Inside it is like a cool Berkeley cafe with orchids. Ordered the Chipotle Bean Burger, asked them to hold the bun because I'm on keto. They replaced the bread with delicious greens and tomatoes -- nice! Food and chai tea were both very good. My friend had the soup of the day and said she loved it. Wonderful, friendly staff with a lot of aloha spirit. It will be my new favorite place to go for a healthy meal.

The açaí bowls and bagels with cream cheese, avocado, tomato, and sprouts was so good. The only downside is because it’s all fresh service is slow...totally worth it if you have the time though.

We found it through OpenTable (but it does not give points as they have no reservations) and are glad we did! Sandwiches are only $7.50; and the acai bowls were amazing! We enjoyed it so much we ordered an extra sandwich to taste and share. Had the roasted veggie, macadamia nut pesto, and avocado sandwiches -- all were excellent!
