Even though it took longer than expected to make, the food was great. I had the Pasta Basta and the flavor blew me away. The staff was super nice too.

Pros: Great tasting food, Good variety, Friendly Staff
Cons: Took a long time, Small, Expensive

She thinks she is your mom.

I went to this restaurant with my mom and grandmother. Both non vegans who eat vegan food when I buy. We all ordered something different. The owner tried to push the kale keish. I said I wanted the soup. She ran out and insisted on me eating that so without options I did. I didn't like it at all. I threaded dishes with my grandmother. The Soup was good. She didn't like the keish and gave it to my mom. My mom pulled out a hair from the keish. We stopped eating it.

When the owner came to pick up the food she gave me this look like I was a child who didn't finish my vegetables. She looked so hurt and disappointed. She asked if we wanted it to go. My mom said no. She asked again. My grandmother said in Spanish "for the dog?" I think the owner understood and didn't pack it up. We didn't tell her about the hair we found.

Pros: Vegan options
Cons: Hair in food, Pushy owner, Runs out of menu items

The food was different/raw with good presentation and organic image. All the items we ordered were delicious as well as the drinks.

Pros: delicious food, good variety of plates, many vegan options
Cons: expensive, limited parking
