Delicious Baked Goods and Bagel Sandwiches

This was such a great stop on a road trip! We got a bunch of baked goods and some yummy bagel sandwiches. Some highlights were their homemade brown sugar pop tart and the quiche! The staff was also super friendly!

A great spot

Quiet, well adorned restaurant that has an extensive breakfast leaning menu. Really genuinely sweet staff that were encouraging and helpful. There are a selection of dry food, a cold case and a freezer case. There are also various non food items like stickers, jewelry, cards. Really a pleasant spot. The coffee was delicious. The pop tart was great. The bagel with tofu scramble, sausage, bacon, and cheese was delightful. Support this lovely vegan small business!

a vegan community gem

Fresh and delicious vegan takes on classic deli and cafe toasts, wraps, sandwiches, breakfast items, and sweets. White glove clean interior. There is also a small gift and food shop in the back. Be sure to follow their social media pages, because this community-minded cafe hosts local product makers in pop-ups nearly every weekend and has monthly and holiday specials. They do catering too. LGBTQIA+ friendly.

They have gluten free options!

At first, I wasn’t sure I could eat anything, as they specialize in wraps, bagels and sandwiches and I have to eat gluten free. But … they have gluten free bagels and bread! So I could get more than half the menu. The bacon and sausage are gluten free, too. I got the bacon sausage egg cheese bagel. The tofu eggs were delicious as was the cheese.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Lots of gluten free options, Fast

Very friendly service with decent food

The first thing I noticed here is how friendly the workers were. I’m not the most social person, but they started polite conversation and made me feel very welcomed.

They heated up a breakfast sandwich for me when I arrived to pick up my order. I indulged my sweet tooth and took a look at their desserts as well.

I had the Bacun, Sausage, Eggz & Cheese Breakfast Bagel Sandwich. I really liked all of the toppings, but I did have some feedback about the bagel. It was very hard, not burnt, but too tough to chew. I’m not sure if it was because it was nuked too long or if it was stale, but I had to toss most of it. My personal preference is for a lightly toasted breakfast bagel, crisp on the outside and chewy inside.

I grabbed a cookie butter “pop tart” for the road. It was very good and a nice snack for the next leg of my road trip.

Overall, I liked this place and the service. I just wanted to share feedback about the hard bagel and maybe that was just a fluke. I would come here again!

Pros: Many vegan options, plenty of packaged desserts, very friendly service

Great food and service

We have picked up sandwiches many times from here. Always good and loved by the non vegans, too. They were out of one of our requests so I put in the ‘notes’ column that if they had the Greek to please put it in our order and they did! Great attention to detail and wonderful service. Non vegans could not get over how good the food tasted.

Pros: Delicious sandwiches , Large portions , Extensive retail items

Cons: Wish they were open for dinne

Tastey and good vibes

Really nice cafe with lots of vegan sandwiches and baked goods. Loved that it was right off the highway since we’re traveling. The market in there was really cute, serving vegan groceries and home goods. Staff was very friendly, they asked us to pin on their map where we were from! Wish the eggs where in patty form for the breakfast sandwiches, it was a little messy to eat, other than that it was super yummy. A little expensive for the value but sure did love the convenience.

Pros: Close to the highway, Good selection, Good vibes

Cons: Expensive, Hash brown was old & cold

A Neighborhood Gem

LOVE!!! Great to have so many daily options. Their monthly, special homemade meals are beyond! Their french dip was the best sandwich I've ever had. Mac n cheese is excellent. If you're lucky you'll go on a day when donuts are available. Curbside only at this time but always fast and convenient to pick up groceries with my lunch.

Very tasty food. I especially love the breakfast burrito. I have a coworker who is addicted to their BLT. I like that they host events with other vendors (at least during times when the governor isn't ruining the economy with his overreaction to the novel coronavirus) because it offers a chance to try even more tasty food and possibly meet another friend who was drawn to the event. The venue is spacious and very comfortable. It's not a coffee shop, but the relaxed seating arrangement sort of has that vibe.

In the cons I mention too much salt. I tend to eat low salt for heart health so immediately notice salty food. If you're a typical high salt American then you probably won't notice.

Pros: Tasty, Rotating menu, Events hosting other vendors

Cons: Would like less salt

cool place, good food

although it can get a bit pricey for small portions, it is a cafe so it was kinda what i expected. they have a bakery section that has really good, versatile desserts. they have a lot of food options for a cafe, but they aren’t super flavorful. there is a mini store in the back with food, accessories, and zero waste essentials among other things.

Pros: wide selection, good desserts, spacious

Cons: a bit pricey, small portions

Great place for brunch!

My husband and I are really happy to have found this lovely cafe. We each ordered the breakfast sandwiches, a cinnamon roll, and some baklava(to go). The sandwiches and cinnamon roll were delicious! They also have a small food shop in the back of the cafe with lots of yummy vegan goods. Can’t wait to go back.

Pros: Everything is vegan! , Affordable

Wish there was one on every corner

Great breakfast/lunch spot with delicious food and baked goods plus a perfect little vegan market. If it was a little closer, I’d be there daily!
