Great Vegan Find in Oceanway!
09 Nov 2014
Earlier today a group of us went to try Jacksonville's brand new, 100% vegan, Garden Truck Eatery! Holy smokes the portions are HUGE for the price. I love their sandwiches and their greens & peas and their lentil herb salad. They bake all their bread fresh in house and the whole wheat and ciabatta are perfect! Try the full juice bar and their smoothies...we sampled the Tropical Oasis smoothie with thai coconut, yum! Can't wait to come back and try the full menu (they just opened yesterday, so not all items on their website are available yet). Great job for your soft opening!
Staff is super friendly and the cafe is tastefully decorated and very clean. Nice relaxing spot!

Best Sunday Brunch!
10 May 2011
Chose this spot for Mothers Day brunch while traveling to Orldando this weekend, so happy we did! Recently converted the entire family to vegetarianism a few months ago, so it was so nice to be able to tell the family "you can get ANYTHING you want off the menu as its all 100% approved by mom!" I just wish there were more 100% Vegan restaurants!
My French toast was so good (I suggest you add the strawberries!) My 9 yr old son really enjoyed his biscuits and gravy (which he had assumed he'd have to give up being vegetarian) and the yummy homefries. My husband got the breakfast burrito and was still talking about it later that night, he is now converted to tofu scramble! Thanks Ethos :)
It was very busy (which means its good stuff) and loud inside, but hey it was Mothers Day (what do you expect). I wish we could have sat outside, very cute area! I suggest you arrive before noon for brunch. When we left around 12:45 the line was almost the back of the restaurant to order.
Bonus for the establishement: I carry a little travel size bottle of Dr Bronners soap with me in my purse. I was shocked when I went into the bathroom and they actually had Dr Bronners in the soap dispenser on the wall! I have never seen it in a public restroom before...you're awesome Ethos!

VERY friendly staff! Was in town for Thanksgiving and was searching for vegan chocolates. A worker at The Chocolate Fetish told me to come here for the biggest selection of vegan truffles. I bought one of every kind. They were all amazing! Also bought a yummy coffee with coconut milk creamer.

Vegan Chocolate Cake
30 Nov 2012
Went to French Broad for the Theros Olive Oil Vegan Chocolate Cake on our trip to Asheville over Thanksgiving. It was good, the raspberry puree on the plate helped to add a little extra something and to moisten it up. Sit upstairs, it is much quieter. Expect long lines to order, it's very popular!

Visited Asheville over Thanksgiving and came here for dinner. Sat at the bar and had the Tempeh Rueben and the Tempeh Cuban, both were very good! Would totally go back here next time Im in town.

One of the highlights of our Asheville trip this Thanksgiving! Lunch portions are huge for being under $8.00, so I cant even imagine how much you get for dinner. Natty bread is soooo good! My kids loved all four of the dishes we ordered, huge success! Raggy Road with Tofu was our favorite! I uploaded pictures of all four of our meals with descriptions. Enjoy!

We visited Asheville over Thanksgiving and ate here the first day. My sons Tempeh Rueben was the best things we ordered. All of our food was very good, althought the nutritional yeast gravy may not be for everyone (good but an aquired taste). Very friendly staff! Love that they compost the food scraps. Excellent dessert selection. The mint tea was very good!

Best Vegan Sushi in the USA!
08 Nov 2014
If you are in Jacksonville, Florida you MUST try Sushiko! An absolute hidden gem in Avondale with a completely seperate Vegan Sushi Menu (also dont forget about the 8 vegetarian rolls on the regular menu, they are vegan too). They will also make any roll you can think of if you just ask. I repeat, this is not the typical token vegetarian rolls you are used to. They even offer black or brown rice in addition to the normal white rice. They go all out with the presentation...at dinner service they use LED lights and dry ice to light up your plate!
All of the vegan rolls are AMAZING! If you want to narrow it down then these are the "NOT TO BE MISSED" rolls: Icy Veggie Roll, Wasabi Peas Roll, Sweet Forest, Garlic Roll, Top Veggie Roll (ask for black rice), JVL Roll and the Fruit Roll!
If you are with at least three people, splurge and share the Vegan Sushi Boat! I have uploaded several pictures (#JVL watermark) so you can see how beautiful their presentation is.
On top of the delicious, fresh, vegan sushi they have the absolute best customer service! The owners (Ellie and Jack) are so attentive, nice, accomodating and even remember all of their customers names! Sometimes they even offer customers free fried oreos with vegan chocolate drizzle and dairy free whip cream!
(***Deserves 6 Stars but Happy Cow will only allow me to rate it at 4 Stars because they serve meat***)

Finally, the first 100% vegan establishement in Jacksonville!!! The rootbeer doughnut and lemon poppyseed doughnut were AMAZING! Also tried the chocolate whoopie pie with a strawberry middle and the chocolate chip blondie bites. All were so moist and amazing, you could NEVER tell they were vegan.
