First Review by The Veggie Cook

Delicious Food in a Small Cafe Setting - Edit

I've been here for both dinner and breakfast, and both times the food was incredible! While the breakfast menu is fairly small, I had the best breakfast burrito I've ever had in my life. It is a very small cafe, but so far I haven't had to wait for a table.

Pros: Excellent food, Outdoor seating; great for people-watching

Cons: Indoors can get loud

disappointedly poor food - Edit

We orders 4 dishes and 2 smoothes + sparkling water. Later was faded and fizz was gone, smoothes were bitter as hell (seems like no sugar was added and fruit was not ripe, so it was not sweet at all. When it came to the food we left everything almost uneaten, we tried as we could but we couldn't eat it ... It Was super over salted , very greasy and fatty( heavy food). We had a desert, the cake was so horrible it was quite surprising ( it was oily and had acquired taste).

Pros: it's vegan

Cons: decor needs updating ( not a cozy place), too salted and too oily food

Great food! Service... - Edit

Made the hour drive to check this place out on my birthday last week. My family have been craving an old fashioned breakfast since going vegan a few months ago so I did some research and found this spot.

So first thing is, if you're not familiar with LA, parking is always a hassle. We found a spot around the corner and didn't realize that it was residential parking only and got a $62 ticket. Not sure where you are supposed to park if all the spots in front of Floré are taken but just make sure you check all signs before choosing a spot.

Here is where the service/friendliness part comes into question. We got there a few minutes before opening. We walked up and a gentleman was sitting on a chair next to the door, reading a paper. As we walked up, I told my family, "I don't think they're open yet" the gentlman looked up and said, "we don't open until 10" but he did it pretty rudely, got up and went into the restaurant. I said, oooookay and waited until someone came out to seat us. Now our female server (didn't get her name) was great! Extremely friendly. Very fast and accommodating.

We placed our orders and the food come out and it looked goooood! I got the chik'n and waffles and my wife and son got waffles with bananas and berries with potatoes on the side. We all LOVED the meal and it was exactly what we were looking for to fill that classic breakfast craving!

I am giving Floré 5 stars despite the initial contact. I seem to notice that because my family and I don't look like the average vegan (like I said we are new to this lifestyle and are still overweight from our years of omnivorous eating) we get approached by some people at these establishments very rudely or shortly. In others, the folks are excited to hear about our change and are very encouraging and helpful with recommendations, etc. I had a similar incident at Equelecua Cuban Cafe in Inglewood and will post that experience as well. I won't fault the restaurant for the brief rudeness since our server was great and so was the food.

Pros: Great vegan breakfast

Cons: Parking

AMAZING!! - Edit

The food is definitely 10/10! I ordered the French toast which was fabulous and all you could ask for. My mom ordered the BLT was was just as great and non vegan approved! we enjoyed the coziness and deliciousness! 100% sure we're coming back ASAP!

Pros: FoOOd, staff ((:

Cons: A little crammed when busy

A must! - Edit

Every time I'm in the LA area Flore is a must for place to visit for breakfast. I do usually only get the tofu Benedict, which is my guaranteed to satisfy order. I did order the biscuits and gravy plate once and unfortunately the flavors were all off. However, that did not for a second persuade me to not continue going to Flore.

Delish - Edit

I have to admit that this is a good change of scene, change of taste restaurant. I'm tired of the same Asian type vegan food from a lot of restaurants. This restaurant offers a diverse fast food/comfort (bad for your health and waist line) delicious Vegan food. I had the popular "chicken" and waffles. OMG, they are just divine! At first, you think that having just one waffle is not filling enough but you will be surprised. The waffle is pretty big and the piece of "chicken" is also big and chunky. They also give you tater tots with gravy to accompany your dish. My friend had the country breakfast and her meal was epic too. She had two pretty decent looking pancakes, a piece of "sausage" a biscuit with gravy and some mash potatoes (I believe). I loved my meal so much that I decided to have a muffin. I had the strawberry one. It looks very elegant with a whole strawberry on top. However, it had an unsettling fishy after taste that was completely confusing. My brother, who is a wanna be vegetarian, protested of the "fishy" taste and he should know because he just transitioned a few weeks ago. I don't know where that after taste comes from but I have to agree with my brother that it was unsettling.
Despite the cupcakes, I would definitely go back and enjoyed their varied, good tasting menu.

