    Each week sports a new theme, but the cafe has some consistent brunch-y staples, like a tofu scramble and gluten-free pancakes that can come with blueberries or strawberry sauce. Read more

    The chefs special: vegan nachos!! I also tasted the tempeh ruben. I say go with the nachos it was full of flavor. Oh! And the key lime pie is to die for so mousy and delicious.

    i don't know what they put in their food but i'm fully addicted. buffet is the way to go; more exciting than the menu. if i could hire jungle cafe to be my personal chef i'd do it in a heartbeat.

    The buffet is so delicious! Love the kale and whatever protein they have on a given day. I'm not even Vegan and I love this place.

    Just a buffet right now but lots of options! Everything is good and staff is super friendly. This is a great spot for vegetarian/vegans! Don't sleep on it!

    All vegan buffet restaurant. Good food, good prices. They dont have the full menu yet but going is still definitely worthwhile.

    Total tribal hippie vibe. Cute. Pricey juice but $14 all you can eat salad buffet for brunch. They say it's a brunch buffet, but there's only bad pancakes and tofu scramble.

    Nice place if you're craving an array of vegetarian options, and over cooking. Priced fairly.
