My favorite place in the area

You can order the "veganized breakfast burrito" off the secret menu - take the breakfast burrito and sub out eggs and sour cream for curry tofu and hummus. If you have the cash, the veggie bacon goes nicely. Vegan donuts are also a delicious treat!

Decent healthy option downtown

Nice little option in center of New Bedford. I usually get the spinach salad, but last visit they were quite stingy with the spinach.

Pros: Salads, coffee and smoothies

Cons: Terribly stingy with the spinach in the spinach, salad.

Quick and easy

I live super close and pop in here when i want a good coffee and a snack. Sometimes their baked vegan goods are already sold out come early afternoon but no biggie. Not a bad place but nothing to go crazy over either.

Great find

Stuck waiting for the ferry, hungry, expectations low. Here they have homemade hummus, tofu bacon and veggie burgers, and tofu scramble. What more could you want? The bagel with hummus, tomato spinach hit the spot. Hot sauce.... Good iced tea... Perfect.

Pros: close to ferry, tasty homemade vegan options

open airy dining with great veggie options

Had their homemade vegan veggie burger with mixed greens, tomato, onion, sprouts and vegan mayo on toasted wheat. (See pic) Fresh and warm with nice trip-color tortilla chips. Great coffee. All in an open and bright dining area with big windows to watch the world go by downtown. Excellent!

small gem

Great vegan snack options . They have tofu wraps as well as some excellent banana bread. Not bad for a small blue collar town ! A must visit

Pros: nice part of the city, relaxed atmosphere, best banana bread in town

Cons: not open very late
