Serves meat, vegan options available. Est. since the 1970s, this restaurant specializes in house-made tempeh in sandwiches and burgers. It's also a music venue with inside and outside stages. An expansive back patio overlooked by a treehouse for the children to play in and skirted by a river-esque water feature. Open Mon-Fri 7:00am-10:00pm, Sat-Sun 8:00am-10:00pm.

Blah - Edit

We go to Avo's regularly for live music, but I now make it a point to eat somewhere else before we go. There are a few vegan options, but they are not great. The tempeh sandwich they are somewhat known for is incredibly dry and bland. This place has a lot of potential, but they need a new chef!

Pros: Great live music, Funky 70s vibe

Cons: Mediocre food

Vegan Options - Edit

Service isn't always great, but the food always is. I live a good 45 minutes by highway from here and sometimes I consider driving to Fort Collins solely for the restaurant.

Vintage Fort Collins Hippie Food! Awesome environment. Have the ability to accommodate most diet requirements. Friendly Staff. Could use some good cleaning inside.

Pros: Yummy, Reasonably priced, Patio Area

Cons: Indoors needs dusted

They don't know what they're doing. - Edit

Avogadro's Number has been long-considered a good place for vegetarians/vegans to eat. They have made their own tempeh for decades, and now have a tofu company that operates out of their kitchen, but the food is absolutely terrible. They do things like put lettuce or avocado on hot sandwiches. They have Daiya cheese for their pizza, but have no idea how to use it, and just absolutely drench the pizza in it. The ingredients are low-quality--the tomatoes are always mushy, and the avocado is usually black. The bread is spongy and bland. You never get the same thing--each time your order something, it comes out different. I am guessing they don't have anyone in charge of the kitchen. Or it is just an amateur. It has really gone downhill over the past four or five years. I suggest drinking about four beers before you dine, so you can eat your food.

Pros: great atmosphere, music venue, amazing patio

Cons: low-quality, poor value, unimaginative and bland

Horrible - Edit

I was desperate for some vegan food options in the early morning and Tasty Harmony's wasn't available. So I came here in a rush. Ordered cheesy omelet for my brother and the Vegan special for me(Tofu, spinach, potato, onions scrambled together). Apparently my dish came with tortillas but they weren't edible. Both of us didn't have any flavor it was straight up bland. Seriously like the food was bleached and then soaked and thrown into a to go box. I wish I had a least a little salt or pepper, I was so hungry. I ate my mine because I was starving but my brother took a bite and threw his away. I'm sad I lost money to this food.

Pros: Open in the morning, Creative wall art, Pet wasp in the window

Cons: Horrible Food, Needs flavor, like seasoning, Needs to hire a cook

FoCo staple, but... - Edit

A long-time go-to for locals of the veggie persuasion... but sad to see the prices steadily climb over the years and portions steadily slide down a long long slope. I don't know what happened, but, to me, it is *just* enough of a value on "2 for 1" days to warrant eating there—but I'd never dine there outside of those days. Nice atmosphere though, and performances. Le sigh.

Pros: House made tempeh, Local tofu, Atmosphere is alright

Cons: No longer a great value
