    This cafe is two parts: café and market. Feast on the juicy Balsamic Tofu Sandwich and then go for a quick stroll through its aisles, with products ranging from essential oils to dairy-free cookies.

    If you're looking for a delicious and affordable vegan meal, try the sweet potato-and-bean burrito and wash it down with a five-fruit smoothie. (Also, Pam is one hell of a waitress.)

    Beans & Barley is a staple for those of us that live on the east side, not only is it a restaurant that sources most of it’s food locally and organically, its a small grocery.

    Hummus and Veggie pocket!! Really good tahini sauce comes with it. And don't forget to look around the little store they have next to the dining area...lots of quirky little gifts and health foods!

    Move atmosphere, cozy restaurant space. Nice lunch option for busy days, since the service is usually quick, unless of course there are tons of people. Good food for sure.

    FRIENDLY staff, and delicious, fresh, food. I love the garlic and herb potatoes, the egg burrito, the biscuits and gravy, and their pancakes with granola!. Food is also very reasonably priced.

    The tofu fajitas are packed with flavor. Plus you get heaping portions of guacamole and bean dip on the side. On the way out make sure to check out the organic chocolate bars in the store area. So del

    The perfect healthy (and delicious!) stop after viewing some mind-expanding art exhibitions at UWM's INOVA space on Prospect.

    Amazing food, whether breakfast, lunch, or somewhere in between. Think "greasy spoon diner" meets "snobby foodie". Great selection of pastries and groceries as well.

    If vegan is your thing, try the sweet potato-and-black bean burrito and a five-fruit smoothie (and Pam is a hell of a waitress).

    B&B is SUPER strict with their "serving breakfast hours". They denied me 5 min past serving time and I had a order for about $50 of pancakes for kids. Get there early cause they don't care

    Get a coffee (a special Alterra blend, no less), a shot of wheatgrass, the mesculin salad with bleu cheese and dried cranberries, and the cajun grilled chicken sandwich. Best.meal.ever.

    Wheat Grass is ok not great. My friend in San Diego-Solman set the bar very high with his crop. Kombucha is outstanding! I have a drinking problem...but in a good way.
