So many options - Edit

I've been here a handful of times and most visits are great. They're typically very busy on the weekends, but the service is usually pretty fast and friendly. The menu is cool because it is pretty much all plant based with the non vegan options being the ones marked specially. For dinner I've had the spaghetti squash and "meatballs". I thought it was good, just wish the portion was a little bigger but it's understandable. The vegan mozzarella bites are amazing but again it's a small portion. The buffalo cauliflower was also great and that's a plate where you get a large portion! The "eggs Benedict is amazing! I was apprehensive about the mushroom bacon, but it's a game changer. I'd recommend going on their off times just because it does get so busy and the tables are really close to each other . Definitely worth the visit though!

Pros: lots of options , cool decor, delicious

Cons: cramped seating at times

Extensive menu, expansive space! - Edit

I LOVE that this restaurant marks the non-vegan options on its menu! It's common to go into a restaurant and find the veg*n options marked but it's so rare to find an establishment that takes the opposite approach. (And they use the appropriate animal symbols to indicate which items have animal products!) Once you get past the novelty of the menu, you'll find that it's chock full of delicious options to please everyone in your group. The staff is friendly, the bar is fully stocked, and the food is tasty. Go solo and eat/drink at the bar, dine with your significant other in a cozy nook, or take your friends out for brunch. The space is huge (with an equally impressive outdoor patio!) and it's built to accommodate everyone. It can get quite loud, though, so don't plan on an intimate meal during peak dining hours.

Pros: Options!

Cons: Can get cafeteria-level noisy during peak hours

Plenty of vegan options - Edit

We had brunch here and almost everything on that particular menu is vegan friendly. I had the vegan Benedict and really liked it. One in our group (a vegan) got the Big Vegan Breakfast and found the tofu scramble bland but edible. Another in our group (a meat eater) ordered the Vegan Tacos and found the entire thing especially the tofu scramble bland enough that he didn't want to eat it. I'd still go here again. The brunch cocktails were delicious, our server was very attentive, and the restaurant itself is gorgeous inside and outside and has a really nice ambiance. They also have vegan donuts and cupcakes.

Pros: Very vegan friendly, Service excellent, Beautiful restaurant

Cons: Tofu scramble needs more flavor

Delicious Brunch! - Edit

There are not a lot of places to get an outstanding vegan brunch, so I was happy to find this place. Both times I've been here, I've been really happy with the food. The mushroom gravy biscuits are outstanding. Get them, you won't be disappointed! Really enjoyed the front street benedict as well. The side potato is really tasty too. It's nice and crispy on the outside with a vegan aioli and I'm guessing maybe a tomato jam. Everything has a lot of flavor and tastes very fresh. Great selection of vegan pastries. I love the atmosphere and the wait staff is great. My only complaints are the wait and how they make tea. Ordered a tea to go that was completely undrinkable. It had to be seriously diluted to be drinkable. That's some crazy overleafing. Overall, great vegan selection. I can't wait to visit for dinner and some drinks.

Pros: Best Brunch, High Quality , Very Tasty

Cons: Wait, Very hipstery
