worth any drive - Edit

This place is great. I am thinking of rerouting my next trip to Providence just to go here (that good).

Tofu scramble top notch. Vegan GF peanut balls and oatmeal cream sandwiches are awesome sauce.

Pros: ample seating, outdoor view seating

Cons: middle of nowhere?

Amazing - Edit

Heirloom is my to go place for when I want something quick and satisfying. I am a ride or die for their vegan breakfast sandwich. I have also tried many other meals that are absolutely delicious. The staff there is excellent and so kind. They also have a cute shop in their restaurant with cruelty free and vegan products! If anybody were to ever come around this town I truly recommend this place!

a welcomed and pleasant surprise! (5 stars!) - Edit

What a pleasant surprise this eatery is! I would give it 5 stars except that Happy Cow allows restaurants that are not all vegetarian to garner a top rating of only 4 stars.

Heirloom's food is wholesome, fresh, all organic, mostly locally sourced, and except for the few tuna and bird and egg items, all the other dishes either already are vegan or can be served vegan, including with the option of vegan cheese and soy or coconut milks. To quote from their website: “At Heirloom all of our recipes begin vegan. That means, with the exception of two items (tuna wrap and turkey sandi), everything at Heirloom can be ordered vegan. All of our soups, baked goods and prepared foods are always made vegan.” All their desserts are vegan. Almost all of their soups are vegan. Their three burgers all are vegan. (Not Only Juice in Willimantic with egg in all your burgers, are you listening?) I recommend the Beta Burger (but not the Bella Burger, which is just a wedge of portabella mushroom, so not really a burger at all). Heirloom speaks fluent vegan here, so know your vegan requests beyond the ample vegan menu are very welcomed. (Vegans fare very poorly at lacto-ovo-vegetarian NOJ.)

Open 8am-4pm (not 5:30pm as listed above), they serve only breakfasts and lunches. Lunches consist primarily of salads, and sandwiches, and one daily soup. The soups always are luscious, nourishing, and satisfying. No meagre miso broths here. The sandwiches are masterfully crafted with always excellent ingredients. Daily specials are listed at: www.eatheirloomfood.com/daily-specials/

The food and the intimate interior both are unique. While the interior is small in square-footage, it hosts many nooks and crannies that act almost like booths, so a private dining experience is very possible here. Even better, there are two outdoor eating areas, the shaded one literally overlooking Main Street. Exotic plants loaned from the exotic greenhouses of nearby Logee’s (well worth your visit, as long as you are in Danielson) decorate both indoors and outdoors, so try to visit during the outdoors growing season, as the plants are especially beautiful. And more importantly, the plant-based foods are delicious and nutritious.

While Danielson is out-of-way in the northeast very quiet corner of the state, the restaurant is located only one mile off exit 38 of Interstate 395, and is right on Main Street. Look for its small sign along the street, as the building is set far back and way high up.

Awesome! - Edit

This is one of my favorite places! My husband and I visit regularly for breakfast or lunch. Everything I have ever had has been delicious and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. My non-vegetarian parents and non-vegetarian father-in-law all have enjoyed eating there as well!

Pros: local food, delicious, lots of options

Cons: little pricey, but worth it

Never disappointed! - Edit

Everything I've ever had at Heirloom has been fantastic. Nice people serving great food. Veggie Reuben, beta burger, vegan breakfast sandwich, and the mock curry chicken salad are all so good! Worth the trip from Providence too.

Pros: food, baked goods, juices

Cons: not entirely vegan

A great place to go! - Edit

Tried this place for the first time today - what a cute little restaurant! The people working there were friendly and went above and beyond. They have vegan and gluten free options. The guy behind the counter explained nothing gluten free is vegan because it doesn't taste right without eggs". I ordered a cup of white bean kale soup, 2 grilled cheeses- one with pesto and tomato on it, and a triple-berry muffin (I like to order food to-go so I can try more things lol). The food was awesome! So good. Can not wait to go back and try a smoothie.

Pros: Gluten free options, Great service, Foods so good!

Cons: Not open later, Closed Sunday and Monday

A Great Find in the Quiet Corner - Edit

Had a chance to stop and was greeted warmly from behind the counter. A cool space to hang out and plenty of options to choose from. We had the vegetarian Reuben Sandwich, which was great!

Several options of freshly run juices that gave a lemony-ginger punch to the day. Welcome to the neighborhood, you'll be seeing us a lot!

Breakfast and Lunch up to late lunch. Not a dinner spot...sadly!

Pros: Great Choice, A Juice location!, Great tastes!

Cons: We need a dinner spot with this menu!
