I absolutely loved this place! It was quick, the food was delicious and healthy and price was reasonable! Did I mention it was delicious as well? I ordered the Mexicali Bowl and it was yummy. The staff was very friendly and the location is unbeatable.

Clean, organized, appealing so we ventured in. We had bowls, both pesto one chicken one tofu. Good flavor and taste. Quinoa was fluffy. Price was reasonable. The observation room for improvement was light on tofu and chicken. Good menu options will be back.
