A very enjoyable meal, flavoursome and wholesome. I'd walked past this place and thought it looked a bit "fast food" but it really is much better than that.

Sat outside on the patio on a lovely day and had a delightful time of discovery here. Had the cucumber lemonade and sea bass tacos and could not have been happier. Our server was sweet and kind, and we didn't have to wait. My friend had a vegan BLT and she was equally happy. I am gluten-free and had many choices here.

Love this restaurant. The Atmosphere is urban chic, the food amazing. You can't go wrong - I've tried most things on this menu. I just have a hard time choosing. Always start out with a juice concoction - my favorite is the Kale Lime Aid.

Not every attempt to convince children that eating healthy can taste good works, but after eating at True Food on Friday they wanted to return on Saturday. It was refreshing to have something besides chicken nuggets on the children's menu and I have since our visit recreated the almond butter and apple sandwiches multiple times. The greens smoothie was a bit of a taste adventure that we wouldn't recommend unless you need a colon cleanse, but everything else was delicious, fresh and satisfying not only for grown ups for for kids as well.

How lovely to eat somewhere that you can actually taste the food, its not smothered in cheese or calorie ladened sauces.

We had the chicken teriyaki rice bowl and the lemon tart and blueberry cobbler, everything was fresh, crunchy, tasted authentic and homemade.

We waited for a table but the service was lovely, genuinely smiling staff who were helpful in their advice.

Walked out feeling full but not gross. Loved It
