We went for lunch after a long hike and were pleased with the vegan options. A super tasty vegan cheese burger washed down with a huge vegan extra thick milkshake! Service was good and there was very little wait time! Worth the visit

This restaurant was walking distance from our hotel. It was a small place, and busy. The food was delicious, and the service was great. We would definitely visit again.

The waitress was really kind and the burgers were delicious. We also tried one of the shakes which I can recommend too.
