Awesome little shop and restaurant - Edit

Great shop and restaurant combo named from a Hemingway quote. I know they have lots of vegan and vegetarian options, but the vegan chocolate muffin is my go to.

The shop is neat; has some niche items, but they’re priced accordingly.

Pros: Great veg options

Cons: The shop is pricey

Excellent restaurant! :) - Edit

I eat here all the time! Love the food, so many great vegetarian & vegan options. Mostly any item with meat in it can be substituted for tofu or a veggie patty, even some of the daily specials. And they also always have one vegan soup special of the day. It's hard for me to trust places are truly vegetarian/vegan but I've spoke with the head chef (who is super nice) on multiple occasions and I trust full-heartily in their food. Great place to take veg and non-veg people!

Pros: Great options

Laid-back, Food Options for Everyone, Mostly Healthy! - Edit

Ever since the new ownership took over, this place has been a great place to relax, eat, share with friends, even meet for business meet-ups. Like the food, staff, they don't cram health in your face, but its there for the taking. Its not as busy as the larger outfits because the owners want the pace to be casual. But that may not last with the growing trend of "being healthy". Anyway, I like to hang out there with all the aspiring, health junkies.

Pros: relaxed ambiance, green growth theme, wholesome food

Cons: more electric plugs for computers

Worth Giving a Try (Again) - Edit

I have frequented A Moveable Feast since the mid-80's and have watched it morph. When they moved to Echo Lane it seemed to change and I wasn't compelled to drive out to see them. I've gone a couple of times in the last 10 years. Today I went and was pleasantly surprised with a renewed menu and the return of the "Happy Burger" which was a staple any years ago. Actually, I used to go once a week to get their Happy Burgers when they were in the Montrose area. The food was fresh and delicious. I also had a juice which was equally good. Yes, this restaurant serves meat too but is heavy on vegetarian and vegan dishes. I would definitely recommend it.

Pros: Fresh, New menu items, Lots of veg options

Cons: Serves meat

Yum! - Edit

Great location for us suburbanites and my daughter loves the vegan quesadillas. Lost of options because they will use vegan cheese on anything if you ask. Unfortunately the place has been under new management since my original review. I've been avoiding it lately as the staff is much less friendly and less accommodating. Good place to meet your non-vegan friends for meals because they have options too.

I absolutely love this place! - Edit

This is my go-to place for well prepared, healthy fare. The southwest caesar salad is awesome, and the enchiladas are better than any Mexican joint around. You don't have that thirsty feeling all night after eating their enchiladas. There is a flourless chocolate cake that's to die for! The gluten free carrot muffins are one of my favorites.

There's a health food store attached to the restaurant that has lots of items you won't find other places. The atmosphere is totally laid back. Even found a gluten free beer there. Friendly staff, free wi-fi and there's a book/magazine table for sharing. Highly recommend.

cool name, but not at all vegetarian - Edit

I tried very hard to find this place, when i did i wqas sorry i did, its like a health food store chock full of expired products with a restaraunt that by no means should even be identified as a vegetarian one. Unless the term vegetarian is now so loose as it allows for the eating of buffalo, yes, i said buffalo.I didn't eat there for fear of beef stock or chicken fat in any type of sauce, or rennet in the cheese. Not wanting to break my no red meat streak that i like to uphold i wouldn't step foot in there again.

Pros: cool name

Cons: buffalo!, beef?!?

The business changed hands in 2013 and has since made vast improvements. We do cater to both vegetarians and carnivores.

pretty good! - Edit

-the vegetarian chilli is awesome but is probably not very healthy. it tastes quite rich..like it reminds me of those thick buttery soups from la madeleine.
-i have tried the lasagna and it tastes like it is made with tofu shirataki or something? i don't know-they were kind of watery and bland. -desserts are sooo yummy, especially the lemon squares!!
-i don't think the majority of the items on the menu are healthy/low fat so i only eat there once in awhile.
-the greek salad dressing is good!
-i used to eat here like once a week when i wasn't too into my now "healthy low fat mostly greens 95% vegan diet" and whenever i would get takeout they would always forget to put things in and i guess it's my fault too since i didn't make sure, but almost everytime if i didn't remind them something would be missing!
-most meals are around $10-15 if you get a dessert

Pros: less than 10 mins away, good veg chilli, fairly big portions

Cons: not that healthy, forgetful staff

One of my favs - Edit

It's a health food store?
It's a restaurant that meat eaters, health freaks, and vegans can all enjoy?
In Houston, no less?
I love the place - walk in, go to the left, stock up on healthy, vegetarian, vegan, macrobiotic, and/or organic fare. They sell food, herbs, drinks, snacks, health & beauty products & supplements in a compact but easy to navigate shop.
Go to the right, and hit the restaurant. The offerings vary from vegan, to organic, locally grown meat meals.
As a vegetarian, I am partial to the seasonal gazpacho soup, the vegetarian lasagna (can also be made vegan with a simple request) and the hummingbird food cake.
I have brought many a meat eater/non-believer to eat here and have yet to have any one leave hungry or dissatisfied.
It feels homey - like you're hanging out in your quirky aunt's farmhouse.
The atmosphere is relaxed, and prices are reasonable for the area. (Memorial HS is within walking distance.)
One of my favorite go-to restaurants the food never fails to please. I've been eating there often since 2001 and have never had a bad experience.

Pros: food/portions, selection, shop on premises
