I've been here several times over the past few years. When I first started going the food was amazing and the portions generous. Yes it was a bit more expensive but I was willing to pay it to support a place with vegan foods. However, lately I have gone and like another reviewer mentioned it has a strange smell and it doesn't seem clean. The cooks I have seen appear dirty and they often have their children running around playing inside the dining area. The smoothie bar is rather gross and falling apart. If you look at their vitamix blender the containers are EXTREMELY clouded and that is a breeding ground for bacteria. I also invite you to notice how poorly they clean their cups (if you sit at the bar you will notice what I mean). The food also isn't the same as it used to be. The taste is off and when I order an avocado sandwich I don't want black streaked avocado that tastes gross. The portions have shrunk considerably as well and presentation isn't what it used to be. For example: sweet potato fries, I paid I think 3 dollars for 1 small potato where you used to get a plate of them for the same price.
The good desserts are no longer sold and the specials are really hit and miss. The dressings taste watered down and the smoothies leave something to be desired.
I used to LOVE this place and now I'm really sad. I've decided to stop going for reasons mentioned. I didn't know about the owners changing but it would make sense. None of the old staff seem to work there and it appears to me its the new owners bar tending and cooking. (they are rather rude fyi I warn you)

EDIT: I say the owners do most the work because one day while sitting at the bar waiting for my to-go order the female cook and male at the bar started arguing and swear at each other about how to run the business. It was unprofessional to say the least and swearing infront of children REALLY Bothers me.
Cons: sanitation concerns, rude staff, pricy, run down, limited select of vegan foods,, not tasty anymore
