    This Ann Arbor / Detroit vegetarian hotspot continues to impress with its clever and expansive menu and attractive drink specials. The juice bar offerings help out, too. [Eater 38 Member]

    Really good food in a hip, trendy atmosphere. Good selection, even for true carnivores. The service was good, with both the server and hostess being very friendly.

    I tried the Vegan California scramble. It was delicious. My granddaughter is vegan and although they also have vegetarian (eggs, butter, etc), this is her favorite place to go. Try something new!!

    Had the yam fries (w/ vegan bbq sauce) and pad thai, and both were terrific! Be sure to try the fruit juice as well. The orange blast was refreshing!

    The gold standard in vegetarian fare -- just opened its Detroit location on Forest Avenue. You get the same imaginative menu and friendly service here, too. Read more

    Great food, mostly organic. My fav: scrambled eggs w/spinach and jack cheddar and toast. Couple that with a Patron gimlet and you've got a great meal!

    The cilantro peanut stir fry is pretty killer. And if you're in the mood for a juice--the Cool Breeze is fantastic. My favorite way to consume beets? Liquid.

    Vegan options are plentiful, but we recommend the seva club, with faux turkey, smoked coconut, avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, and vegan aioli, all on signature bread.

    I would have eaten my food even after they dropped it on the floor. I had the Seva Club and the coconut tastes like bacon! EXCELLENT!

    same tired old ideas a lot of vegetarian restaurants default to (w/buzzwords!), but it doesn't bode well when a vegetarian place can't even make decent black beans. good hot sauce and staff though.

    Unlike the Ann Arbor location, the Detroit Seva does not have regular French fries, only yam fries. Otherwise, this place is great!
