Operating since 1996, a coffee shop and cafe with a personality of its own of mismatched furniture, a game cupboard, and even the lighting (featuring old strung up Christmas lights) add to the laid back atmosphere. Also has a petite boutique selling trinkets and coffee beans. The menu features a variety of drinks, pastries, nachos, sandwiches, and full dinner menu. ATM onsite. Open Wed-Sun 12:00pm-11:00pm.

Trendy for a reason!

This is a big vegan hot spot and I see why! Super lowkey and trendy on the inside which makes is very welcoming. The food is so good especially the chicken sandwhich and the desserts. It can be a little pricey but it's a great place for a date! Just plan accordingly because the waitlist tends to be long since everyone wants to get in!

Pros: Delicious , Nutritious , Variety

Cons: Cash

Great eats, desserts, unique

I love this place for its unique vibe and food. The menu is almost all vegan and everything is vegetarian. I come for the confusion inducing coffee and tea menu. The food and desserts are amazing. Service is always so nice and the people are knowledgeable too. Portions are huge. Love this place. Opens at noon, cash only and closed Mon/Tues.

Came here with my family and we all ordered something different and everything was really good. I ordered the chicken francese and thought it was really good. It came with rice and broccoli and it was delicious. We also shared the Mac n cheese appetizer but I wasn’t overly impressed with that. Lots of options and a fun, eclectic atmosphere.

Favorite Place to Eat on Long Island

I learned about this place while a student at Adelphi but it took me way too long to finally try it. I actually chose this to be my special meal before moving to the capital region. I love the food, drinks and atmosphere.

Pros: Amazing atmosphere , Friendly staff, Huge menu

Cons: Cannot seat groups larger than 6, No reservations

The Four Aesthetics

1. Varieties that is not limited to black tea
2. Bohemian Cafe attire
3. Anarchist imagery
4. Vegan options in a vegetarian Outlet

I have to say that I am so saddened by my past self for not finding this sooner let alone making the trip. I had such fun and Visually stunning first experience that I didn't use my phone until right now! There is no need for me to be distracted because everything I was staring at it and everything that I saw inside and out was just amazing to me. And the staff is so nice! However I would never bring my mother because she would hate the look of the place inside and out lol

Pros: Lots of vegan meals and desserts, Great variety of different types of Teas, Culturally-diverse options

Cons: Moderately expensive, Outlandish interior decor

Favorite Local Spot

This is one of my all time favorites! I always come here to get a cozy, refreshing and intimate vibe with my loved ones or even by myself. The customer service is always on point! My favorites are the vegan Mac and vegan chicken Caesar wrap with the fries. 🥳

Long wait - good meal and good service

We ate here today. The wait was 30-45 minutes for a 2 pm lunch. We took a walk and returned when they texted that our table was almost ready after 35 minutes. Another 20 minutes of waiting in the cramped waiting area and we were seated. The food was tasty and fresh and arrived promptly with a smile. Vegan options were clearly labeled and the server confirmed all vegan requests after taking our orders. Everything was great and we will certainly return if we are in the area. We will certainly try to find a less busy time next time.

Pros: Nice selection of appetizers, entrees and sides, Easily satisfy vegan and vegetarian diets, Wide drink selection

Cons: No provided off street parking

Spooky vibes all year ‘round

Who doesn’t love Halloween?! Witches brew has been my favorite spot for so many years. Not only are the people super friendly and super duper nice with amazing decor but the food is amazing. I do know there are some drinks that can not be veganized BUT besides those drinks about 98% of the menu can be veganized and it is so amazing. Enjoy a savory appetizer, a filling entree AND a sweet dessert. Ugh the absolute best. Only downside is that is tends to get very packed but that only goes to show that the place is amazing.


Cons: don’t seat more than party of six, can’t make reservations , long wait time on weeknights/ends but worth IT!

Ultimate high school/college hang out. Extensive drink (coffee, tea, lattes, etc) menu and veggie/vegan comfort food. The gyro was excellent, as were the apps. Lots of variety to choose from. Also had an excellent birthday brownie. Staff was attentive.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Yummy, Fun place

if I could give them 10 stars I would.

This is a place to bring vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike. Please ignore the person who said they don’t label what’s vegan/vegetarian. Everything is clearly labeled and the waiters and great about paying attention to that stuff. If I order one thing and specify vegan, and then something else that’s only vegetarian, they’ll ask if I wanted that veganized. The wait is sometimes long but it’s worth it. I come here on a weekly basis and I don’t live that close. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is great. If you haven’t been here yet, go now.

Pros: so many vegan options, such a cool vibe, great food

Cons: sometimes a long wait time

Absolutely love this place. Will go back again and again

Went with my omnivore mom and brother who were hesitant and actually a little upset that I brought them to a place that serves no meat. Well... they are both going back and loved their teas and dishes (beans and cheese quesadilla and falafel sandwich and fries) as much as me (butternut squash gnocchi). Then we shared a vegan cheesecake with brownie crust and they said they wouldn’t even know it’s vegan. Can’t believe it took me this long to get here!!! Going back again!

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Tasty dishes and teas and desserts

Do yourself a favor, go here & order the Vegan Philly cheesesteak or vegan pot pie. All the desserts are amazing. Oh I miss living so close to this spot.
