempted to try some of their desserts b/c they are all homemade there but i was too full.
I thought all menu choices seemed to be healthy overall. I thought it was a good value for what i ordered. Some of their hot platters were 14 bucks which for lunch seemed a bit high. but they have the same menu for dinner/lunch and the hot platters seemed to be more 'dinner-ish' to me, which usually does cost more on average. The staff were friendly and helpful. Its a small casual seating area, which suited us just fine. You order at the counter and then seat yourself. No plastic wear - its real plates ,real silverware and real cups! i definitely liked that! even for water, theres no bottled water. they have a big filtered water cooler:)
I'm definitely going back and hope others will give the place a chance. next trip i've got to try the Thai Peanut Salad:)
Lots of great choices, HUGE salads!, big affordable portions
fried tofu appetizer wasn't good, no vegan dessert choices
