i ordered the tofu and spinach wrap and the green power smoothie. the guy who took my order was polite, friendly, and quick with recommendations. the smoothie was watery, not very cold and more like a juice than a smoothie. i prefer mine thicker, more like jamba juice. i had mine made with rice milk so i dont know how this affects the smoothie consistency. taste wise, it was DELICIOUS. i loved the flavour combination and was very pleased overall. the spinach wrap i waited to have til i got home. it took awhile longer than i expected for them to make it, but only a couple minutes more. its not like it took hours. doesnt seem like the place i would want to go and order 3 things if i am in a rush, though. the wrap was delicious when i finally had a bite. my only real complaint, other than smoothie consistency, was the price. my smoothie was like 5.75 and would have been a small/medium at any other place. my wrap was over 6, so my 2 items were 15.50 total. WOW! i will definately go again as a splurge next time i am visiting my friend in the city (his apt is right next door). but if i lived in the city, as much as i might want to, i couldnt afford to make this a regular stop.

I've eaten here for lunch 3x so far, and have thoroughly enjoyed the meatball and buffalo chicken sandwiches, and the hummus wrap. Everything is really very tasty and yummy and pretty reasonably priced. The staff is also very friendly. My only semi-negative, is that veganaise and daiya cheese, while maybe healthy in the broader vegan-lifestyle sense, they're not low fat, so don't think you're necessarily getting a "diet" meal. Remember, the terms "healthy" and "diet" can be quite subjective. Overall though, I recommend!

We ordered the Buffalo Chicken and Bacon Ranch sandwiches, a chicken quesadilla, along with a Butterfinger Shake and a doughnut. The sandwiches tasted good, but the bread on one of them was stale. The quesadilla was good and since it was over 2$ cheaper than the sandwiches it was a good deal. The shake was amazing, although I feel it should have been in the $4-$5 range! The doughnut was good, had lots of sugar but not the best texture it was really limp and didn't have much substance to it like a real doughnut. It also didn't really have a lot of taste, kind of bland. My girlfriend didn't like anything which is odd because she usually loves burgers and the "realistic" style vegan foods. She stated it seemed as if they were trying to hard to be gourmet, but didn't taste that way. I disagree, I think the flavors were right on and it was tasty! I think for $8.50 the sandwiches should come with a small salad or cut up fruits/veggies to make it seem like a complete meal. Nevertheless I was full after my shake and sandwich. The service was good, everyone seemed nice and enthusiastic about working there. Since this is a 10 min. walk from my house and right next door to my gym, I will be going back to try a few more items.

Being a vegan I am always trying to find a tasty new place for lunch - this hit the spot. If you are looking for a fast and amazing sandwich and a fantastic juice (I had the Thanksgiving sandwich and the Live Long and Green juice - yum!) this is the place to go. Even my meat eating friend who had the jerk Tofu thought it was great! The only thing I would have liked to see is a real seating area - there were just a few stools by the window - but the place is small so what can you do? Overall I would definitely make the hike across town to go there again!

I was excited to have this place open because I live right in the building, but the sandwiches are sub-par, nothing "healthy" there at all except for the juice. Seems like it's geared toward a younger vegan crowd that's looking to not spend much.

Very tasty sandwich. Used way too much veganaise however. Either way, i'll be going back to try everything on the menu.

As a local resident for over 20 years, I can comfortably say,Terri is a welcomed vegetarian newcomer to the neighborhood, serving really tasty vegan dishes at decent prices. I'll be back for sure. The staff was very helpful as well. Good luck Terri, you have my support.
