“Super Super Healthy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Fiber load for sure. The 4 of us had the buffet. Nice way to try something you might not otherwise. The Chai tea wasn't so good and someone had forgot to brew the iced tea..... The soups were quite good as were the rest of the choices. Very filling. Good experience out of our comfort zone. As a dental person the anti fluoride poster on the front door rubbed me the wrong way.

“Great vegan faire. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

I enjoyed the buffet here. Owner operator was a cool guy, the process a bit odd but once we got it explained to us, we had it worked out. Casual atmosphere, there may have been live music at some point, it never really started. Location was convenient, parking okay. Food was excellent, varied and interesting. Will come here again.

Decent casual place with fresh healthy vegetarian fare at a reasonable price. Buffet style lots of salad options, plus soups and a couple of entrees.

“Hippie health food buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013

Vegetarian buffet, many items were very tasty not as seasoned as I like but lots of condiments available to adjust the flavor. There was a big anti-fluoridation meeting going on and some live music. People were very friendly and owner chatted with us for a while. Would go back for sure.

“Casual and Friendly - Great food, great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

Loved the veggie buffet! This cozy restaurant delivers a healthful meal very inexpensively. Most of the food is vegan and naturally gluten free but they have a few more mainstream foods like lasagna with cheese. The entrees change daily but they always have dal/lentil soup which is delicious. I had seconds of it. The host joked that it is ok to have seconds, "They don't start pointing fingers until you've gone back 5 times."

You can also get smaller plates of food and they have alternatives to the buffet.