Pros: Delicious, Different

Cons: Expensive, fishy after taste

Pretty darn good. - Edit

Been here three times now and always good. The desserts are tastier than the meals, though. Their lunch and dinner food is still tasty though. I dont have any real complaints. Wait staff is friendly. Parking can be a little tricky- because it is main drag (Sunset Ave) in Echo Park. Recommend this place. Very good.

Pros: Organic , Desserts are tasty! , All vegan!

Cons: Parking

Amazing vegan breakfasts!!! - Edit

Had amazing 'chicken' and waffles and pancakes for breakfast. Our only regret is that we were too full to try any of their cakes!! Their smoothies and lattes are also delicious.

You need to go to Flore if you are in LA- it is AMAZING!

Pros: Delicious food, Lovely staff, Large portions

So good!! - Edit

I've only ordered carry out but the service is always friendly and fast. The tempeh reuben with potato salad is pretty much the best sandwich ever! Like "bury one with me when I die" good! Order it!!

Pros: Excellent Food, Friendly Fast Service

Delicious! - Edit

I was visiting LA and had read Flore had great food. They have an AMAZING dessert selection, and our entrees were delicious. Our server suggested a few items like the Taco Salad and all were awesome. I ate with a non-veg friend and he even loved the food... and he's hard to please.

Pros: Great entrees, Great dessert selection

Cons: Pretty small, possibly wait for table

Looking forward to going back - Edit

Following a recommendation of a friend of mine, I decided to try out this restaurant, but had a hard time finding it. It's in one of my favorite parts of Los Angeles, Silver Lake, but the color theme of the businesses in Silver Lake and Sunset Junction is collectively a chocolate brown which makes everything blend together. I actually couldn't the restaurant in my car. I had to park and then go looking for the address on foot. When I arrived I realized why I had missed it. Not only did they have a chocolate brown awning, but it was faded and it's lettering is small. I mention this because I'd hate for you to become frustrated and give up looking for this treasure of a restaurant.

There was a line when I got to the door. A line at a vegetarian restaurant is always a good sign that the food is going to be that good that people are willing to wait for it. As you wait, you'll notice a large deli case that's almost seems suspiciously turned away from you, mason jar lights, milk bottles of water at each table to serve yourself with, eight differing style paintings (some landscape, some portrait, but all seem to come from or be inspired by the turn of the century) , and in between the paintings are mirrors of differing sizes and styles. True to hipster form, you're not sure if the decorations are playfully ironic, happenstance, or sarcastic.

Now you're seated and while you wait for your food, you realize that the booths are an earthy brown leather and you can't help but think, "is this real leather at a vegan eatery?" But then you hear the cool 80's music and you fight the urge to sing along.

Now onto the food which is all deli style. I get the meatloaf sandwich on a soft focascia bread. My first vegan focascia and it was nice and soft with a fresh baked taste). The obedient veggies let the barbeque sauced meatloaf misbehave. The 'meat' of the meatloaf didn't have much seasoning in and of itself, but tangy sweet barbeque sauce was a welcome balance to it. I realized that I haven't eaten anything with barbeque sauce on anything for years and how you miss it. The salad was a nice blend of familiar goodness and new proportions of those salad items.

Now the grand finale, the best chocolate peanut butter cupcake I have ever had! Moist chocolate cake, creamy peanut butter frosting and a bittersweet chocolate syrup drizzled over it. Amazing!

Veg out,

Veggie Army

On the daily - Edit

After getting food here together for the second time in one week, my bf admitted to me that it was actually his third time that week. And he's not even a vegan- I'm the one who's supposed to be obsessed with Flore! We always try to order something different every time and split what we get with each other. We have a couple favorites we come back to, but it's easy to experimentally order food here because every item is worthy of 4 or 5 stars. Nothing we've ordered yet has been a bust.

