“Amazing experience! My boyfriend and I were visiting Ohio from Buffalo NY and I was thrilled to find a vegan restaurant so close to where we were staying. We got the Purple Haze smoothie and it was so delicious that we had to get another smoothie to-go after we ate our meals. The mushroom latte was to die for, probably the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had. Our breakfast was incredible and the staff was so friendly. I will definitely be returning whenever I’m in town again. Can’t recommend this place enough.” – Jillian B.
