On a sunday afternoon, I came here to get a cheap vegetarian meal. As we all have only one chance to make a first good impression, the decor leaves much to be desired. It felt like a soup kitchen for the disenfranchised. The Cafetaria style setup requires you to have your food served to you and items did run out when my turn came up. The salad bar was missing than half the 8 items. The typical soup was great as the kinoa patty. The rice and beans could have more flavor. For $4.50 the price is great but there is much room for improvement.

Pros: Cheap, Great Soup
Cons: Awful Decor, Cafetaria Service, Items Missing

Good dinner option, but limited choice

The atmosphere here is pretty non-existent, it's 1970s style plastic cafeteria chairs in a big mostly empty restaurant. BUT, it is open for dinner! Also, while there's not really a menu, they are happy to tell you about the vegan food that is available. The veggie burger was one of the best things we had in Colombia, the "crepe" (a potato / soy meat enchilada) was pretty good, and the "steak" (soy meat in odd sauce was OK. The food is dirt cheap, and the staff are very friendly. We came back to get a second veggie burger on another night, they were that good.

Pros: Open for dinner, dirt cheap, amazing veggie burger
Cons: No atmosphere, Limited menu
