“Outstanding food and a great fun place for any meal of the day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

I work in nearby Newport Beach and have had many great meals here. Their turkey burger is arguably the best I have ever had. Their Cobb salad is outstanding as are their gourmet pizza's. They have hand picked a nice selection of wines as we like to have a nice wine for dinner. Their breakfast is a nice kept secret and a good place to get caught up organizing the day.

I often bring home one of the catering menu salads for our family but have brought 3 different ones home for a very successful high school soccer party.

The atmosphere is very trendy but very casual but reasonable prices for gourmet food. Just a great place to go. FYI, they also have a nice customer loyalty program for frequent visitors.

“Great healthy food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

The anti-oxiodine salad is terrific. Great good and great prices. Highly recommend this restaurant. Great for take-out food, especially for parties.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

The food is great! You get to build your own salad or choose one that is on the menu! They have a nice wine menu! Seating is inside or outside! Parking is limited but that was ok.

“Not just for vegans!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Wow, what a super experience. I dropped by for breakfast, altered my breakfast burrito slightly to omit some spice and stayed to soak up the gorgeous details of the open air restaurant. The burrito was not at all typical, it was truly gourmet. There is so much seating both indoors at separate tables or at a long wooden community table. The bar area is intriguing, the outside spaces just perfect. Although the address is on 17th street, you need to turn at the corner light to find it tucked on the side. Plenty of parking in lot behind. Go!
