Always appreciate the warm welcome and hospitality. We stuck with our old favorites this time as we have been missing the Asian flavors of Jujube in our new home town. Susie has curated not only a unique and delightfully delicious menu but also a culture of genuine community that shows in the atmosphere and service. Caring and smiling staff seem to enjoy the experience as much as the patrons. Refreshing to see!

The place is very well appointed, cool vibe for sure. Very loud at brunch, but not terrible. The food was outstanding. We had the brisket hash, smoked salmon Benedict and Belgian waffles. All were absolutely delicious and nice portion size. Price was reasonable for the quality and portion size. Definitely a do over when I come back to town.

Excellent vegan food experience in downtown Raleigh. The shrimp starter was a highlight! The cannabis cocktail was also quite pleasant. Highly recommend.
