Ok spot if with non-veg

This restaurant has a lot of vegetarian tapas but only some are vegan (cucumber salad, black bean salad, hummus, tabbouleh). The fried avocado, fried artichoke, and black bean cakes are not.

I had the black bean salad and tabbouleh. Black bean salad was really good, the tabbouleh was good too but a little too much lemon in my opinion.

They had several vegetarian options that could easily be veganized, as well as a couple vegan options. The service, ambience, and adult beverages were fantastic!

Pros: Excellent service , Cool vibe in restaurant, Good food

Such a cute restaurant

Such a cute hole in the wall restaurant. Great outdoor patio by a small walking trail path/creek. Unfortunate that it doesn’t have a designated vegan menu. And almost most vegetarian (from their vegetarian menu) dishes had cheese.

Pros: Some vegan options, So cute, Adorable restaurant

Cons: Small amount of vegan options, cheese in most, Higher priced, Meat & dairy served

5 star for outside atmosphere, 1 or 2 stars for vegan options (2022) Things have changed.

I used to love this place for a roasted veggie plate and sauteed mushrooms that I hope were vegan. The staff isn't educated on what is so they will have to go check. Don't trust the menu and call ahead if you are attending. They do have a hummus app but that will leave you hungry. This is the consensus of many vegans in Prescott. Precovid they used to have music which was really nice outside but not sure when they will come back. The place is always packed at dinner so if you need to attend with meat eaters, make a reservation. I'd give this place a star and promote it in our vegan groups if they would dedicate a hearty meal and appetizer with the (V) symbol on the menu. There is a Thai place downtown and take out that that is wonderful. There is also Maya Rest which is more affordable but has vegan options on the menu. Farm Provisions is pricey and some dishes will leave you hungry and I'm petite. Feel free to ask our veg group before you arrive or read these reviews.

Amazing atmosphere!

I had the hummus and olive tapenade with chips because their pittas contain eggs. That would be my only complaint is to maybe change your pita vendor to a vegan one because from the looks of them they were nothing special and my man said they were just normal. The patio is amazing and the service top notch!

Pros: Atmosphere , Healthy great tasting food

Cons: Could have a few more vegan options

Not Many Vegan Choices

I am gluten free. I had their black bean salad which was good with corn chips at the base. Do no go there if your a Gluten Free Vegan few few choices. Very noisy Make a reservation before you go especially on a Friday or Saturday night.

Delicious food

Went with a group, and I was the only vegan. Lots of options for everybody. We were trying to walk in but luckily a group was a no-show for their reservation. I would recommend making a reservation though! We only ordered various tapas, no entrees, but there is a vegan entree that I am definitely looking forward to trying when I come back again!
Edit: I went back for the vegan entree and it was to die for!
