About Us

Our menu is 100% vegan and does not contain any dairy, egg or nuts. Everything is gluten-free with the exception of our pita, which can be substituted with a cabbage leaf wrap. Our produce is all organic and locally sourced assuring only the highest quality ingredients. All of our food is prepared fresh daily using traditional middle-eastern recipes with a healthy twist. Furthermore, our entire menu has been blessed and curated by our holistic health coach, Gina Ragnone.

Oh, and everything is kosher except for our hours.

We know where our local and organic produce is coming from since we work  directly with the suppliers. We also visit Farmer's Markets weekly where we get produce from the farmers themselves and build relationships to ensure our produce is responsibly farmed. No chemicals, no preservatives, no GMOs.
