    Happy Vegan has a nice combination of Farro Wheat with Cranberry & Hazelnuts, Quinoa with Cucumber & Beets, Green Hummus, Tabbouleh, Tender Greens - yummy! $11 and enough for two.

    everything is good. I tend to lead toward the fish of the day or the hefty cobb salad. And the agua fresca changes periodically, so make sure you ask for the flavor of the day!

    Happy Vegan. Even if you're not vegan. You get the most bang for your buck because it's filling, substantial and tastes really good - especially the hummus!

    Don't fool yourself - most of this isn't healthy, the portions are way too big. But it is delicious...

    The fried chicken salad is great. Chicken not heavy and the buttered lettuce and freckled romaine is delicious.

    If you order to go, make sure to ask for utensils. They are kind of stingy about giving them out.

    They make coffee sound like advanced astrophysics. I asked for a cup of coffee + have no idea if they understood me.

    It's a bit overpriced for what it is and they skimp on things like avocado and cheese
