    Loved the Nachos added fried tofu and made it out of this world! Also, had the chili with cornbread so yummy! So many vegan options it's amazing!!

    Blackened chicken salad is great, but by all means, don't come to this place for breakfast.

    Vegetarian chicken Caesar salad is really good! Good booth seating if you need to eat and work.

    Opening earlier! Lotus is now open at 8am, every day of the week, with a new breakfast menu! Banana-Nut Buckwheat Pancakes... Yum!

    Tofu scramble was excellent - the vegan cheese they use is definitely one of the best I've ever had. Great spot for vegan brunch!

    Be sure to grab silverware after you order in line and before you sit down. Cause they won't bring them to you with the food. Napkins too!

    A fav. Very casual; order at the register then grab a booth with your number deal-e-o. Good healthy fare. Big, happy salads. Tahini dressing delic. Kombucha, Coconut H20, Mt Valley Water...
