Nice atmosphere, good food

I enjoy coming here for breakfast or lunch. Beautiful space with lots of plants and nice big windows. Usually I get the vegan bagel & lox or the banh mi, both are great (there are several other vegan options on the menu but I am a creature of habit). Their smoothies are tasty too.

Hit or a Miss

Its a gamble whether I'm going to like it but when I do it's good! I recommend the crunch wrap even though I can't eat it anymore bc the fat content hurts my stomach. The smoothies are tasty. Limited seating especially when planning to come as a group.

Vegan Sandwiches and sides

We enjoyed the vegan seitan binh mah and the vegan gyro. Sides were included, so we enjoyed the vegan tomato soup made with an almond milk base and a small side salad. The staff also offered up hot sauce on the side. It was all delicious and filling without being greasy or salty.

Pros: Vegan options with seitan , Excellent service , Fun setting with plenty of seating

I got the vegan gyro and tomato basil soup and it was wonderful. The seitan was beautiful marinated a juicy and the vegan tzatziki was stunning. They had several vegan and non vegan options but all were clearly labeled.

Pros: Local food, Several vegan options

Cons: Small sitting area

Their soup changes daily. This time it was a stunning vegan potato.

Used to be a fav

Hit or miss on different menu items. I really enjoyed the Buffalo tempeh wrap when it was offered. My husband loves the crunch wrap. Unfortunately not enough items that are both v and gf that aren’t salads for me to justify going often.

Skip the line around the block at Sunny Point across the street and get your brunch here. Ate here almost every morning I was in town. The crunchwrap is perfect if you had one too many the night before. The vegan lox bagel is tasty (and huge). Ginger miso salad was really good but I hoped it would be bigger for the price. Not mad about it though.

It's "Simple!" Five Stars. My favorite place in Avl for lunch

Excellent vegan food choices. My usual is the vegan gyro with an extra side of tdziki sauce, with a side option of tomato dill soup. Great diverse menu. Weekly specials. Amazing juices and smoothies. Curtious, kind, always polite staff. Affordable prices.

Good options

We enjoy the options and quality of the food.

The food is decently priced.

There is a small parking lot right in front of the building.

We would like to see the hours expanded.

Simple, yet full of flavor

I ordered the avocado tempeh melt (without the cheese), and I was blown away by how delicious it was. The bread was fresh and perfectly toasted, and all of the flavors complimented each other wonderfully. The tanginess of the tempeh was echoed in the Vegannaise and in the tamarind slaw. The avocado was fresh and creamy. I was so pleased. The sandwich came with a side, and I ordered the tamarind slaw and was so happy with that decision. I considered the tomato soup, which was vegan, but I can’t resist fresh cabbage, especially in slaw form. To accompany this feast, I also ordered the Dr. Feel Good juice and was delighted by the spice of the ginger and overall balanced flavors of the ingredients. I wish I lived closer to this place so that I could try out other options!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Healthy, Local

Cons: Juices are a bit expensive, but at least 16 Oz
