    The range of actual vegetarian food is great. I've not come across many places where being vegetarian isn't a disadvantage, here you're not.

    Ordered vegan hash stack, worth the price. Hash brown is delicious and the avocado is definitely a nice touch.

    I was leery of their vegan cakes and pastries, but they are EXCELLENT!! My tip is: if the cake looks good, get it even if it's vegan, cuz it's most likely delicious.
