The best way to see the wide variety of our vegetarian and vegan options is to peruse our menu.

Our Açaí Bowl and Bittersweet Salad are good examples of these.

It's super super premium, fresh, strong, never bitter or overroasted. We use George Howell Coffee out of the Boston area, and recently have been brewing a lot of Strongtree Coffee out of Gainesville. They roast to order and it's all organic.
12. You feature kimchi, as part of the menu and in take-out jars. Can you explain what kimchi is and how it fits into the menu?
