Review: I had the ginger tea, miso soup, tofu crusts with BBQ, broccoli & spinach with mustard sauce, beer-battered onion rings, cornbread, house bread, my daughter's spaghetti, and carrot cake.

Everything was just perfect. The service was outstanding. The atmosphere was wonderful, nice music and lighting.

We drove 1.25 hours to get there, but it was well worth it!

Highly recommend it. And you can shop at the New Pioneer Coop after the meal, which is right across the street

red avocado was wonderful! very good food, however, the portion sizes were very small. i had the sailor's platter which gave a good sample of what the restaurant had to offer. the food was incerdubly tasty and the syrup on my french toast was savory and delicious. the crepe i had was also very good.
my boyfriend had the mushroom crepe which was very tasty and also incredibly good! great food, small portions, a gem for those that are vegan in iowa!
