Located in the basement of a church on the Country Club Plaza, this is one of the three truly vegan eateries in Kansas City. By creatively using plant-based ingredients, they have successfully come up with comfort foods that would satisfy almost any diner. My favorites include theirMexican and Mediterranean entrees. The atmosphere is church basement and the staff are "Earth... More

I had lunch here one day and brunch the next. The atmosphere is very welcoming, and I felt comfortable even dining alone. There is a lovely little courtyard for outdoor dining. Service is outstanding. The sandwich I had for lunch was very good, but the brunch was really memorable--scrambled eggs with kale, green tomatoes, yam, and toast. I have a... More

The lovely outdoor seating on a pleasant Saturday morning in October hit the spot for an early lunch. The food was excellent, and the service was doubly so. We were asked to move from our four-top table so the restaurant could seat a larger party, and they rewarded us by giving us our meal for free! While I learned this... More

Awesome vegetarian food. The choices were all delicious sounding. The falafel were the best I've had. Staff is friendly and helpful. Loved the atmosphere and decor. The coffee was also good.

I'm always on the hunt for delicious vegan food while traveling. This restaurant did not disappoint! I ate here twice in 24 hours, so I experienced lunch and brunch. Both were very filling and hearty, and the prices were reasonable. Most of the menu items can be made vegan, so there are plenty of options for those who eat dairy... More

This was recommended by several online sources. Wow. Loved it! We had the the duet of pita and hummus and tzatziki. Perfect. I had the ginger shandy and it was lovely. The herbed and fruity ice with the fresh ginger was excellent. I had the avocado sandwich. Fresh tomato, greens, and a wonderful dressing made this a great choice. It... More

I gave it a try but didn't really care for what I had. I'm sure it's good for you but..... Haven't been back.

Lots of wholesome choices, so many options that we had a hard time figuring out what to get for lunch. An eclectic selection of drinks, all of which seemed exceedingly healthy. I think I liked my veg juice better than the salad. We sat outdoors because it was a beautiful summer afternoon. If we'd had to dine in the basement,... More

Don't let the location or the menu stop you from going. You don't need to be vegan or even a vegetarian to enjoy the deserts here. The amazing thing is, the desserts are all gluten free. Usually that invokes thoughts of really dry or dense food, but their desserts are truly amazing! My fiancé, who does not have a gluten... More
