5-Star Flavorful Gem

The owner was immediately welcoming and attentive to our vegan interests. My wife described our dining experience as if we were invited into someone’s home. Beyond the utmost hospitality, we found the black quinoa salad, tomato-avocado-onion salad, and la potena wrap to be full of flavor and clean, colorful plant-based ingredients. Seriously some of the best food I’ve ever eaten, in a convenient location and charming decor, I’d eat here all the time if I lived here.

Pros: Plenty of healthy, colorful vegan options

Highly recommend

The owner is very friendly, and knows what to do with the menu items to fit a vegan or vegetarian diet. None of the menu items are vegan to begin with, but many can be adapted to not have any animal products. The service was fast, and the food was absolutely delicious, with the best wrap i’ve ever had.
