What are the top three items on the menu?
- Whobetta Burger
- Can’t believe it’s a Pizza puff

“The Whobetta Burger will amaze you. People cant believe that they are not eating meat. We have people that actually come back every single day for the burger. It’s actually quite addictive after the first bite, Boasts Chandler.
“The pizza puff almost didn’t make the menu. I felt like it was gonna be too hard for the staff to make. The day before the grand opening I decided to add it to the menu. We have sold 12,000 pizza puff’s since adding it to the menu. As far as popularity it’s neck and neck with the Whobetta burger,” the artful cook added.
How has it been juggling your newborn and a new business?
It’s amazing. She’s the greatest thing that ever happened to me. I’m so inspired to teach her about our vegetarian lifestyle. I have the best support ever, my husband, my mom and dad, and my mother-in-law are so amazing.
The hardest part was being pregnant though, trying to open the restaurant while serving block-long lines. I would do it all over again if I had to.
What is one misconception people have about your restaurant?
The misconception that people have is that our restaurant is only for vegans. It’s definitely not. We consider ourselves a restaurant for flexitarians. A flexitarian is a person that’s transitioning into the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. Our mission is to shift the culture around being vegan.
