First Review by BigRig08

Loved it - Edit

This quirky cafe has clearly labeled vegan options, including entrees, smoothies and multiple types of vegan cookies. I had a cup of the coconut corn chowder (amazing!) and a tempeh and kale burrito (very good) and some kind of ginger smoothie (great).

My only complaint would be that the kale in my burrito was slightly undercooked and had the stems. Either removing the stems or cooking the kale longer would make it easier to chew. My cousin had the same complaint with her bowl (which she otherwise loved).

The vegan cookies here were amazing! We got the snickerdoodle and oatmeal chocolate chip (of 4 vegan kinds available at our visit) to enjoy later and they were bliss in my mouth.

The atmosphere is casual / hip - they have interesting decor including some fancy toys on shelves, and plastic dinosaurs adorned the tables.

Pros: clearly labeled vegan options, awesome vegan cookies, quirky decor

Cons: undercooked kale (w/ stems)

Second Favorite - Edit

My second favorite place to eat in Reno. Super casual and has items for non-veg friends and family. The vegan cookies are so good that non-vegans can't tell. They always have great weekly specials that encourage me to order not my usual!

Pros: Sides, Fast, Specials

Cons: Noisy

I had the Cuban burrito and it was amazing!!!! It has yams, plantains, rice,and black beans! I added tempeh and guacamole to it, turned out delicious!! I wish I had more time to try other dishes because it was good!!

Pros: Lots of Vegan options!!, Great price!!, Great juices!!

Grilled and Yummy and Amazing - Edit

We had eaten at a Laughing Planet in Portland, and on a recent trip to Reno were happy to discover one here. The grilled veggie quesadilla with Daiya was INCREDIBLE. Unlike most quesadillas which are too heavy on the cheese and within unremarkable veggies, this beauty had just enough melty vegan cheese and the veggies had such a nice char that the flavors were WOW. I could eat this all day. Also ordered the special, a Santa Fe burrito, that had the most perfectly cooked soft BBQ tempeh tucked inside and drenched in a mild chili sauce. Amazing!

Pros: great for vegans and omni's, nice craft beer selection

Super Vegan-Friendly - Edit

One of my fave go-to spots when I don't want to have to explain "vegan" to the staff when ordering. They have many vegan options with healthy, nutritious ingredients. They also have vegan cookies which are delicious too!

Great vegetarian options - Edit

It is not exclusively vegetarian but offers lots of good options for vegetarians and vegans. We went there for dinner and liked it so much that we were back for lunch the next day! An oasis for vegetarians in a city like Reno. And there are several healthy selections.

Pros: Tasty vegetarian options, Friendly service
