I'm in love.

I absolutely love the green cat! I don't live in Hampton Roads anymore but I try to stop by when I visit home. I love visiting on the weekend - grabbing raw vegan food and taking it to the beach, just a block away. The gingerbread smoothie around the holidays is beyond delicious. The kale salad is perfection. I love everything I've tried. Also love their little shop. I bought a bracelet from there that I wear most days.

Clean Meals

Ordered the Mother Earth which was delicious. My fiancé ordered the Sippin on Zen which was also great. We split the Green Goddess Toast which we also enjoyed but was missing the microgreens, very tiny, and definitely not worth $13 at all. Overall a nice clean breakfast.

the açaí bowl was mid, i probably wouldn’t recommend but the fact that it’s all vegan, has a nice vibe to it is amazing. and the coconut lime matcha cake and peanut quinoa salad was great! friendly workers too.

Always a favorite

We have been coming here during our annual beach vacation for years. It never disappoints and is a great chance to eat some real food after days of junk. I was bummed to see today that they seem to have taken the No Chix Salad off of their menu as that was my go to. Today I tried the Kale Caesar Salad and it hit the spot though! I also had a DELICIOUS Strawberry Crisps Toast. So Yummy!

Great Vegan Breakfast!

I got the Blue Majik smoothie and the Cherry Chia oatmeal, and both were great! I love how all the options are vegan and they have such a great variety. They were understaffed and experiencing a large customer volume, but were very kind and apologetic. Overall, a great place that I would recommend!

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Love it!!!

Cool setup with merchandise, dining area, and more. The food was incredible! I got the Green Goddess Toast and the Açaí Smoothie Bowl. Some of the best vegan food I’ve ever had. It was all organic, too!

Cute shop and cafe

This place is so charming and cozy. The gift shop has cute accessories, decorations, and perfumes. The menu is fairly pricey for the serving size but the food is always great. The blue magic bowl and the pesto avo toast are my favorites.

A bit spendy but yummy

I’m told food prices are rising due to COVID stuff (supply chain, etc.), that might be why it seemed a bit expensive, but everything was delicious!

Pros: Kale salad was jam packed! So much food.

Cons: Not a ton of quick grab and go options

Organic Vegan food on the Beach

Love that there are some healthy vegan options right on the beach front. I don’t know what I would have eaten for breakfast every day without them. I highly recommend their avocado toast and Golden Latte.

Pros: Healthy, Organic, Vegan

Cons: Wish they opened earlier

Cons: A lil pricey, but worth it!

I'll be back

Something to note is that the written menu inside the store does not necessarily reflect what ingredients they have available. I went in with my heart set on a Blue Majik smoothie bowl, but the only two variations they had listed were Acai and Peanut Butter Chocolate.

Damn. But I thought to myself that I can appreciate the owners wanting to downsize their menu because of covid. What really hurt was when (after waiting at least 15 mins for my smoothie bowl) I saw a worker walk pass my table with the coveted Blue Majik Smoothie Bowl (they also ordered after me but I'm not going to be thaaat petty).

In conclusion... they broke my heart (jk).
But really, I'll be back since the Acai bowl I got instead was pretty awesome in its own right. The consistency was not unlike a Dairy Queen blizzard and it was dessert sweet thanks to a fair amount of added sugar in the form of agave syrup. I also didn't feel weighed down after eating it, which is a major plus.

Awesome smoothies!

Me and my family really enjoyed the smoothies there albeit they were really pricey. I loved how you could substitute ingredients and customize your own drinks. I also personally enjoyed the vegan treats, and premade foods available in the front of the store from other vendors.

Pros: Very vegan and health friendly

Cons: Pricey

Very expensive for the quality

Healthy options for vegan food. Good concept and relaxed atmosphere with a cute shop inside. Friendly and helpful staff.

However, very expensive for the quality. Salad was very basic (even though the dressing was handmade). Juices very pricey and not as high quality as expected.

$86 for 3 salads, 3 juices and one slice of cake 😱

Pros: Free parking , Location, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Very expensive, Basic ingredients in salad , Not high quality for the money

Just what I was looking for

The staff was super friendly. The shop is welcoming and has a boho flair.
It was a quick and easy walk from our hotel.
The food was so fresh and organic 😋 We went several times during our visit and each time was just a delicious as before.
The green fruit bowl was loaded, so healthy and filling. The avocado toast was done to perfection topped with micro greens!

Cons: None
