    Great casual vegetarian restaurant, most items vegan by default. I always get the sweet potato fries with Thai peanut sauce. It's not on the menu but ask for the hot sauce.

    Best vegan place I've been to. I'm a carnivore and I never feel like I'm eating bland vegan food because everything they make I'd delicious!

    If you order one of the burgers, you will definitely not leave hungry. Plus, get the #quinoa battered #onion rings on the side because they are delicious.

    Good place with nice nutritious food. But could be even better if they (a) had Wi-Fi (!), and (b) had gluten-free stuff marked on their normal menu, rather than only on a separate gluten allergy menu.

    Most people know about the half price daily bowl between 2pm and 6pm right? Servers don't always mention it, perhaps they think it cuts their tip on half. Tip fairly and ask for the feature. Yum!

    Really good vegetarian food. Their wraps and bowls are delicious. Also try one of their smoothies. The powerhouse is excellent.

    A must. ORDER AHEAD. This location is always stupidly busy and wait times for food can be up to 1/2 hour. Review menus online and have it waiting for when you arrive

    Stuff is hit or miss - when you find the right thing (often with the right substitutions) you'll be set. New BBQ burger rules + grilled corn bread and holiday wrap w/ crunchy tempeh.
  • Fresh R.
    Fresh RestaurantsJanuary 11, 2011
    You can substitute any tempeh or tofu product for another in a dish without extra charge. (for example-crispy cubes instead of tempeh, grilled steaks instead of crispy cubes, etc)

    There is an equal amount of beet juice in the small and large Beet Root Frapes - they just add more apple and carrot to make the large.

    Terrible takeout. They got the order wrong and gave me nearly all rice. Never picked up the phone when I called — put on hold for nearly 20 minutes and still no one came on the line. Over rated.

    This is a tip for the wait staff... when two people are obviously having a serious (emotional) discussion at the table - leave them ALONE until they give eye contact for the bill.
