My wife, daughter and I were looking for good, basic food after eating rich cuisine for the better part of a week. Our daughter needed vegan choices. The Vita Cafe was just what the doctor ordered. I had a tasty grilled cheese sandwich, which helped...More

Eclectic menu, decor and staff. Great menu options for vegetarians or vegans. Meat also available. Daily specials are the best. Fun drink menu too.

Vita is a vegan cafe... I'm not vegan. However, I've never had a bad meal yet. Have only been there on weekends and tend to order the "cooks special", created by Alex. Haven't had a bad one yet.

We stopped in for a drink only. No hello or greeting, very blah waiter. Great Gigantic IPA brew. Nice Hot Totty and selection of soda. Cannot comment on the food, but the bathrooms were clean and functional. The only thing I don't understand, is the...More

We had a lovely breakfast here. I had the 2+2+2 with corn cakes and as the corncakes were so good, I ordered another separate serving of them. They truly serve comfort food here and even better that most of it is organic and local.
