Both lemons and limes contain very high amounts of vitamin C. Incidentally, Green Cuisine makes a delightful lemon cheesecake as well […]

Not a vegan or a vegetarian, but I enjoy nearly every local restaurant, and this one is no exception. Great place for lunch, buffet style eatery which is great for taking what you need without wasting much/anything. Good noodles, soup and salad. Very good if you're just simply looking for a light meal and you're not vegan/veg.

Used to be a vegan/vegetarian years ago. Finding this place by accident when my grandma wanted to get coffee. Assortment of food looked great, had a rasberry "cheesecake." Will go back again with my mom who enjoys vegan cooking. Lots of space too, like 2 different areas for tables, and outdoor tables.