Here are some of our favorite items: the club, Reuben, potato salad, southwest quesadilla, and the insanely good coconut kale smoothie! Some seriously great food. And we've had top notch service too. Once we made a ridiculous bet about something random and got our waitress in on it. She sided with me (of course!) and told us we inspired a Facebook post about our conversation. Ha!

Basically, I've been eating at Flore a lot lately and have yet to feel the slightest bit disappointed. I highly recommend trying all of the things here.

Pros: All food items FTW, Smoothies FTW, Hours/Service/Prices FTW

Diverse menu, organic ingredients, great desserts - Edit

Flore is great little casual café with a diverse menu featuring creative homestyle eats made with organic ingredients.

It's a place that dares to try new things, with varying results. From what we sampled, their offerings range from simple-but-good to uncommonly great. Some dishes are more creative and/or flavorful than others, so if you're a first-timer here wondering what to order, i'd suggest asking your server or some of the seasoned customers for recommendations.

The top raves go to their desserts. The cacao peanut butter "cheesecake" is heavenly.

We very much appreciate the mix of health and comfort options, and we applaud their commitment to using organic produce — and even for those two things alone we'd keep coming back. But then there's awesome dessert, too...


Pros: organic, diverse menu, desserts

Great Breakfast - Edit

Second time there for breakfast and we brought out of town visitors again! This time we came early, avoiding a long wait. Everything was good - I had the fritata, others enjoyed burritos. Coffee wasn't that great and some of the water cups were dirty but quickly replaced. Ice tea was an amazing deal.

Pros: Good food

Enjoyed the Sunday brunch - Edit

We went for Sunday brunch and while we started out as the only people there, it filled up pretty quickly. The waitress was friendly and didn't mind when we asked for a latte instead of the coffee she'd already brought, because we didn't realize it was on the menu. I had biscuits and vegan "sausage" gravy, and my husband had whole wheat banana waffles. The biscuits and gravy were pretty amazing. It was a lot and I could only finish half. The whole wheat waffle was pretty good too. We also enjoyed the latte and a chocolate cupcake. I wish we could have tried more of the desserts, but we were stuffed. They looked amazing. They also had some lunch items that we'll have to come back for someday.

Cafe Flore is addictive - LOVE this place! - Edit

This is gourmet vegan food - WOW! We have never been disappointed at Cafe Flore. The Tofu Benediction is to die for! Everything we have tried at this restaurant has been amazing. I highly recommend Cafe Flore - super delicious vegan food at fair prices.

Hipsterlicious! - Edit

Flore is the "it" vegan hipster restaurant in the hipster capital of LA (a.k.a. Silver Lake).

My husband and I ventured out for a Sunday lunch and found this place hopping! There was a line (which always makes me so happy when vegan restaurants are this popular) and we put down our names. We went for a 15 minute walk, came back and got a seat inside in one of the booths.

The food was delicious and the food that passed us on our way to other tables looked equally delicious. I'm anxious to get back and try more things on their menu.

The prices were reasonable, I think we spent about $30 for the two of us for lunch. The service was also good, the hostess did a good job getting people to their seats as quickly as she could, tables were bused fast, cooks were firing food out, and the servers were on their A-game.

Parking is street parking, but we didn't have too much of a difficult time finding parking up in the neighborhood blocks behind the restaurant, even on a Sunday (but we don't mind walking a block or two for free parking).

The only thing I wish that was a little bit better was the cleanliness. The bathroom is small and a little sad looking. The floors could have used a good moping in general, but they were packed and it is a hipster joint after all...

Pros: Delicious food, Speedy service, Hipster experience

Cons: Could use a mop

:) - Edit

This place is definitely worth trying!! Vegan style diner food, but classy and creative. You could eat healthy here but it's more of a place for a vegan pig-out feast, which is much needed! The prices are amazing given the quality, so I usually cannot resist trying out one of the very reasonably priced smoothies or desserts! The chocolate cupcakes are amazing! I feel like I'm putting on the pounds after a meal here but isn't that amazing for a vegan restaurant? I love the seitan tacos! The waiters are all SL hipster clones in beanies but not overtly rude, but neither warm.
Giving it 5 stars because it is great value and sits atop the pile of my best LA vegan experiences.

