A little difficult to locate, but the people were so friendly, the space was so pleasant (I'm looking forward to dining outdoors when the weather is nicer), and the meal was great. I got smoked tofu tacos, which were delicious, and am looking forward to trying more items off the menu. Although it's not a vegetarian restaurant, there were several vegan dishes and many of them looked appetizing. I also enjoyed the chocolate tofu pie -- the same one that Bentley's carries.

This whole place is just lovely. Inside, outside, you can't really get a bad seat. My husband and I came for brunch. I ordered the GLBT sandwich (guac, tofu instead of bacon, lettuce, tomato) but unfortunately it came with mayo which was not mentioned on the menu. They remade it with no hassle though, and it was very good! Also got the chocolate tofu pie for dessert, which doesn't sound appetizing but was incredibly rich and yummy. They should change the name to "Chocolate Heaven Pie". I will definitely come back!

Only con: I feel like the vegan/vegetarian labeling could be a little clearer. Love that they made the effort though!
