    The food is getting better and better by the day, yet they're closing in less than 2 weeks. The recipes will be 'open source' and shared online.

    If you're very hungry get the Tofu Scramble or the Cheese Steak. Both very filling.

    Hands down the philly was outstanding. We tried the scramble for brunch too, which is really creamy and unlike others I have tried, but found it very filling and would have preferred to have more vegg

    I had grilled cheese for the special. There's no way you can even tell it's vegan. Highly recommended for simple comfort food!

    the food is often bland (spices?!?) but the buffalo tofu bites and seitan pot roast are great.

    Our critic wasn't crazy about this vegan restaurant, but he liked the "Buffalo" tofu bites, strawberry brownie, and mint chocolate mousse made from silken tofu. Read more

    Try one of the desserts. The mint chocolate cake and the pound cake (with lemon and almond) are tasty.

    Take your date here for jerk tempeh or the ingenious soy "corned beef." We're not jumping the meat ship here, but we'll admit to a stunning lack of post-meal heartburn - & that's energy you can use.

    The mushroom "calamari" is awesome. Nachos are to die for. Actually nothing on this menu is missable, including and especially the salads.
