Great atmosphere and food

This is a lovely eclectic cafe with some really great food. It's so nice to see a unique spot in the otherwise dull Orange County.

While there are only a few vegan items on the menu, they do them well and I appreciate that they're clearly marked. The servers are in the know about their vegan stuff, and are all really friendly.

The mushroom and "bacon" burger is a must-try; it's extra delicious with a side of rough-cut potato fries. Just make sure check which dipping sauces are vegan.

There's a nice range of vegan baked goods at the counter too. The coffee leaves a little to be desired, but their big range of sweet drinks and relaxing vibe more than makes up for it.

Pros: Cool place, cool people, vegan options clearly marked
Cons: Could do with a few more vegan options

Recommend the vegan mushroom bacon cheeseburger. My husband tried this one-he's an omni and gave it a 7 out of 10. The atmosphere is chill and our girls loved it. Awesome beer. If you like Guinness, try Rasputin. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful.

Pros: Delicious Cuisine, Awesome Staff, Great Beer