Pros: Great Prices!, Great Selection, Creative, Amazing Cakes

Cons: Sullen Hipster Waiters (but it's SL!)

Hit the Spot - Edit

I ordered brunch from Flore, plus a few other things for the road.

I wanted to try a few things so the Country Breakfast was perfect for me. It included:
Pancakes - not your typical pancakes. They reminded me a bran muffin made into a pancake. It was good, just wasn't what I was expecting.

vegan sausage patty - ok

Biscuit & gravy - Very good. 1 large biscuit with plenty of gravy. Very Southern-like, and very tasty.

country potatoes - very good! Made just like I grew eating them, with onions and green peppers + spices. Yum!

1 added a side of tempeh bacon - Very good, smoky flavor. Extra yum!

(So much food that I ate off of this for 2 days. All for under $11!)

I ordered a scoop of their tempeh no-tuna salad. This is one of the best tasting vegan tuna creations I've ever had. It is great as a sandwich or with crackers. Wish I'd gotten 2 scoops!

Ginger molasses cookie - Delicious!

Lemon bar - Delicious!

Lemon Berry cake - Good!

They had a case full of beautifully displayed desserts; I wish I had enough room to transport them all.

The place is quite small, but there wasn't a crowd when I was there (@ 10:30a-11am on a Sunday morning). Some outside seating as well.

The workers were friendly and helpful when I asked for suggestions on what desserts I should try.

I'll definitely return when I'm back in town.

Pros: 100% vegan, yummy brunch and desserts, reasonably priced

Cons: parking

To Be Continued ... - Edit

After many visits to LA, I finally found my favorite All-Vegan organic restaurant. I'll be dining at Flore during future visits. Very reasonable prices for very delicious food.

Pros: All Vegan, Wonderful Staff, All Vegan

Cons: Only one, 1,300 miles away

Hit or miss - Edit

I ordered tacos and my friend a comfort food bowl, I believe it was called and we both got the homemade ginger ale which was a little strong but outstanding. The food on the other hand was pretty hit or miss. The comfort food bowl was quite good, especially the quinoa and the veggie. The tacos weren't all that good though. Who serves bland plain brown rice with tacos?! And there was no salsa but a wing sauce which has way to much vinegar for that kind of meal. The coconut macaroon I got to go was also just average. My favorite part about this place is the location for one and the service. Our waiter was great!

Pros: home made ginger ale, prices, service

Cons: meal composition was not a fit, cookie very average for the price

Not too bad - Edit

We had brunch there today. Buckwheat pancakes with tempeh bacon and Cranberry French toast with potatoes. Both dishes were good not outrageous. French toast was better and had a beautiful presentation with strawberry and powdered sugar. I'd go again but not make a special trip to go there. I'd like to try their lunch food but wanted to try breakfast because there are so few vegan breakfast around.

Pros: good value, friendly staff, all vegan

Great Place, Great Food! - Edit

Went here for the first time with a friend. Cute little place in a great neighborhood. Outdoor seating and inside. I had the avacado and cheese sandwich on rye bread with potato salad. It was fantastic!! The cheese was cashew-based and the sandwich is really large and filling with avacado and sprouts. Would totally recommend going here! Definitely going back :)

Pros: awesome neighborhood, great food, cute place

Great Food! - Edit

I came here for lunch on the weekend and it was packed! I had to wait 45 minutes to be seated, which to me shows that its a popular restaurant. The restaurant itself isn't anything special. However, the food is delicious! I also got some cupcakes which were equally good. On weekend mornings they serve brunch which would be worthwhile to try out. I would definitely come back to Flore and bring my non-vegan friends along!

Flore - Edit

I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my Flore Cafe review.

It's a very small space, kinda grungy with poor ventilation. On the other hand, the food menu is varied and taste is pretty good. Lots of American food stuff made all vegan: tofu scramble, tempeh reuben, pancakes, sandwiches, salads, and more.

