We drove all the way from hoboken to eat here because we read the good reviews & thought we'd try. Honestly I don't understand how good reviews were given. Our experience was horrible, so much so that its compelled me to join this site and write a review for the first time in my life. I've traveled the world, eaten at the finest restaurants to the dinkiest hole in the walls but this place is a joke! I think the owners wanted to play restaurant with no concept of reality. I have no idea how they got approved by health inspectors!!!

Their website looks good & legit but when you're there its a whole different story. Decor was awful. They had fabric sheets (not even real curtains) hanging from their cafe to separate the kitchen. It was all badly stained with grease which did not make for an appetizing experience. We felt completely uncomfortable eating there because it looked like someone's house converted into a makeshift eating place so we ordered to-go. The place was empty and we were the only ones there but we still had to wait 30 min. for the guy to make 2 wraps & hummus carrot sticks for $20!!? Or shall I say I got ripped off $20 because we never ate our food, we just couldn't eat it. By the time we left, we both lost our appetite, the place looked so unsanitary. I took 1 bite from my hummus wrap that maybe had one teaspoon of hummus. It was bland and nasty! My husband's falafel was better but not by much. On the greasy side (not exactly healthy eating). My advice is to save yourself the trip and the money. Street food in Bangkok is a million times better experience than this place. And a lot tastier too! I hate to give this restaurant such bad reviews when I was so hoping for a good veg. place especially in NJ but folks have to know! This place is awful!!! Lowest rating I can give on this site is a 2 but I wanted to give it a 1.

Cons: awful decor, unsanitary, long wait

Great place for vegan food - Edit

My wife and I's wedding cake was vegan carrot cake, so when we tried the vegan carrot cake here and it was just as good we feel in love with the blended beverage. We have only tried some of the wraps so far, but they have been great.

Excellent - Edit

Went there for a bealsted birthday dinner for mom. I am a vegan transitioning to raw and soon to fruitarian. Although I discovered it's a good idea to call ahead if you intend to have the raw food just so they would have it ready for you. I did not call but the had the available raw nut burger which is heaven in the raw vegan world. I had the veggie wraps with a smothie as my mother as well. The place is small,cozy enviornment and service extremely polite and attentive. The food had flavor, no salt needed.

Pros: healthy menu, polite staff, reasonable price

Cons: raw food selectin not always avail

Very Very Berry Delicious - Edit

Well I was walking by this cafe and I thought I would stop in and see what they had. The menu looked good but I wasn't really hungry so I just bought one of their signiture juices. The very very berry was a refreshing light taste like real juice is suppose be. I wished they had a bigger version, but since they didn't I bought 2 more and took their card.

Pros: drinks cheap, taste great, will be back

Cons: need bigger sizes

A Great Cafe - Edit

I heard about the blended beverage cafe from HAPPY COW. So I thought I try them out since it has a 5 cow rating and is close to my home. I see why they have such a great rating. My whole experience was great from walking in to leaving. The guy who made my order, I believe his name was Shane was very nice. I wasn't sure what I wanted and he recommended the citric chicken wrap which was delicious. He also recommend I try thier brand of juices. I tried the sunshine and a smile swept over my face when I took the first sip. I think those juices should be sold around the world. My experience was so great I'm definitely coming back and telling the world to try them out.

Pros: Excellent Food, Excellent Drinks , Excellent Service

Great Place - Edit

This place was pretty good, the service was fast considering it's only one person making the food and she made food for three people. It is a tiny place but nice. They do accept credit cards now and all of the food is vegan, but they did have honey packets by the tea so I don't know their stance with honey. The food was excellent and the raw food dish we tried was full of flavor. The price is a bit on the higher end but nothing extreme and they do have specials.

Pros: Fast service, Great tasting food, friendly staff

Cons: small
