First Review by dreadjohn

Good food - Edit

My sister found this place by accident and ordered takeout for breakfast a couple of times. We had the breakfast burrito and the tofu scramble. I liked them both. I'd definitely come back hear. I don't know why much they cost but the portions were huge.

I definitely want to try them for other meals besides breakfast.

Pros: Tasty food, Large portions for takeout

Go-to - Edit

This is a great addition to the LB vegan scene! They have a huge variety of different kinds of food, so no matter what mood you're in, you can always eat here. I love their veggie crepe, and the Grain meal. The servers are always really nice and attentive

Latex Gloves:( - Edit

I couldn’t eat here because they use latex gloves:( I’m allergic and environmentally conscious. It’s so toxic I wish we didn’t even make the gloves anymore- it’d be safer and better for the environment because latex is not biodegradable. Sucks my family and I can’t eat here:(

Pros: looks good

Cons: uses latex gloves

Yes - Edit

Very beautiful restaurant on the corner of 4th and Ximeno very easy access and very convenient seating. Servers are really nice and serve very refreshing water. Got a lil crush on one of the servers but I won't get into that lol. Amazing food and awesome dessert very affordable food not cheap but definitely worth the price.

Just Ok... - Edit

The service was pretty bad. It took forever to order our food. It took forever for the food to come out and on top of that one of the orders was wrong and the food was semi-burnt. I like that they serve breakfast but I’m not sure this place is worth the drive. The food tasted ok....

Cons: No parking

Cons: street parking *can* be a pain.

Wide variety - Edit

I don't know how I missed this place before, but so glad I found it! It's always been tough to find places with vegan breakfast options but one that serves them all day??? Amazing!

We all decided to get breakfast for dinner since it's so rare. I hade the pancakes, tofu scramble, sausage and potatoes. Everything was very good. The tofu had the most egg like texture I've tasted. It was great with their home made hot sauce!

My wife had the waffles with fruit, she asked for strawberries and bananas but she got strawberries and watermelon(?) instead. She didn't complain but just took the watermelon off. A rather strange combo. My daughter had the French toast. It had a pretty custard-y texture like French toast without the egg. She really enjoyed it.

We'll definitely be adding this as one of our go to spots. Next time we'll try some dinner-for-dinner entrees and maybe some of the great desserts they had showcased at the counter.

Pros: great selection, friendly staff

Our new favorite place! - Edit

We're two weeks into veganism and were really impressed by this place. The food tasted great and the portion size was substantial. We tried the Club Sandwich, Tofu Chorizo Scramble and the French Toast - all amazing. Will definitely be back soon.

almost perfect - Edit

So far, lunch has been awesome. I was just really disappointed with breakfast recently. The crepes were a tough and the falafel was mushy and a bit dry, and the coffee was just horrible. I sent back the cappuccino and got a plain coffee but I think it's a personal preference: the coffee had a licorice/rooty flavor to it, which I really don't like. It left an after taste which didn't sit well. Coffee shouldn't be a reason to bring down a review, but at the prices paid, it's worth noting they should be better.
My favorite drink here is the ginger pineapple lemonade, that's fantastic. The club sandwich, the burritos, they were all excellent. I'm hoping I went for breakfast on an off day, and that it gets better. While I've spent a lot here already, I'll return to try other items I haven't had yet. For now I know what I don't need to try again but I'm glad this place is here now and seems to be doing very well.

Pros: entirely vegan, options for breakfast lunch and dinner, long hours

Cons: street parking, a bit slow to get the food out, inconsistent, some items excellent some not

Pros: Portions are good., Wide range of options., Tasty

Cons: Street parking
