This is definitely comfort food for vegans. The fries are delicious and the tofu sandwich was flavorful and satisfying without being too heavy. If you are a bean person, I highly recommend the pinto. If blueberry muffins are your thing, you must try the blueberry coconut cake. The cake is moist and the blueberries are fresh and bursting with flavor.... More

We stopped in for a snack after being told be many locals that this was a great place for vegetarian food. We had the Tempelo wings (tempeh buffalo wings), vegan queso, and a veggie burger with really good fries. They have a large menu with many choices. Great little casual place. Also, there are entrances on two streets. You can... More

I have been eating here for the last 10 years whenever I visit Asheville, and it always gets better! The place is nothing much to look at, very eccentric and not much of an ambiance but the food is delicious and abundant. Their menu is full of exciting fun foods. We ate the chili cheese fries, tempalo wings, tempeh reuben,... More

Traveled to Pisgah National Forest for some hiking and had the good fortune to locate a Vegan restaurant in Asheville. Well let me start by acknowledging the staff, Kelly, Sarah, Bob, Alex and especially Davie what a group of special people. The food was amazing the service was outstanding and the atmosphere was eclectic. If you don’t visit you’ll have... More

for many years. Went in recently for lunch with friends. I had baked tofu/avacado sandwich and chose the included side of chips. My friend ordered a side of sweet potato fries. The whole experience from the food to the wait staff was terrible and not like the usual experience we have had in the past. The tofu was very dried... More

We were a party of 5 and only 1 of us was vegan. We all thoroughly enjoyed our food, and had some amazing (non alcoholic) drinks, too. The servers were nice, and we loved that the restaurant provides low cost or free meals to those in need. We would definitely go back!

Read the trump review below and decided I needed to visit! Loved everything! My fiancé and I have very limited eating habits (no sugar, no gluten) and we were able to order almost anything off the menu! And it was freaking delicious too! They had this nifty break down of all the ingredients in all of their food. Our server,... More

Really enjoy this place. Had the curry bowl with cornbread and the curry bowl was the absolutely the best thing on a brisk day in Asheville. The have a good mix of vegan and nonvegan options so there is something for everyone. We usually prefer sitting downstairs in the Buchi bar. Nice that they have a system for 'paying it... More

This is a quality restaurant for many reasons. The first, most obvious, is the food. It's fresh, so tasty, such a great variety, and super creative. One of the specials was peanut butter baked tofu with mashed potatoes & gravy with kale. SOOO good! So good that I went back two more times during my visit to Asheville! I also... More
