    I am a regular for the GF Mac 'n Cheese. I went yesterday and they were sold out of my favorite. I tried the sweet chili shrimp with brown rice and it was delicious and addictive. I am thinking about it now. Yum!

    Everything here is great. The staff is very open and honest about their menu and ingredients. And they have GF Mac and cheese, what more do you want?!

    Lovely staff. As a vegan who has to be gluten free, I wouldn't say they specialize in vegan. I had a raw chili--which was crunchy and bland and a vegetable medley--which reminded me of the frozen Central Market stuff; just steamed and bland. I'd go back though...if the offerings were expanded or modified. I'm glad to see so many others enjoy it tho!

    The food is delicious! I had the shrimp rice bowl with lemon, which came with a salad, and I had a side of the mixed greens (mustard, kale, and collards). All of it was delicious! I will definitely go back to try other dishes. :)

    Great, yummy, heathy food. What a find!! Nice folks running the place. The 3 owners choose to eat gf. They are in the process of moving down the street so you might want to check google. This is the kind of business you love to support, but the payoff is aWESOME food. I had turkey chili, the boys demolished the gf Mac and cheese and my hubby likes the gumbo.

    Very good though limited menu. Vegan, vegetarian, chicken and shrimps bowls with rice and salad. They are planning to expand. Not every thing is GF. Everything a I've tried has been very good. Everyone in party liked what they ordered, though not all are gluten intolerant.

    Mostly vegan menu, all organic menu. The owner knows about nutrition and they can accommodate food allergies. Veggie based dishes.

    Girl at the window is such a sweetheart, she brings a great vibe to the place. Cannot leave without trying the sweet potato pie.
