Vegetarian fast-food with a drive-thru

A vegetarian fast food take-out that holds it own nestled among an array of fast food joints within a two-block area on Lake Avenue. Soy is popular here as a filling for their many tasty burgers, burritos, pizzas, chili dogs, and tacos, and they use crisp and fresh clover sprouts in their sandwiches. There are four tables outdoors for your quick meal that can be topped off with one of their popular shakes. They even serve a breakfast burrito to start your day. Vegans will want to pass on the soy cheese that contains casein.

It doesn't look like much (just a walk-up/ drive-thru with a few tables outside) but it is great! A wide variety of mostly vegan fair with some vegetarian food as their cheese substitute is not vegan. But you don't have to get the cheese. The "chicken" nuggets are pretty good, as are the air fries although you occasionally get a few fries that were baked a little too much. The burger fixins are always fresh and good, too. The Philly cheese steak sandwich is AWESOME- hands down my favorite item there. The helpings are good-sized and you really gotta go back multiple times to try different stuff. They have good soy ice cream cones and shakes, too! A must for veg visitors or LA residents.

I really liked the place as a veggie, but it seems a lot harder to get things there now that I am a vegan. The food is excellent and all vegetarian, the only problem I have with the place is that in some ways it almost seems like they have lost sight of the "health" part of their name, their staff seems to not be sure what is even featured on the menu or what the items have in them. But very good food, and quick service, and at least the person working has always answered my many inquiries with a smile.
