This place is excellent. The food is outstanding, and the servers are the best in town by a long shot. Vegan options are abundant and clearly labeled. The space itself is casual, open, and vibrant.

We ate here twice. We had a three vegan cheese appetizer that was their daily special. The cheeses were interesting and I think they would taste familiar even to folks who eat cheese. The Bahn Mi didn't taste like a traditional Bahn mi, but it was a very good wrap. The Low Country Rollups had a smart combination of flavors including some sort of tahini dressing that I'd be happy drinking a glass of. The Omega Hempnut Burger was one of the best veggie burgers I've ever had, and they even make the buns themselves.

Can you guys open a location in Minneapolis, please?

We ate here three times, and everything was great. I had a Cuban Tempeh sandwich for lunch, the risotto for dinner, and the blue plate special for brunch. I particularly enjoyed the sandwich, the crispy wonton appetizer, and the jalapeno onion fries.

We also tried the Mayan Chocolate Poundcake, which was good, but the chocolate cake at French Broad Chocolate Lounge a few blocks away was better.
