    Love the Cauli of the Sea and crave it quite frequently. I like to order a really large side salad as well, not because I need it but because its so tasty. Jackfruit BBQ great too!
  • Stephanie M.
    They can make most the dishes vegan, too! Try the donuts, if there are any left. Adorable staff.

    Do not get the jackfruit sandwich unless you are actually vegetarian/like jackfruit's sourness. It doesn't compliment the BBQ well. On the plus side, the mushroom chickpea Burger is great!

    The pancakes with banana butter and mixed berries are a must try! I don't even really like pancakes. I also added the coconut cream, which was mostly delicious but had a slightly odd aftertaste.

    Lots of fun vegan spins on traditional comfort food with the full diner feel. We had to wait quite a while for the food although it wasn't particularly full. The food was good!

    Great vegetarian (and vegan) selection! Also has a comfort food angle, so meat-eaters may like it for that reason. Bay cauliflower is delicious as is the accompanying sauce. Homage salad is solid.
