$10 for a latte is ridiculous./ Saffron add ginger..
and $14 for a burrito /potatoes is also a bit over priced..

I am excited to eat vegan food but it’s so sad that I feel restaurants are making it impossible to eat out and stay healthy!

This restaurant used to be PACKED when it first opened and for a few years - but lately everyone I know who used to want to meet here for business breakfast have all said the same thing.. $30 for breakfast a person (after tip) is not affordable!

So sad we won’t be frequenting your establishment.

Fantastic food! The server we had forgot about two of our orders and was rude about us asking to see a menu again. He was also passive aggressive when he put down the check. Would have been 5 stars if the service was better.

We were there on a Sunday at brunch. Service is very friendly but drinks were forgotten and server was very busy so hard to get his attention. But food is always delicious!

Everyone enjoyed their meal immensely. Great atmosphere and service. The prices are a bit elevated for the amount of food. There were 4 of us. We had one appetizer and we each ordered an entree. Only 2 alcoholic drinks (2 beers). The cost was $180 after tip. Basically $45 per person. Just need to know that it will be a great experience, but be prepared to pay $40-50 per person.

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.
