Vegan | Buffalo, Western New York

When we first started serving food in 2016, we just wanted to show people that plant-based food could be more than healthy, but a meal that is satisfying and inspired. The entirely plant-based brunch and dinner menus have options that will be adored by all. Being in Buffalo, we have put our stamp on local favorites, while also pairing west + east coast flavors for a unique menu right in our hometown. We wanted to create a space that was charmingly vintage, while still fresh and modern. A space that you'll want to come back to, again and again, to meet friends on the weekends. More
