Amazing experience

We were driving through the area and found this place on Happy Cow. So glad we stopped. Clearly marked menu items are always a plus. The woman working the counter was a powerhouse! She presented us with great options and took time to explain dish modifications even though she was busy.
Our youngest really wanted sides of brown rice and plain tofu. The kitchen was accommodating. Little things like this go a long way for a mini vegan kid.
Their vegan BLT is perfect. The Tempe has a wonderful flavor.
The house made black bean burger was so good. Sweet potato and black beans. In a world of fake meats it's refreshing to get a well executed vegan burger that isn't trying to be meat. It is absolutely delicious. I highly recommend it.
The portions were generous. The ingredients are all well cared for and high quality. The side salads were beautiful mixed greens with a great house made vinaigrette on the side. The tea menu was great and really well thought out. They also serve a great cup of coffee.
When traveling we often set our expectations lower and pack a lot of food. Finding this place made our travel day infinitely better.
Mellow Minded would definitely be a staple restaurant if we lived nearby. The family friendly atmosphere was inviting and chill.
We got smoothies for the road. They were delicious and kept the kids happy in the car. Nutritious yummy food can be so hard to find. If you're traveling it's well worth the small detour off the highway.

Decent Meal, Uncomfortable Service

I am not from the area, so was visiting for the day & dropped in for their vegan options. I’m told by those I was with that this place is always a HIT which is not something I doubt as the place was steady and it has some good reviews here too. I got the vegan version of the BLT with some avo. on it with a smoothie. Overall, I got what I ordered and that’s that.

NOW, the customer service we all got that day was unwarranted. It was out of no where abrasive and clearly not typical service per the regulars I was with so I’ll leave it at that. It was a very weird vibe & made me not want to even eat my meal there.

I wish I could’ve raved about this place as I usually do about spots.

Pros: Maple Tempeh = Yummy, Cute Design, Clean Bathrooms

Cons: Uncomfortable Customer Service, Pricier

Good food!

A really cute cafe with tons of vegan options, including plenty of smoothies. They also have an additional breakfast menu on the weekend with vegan and gluten free quinoa pancakes. The staff was also very helpful!
