    A welcoming vegetarian refuge since 1979, the meatless menu presents a mix of Southern and Tex-Mex soups, salads, enchiladas, and heartier fare. The cashew tamari salad dressing is rightfully adored.

    Get a bottle of wine. The list is really limited but the quality is great for the price! Only a few dollars more than what you'd pay at Whole Foods. Makes a casual night out a little more special.

    DeeLish! I luv how brown rice is served & the honesty of the server when offering sugg. He cld have steered me towards the more expensive meals but didn't!! He steered me towards healthy & delicious!

    Great about tailoring dishes to your unique dietary wishes-- bring your carnivorous friends for the mushroom stroganoff-- "meaty" without the meat, and you'll all be happy with the results.

    Hadn't been to my favorite veggie restaurant in a long time, stopped in for lunch. Walked in, sat the bar for 10 mins, watched the staff walking back & forth, no one said a word to me. Walked out.

    This is the heaven for vegetarians :) The dishes are heavenly yum-tastic; In addition, this place seems kid-friendly♥ and perhaps good for famaily gathering with a cozy atmosphere;

    Doesn't matter if you're a vegan or vegetarian or a carnivore, this meat-free restaurant has the most delicious food in the world. It's ALL about their quiche and chile relleno!

  • Vincent M.
    This and the other fine establishments in the Hyde Park area in this little intersection of Austin are an amazing collection of eateries and hangouts. You could almost film a movie here!
    Vincent Melgarejo · June 16, 2010
  • Pamela B.
    On Tuesdays their vegan soup is tomato artichoke bisque...perfection! Get the soup/salad with cashew tamari & you have a tasty lunch for under $10.
    Pamela Bennett · September 20, 2012
  • Chris T.
    One of these tips says something about filming a movie around here and let me tell you it's much harder than you think, you gotta get a camera and a crew and a budget and ugh. So much work.
    Chris Trew · November 15, 2010
  • Nora M.
    Don't get pie. Both apple and blueberry are truly terrible and you'll still end up paying for it even if it's so bad you don't eat it.The mocha cake is good though.
    Nora Maus · May 7, 2012
  • Stef S.
    Everyone raves about the cashew tamari dressing, but I like the lemon-basil better. One of my favorite salad dressings of all time!
    Stef Schrader · March 1, 2012
  • Christopher R.
    The artichoke enchiladas with vegan cheese are sinfully creamy, a feat indeed for vegan food. I find myself craving them!

    Nice environment. Our waitress has such a pleasant voice. She's a musician she said. Food comes out always hot & fresh.

    Being a vegetarian in Austin is nearly a sin with all the great BBQ in town, but if you are this is the place you want to be. BBQ tofu anyone?
    exfm · February 23, 2012
  • Michael @.
    Best veggie burger in the world. Seriously. Salads are amazing. The BBQ Tofu is the only thing on the menu that is bad.

    The Saturday and Sunday brunch is a must do. .. we go here everytime coming to Austin which is very often:-)

    Good vegetarian fare. Smoothies and desserts are yummy too. Cashew dressing on your salad is a must.

    They don't have it often, but the West African Potato Soup is great (and a bit spicy).

    Wine glasses are all under $5, meaning you've got some change left over to take home a bottle of that delicious cashew-tamari dressing.
