First Review by Veganlove408

fancy health food / okay for vegan sustenance - Edit

I think you could get a reasonable meal at this all-vegan, all-health food cafe, but its target is more of a just-for-fun snack or post-workout stop. They do have a few soups and salads, but specialize in juices, smoothies, acai bowls, and other "superfood" treats, making heavy use of almond, cashew, and coconut bases and alternative sweeteners like dates and maple syrup. They also serve Verve coffee and sell a few yoga/wellness/beauty products. The doughnut we had was pretty heavy. I do congratulate them for figuring out how to make a doughnut from somewhat healthy ingredients (no white flour or sugar) but it wasn't exactly a great doughnut, if you've eaten an unhealthy one anytime in the recent past. Service was friendly and nice but slow. There's a large communal table or a few smaller nooks. We parked nearby early in the morning but later in the day I think it would be challenging.

Pros: all vegan, friendly, somewhat healthy

Cons: food quality wasn't totally enjoyable, slow to get food out

Delicious raw ice cream!! - Edit

I went here and only tried the raw chocolate ice cream and it was soooo good!! who needs "normal" ice cream anyways?? the cafe is small with not many tables but more of a grab and go place with healthy smoothies, juices and salads. it was inviting :), hope to go back soon!

Pros: Amazing raw ice cream, Good location downtown Willow Glen!

Cons: Not much seating area

Amazing - Edit

I've been here twice and both times the service was fast and the staff was incredibly friendly. If it's your first time there they let you sample several of their juices and nut milks. The first time I went I tried the almond butter and cacao acai bowl and it was honestly one of if not the best acai bowl I have ever tried. I also tried the chocolate glazed donut and it was also very delicious. I returned that same day to pick up something we forget their and I asked them about their cupcakes but there were none out so they went to check for me in the back and said they hadn't made any that day but they had one from the day before and said I could have it free if I wanted it.

Pros: All vegan , Food is healthy and delicious, Wonderful staff

Cons: Pricy(juices $9-$12)
