We stopped here for breakfast the morning we left Monterey. My husband had the pancakes and I had the eggs Benedict. We were both stuffed but throughly enjoy our food. It was fresh, tasty and home made. If you're in Monterey, please stop by here, the staff were so friendly and you're guaranteed excellent food.

This small local restaurant offers vegan and other options. We had brunch and it was terrific. Great scrambled tofu. Nothing fancy, just local casual good food. Very friendly.

I've been a vegetarian for over three decades and this was one of my favorite dining spots. The menu is extensive and the service is friendly. On one occasion, our waiter even sat down to talk with us! Do not expect anything fancy or formal here, but the menu is extensive and the atmosphere is casual, comfortable for friends.

Start with a really great and friendly waitress who is also the baker, home mad vegan hamburger, a mexican salad to die for and top off with vegan carrot cake and vegan chocolate cake and we had the best meal we have had in the Monterey area and at a reasonable price. So good that we are going for breakfast... More

Tofu scramble had a nice Greek flavor, with olives, a side of potatoes and sourdough bread. Artichoke scramble with eggs and cheese was good too, had potatoes and whole wheat(not vegan) toast. Hot chocolate was nice! Had interesting conversation with another customer who was old hippie. We went on long bike ride afterwards and felt well-fortified from our breakfast!

Stopped in on a Monday and were the only customers for a little while. Had great black beans and steamed veggies with lemon tahini sauce and veggie burger bits. So tasty. Came with a nice helping of brown rice. My husband had beans, brown rice and salsa with tortillas and carrot/celery juice. Very tasty all around. Treated ourselves to vegan... More

Good selection of vegetarian, gluten-free and meat dishes. Very friendly staff. Service takes a bit of time but that can be attributed to their made to order kitchen style. Definitely a dress down throw back atmosphere that makes you feel welcome and comfortable from the moment you walk into the store front setting. Its just a couple of blocks away... More

I was here many years ago when it was THE organic place in town. Think 70s. Well it has changed but so have the tomes. It is still an owner operated place but just doesn't have that feeling or taste of food cooked by a real simple food chef. It's ok for a salad and sandwich and you can still... More

We appreciated the friendly service, healthy food options (for vegetarians and non-vegetarians), fresh juice, and the variety from the breakfast and lunch menus on New Year's Day. We came for the organic vegetarian food and found many good choices as well as meat choices too. Breakfast burritos were great, as were the vegetarian eggs Benedict and mushroom veggie burger. Fresh... More