Popular with the local crowds. All vegan.

So-so - Edit

I ordered the burrito as the waiter advised, I wasn't too impressed with the flavor combinations although everything was super fresh. The desserts are really great. The service wasn't up to par. The waiter was not cleanly (his hair was all over the place (not tied back), which is a health hazard) and even though there were lots of people behind the display cases, he was the only one helping anyone out. The waiter seemed over stressed and too busy and the food took too long to be able to justify it not being very good.

Pros: Fresh food, Great desserts

Cons: Not cleanly, Service slow

Tempeh tu-no melt - Edit

i use to love tuna melts when i was non veg which was over 12 years ago
and alway missed it once i stopped eating animals. i ordered the tempeh tu-no melt at flore and it was great! with avocado. the cashew cheese totally rocks!

Pros: good food, big menu, deli

Cons: hipsters, waiters are kinda rude, hard to find inside seating

Another Great Vegan Cafe - Edit

I really enjoyed my trip to Flore the last time I was in the L.A. area. I got the Reuben with potato salad. The sandwich wasn't quite the same flavors as a more typical reuben, but just as delicious. The potato salad wasn't heavy on the vegenaise, like most vegan potato salad, but was just as delicious. I felt like this place put a twist on something typical, and it came out fresh and fantastic. The day I went was absolutely packed, so I was worried we might be waiting a very long time for our food to come. But to my surprise it came out in a very timely manner. So many great items to try. Can't wait to head over there again.

Pros: Fresh tasty food, Friendly Server, Free Parking in nearby neighborhood

I like Flore! Kinda divey, but good food! I had the veggie sandwich and it was delicious... the only thing I wasn't too impressed with were the desserts. But the food is good enough to go back : )

My favorite thing about LA - Edit

I love this place! I've only made it there for brunch so far, but would love to try the rest of the menu. The food is very fresh and healthy, no processed imitation meats (I'll admit to a slight weakness to those, but the food here will make you not want them at all). Try the tomato basil "omelet" and the tofu benediction-- soooo good. The servings are pretty good size, you will most likely be able to take home decent leftovers. Best for small parties, the seating is limited.

Pros: yummy!, healthy food, large portions

Cons: can be crowded

By submitting this post you agree to HappyCow Terms

Boring menu - Edit

I got the seitan mushroom burger and it was alright. The thousand island was really good, I got it with salad, not too exciting. I'm not a big fan of tempeh, so that may be why I wasn't impressed

Organic menu, I tried a cupcake, the frosting got really oily pretty quick and that was kinda gross, but the cake was delish

Pros: price, service

Cons: seating, menu options

Vegan, big portions, yummy - Edit

This place seems to open earlier than the other vegan joints in the area--that's how we ended up there on a recent trip to L.A.

My partner had an "omelet" with tomato and basil--it was delicious and huge. I had the blueberry buckwheat pancakes--also huge, also delicious, but I think I was more in the mood for something savory, than something sweet.

The service was friendly but slow--I think a large party came in right before we did. The place was packed, on a Saturday at 10:30am; the other patrons all seemed to be in their 20's (for whatever that tidbit of information is worth).

It was insanely loud--the only table left was right by the juicer and Vitamix. It was bearable after I put in earplugs. They have a shady awning outside--sidewalk eating would be quieter (though the street is a fairly busy one).

Pros: open at 10am, food: big, good, vegan, decent prices

Cons: LOUD! WHAT?, kind of grungy

vegangirltoo 22 Feb 2013 - I heard you went and ate a the FLORE Resturant. This is a little tidbit to know when you eat at FLORE'S again(which I hope will be soon). On Saturdays it is mostly geared for the younger people(the 20 something yrs. olds). It might be best to eat there earlier during the week. I hope this has helped you somewhat. Ooh I forgot when you do go, ask for a table AWAY FROM THE BLENDERS SECTIONS. Ask for a non smoking section by the window or something(remember NOT BY THE BLENDER SECTIONS THAT'S REALLY BAD,IT'S A SPOT WITH A LOT OF NOISE)!!!!!!!!!!!

