“Some of the BEST vegan/vegetarian food ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

Wow!!! My boyfriend and I stopped for a quick bite and were VERY pleasantly surprised! The menu options are not many, yet I honestly have not tasted better vegan cafe/deli food. We had the black bean burger (SOOOO good!) and a veggie wrap (also super good!) and a greek salad. They also have fresh squeezed juice, which was phenomenal. My boyfriend, who loves a good steak and all things meat, was raving about the black bean burger. I'm craving another one just thinking about it! Prices are also very reasonable--like $7 per sandwich (though it certainly wasn't large, but a decent size). I would eat here everyday if I lived in the area!

Stopped here last Saturday, walked in shelves are half empty and they only Cary plain ezekiel4:9 bread. No one was even there to help you. They have a better selection at the Kroger in Kodak.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013

Catering to a crowd that my wife and I don't belong to may be why we decided on the 3/5. Had the black bean burger which was very good, but no drinks available other than the bottled/cans in the store which were $4 for a healthy vegan drink when I just want a Diet Coke or Sweet Tea! The grocery/cafe setup is kind of odd, but seems like other people enjoy it based on the reviews. A good healthy option for sure!
