Great food, staffing issues

There was a great selection of food on their all-vegan menu. It's great to see this happening in Winona! All of the food I tried was great, especially the vegan breakfast sandwich. 😋

One thing to note is that there seems to be some staffing issues here. They are supposed to open at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays. We were there at 10:05, and there were other customers there, too. The other customers said they are regularly late to open on Sundays, and they ended up leaving after waiting about 10 more minutes. We stuck around, and it opened around 10:30. We were the only customers there with our group of 4, but they struggled to prepare our order. It took us an hour to get three breakfast sandwiches and one grilled cheese to-go. The workers were really trying their best, but maybe they need more staff or someone more experienced there with the younger staff members. I hope these issues get resolved because I really want to see this place survive in Winona!

Fantastic tea and vegan treats

What a treat to have this in Winona now! Delicious vegan sandwiches and baked goods and great tea. Small menu but everything is delicious. I also loved the little gift shop inside. Great place for picking up little gifts for people. I’ll be back whenever I’m in town.

Great Place for a Lighter Bite to Eat

Great little place with cool vibes. The interior has interesting old architecture decorated with modern industrial touches. It's a peaceful place to stop in for a snack or have some lunch. They are currently working on a space to seat more people and to have live music as well. They have delicious plant-based food available featuring some products from the Herbivorous Butcher in the Twin Cities. All the food is made vegan. Sandwiches, Quesadillas, Chia Pudding, dessert bars, & cookies are usually on the menu which changes from week to week. There are also packaged vegan snacks to go. The wait for food from the kitchen is usually around 10 minutes, but can take longer depending on how busy they are. The few times I have gone there, there was only one or two employees working at a time. I love the different varieties of tea to try. They also have teas of the day you can sample for free before committing to a choice. You can get your tea hot or cold in a to-go cup or you can sit and sip in a classic ceramic tea cup. If you order a pot, you get to pick out which teapot you want your tea brewed in and they leave it with you at the table. If you are vegetarian and not vegan, there are individual honey sticks you can sweeten your tea with. You can also just drop in to shop for tea to brew at home. The front is filled with loose leaf teas to purchase as well as tea accessories, tea pots, ceramic mugs, and little gifts for tea lovers.
