Heidi has created a welcoming and comfortable spot for a cup of tea and a tasty vegan meal and sweet treat. Her, Joel and their entire staff make you feel welcome everytime you come in. It is fun to hear her explaining the different teas to her customers. They also host community compassionate living events and special event evening meals. The Lasanga dinner was amazing. Thanks for being a bright spot and bringing vegan food awareness and availability to North Mankato.

Pros: Yummy Food, Tasty variety of teas, Friendly Atmosphere

Yummy sandwich

I had a "beef" sandwich, plus cheese and almost all the veggies, on sourdough bread. Sandwich was really good. There's also a large selection of baked goods to choose from. And tea of course.

Best plant based gem in Kato!

This is a local gem. It always has something delicious on the menu (all vegan!) and you can try a scrumptious new tea every time. Eclectic and casual. ❤️

Not only do they have an amazing tea selection but they have a large vegan selection of soups, sandwiches, and salads.
They also have a grab-and-go section with vegan options as well as products from The Herbivorous Butcher.
They host special vegan dinner nights on the weekends as well.

Pros: Mostly vegan, if not all, great tea selection, knowledgable and caring staff

Wonderful Tea and Light Lunch/Vegan options from Local Sources

This is a wonderful tea shop. It's a quaint little spot that has a wide variety of teas. They often have samplings where you pay $3 and it's all you can drink. Great way to try new tea!
They also have some nice, light lunch options that are vegan. Soups, sandwiches, hummus and the like. I know that you can get Herbivorous Butcher products there (cheese and meat).
Wonderful spot and a must visit!
