“Best food ever. Best & friendliest staff ever. I’m not saying that just because it’s a vegan place…they really are incredible. If I could go there every day I would totally do it.”

“Absolutely amazing food experience. Perfect spot for vegan foodies, but also just for everyone to enjoy. Good service! Definitely order the spicy Cauli Wings, they are the best. Would recommend 10/10.”

“I love coming here for dinner or picking up a take away. Poutine is the standout but other favourites include the fried Brussel sprouts, nachos, chicken schnitzel and a chocolate milkshake.”
