    Cute little restaurant with friendly service and nice ambience. I like the paninis and soups- be sure to check out the daily specials! p.s get the cheesecake, you won't regret it.

    Amazing brunch! Cashew almond feta scramble was amazing and the French quarter pain perdu was a slice of heaven! Definitely try out the homemade vegan biscuit! So delicious!

    You get what you expect at this modest vegan spot-modest prices, service and flavor. Brunch $12. Nome gomae salad was ok. Po' boy with scramble good with tofu scramble & coconut sauce. GF choc cake!!!

    Incredible vegan brunch. Best tofu scramble I've ever had and awesome biscuits on the buttermilk biscuit po' boy. Killer greens in an awesome tangy dijon based sauce. Oh, and order the sausage.

    Ordered protein bowl with nama Tori and WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED AT ALL. Loved the seasoning and the portion. But I made a wrong choice to try adding a hot sauce that made it salty... nevertheless GREAT

    3 tapas plates for $18. If everyone at the table gets tapas, you can basically sample the whole menu. Dijon kale is fantastic. Service is very slow, but didn't mind. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The Omega-3 waffle is awesome! But sometimes they throw a ton of cinnamon on there, so if you don't like cinnamon, speak up. Also, ask for the creme freche on the side, so it doesn't melt.

    Order ahead and take the food to go. The few times I have dined in, I have waited an hour for food. The food is excellent though, so plan accordingly.

    This place has food to DIE for. 3 tapas plates for $18---a dinner for two you can get 6 plates to share for $36 ---perfect!

    Power bowl with ginger seitan is incredible! Seitan tastes like brisket. So you're getting brisket, rice, and collard greens. Yum!

    Vegan and quaint in the heart of SoHo. Try the soy meatball sub and smashed sweet potatoes - both are excellent.

    To be honest we have ordered in from here and it was decent the first time, second time it was unappetizing, but we will go in person and I'm sure it will be much better!

    It's alright. The prices are up there and if you want to spend this much, go to Gobo instead. If you want to spend less, go to VP2 or Red Bamboo.
