What’s New

Happy Customers

This place is great. Had a breakfast tofu sandwich and a Hyper Monkey smoothie. Both were excellent! I was so happy to come across this wonderful vegan place while visiting Boston!


This place is amazing. Best vegan burger I’ve had in Boston — the Cool Beans burger with their house cheese. Yummmmm I would recommend this to everyone. I also love their nachos and smoothies. A 10/10 for sure.
