Quick and dependable

This isn’t somewhere I usually go for fun—but if I’m super hungry and nearby, I can always pop in for a quick meal either to stay or to go. It’s just an easy fast place that *has vegetables*. Unlike most other fast places around here (or in general).

I like to get the Farmer’s Sandwich, hold the cheese, either on a multigrain roll or as a wrap. Sometimes I tweak the veggies or ask to add tofu. (They have two kinds, plain and spicy) Bowls are also good and generously proportioned. A big plus is that they’ll customize whatever you want. Partially because it’s made to order, but also it’s sort of their main idea, create what you like. No one bats an eye when you make substitutions.

The place is a crowd-pleaser for a quick casual lunch out with others, vegan or not. There’s a pleasant spacious and airy seating area. Great for groups and strollers. They have good smoothies and açaí bowls, too. Also, oatmeal for breakfast. And they serve some of their own fountain drinks, including a delicious, If exceptionally sweet, strawberry lemonade.

There are some downsides that keep this from being a go-to for me. Nothing’s organic, all disposable bowls and packaging, even if you eat in. They used to separate out compost from trash, but that seems to have stopped. Meat is sort of prominently on display, which can be a turn off.

But, I can get a big bowl of veggies & grains there. In some locations without many vegan options, a restaurant like Create could easily be the best thing going. Even in this neighborhood, with lots of more expensive or less casual vegan options, I’m very glad we have Create.

The staff is friendly and very helpful. It’s also open pretty late, which is awesome!

3.5 stars, rounded up to 4... bonus points for having vegan desserts

Pros: Affordable, fast, customizable, Open later than comparable spots, Wide variety of options

Cons: Food is not all that exciting after a while, No more composting or reusables to eat-in, Not organic, Meat on display

A place to go when I don't want to think about what to eat

I have had all four vegan bowls, three different smoothies, and make-your-own salad once at this place. The food is mostly bland, and even though the portion size is huge, the bowls are filled with the base carb mostly (brown rice or quinoa) with small amount of other ingredients. Also there are some pre-packaged vegan sweets - brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and pumpkin loaf in the front.

Pros: vegan options - smoothies, salad, bowls, desserts, friendly staff

Cons: Bland food

Decent lunch spot

They have 4 vegan bowls as well as make your own bowl and salad options. The food is dependable but not mind-blowing - good for a quick lunch.

Fresh greens, grains, and lots of variety!

What a great find! Stopped in for a late lunch and ordered a hot bowl, and not only was it delicious, but the portion size was enough to fill me up and still save some for later! The place was bright and clean and the service was friendly and quick!

Pros: Did I mention fresh produce?, Wide variety with lots of healthy choices!

Cons: There's not one of these on every corner!
