Absolutely delicious. I got the sweet and sassy and my boyfriend got the Cajun tempeh. Both meals were superb. Service was incredibly friendly! We always make a point to stop in at least once when we are in Syracuse!

Killer casual grub, cupcakes and milkshakes are locally famous. Great place to hang if you can get a table. Fresh, local, delicious, and prepared just for you. You won’t soon forget this place.

This is a little cafe. Food is ordered and then brought to the table when prepared. They are so good that they always have a wait to order food. I have brought a couple of skeptical meat-eaters with me and even they love it! I...More

Warm & friendly inside. Soup & grilled vegan cheese soup couldn’t be better for our lunch selection. Milk shake options go on & on - try favorite of peanut butter & chocolate with soy based ice cream . Reasonable pricing - top notch vegan fare....More

I’m always looking for a good vegan alternate since I started eating vegan several months ago. This cafe happened to be right around the corner from my hotel. Well I can honestly say they did great on the food. It was served hot and is...More

I don’t think so. Order at the counter. Then go find a seat. Does get busy at peak times but tables inside and in the hallway area If you are considering it, I’d encourage you to go. It’s a great place for any meal and they... More
