Plenty of Options

This is a great place for lunches with coworkers! I went with a guy who loves fried chicken, which he had, while I had the vegan philly, which was excellent. The philly was seitan, peppers, mushrooms and vegan cheese. Much of the menu items were available as vegan, of course not the fried chicken.

Pros: Variety, Taste
Cons: Small Location, Lunch Hours only

I love the vegan Shawarma. Isa Chandra Moskowitz taught them how to make their seitan and it shows. It's so moist and flavorful!

TRY THE VEGAN PHILLY! I swear this has to be the best sandwich I've ever had....and surely the best you can find in Omaha. Also try their vegan delicious! Their monthly vegan specials are always unique and super tasty as well.

Pros: juicy vegan meats, very filling
Cons: only open til about 5:30, closed mondays