My favorite Vegan restaurant! - Edit

This is the place i take all my non-vegan friends & it never fails to convince them that vegan food can be amazing. I haven't had any disappointing moments there- everything is so yummy. I recommend the FLORE BURGER! It's a lot of food but so so good. Also, the carrot cake is the best carrot cake I've had. PEACE! :)

Yummy - Edit

We've both ate there and had take-out. The food is delicious. Seitan quesadilla, reuben, club, and tu-no are all good. The cupcakes are yummy. The brunch is super tasty. We had the frittata and omelet and took a bite of my friend's blueberry pancakes. The service can be quite slow and the place looks a bit run-down, but the food is great.

This is absolutely my favorite vegan restaurant. I almost hate that I've tried so many of the dishes there because when I go, it takes me forever to decide what I want to eat. The tempeh reuben, tuno melt, burrito and quesadilla are all amazing. I love the cashew cheese. And the cupcakes are pretty darn good, too! Thank god my boyfriend will put up with me always wanting to eat there.

Pros: deliciousness!, cashew cheese, good lemonade

Delicious! - Edit

I went to Flore on August 8, 2008. I ordered a avocado and seitan salad with tahini dressing and it was SO good. It was a huge salad that also had mixed greens tomatoes, and other veggies. I was expecting less than great service based on other reviews I had read, but our waitress was incredibly nice and friendly. She recommended the tahini dressing, telling me it was her favorite with that salad, and I was glad I got it. The salad was fresh and filling, and the seitan had delicious seasoning. When I was ready for dessert and couldn't decide, the waitress told me the apple and cinnamon cupcake with cream cheese frosting "tasted like Christmas." How could I resist? The frosting was super creamy and the cupcake had nice, big apple chunks. I also ordered a lemonade which came packed with fresh mint leaves. Really refreshing after a day of walking around in LA.

Pros: Delicious Food, Friendly Staff

Cons: A little hot inside, but not a big deal.

Top 5 Favorite Vegan Restaurants - Edit

Flore is without a doubt in my top 5 favorite vegan restaurants... I've eaten there at least ten times in the last three months. I'm strict vegan and being able to go to a place where you don't have to worry about any dairy or meat is fantastic. Everything is UBER tasty... the BEST thing is Tempeh Bacon Pizza ! They're Reuben, quesadilla, cheese platter are all excellent.

Pros: Delectable, Decent Prices, Friendly Staff

Cons: Slow Service When Busy

By submitting this post you agree to HappyCow Terms

Amazing Food - Edit

Quite simple the best breakfast & brunch. The cooks clearly know vegan food has to taste great--no point serving hunks of tofu! The food is incredibly and innovatively spiced--they understand herbs & spices here. All brunch items great, but my favourites are the griddle cakes, buckwheat pancakes & omelettes.

Pros: great food, Brisk & efficient service

Cons: parking tough, very small space

Flore issues - Edit

I used to like Flore when it first opened. It's in a great location, Sunset Junction area, next to great stores. While the service has never been good there (though, yes, people are usually cheerful), and the place heats up like a sweat box during the summer, the food was generally good. Sandwiches, salads, nothing fancy. But more and more I've noticed things going a bit to seed. First, the waiters, cooks and cash register attendants looking kind of dirty. Dirt under fingernails, some major BO, etc. I saw one guy stick his finger into hummus he was making and then lick his hand, yuck. Also the restaurant looking less and less well kept, and the bathroom, so small, looking unclean. More and more, the food is looking sloppy, a bit worn and not tasting as good. Recently my friend got a Reuben sandwich, and the bread, which she asked to be toasted, was partially burnt. Then the menu stays the same. Other places, like M Cafe and Real Food Daily, change it up. I had such high hopes for Flore and just feel disappointed.

