My go-to for great vegan burgers and paninis.

Delicious & family friendly

Lots of options, separate vegan menu. Large portions & sides available like chips. You can also “make your own” but need to ask for options at register so maybe check delivery app before you order. Some outdoor seating but also indoors. Has a creative decor / vibe, service was a bit confusing, but in the end we got what we ordered and ate it all. Was about a 10 minute Lyft ride down the road from universal/ volcano bay/ adventure island area of international drive. Bonus: Whole Foods is next door if you want a vegan cookie😄

Pros: Separate Vegan menu and can be modified, Yum food, Next to Whole Foods for dessert!

Cons: Location

Vegan Panini Paradise

The vegan paninis are delicious (there are 7 of them), and the red beet and chic pea “burger” panini is right up there too. The non-vegan options make for an inclusive place for all to enjoy good food together.

Pros: Lots of unique and great tasting vegan options. , Non-vegan options help include everyone.

Cons: Pepsi instead of Coke products ;-)

Poor Customer Service

Arrived at the restaurant at 7:15pm, my group placed the order and the lady taking the orders told us that since they close at 8pm our order had to be made to go. She would not allow us and many other people that came a little after us to eat inside. She kept repeating that since they closed at 8pm all orders have to be to go. I find this very inappropriate. I don't know if this is something that she made up to get out on time, or if it is a corporate decision. If it is the latter, there should be a sign outside of the store or on the website to notify their customers so they can plan accordingly.

Pros: Good amount of vegan options

Cons: Poor customer service.

I am so happy that my cousin and I visited this restaurant! The environment was nice and the staff was so kind to us. I could not stop thanking them and praising them on how delicious the food is. I ate the vegan "chicken" panini and curly fries on my first visit and I plan to make many more trips to try the other options on their separate vegan menu.

Pros: So many vegan options, Great prices, Large portion of food

Over 12 Vegan Options

This nice shop in Dr. Philips has a ton of vegan sandwich options and delicious fries. Only thing that would make them better would be if they were fully plant based

Pros: Lots of vegan sandwich options, Great variety

Cons: Not fully plant based

Vegan options are outstanding

It’s clear the vegan options aren’t an afterthought— the vegan menu shines at this panini spot. Will be lunching here every time I visit the Whole Foods next door

Awesome food

The roasted beet burger was delicious. My non veg friend had the senor caesar salad with lite raspberry vinaigrette and loved it. Would definitely recommend.

Great vegan options!

They have several vegan and veg-friendly options. Today I tried the Impossible Burger for the first time. They added vegan cheese. I had baked sweet potato "fries" on the side. Everything was great.

They have indoor and outdoor seating. The staff was super friendly and very knowledgeable about vegan food. At least one staff member was vegan.

I lool forward to trying their other vegan options.

I highly recommend it.

Pros: Vegan options clearly marked., Staff knowledgeable about vegan., Vegan cheese! Impossible Burger!

Cons: Limited vegan options.
