I had a very good meal here. I was pretty hungry, so I ordered the "Cup and a Half" meal for $12 which includes a small bowl of soup and half a wrap. The half wrap was actually quite large (probably about 8-9 inches long). I chose the Johnny Apple Wrap, which was quite good, and a little sweet since it contains apples. It was like a salad inside the thick tortilla wrap. The soup that day was potato-leek, which was quite good. I also ordered the Golden Hummus for $9 which included a large ice-cream-scoop-sized portion of hummus, along with lavash. The veggies were very fresh (not dried out), and seemed to have been freshly sliced. All of the food was very good, and I was stuffed when I left.
I read the other reviews and nearly everybody mentions the prices. The prices are expensive for lunch, but for dinner, the prices are about the same as other nearby places, and the food is so healthy. Also, two people could share the meal that I had, and probably be completely satisfied when they leave. I was so full I couldn't finish it all, and I should have just ordered one plate. That same meal with 2 glasses of water would not be excessively expensive when shared by 2 people. The drinks I saw on the menu seemed expensive to me, especially the Elixirs, but I usually order water anyway. If you're the type that orders appetizers, entree, drinks, dessert, etc., you will pay quite a bit here, but it's also possible to have a reasonable meal as well.
I rated the place as 4 stars, because to me, 5 stars is absolute perfection (to me, that means excellent food and cheap prices and good service). The service was a little bit slow, but the kitchen itself seemed to be fast. I warmly recommend this place and encourage you to visit it at least once. It's located in the Biltmore area of Phoenix with lots of shopping and attractions nearby.
Very good food, Location, Pleasant surroundings
Not open very late for dinner, Prices on the high side