Pros: portobello sandwich

Cons: dirty, bad, blase service, not enough room

Good food, poor/slow service - Edit

I have eaten at Flore three times now, and while the food has been good each time, the service has been extremely slow and/or poor. I was willing to let that slide the first two times, but after today I felt compelled to write a review. My wife and I were seated and ordered: We each ordered a lemonade to drink, we ordered an appetizer of steamed edamame for a starter, and she ordered the Reuban (they were out of rye, so she chose spelt bread instead) while I ordered the vegetable pizza with no soy mozerella. After waiting five minutes or so, the server brought out one lemonade, and told us that they had to make more so it would be a few minutes. That was fine, so we shared the one that we got. After waiting 20 minutes, the server promised that our food was coming soon. My wife then asked about the second lemonade and the edamame, and the server told us they were "working on it". Another 5 minutes pass, and the second lemonade finally showed up, still no food though. 10 minutes later the edamame arrived, but was barely even warm. We devoured all of it rapidly since we were both famished. We finished that and it was taken away, and I asked my wife if she wanted to bet on whether my pizza would actually arrive with no soy cheese as I had asked. Sure enough, the server eventually came with my wife's sandwich, and told me that they had made my pizza with soy cheese and that they were going to make another one. (This was nearly an hour after we ordered.) She returned in another 5 minutes and told me she could just bring out the one with soy cheese while I was waiting. I told her I didn't want it at all anymore and to just please bring the check. She was apologetic and brought the check, and had taken off the two lemonades to make up for it. We paid and left, and I doubt I will ever return.

It's a real shame, because I do like the food, but it was a most unpleasant experience.

Pros: Good food, if it shows up and is correct

Cons: Slow service, Incorrect/not warm food, VERY loud inside

total 5 happy cows! hands down!!! - Edit

I originally set out to eat at Cru tonight, but it was closed. Luckily Flore was right down the street. There was a line! You can always tell if the food is going to rock if there is a line!!! That rang true tonight. I had the Tempeh Rueben. It was FANTASTIC. I wish I'd have brought my girlfriend with me because I could have easily split it with her, instead I cleaned the plate! Their dessert window was pretty low so I'll save it for next visit when I can share! But wow, Flore is great! You can't go wrong!

Pros: Tempeh Rueben, nice people, 100% vegan!

Yummy! - Edit

What a great place! We went on a Saturday for breakfast. I had the Tofu Benediction and my husband had the breakfast burrito. The plates were huge! My husband who has a great appetite could barely finish the burrito. The burrito was packed with potatoes,tofu,and tempeh bacon - he loved it. The tofu benediction was really good-it was so much food! There were three hearty pieces of bread topped with tofu, tomato, kale, and their own hollandaise sauce, with a side of potatoes with tempeh bacon. So good!
The place is small-but that's what makes it quaint. The food was reasonably priced.The service was spot on as well. We will go back next time we are in L.A.

just go - Edit

first of all, Eric Wareheim was at the table next to us, which was super awesome. plus the food was awesome (mad crazy raw cheesecake). best pizza crust ever, incredible tu-no melt. but it was cramped, chilly, and even a little smokey because the door was open. and the service was ridiculously slow. still, you have to go.

Pros: incredible food, silver lake is a great area

Cons: slowest service ever, crowded

okay - Edit

Honestly, I found this place to be mediocre. I do love the fact that vegan restaurants are popping up all over the city like crazy though! I've only been once. I would try this place again if I was in the area, but the service was slow, and they forgot the tofu that was supposed to be inside of my sandwhich and ended up giving it to me on a plate when I asked later. The tonic drink is nasty and I do not recommend it. The dessert however, was excellent. :) Go for desert and you won't regret it. In a funky neighborhood. Loved the flower painting on the wall. Should not be compared with Real Food Daily however.

Pros: yummy desserts, cute decor

Cons: mediocre food, service lacking

Good Concept and Could be Better - Edit

I've been here a few times since the beginning, and each time the food has been just okay. The space is a bit cramped inside, and the deli counter takes up a huge space. It's noisy, too. But the servers are cheerful and it's good to come to an all vegan place. Should get better.

So fresh! - Edit

This restaurant is the east side's answer to real food daily or M cafe de chaya! The breakfast on the weekends is incredible. Cranberry walnut french toast is my favorite.

Pros: organic, vegan staff and owners, innovative menu
