Cool place with a few good options

Stopped into downtown Ocala to get a flavor for the local town. Give this place a try. It’s a coffee shop that can almost be a diner. Place was packed on two levels but service is fast. We had a Vegan blueberry muffin which was good, and a just egg substitute quiche spinach, fully vegan that was really great. A few other my items pretty clearly marked as Vegan. if you’re looking for a coffee shop with some vegan options, and some cool people watching, this is the place for you.

Breakfast burrito

I got the breakfast burrito because they ran out of the nest with the hash browns. It was good but kind of pricey for the size.

Pros: A couple of vegan options

Cons: Pricey for the size.

Welcoming atmosphere and tasty vegan options!

I ordered the vegan nest and a lavender latte and they were really yummy! There’s multiple vegan options on the menu and the staff was super accommodating for any vegan adjustments. They even came out to double check an adjustment for my meal. It’s a super cute cafe in the Ocala area and the staff was very fun and welcoming!

Pros: Multiple vegan menu options, Easy vegan accommodations, Attentive and kind staff

Cons: Smaller portions than I expected

Super cute place

Super cute place. Good food and a few vegan options. I had the special which was vegan chipotle toast. Besides first watch, Ocala doesn’t have any other place vegans can go for brunch, so this was a good find. I only wish they were open on weekends
