So much fun!! Food was so good. I’m not vegan so I’m usually picky about vegan food and this was incredible!! Service was great, everyone was very friendly and welcoming.

Food was bland and mostly frozen and/our microwaved it seemed. Manager and waiter didn’t deny this which was odd. Nachos, Mexican bowl, and fried chicken mushroom burger were terrible. The mushroom burger was like eating pieces of rubber, very tough. Very loud, not great service either, waited for 20-30 minutes to see our waiter after getting food and wanting to complain, walked up to another staff instead. They were pretty busy I’ll give them that. Manager gave us half off at least, they were pretty nice about it. Not at all what we expected for an organic vegan restaurant, or from the hype about this chain. Sun Cafe in studio city is what they should aspire to be.

Every time I come here, I enjoy it just a little bit more. I will admit that at first I was not sure about it. I am an omnivore, but leave here always feeling good. I don't feel their menu restricts me in any way. Furthermore, for what it is, it is reasonably priced!

Definitely disappointed in this location. I spoke highly of this restaurant to my friends visiting from out of town and we decided to try this Venice location since it was closer to where they were staying. Not only were the visuals and decor less appealing than the dtla location, but the food was definitely interesting. It was dinela so we ordered from the set menu and we specifically chose some food items based on the fact that it contained arugula only to receive our prepared food with spinach substituted instead. It would have been nice for our waitress to have made us known of this substitute while we were ordering. Maybe she didn’t even know? The food was so so. Again, disappointed. Would not go to again nor recommend this location.

GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR FIVE-5 LADIES THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT AND WHO ARE REAL MEAT EATERS. EVERYONE IN THE RESTAURANT MADE THEIR EXPERIENCE SPECIAL WITH PATIENCE AND SUGGESTIONS FOR ITEMS ON THE MENU THAT THEY MIGHT ENJOY. ALL MEMBERS IN MY PARTY WERE EXTREMELY SATISFIED WITH EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE FOOD (IT WAS DELICIOUS). THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS CHALLENGING EXPERIENCE A GREAT ONE FOR ALL OF US.

Lisa, our server was lovely. Just the right amount of attention. Food was good and while I did not have it, the chicken fried sandwich is apparently delicious - no real chicken, just fried like one. My breakfast partner ordered it and if he had been hungrier, would have had a second one. Their turmeric latte is wonderful as well - I ordered mine with oat milk since I am allergic to nuts. I would definitely come back.
