Chef owned and operated

Just had a lovely anniversary brunch here! Wife and I got the vegan breakfast sandwich and the vegan breakfast burrito. The potatoes are off the hook and everything was delicious and filling! We were initially taken in by the pride flag and the seed exchange box outside and the service and food proceeded to exceed our expectations.
We are already planning our next trip up the mountain so we can try the rest of the vegan options on the menu! Thank you for a great meal and a really wonderful experience.

Pros: Knowledgeable servers, Helpful staff, Lots o’PRIDE

Nice Variety of Options

Alexa took great care of us for our anniversary dinner. They no longer have been on tap but she was able to recommend bottled options to our taste. We shared the Mezza platter and then I had the classic veggie burger and my husband had the Philly cheesesteak sand. All our options were vegan which was easy to do. Overall a very pleasant experience and was very nice to have vegan options in this small mountain town.

The food was fantastic, and our server was the best! You could tell the chef created something special versus just another vegan dish to put on the menu; and our sever obviously enjoyed what he did and a fan of the food. Great experience all around! We had the bbq burger with fries(with vegan ranch dressing for the fries😁) and the avocado tacos. The crispy fried onions on both, yum!!!…and I loved the crispness of the “burger” too!

Pros: Thoughtful vegan options, Outdoor seating, Friendly staff and great chef

Great vegan options

I’m glad I checked this app when I was visiting Lake Arrowhead! Amazing vegan options for a place in a tiny town called Blue Jay. Based on the previous review, I knew I needed to try their jackfruit ‘beef’ dip (got with side salad and added fries). Very good! I’m from LA so I’ve had good jackfruit dishes before, so I may not be in awe like newbies, but it’s done well. They also have several other options that are labeled vegan too! I recommend making a reservation bc they have a small staff/kitchen and on a Saturday we were lucky they fit us in without one. The waitress was super nice too. I’d definitely come back if in the area.

Pros: Good vegan choices, Friendly employees, Inclusive (all gender bathroom, lgbtq sign)

Cons: Short-staffed

WOW! Just WOW!

I’m not usually a huge Jackfruit fan … the texture usually isn’t my favorite. But the server said the Vegan “Beef” Dip tasted exactly like a roast beef dip. I figured that was a reach, but hopefully just as good. 🤷🏻‍♀️

To say this sandwich tastes EXACTLY like a roast beef dip is NOT an understatement. It is absolutely delicious! The vegan au jus sauce is incredible and when you dip it and bite into this sandwich, the flavor is just like a roast beef dip! (Ok, you get the point).

I can not recommend this sandwich more. Just wow!
