Leave your hemp fanny pack at home, vegans, because this place is clas$y (intentional use of dollar sign). Delicious food, but stick with the cooked stuff since the raw plates are small and heavy on the sprouts and lettuce.

My girlfriend, who is a vegetarian, turned me onto this place. For not being a vegetarian myself I really enjoy coming here for brunch. Their lentil cakes are awesome.

I took my wife, who is a vegetarian, to Candle 79 for her birthday. I am completely the opposite, loving as much beef as I can put my hands on. Not only was my wife very pleased, but I also loved the food! This is a great vegetarian option

I'm a regular here, and adore the food. So when it came time to have our wedding catered, it was a no-brainer. What a mistake. \r
First, the woman organizing asked me about the same things a minimum of three times, having no recollection

I'm usually not a big fan of vegeterian cuisine but great food coupled with the ambiance has got me to be a repeat customer. Great place for an intimate dinner.

This is absolutely the best place to take your non-vegetarian friends who squirm at the idea of a meal without meat. The Seitan Piccata in particular, is better than veal. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and always make excellent
