Restaurant Review



One of four restaurants in the region, they serve up well prepared, healthy, vegetarian foods with international flavors from India, Mexico, Malaysia, and Italy, at a reasonable price.

The decor is plain, contemporary, in a cafeteria style setting. The menu is labeled to assist vegan's and non- vegetarians in choosing their order. The menu labels identifies dishes that contain dairy, casein, whey protein, and eggs.

They serve up a full variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, rice and noodles, and full dinner entrees.

The popular entrees are:
Celestial Tofu with battered soft bean curd, sun-dried tomato, tender seitan and broccoli-rabe and jalapeno in a light tomato-sage sauce; the Tapestry Embrace with grilled marinated seitan filet and fresh shiitake mushroom in a sweet teriyaki sauce, fresh zucchini and yellow squash with a banana-leaf cone of asian sticky rice; and the Taste of Curry with squash, cauliflower, okra, water chestnuts new potato and delicate tofu puffs in a spicy malaysian curry sauce on wheat basket.

Save room for dessert. Try the Banana Bliss with fresh sliced bananas, banana custard and non-dairy whipped cream in a graham-cracker crust; or the Key Lime High, their vegan version of the classic Key West dessert.

Reservations are taken only for parties of eight or more.
