You'll have to get your redheads hummus at the grocery now. They are focusing on their distribution business and have changed the restaurant. We did try it out. Great breakfast burrito and salad. Will be back.

Stopped in here on a lark for lunch, and were not disappointed! Unique menu items made for an incredibly fresh lunch. The ingredients were locally sourced and the vegetarian options were delicious! So glad we stopped.
