YUMMY – Food is amazing, a lot of vegetarian and vegan food. Their vegan pies are out of this world!

Great Food. Great Price. – Very fresh food. I always enjoy going to a restaurant where a chef really cares about the dishes he serves. Our food was absolutely perfect and well worth the wait. This place is typically filled with college kids, the emo-hipster liberal, no personality type, but the day we went there were not many people.

vegan/vegetarian friendly – i love going here. the people are very friendly and the service is great. they have the most amazing vegan ceaser grilled tofu salad which is what i always get. maybe one day ill venture out of the norm and try something new.

Good vegetarian food – Enjoyed this restaurant recently for lunch. My sandwich was served with wonderful sweet potato fries and a salad made with leaf lettuce - not that iceberg stuff. Look forward to going back.

A hip, veggie cafe that will leave your mouth watering for more. – The Scene
Formerly the Bidder's Suite, this quasi-basement was always charming but never more than since Ipanema took over. They've lightened up the whole room with a burnished wood tone, which is a vast improvement. The spot has always attracted urban cool-cats, but now the veggie fare draws 'em from all around. If you want romance, it's not that kind of place. But it will impress you with its unique aura and attention to the food. Plus, it's a hip place so you'll get some credit there as well.

The Food
The stuffed portobello cap with artichokes, pine nuts, grape tomatoes and fresh mozzarella pleases and the sweet potato fries are no taste bud duds. The daily chalkboard menu and generous portions will always bring you back. Good for vegetarians, veggie-lovers and, yes, there are a couple meat dishes usually, so feel free to take anyone.

Veggie Goodness – Had delicious, very fresh sandwiches here--- sooo yummy. And the sweet potato fries rock. Chilled atmosphere, great service, always changing "chalkboard" menu with many appetizing choices.

no more smoke – they changed their policy. No smoking until 10 pm. Also some brand new entrees and a new paint job

check it out!
