A popular place - even with all the bikers. We split a club sandwich and an Italian grilled veggie wrap. Both came with chips. Both were excellent and we didn't miss the meat. Very friendly service. The restrooms are outside in another building.

Was shocked to find a vegetarian spot in the mountains but loved everything we tried! Staff was friendly and I think were pleasantly surprised that we were excited about the vegetarian menu (sounds like some biker-types come in upset there are not burgers, etc). Shortened...More

A beautiful spot, and friendly staff, fresh food in a pleasant shady garden. Good huevos rancheros. Personally I dislike soya mince, which is the main constituent of many of the dishes, so was a bit disappointed as I'm a vegetarian and was excited to visit...More
