Review: “One of my favorite restaurants to go to for a clean and healthy meal. In addition to the location, I love that they have outside seating and plenty of seating inside. I have never had to wait. The customer service has always been great and my most recent waiter, Zuri, was awesome and super helpful with recommendations and ensuring that we enjoyed our meal. I usually always order the spaghetti squash casserole, and this time I added shrimp, which was a nice touch. We also ordered the hummus for the appetizers. The portions for everything are so filling. They also have so many great refreshing drink options, and I usually get the ginger one. I definitely recommend a visit- it’s a great spot to have lunch or dinner with friends, family, or colleagues. The best part is that it’s vegan friendly, so there are A LOT of good options for everyone." - Fumi B.
