This cozy, welcoming, vegan and gluten-free bistro gives a nod to African American culture through artwork, relaxing R&B music, and even a powerful quote from Lauryn Hill’s “Tell Him” printed on a wall.


Owner Brennah Lambert, a Black, twentysomething, queer woman, embraces diversity at this health-focused restaurant that started as a catering service in 2018. The brick-and-mortar location opened in 2021, serving dishes for dine-in and to-go. Catering is still available.

Whether you’re vegan or not, many dishes will leave you wondering how it’s all plant-based. Appetizers include chipotle-lime and barbecue cauliflower wings; an eggplant terrine made with almond ricotta; and romesco or Parm “meatballs,” made with Beyond Meat. Standout entrées include the Caesar salad, made with cashew Parmesan and house-made dressing; coconut-curry noodles packed with veggies and tofu; and birria-style tacos, crafted with “meaty” stewed jackfruit, vegan mozzarella and a consommé dipping sauce. Sweet and savory options fill the brunch menu, like lemon-poppy seed or strawberry-cheesecake pancakes, as well as tacos and bowls made with tofu or chickpea scramble.


Free street parking fills up fast; there’s additional availability in a nearby lot.
