    Food is okay, but really not so spectacular. Fresh, elegantly presented—but uninspired without interesting flavors or unexpected additions. Basically, it's chopped vegetables on rice with a bit of vaguely gingery sauce. The Golden Spice Latte tastes like something you'd have to drink if you lost a bet. It's A frothy concoction of throat-burning spices and, you guessed it, not much flavor. There's also a humorous disconnect between the friendly signage in the surly staff. Maybe I got there at the end of the lunch rush and they were all grumpy and exhausted — but it didn't really feel like they were serving up peace.

    Terrific place for gluten free health food. Staff is well informed, friendly & helpful. And if you still want something a bit sweet, there are plenty of smoothie options to satisfy the craving.

    Love the food! Great service. Just one less star because of the restricted hours. I hope they can open again on all evenings!
