    I came during Eclipse weekend, so it was crazy. It is a small mom and pop type restaurant that was Celiac friendly, but the food was a bit bland. It took awhile for service, but that was probably due to the busy weekend from the Eclipse. Once we were served - the waitress was great.

    Amazing! I am not vegan and my family is neither gluten free or vegan and we all enjoyed it!! Almost the entire menu is gluten free and the waitress was extremely knowledgeable!

    The food tasted great and the server was pleasant and knowledgeable. The noodles for my manicotti were strips of sliced zucchini, not pasta noodles. Sadly, I have a sensitivity to almonds and they primarily use almond milk and flour.

    I knew going into this place that it was a vegan restaurant but unfortunately everything I got (though gf- yay) was way too vegan tasting if I can describe it that way. I ordered the flat bread pizza, kale salad, and corn salad. If you are new to vegan food or have never had it before, you will leave believing vegan food is nasty. Which does not have to be the case. I've been vegan for 6 years and this restaurant though clean and celiac friendly was a major let down.

    So perfect for those of us with food allergies!! The flatbread pizza and lasagna entrees were fabulous and the raw chocolate mousse tart was heavenly. Wish I could eat here every day!!!

    It was all so good! It was freeing to know ALL the menu items were GF! I had fun ordering savory items I can't usually order because they are full of dairy like lasagna! I got the sampler plate so I could try as many things as possible. The lasagna was my favorite! The pizza was good too. Many of the dishes were also "raw" or components of them were. HUGE food portions!

    Our group of 4 went in not realizing it, but the restaurant menu is entirely GF. We also learned it is raw & vegan. Had I known that, we probably wouldn't have gone - we enjoy relatively healthy, real food, but that's about it. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Even my veggie-averse 4-year-old loved everything. We ended up with many dishes, not realizing how large the portions would be and that there were sides in addition that were included. We tasted about 7 different things and all were excellent and well-received by my carnivore husband, 2 kids and me. Only my 7-year-old daughter needs gluten-free but we all loved lunch. We tried several salads, chips and guacamole, a burrito, a banana "bacon" and almond butter sandwich, and a noodle dish (zucchini, sweet potato, daikon or kelp noodles) with various sauces... I had zucchini noodles with mushroom stroganoff which was excellent. Nothing was as expected but everything exceeded our expectations. Only downside was our server was brand new and needed way more training on the menu.

    Excellent salads and raw vegan sandwiches. I love their mushroom nori rolls. I believe this is an entirely gluten free facility. Sharon and her staff are kind and very creative. Everything that comes out of that kitchen is delicious.
