    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.

    The food choices are delicious despite the restaurant's bias towards vegetarian meals. Plan ahead before going. There's always a wait to be seated.

    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.

    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 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.)
