Yummy food & good vibes

Vegan wrap was REALLY GOOD, soup of the day was mushroom barley and it was good (and I don’t even like mushrooms really) 😋 I just wish there were more sandwich/hot food vegan options

Pros: Yummy vegan smoothies, Lots of space to sit/work/study

Cons: Wish there was more hot food vegan options

Not great vegan options

They really don’t ever have much vegan pastries or food. I think there’s an upcharge for plant milk. Alright if you need to grab something but there’s more options nearby

For what it is, it is not that bad

This is a roomy, counter-serve coffee shop that seems geared toward college students. The food and coffee are not gourmet; they offer some vegan items and juices/smoothies, with a bunch of places to sit and relax with friends. The super-friendly but overworked person at the counter seemed a bit too busy to thoroughly clean the juicer items, so instead of a juice or smoothie I got a vegan burrito (the only vegan solid food they had; they were out of vegan pastries). The burrito was fine and very reasonably priced.

Despite my mediocre HappyCow rating, I would go back here if I were in the area and needed a quick, reasonably priced bite. Unlike a bunch of other places in the area, however, this is not a place that I would make a special trip to eat at.

Brownies and plant milk!!

They have delicious vegan almond brownies and other vegan sweets! They also have tons of plant milks to choose from including oat, coconut, soy, and almond!

Pros: Lots of plant milk options.

‘smooth’ organic coffee smoothie + vegan almond brownie

This order goes dangerously well together when I’m prepared for the caffeinated sugar rush that’ll follow.

Great artsy coffee shop

Stopped by for a late breakfast this morning, had a cup of coffee and the Perch acai bowl. Everything was great, the service was friendly, as was the atmosphere. It's a small space, and pretty crowded, but there were tables to share. The wall art was especially neat. Some of the bakery menu items were shockingly expensive, but most were moderate and, from what I had, well worth the price.

Pros: Good food, Good coffee, Excellent atmosphere

Cons: Expensive, Disposable dishware
