I am not from the area either, as another reviewer said, but I was in my quest to find vegan restaurants. The food was good I had the special of the day, blackened tofu sandwich with avocado and a side of salad, it was rustic and good, could be a little better if they toasted the bread a bit more and the avocado was a little more fresh, had a little black, and the side salad had lettuce that was a tiny wilted but their smoothies were amazing!. I had a concern though, they also serve regular food and I was wondering if they keep the kitchen utensils separated, I did not want to be a pain and ask. The place looks really busy and the person who takes the orders was a little bit in the weeds. overall was good enough for a vegan that had not other option, it has a tremendous potential, but they need to get a bit informed, I asked if the chips in the chocolate chip cookies were vegan or carob chips and they look at me like they did not know what I was asking...overall was good.
