I've been here only once and recall enjoying it quite a bit! I got a sandwich of some kind that came with a bowl of soup and a small quinoa/kale salad. Everything was delicious. I recall they had some vegan options for dessert too.
I can't believe there aren't more reviews of this place! It is absolutely, hands down the best vegan food you can get ANYWHERE and definitely the best in Palm Springs. The menu has a wide variety of burgers, sandwiches and bowls such as bacon cheeseburger, thai meatball bowl, Italian meatball sub, baja tacos, etc. The appetizers are amazing, especially the veggie chicken wings. Their drinks are even a real treat! You can get refillable watermelon juice, lavendar lemonade or hibiscus iced tea. The quality of the food is incredible and they have a dog-friendly patio too.
Just to be clear, although this is in a health food store, it's a full, sit down cafe. They have plenty of seating and the menu is ENORMOUS. You could bring anyone here and they would find something to eat. There is all day breakfast, burgers, pastas, asian dishes, wraps, salads, a huge juice and smoothie menu. Where else in the Coachella Valley can you finally get a vegan date shake?! The place is vegetarian not vegan, so beware that the omlettes, etc. on the all day breakfast menu are real eggs. But there are LOTS AND LOTS of vegan options. The spicy "chicken" wrap is amazing.
We LOVED this place! The gelato was so creamy. Definitely the best vegan gelato we've had. Wish we had time to go back for a second visit!
The food here was some of the best we've had on vacation - ever! A must stop for vegetarians in Tampa. For $8, you get a huge portion of your choice of veggie meat (they have about 5 different kinds), and your choice of side (rice and beans, fried greens, I forget what the others were), and a bunch of plantains. But it's the quality of the food that blew me away, it was just sincerely delicious.
The places is a small take-out place, although they do have a table outside with some chairs if you want to stick around to eat.
We literally stumbled upon this place while walking up to Chicago Diner for lunch, and were so impressed by the menu options that we went in for a "pre-lunch". We got the "fish" tacos and "fish sandwich". Both were good and fresh tasting, although not exactly fish-like. Still, I'd recommend the place. They have a pretty large and very well-priced menu. Lots of different tacos and burritos and they have breakfast too.
Absolutely unbelievable. My non-vegan father wouldn't stop raving about the donuts to our family all week. These donuts are truly to die for and definitely worth making a trip to vegas for.
I thought the food was fairly good, but they charge $1 extra to make any meal vegan instead of vegetarian which isn't cool.
It was nice to be able to get a cool vegan ice cream to eat on a hot day, and there was a good selection of flavours. The texture of the ice cream itself though was decent but not the best I've had. I wonder if getting some ice cream from Viva Vegan would have been better!
We thought the food all tasted pretty good, and it was a nice restaurant inside. It wasn't the greatest place we've ever been to, but we enjoyed it and would go back again. It's a nice option for a vegetarian restaurant in that part of town. We did the buffet and probably wouldn't do it again. It looked like they had a lot more interesting, mock meat dishes compared to the simpler dishes that were included in the buffet.
We really enjoyed taking advantage of the all you can eat menu! All the food was pretty good quality and it came out pretty fast! We went back a second time on a trip that was only 4 nights. The lemon fish and the wonton soup were our favourite dishes. The sushi was also excellent.
