This is one of my favorite vegetarian restaurants! Although they favor meat substitute proteins, the cuisine is creative and flavorful. I have had nearly everything on the menu and while I have my favorites, everything is good! I particularly enjoy the perogies and gravy, vegan, fries. Honorable mention to the meatball sub. The restaurant is a converted house, so there is plenty if that Bloomington charm, and chock full of owls! Local art is displayed with craft beer on tap, as well as gluten free beer! The service can be a bit slow, but is very friendly and helpful with questions about the menu.

“Fantastic vegetarian food!”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

I visit this place every time I'm in Bloomington. The food is amazing. It's tasty and filling and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is non-pretentious with fun owl-themed art covering the walls. The Rueben, Philly cheesesteak and BBQ seitan sandwiches are to die for. Great fries too!
