tasty hole in the wall

The Wellness Café is a hidden treasure within blocks of the Capitol. Not many people know about it and inside they only seat 2 - 4 people. From the street it only looks like a place to buy vitamins and some groceries. But, go all the way to the back and you'll find a counter and a menu. Everything is fresh and tasty. I had them cater an event for 100+ and everyone loved the food! They even served the food on reusable plastic plates and took away our recycling. They made it easy to be environmentally friendly! If you want them to cater an event, ask for Turker.

Pros: fresh, healthy food, friendly staff
Cons: TINY, small menu

Quaint, but has issues

Posted on 05 / 16 / 2008

I found this place to be fair in service and slightly pricey but I am from small-city PA where prices are lower. This is a food/vitamin store that has a menu for take-out food or three small table to eat-in. The store items are limited and most do not have any prices which was annoying. Actual food prices were slightly higher than on the printed menu.

I had a great meal, actually two (take-out). It's not totally vegetarian, and they do label vegan selections. Smoothies and a limited Juice Bar selection were available.

If I were to rate this place overall...I would return.

Pros: Vegetarian & Vegan selection, Organic available, Fair portion size
Cons: Prices missing, Longer than desired wait time, Prices higher than advertised
