I had the herbavore salad and it was spectacular. Vegan cheese here is great and I loved the fried mushroom appetizer. Great craft beer options too. A local favorite of mine, this place!

My partner and i had an amazing experience! Our waitress was so kind and very knowledgeable about the menu, even the rotating/seasonal options. The atmosphere is kitschy and hip. Although my partner usually enjoys a carnivorous diet, we both left satisfied. My bf had the...More
