Vegan, organic, gluten free restaurant with cozy indoor and outdoor patio seating. I have eaten here at least 10 times and enjoy the waffle with fruit, french bread pizza, grilled cheese, cauliflower meatball pizza, meatball sandwich, pineapple rice, sweet potato fries and sushi. All the baked goods are delicious but, I especially enjoy the banana bread, carrot cake, and cinnamon roll. I was told by a staff person that the oats and flours they use are certified gluten free. They have a day menu , evening menu and brunch menu (Sat. and Sun.) Check menus before you go and go early in the day for best selection of baked goods.
The imperial rolls here are truly amazing! Ordered the cauliflower meatball pizza last time and it was ok. The desserts all look amazing as well (haven’t tried them). My main reason for giving 4 stars is price...for what it is, prices are very high. I wish they had smaller pieces of cake for less because $9 doesn’t seem worth it.
The staff was helpful and checked ingredients for me. However, for a place that bills themselves as gf I was surprised how little knowledge staff had about celiac disease. Really delicious baked goods. Pricey but a fun splurge once in a while.
I ate here once, really enjoyed it, but was sick afterwards. When I called the person to ask about the food, she said she did not know if their flours are certified gluten-free. She seemed to have other things on her mind, "we have lots of people here with 'celiac's' and they never have a problem." So, I'm taking this to be another restaurant that advertises GF in order to get the crowd in.
MUST TRY! Hands down the BEST GF desserts! The nachos were pretty amazing too. Cute little place, amazing service and options that have their own culinary flare! Dessert was so good...we took extra back to our hotel for breakfast the next morning! See you again upon our return to Philly!!!
The only reason this place gets 4 stars is because the prices are ridiculous!!! The meals are decent size but if you want to order a few things or even get a dessert ($8-9 for everything) it will be pricey. Had the nachos which were amazing, the quinoa pancakes which were a little sweet but still good. I wouldn’t recommend the mushroom bacon. Also got a chocolate tart for take away which was very good but weirdly salty? Overall good place but can’t be a regular based on price
Come for brunch asap! We had the Monday brunch menu - not sure if it's the same as the weekend brunch. The food is DELICIOUS! The restaurant is very charming and decorated with beautiful plants, flowers and even pineapples. The service is good - the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. However, when crowded some minor slip ups may happen (i.e. forgotten almond milk for coffee). You can say it's pricey but you get super high quality ingredients and decent portion sizes, so it's the you get what you pay for. I feel it's worth it. I wish this place was near me because I would frequent it at least a few times a week. Highly recommended and I'm hoping to come back while I'm still in Philly. What we had and loved: Breakfast tacos Waffle club sandwich Breakfast bread Iced coffee with almond milk & coconut sugar (if the season permits, I strongly recommend over hot coffee). Avocado toast Waffle with chocolate & maple syrup Apple juice Happiness juice
I think almost everything here is truly delicious. Like I crave it when I'm not there. My only complaint is occasionally signs are wrong about ingredients and it's fine if you're avoiding gluten bc nothing here (almost) has it but if you have a lesser-known sensitivity you might be told just to skip a bunch of stuff cause they're worried about making a mistake. In terms of taste, 5 stars.
I give it four stars because the most important thing for these ratings is to show the place has safe food to eat, which it certainly does. However, the food we had didn't taste very good, probably because of the many restrictions there (it is all vegan, gf, other things I can't remember). I have a young child with celiac--she had one bite of the Mac and cheese and wouldn't eat any more. I didn't like it very much myself when I tried a bite, but it was OK. that said, they had some other foods like pad Thai which looked like it would be pretty tasty.
The place is cute and very popular although the procedures and menu are a bit confusing. Grab a seat first, select what you want from fridge and sandwich case, then order at the counter. Then grab utensils, napkins and water. They will bring you any food that needs to be heated. Prices are high. $51 for 4 people to get a snack and one drink to share. Portions are likewise tiny. Chiang Mai tea-juice with pineapple and lime was very refreshing and not too sweet. Mushroom pizza crust was good but the pizza itself was unremarkable, not least because it was made earlier and only briefly reheated. They were out of several items. Beet burger and pesto sandwiches were good but nothing special. Fresh roll was unexpectedly spicy but yummy.
AMAZING. I went here with my dad and sister on the 4th of July because there was absolutely nothing GF to eat on the parkway. I'm so glad I went. I got the curried chickpea salad and my dad got the pad Thai salad (both kale salads) and my sister got a smoothie. It was pretty expensive but it was so nice to be able to go somewhere without being concerned about cross contamination or trying to find something GF and vegetarian. (It is byob and they don't even allow customers to bring beer - that is how serious they are about being completely GF). I also had a macaroon which was incredible. The staff was so friendly and very helpful. I will definitely be back if my wallet allows it.
