I've tried this place many times over the years and am still baffled by their cult of followers. I've never had anything here truly memorable or really tasty. It is primarily raw but nothing innovative or that raw foodist werent doing years ago. They use a lot of cashews which are never raw due to the way they are extracted. They are the cheapest and most acid forming nut though. Priced (small portions) and geared for yuppies it is no suprise they are in with corporate Whole Foods now and expanding down to Los Angeles. Despite all the positive propaganda and lip service their business actions speak louder than psycho babble. SF has so many amazing places this is not a place Ive ever suggested people try.
Anyone who needs further evidence of their anti-labor/people/cult policies should read this.
I wouldn't give them one cent ever again. They truly have NO ETHICS.
