Amaazing! Absolutely loved the Groundnut Stew and the coconut cream pie is the best on planet earth! Friendly, helpful service. Clean & cute place, outdoor seating too! Will come here every time in in Madison for sure! P.S. Exceptional array of vegan choices!!

Friendly staff. Delicious food...jackfruit quesadilla and groundnut stew, along with carrot cake with vegan cream cheese frosting in a mason jar and chocolate lava cake. They have a tasty drink called Drunken Earl that is made with earl gray tea and orange blossom lemonade. This was my first visit, but it won't be my last.

I am not vegan or even vegetarian, but I still love going here and so do my kids. The staff is helpful, the tea options and service are great, and food is delicious. My favorite is the jambalaya and cornbread.

As a vegan, I would love to support the only 99% vegan restaurant in town. Sadly, I can no longer go there after my last experience which was the worst. Even though I was never super happy with Green Owl, I thought I would give it another chance. I never liked the entries but just the sandwiches. However the "Chicken" Dijon had a really bad after taste. So bad that I wish it had been a Boca Chick-N patty instead. And the avocado/lime dressing, besides just looking gross was way too spicy. So I will have to go back and continue to eat at regular restaurants with vegan options. That shouldn't be the case but what other choice do I have if I want to eat out.

I had the TLT with the garlic and rosemary roasted red potatoes, my sister got the tofu scramble also with the potatoes and they were both phenomenal! Very tasty, both vegan, both FULL of flavor.. Amazing! Also got a bloody Mary - made by Amy... I drank it within minutes, very tasty! Overall a great experience. The staff was also very nice and kind. Cute quiet place, plenty of seating, clean, and smelled delicious inside. Also, try the green hot sauce!

Took the girlfriend here. They specifically cater to vegans and vegetarians, so if you're into that, this place is PERFECT. The decor is classy, the service is excellent, and the food is delicious. I can't imagine anything on the menu here not being amazing.

So many vegan options! But they are pricey, smaller portions, and not all are very tasty. Also, often a long wait to be served. For me, the first time I went could have been the last, but after three visits, I am satisfied and don't think I will return, unless I get a hankering for their vegan meatloaf (the best, most filling item on the menu as far as I can tell).
