Awesome store!!

15 Aug 2010

I went on a Sunday and it was extremely crowded! So I would recommend going on a weekday. They have lots of bulk items, like grains, seeds, etc. Also tons of local coffee beans, mor e than I've ever seen in any other store. They've got a lot of raw/vegan items on the shelves as well. Large selection of fresh breads and a HUGE produce section. I'd definitely shop there again if I were in the area.

Huge menu, delicious food

15 Aug 2010

The place is big, bright, and modern looking. The waitress was very nice and helpful. I got the Asian Style Noodle salad, with kelp noodles. It was too pretty to eat! But I ate it anyway and it was delicious. My husband ordered the Portobello Fajita Platter and that was good too. We started with the daily appetizer special: curried carrot chips with tahini dip. It was awesome! They have a huge case of raw desserts, but we stuck with the brownie, because it was small. It was really good. They also sell some raw cookbooks and some other raw items. I'll definitely go back! There's free parking in the garage too.

Delicious food, friendly owner

24 Oct 2014

We've been going to this place since it opened. They started out as a 100% vegetarian cafe with tons of vegan options/specials. In order to stay in business, unfortunately, they are no longer 100% vegetarian. They do, however, still offer lots of vegan options and lots of delicious fresh pressed juices. I tend to order the "Ecstatic Vegan" every time (brown rice and kale, topped with tofu and peanut sauce. It's delicious! They have a pretty diverse menu and are open mostly for breakfast and lunch. The owner (Glenn) is super friendly. Yes, it can be slow at certain times of the day. They don't have a ton of people working there and the food is pretty fresh, so that's to be expected. I highly recommend this place if you've got plenty of time and want some fresh, healthy food or juice. Reason for 4 stars: not entirely vegetarian anymore and it can be slow at times.

Decent food and decent prices

15 Aug 2010

The service was quite slow, but I was only there once and there were 5 of us. It didn't look like there were too many people working the kitchen, so it's not their fault. The menu is big and there are lots of vegan options. I had the macrobiotic platter, which was just ok. The little tofu quiche was amazing, but tiny. The vegetables had no flavor, but added salt/pepper. The kale was good. The carrot ginger soup was quite oily. The "fish" tacos my husband had were VERY good and the accidental free hummus they brought out to start was delicious, with the pesto on top! And their chocolate cake (vegan) was really good too. It's not the coziest of settings, but it's clean and bright. I might go back again if I were in the area.

Excellent food

14 Aug 2010

My husband and I stopped in here after researching online where to eat in San Antonio. We were only in the area for the afternoon, so we ate here for lunch.

The food was excellent! And there were plenty of vegan options, for me. I had the zucchini enchiladas which were absolutely amazing. I chose the mashed potatoes and side of collard greens, both were very good. My husband got the vegan Carne Guisada which he loved. It was a bit too "meaty" for me, but still good. He got the kale salad and broccoli salad as sides. Kale was great (I think the broccoli salad maybe had mayo, so I didn't try it). And for dessert I got the Cookies N Cream cupcake. It was awesome!!

The ambience was nice too. Lots of brick and big windows. The waitstaff was very helpful and friendly. We spoke with Chris afterwards (not sure if he's the chef, or brother of the owner...??) He was very friendly and appreciative. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!!

Clean, good food.

15 Aug 2010

This cafe is very bright and clean. You order at the counter and our food came out very quickly. It's mostly Asian style food. I got the Sweet & Sour Divine, which was as I thought it would be....an orangey Chinese sauce with breaded tofu and vegetables. It was good though. My husband got the curry which was really liquidy and not enough vegetables, but pretty good. We shared the Spring Roll appetizer which was absolutely delicious!! Would definitely get that again. The apple/carrot juice was really good too.

Amazing food and ambience!

15 Aug 2010

Went there for the first time while visiting Austin. We had the vegan Tomato Artichoke soup which was so good! We ordered the Vegetables Rancheros and the Spicy Tempeh Enchiladas, both vegan(or veganized). They were both delicious, but it was a ton of food for the two of us and we had to bring some back to our hotel. I ordered the Belgian Chocolate Cake (vegan) for dessert, to go...and it was absolutely amazing! I'll definitely go back. This place is awesome.

Great salad bar!! Good for vegans too.

15 Aug 2010

I would say this is great if you're looking for a huge salad. The price is right for all you can eat. AND....you can easily look at their website (I used my phone) and look up the daily menu and it will tell you what prepared salads/soups are vegan! That was of great use to me. Lots of vegetarian items (those are marked already). Very clean and the vegetables are very fresh.

Pretty good, but pricey

24 Oct 2014

Bagels are good (especially when they're warm). They do carry vegan cream cheese (Tofutti), but the pricing has been very inconsistent the times I've gone. First time I got a bagel with the vegan cream cheese was a decent price. Next time it was almost double! Yes, it was $2.00 JUST for the vegan cream cheese...that did not include the bagel! They do have soy (and almond milk, I think) for coffee, which is pretty good. Nice space. Outdoor seating too.

huge store

22 Aug 2010

Unfortunately, the vegan/raw prepared foods section is way in the back, nowhere near the other prepared foods section, and so I never got there when I went for lunch. Big beer selection and a lot of local TX produce. Nice outdoor seating, except there are tons of homeless people sitting out there! They carry a lot of local coffee beans, which is great. I wish more Whole Foods would carry as many local products as this one. And they offer Daiya vegan cheese on the pizza they make, although I didn't get to try it there.
