“What a great place to eat. I love that they have so many vegan and vegetarian offerings. Their current seasonal pizza is the butternut squash one and it’s to die for. Our lovely server, Kaylee offered us to try it with lemon and it was delicious. I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cozy healthy fall dish to enjoy. It was a very nice environment as well with the kitchen almost fully exposed.” – Everest H.

Vegetarian, Vegan, Fruitarian
“Place is awesome. Vegan food galore and the menu is pretty unique. 100% plant-based. I don’t know why this hasn’t been coming up when we search for vegan food in Denver but I’m glad we found it now. Also glad we don’t live too close to it cause they would get way too much of my money. The drinks were great and the bartender really took time on them. Seems like they go all out on everything. The food was amazing and I can’t wait to come back and try some other items. The atmosphere is dope too. All around great experience.” – Cody P.
