    Carrot pecan pancakes are great and vegan. (If you eat honey.)

    Really delicious brunch. If you want a filling meal make sure to get their breakfast quesdillla. The crepes are amazing. Friendly staff and the place is very bright. Music selection is a little odd.

    Food was great!! Some items are spicy so be careful on that before ordering. Service wasn't the best tho (but I'd say go anyway cause it was yummy)

    Green Envy was good. The lean and mean burrito was good too but I should have added some bacon to it. Fruit salad was actually a melon salad with pineapple.

    The second location of this daytime spot is bigger, sunnier and shinier than the original in Greektown. Read more

    If you ask for mustard make sure and ask for a bottle. I asked and got 5 small plastic mustard packets even though I could see the mustard bottles lined up. Flipping lazy.
