Nice flavors and atmosphere

Cute place! Pizza is definitely the star. Sandwiches are good but not particularly nuanced in flavors (taste like you could easily make them at home). Still, it's all really good and a nice middle between indulgent and healthy.

Pros: Pizza, Dessert, Vibe

Cons: Potentially a bit overpriced?

Old Town Tustin Gem

This is a fantastic find in Old Town Tustin. We enjoyed the friendly staff and efficient service. The food was the best part. I enjoyed the Panini Frittata, which is vegan scrambled eggs, Roma tomatoes, red onions, heirloom arugula, with a sun-dried tomato aioli. My wife had the Atlantic Sandwich, which had vegan tuna, capers, oregano, red onions, organic mixed greens with a house spread. Both sandwiches came on sourdough bread and a wonderful side of organic mixed greens that included grape tomatoes and candied pecans! I finished off the meal with a tasty affogato for dessert! Fantastic place!

Pros: All vegan.

One of the top all vegan restaurants in OC

I can’t remember exactly what we ordered but we had a mushroom burger and mushroom pizza. The pizza was my favorite with it being so light and flavorful. I normally hate eating crust off of pizza but this was so delicious I actually finished a whole slice! Haha
The burger had an interesting apple sauce sweetness to it that I’ve never had before. I love the ambience of this place as well as the location in old town Tustin. Amazing service too, everyone was super friendly. Only thing is they don’t serve alcohol.

I had a lovely lunch on the outdoor patio - I enjoyed the panini caprese. It was fresh and just right for a lite lunch. Even the side salad with candied pecans was yummy.

Pros: 100% vegan, Nice setting - outdoor patio , Friendly staff

Tustin highlight!

Had the recommended Curry Ramen, which was not just pleasing to the eye but full of flavor. Topped it off with a frozen Matcha drink which was perfect for a hot day and sweet treat. Definitely worth the visit if your in that area😄

Pros: All vegan , Friendly staff, Indoor and outdoor seating

Horrible service

Went there to get dessert with my family. After ordering some cakes with the hostess I asked if we could sit at a table. The hostess told us we couldn’t sit at a table because the tables are for dining only. She told us that we can only take the dessert to go & we couldn’t sit at a table. We were really confused by this because there were a ton of open tables & they weren’t busy at all….

Cons: Bad service, Bland cake

Fresh, flavorful, & inspired

A truly delicious experience! Flavors made us go, "mmmm!" No GF buns or bread, but a lettuce wrap made my alfalfa sprout sandwich fresh and light. I loved the horseradish aioli on it. Salad was SO fresh. We'll go back before we go home to Colorado!

Pros: All vegan, Many GF options, Great outdoor courtyard seating

Cons: No GF burgers or bread options

Top Vegan Spot in Old Town Tustin!

Yo! I have here 20 times and every non-vegan I bring usually comes back without me. Everything is good here, family owned and Van has been my waitress every-time almost. I am new to happy cow and wanted to get this review in.

I rotate between the Truffle Burger, Curry Ramen, and the BLT. My pic is the Curry Ramen the flavor is masterful!

The appetizers are great - love the green beans. They have desserts too!

Every dish tastes like they care about every ingredient. Go get your Vegan on in old town Tustin.

Pros: All Vegan! , Outside dining - cool atrium - old brick facade

Red velvet berry cake!

We ordered the red velvet berry cake for a Christmas party. It was gorgeous and beautifully decorated. While the taste did not really remind me of red velvet, it was delicious. Just the right amount of sweetness, moist and fluffy. I LOVED the cloud-like cream in between the layers. Everyone in our group, including the omnivores, loved it!

While waiting for pickup, I also tried a vegan Shakshuka which was super delicious. Definitely want to come back when we visit the area next!

Pros: All-vegan, Great customer service with easy ordering

Tasty food but pricey plates

Food is full of flavor and very tastey, but for the prices they charge I would have expected the plates to be bigger. A $15 salad was about 10 pieces of lettuce…the ambiance does not match the plate prices either. It’s a cute spot but nothing amazing. Really do appreciate the thought put into the pure ingredients but for the price/amount of food, we won’t be coming back here.

Boy am I glad I ordered here!!!!

If you're ever in Tustin, you must try @freesoulcaffe, their food was incredible!!!! I really spoiled myself since I live so far away & got the Fennel Sausage pizza, the truffle burger & curry ramen. I wish I lived local so I could try all thier other options. These were delectable. It's making me hungry just writing this review.

I didn't have time to dine in, but the restaurant itself felt like a great spot to have lunch or dinner with friends & eat good for the soul cruelty free food.

Pros: Everything is great

Cons: None
