I found this place through HappyCow and my boyfriend and I decided to eat there yesterday. Since we are both vegan and it was only a short walk from our hotel we walked down for lunch. I had read the reviews and thought it sounded good but I was left disappointed.
I ordered the "Vegan Burger Avocado", because I read it was the tastiest: it was a microwaved Boca burger on wheat bread. The avocado was delicious but this was NOT a burger. I hate boca burgers, and for a "natural foods" place I would have thought they would have freshly made their own patties or buns but they did not.
My boyfriend got a Taro burger, which like mine, was a microwaved frozen burger on sandwich bread. We both agreed it was SO much tastier and the avocado was also delicious on his sandwich.
These sandwiches did not come with any sides so we ordered a salad which was iceberg lettuce, shredded carrots, sprouts, a few tomatoes, and what tasted like Wishbone Italian dressing.
If you don't have anything else to eat I would recommend going there, but we found some vegan sushi in a grocery store a few days ago which was in my opinion a lot better and less overpriced.
At around $20 for the whole meal, I thought they were making a good profit off our frozen and cooked sandwiches. They did serve our meal fast but why shouldn't they? It was frozen food anyway.
They were really friendly and did answer our questions fully, but for someone who has eaten at really great vegan burgers for the same price, I had much higher expectations.

Not fresh, Expensive
