4.5 out of 5 stars I had the burrito with beans, rice and eggplant (Mediteraneo) today. It was tasty and healthy since I had them leave off the cheese. Several vegan options are available if you leave off cheese and/or yogurt. The service was friendly and quick. The best vegan option on College Ave (esp. if you have dessert at Nabolom Bakery after). Preferable to Baja Fresh, where the burrito tortillas contain milk. greg

4 out of 5 stars Mixed restaurant w/ decent-sized vegan burritos in an informal and bright interior setting, across from Rialto Elmwood Theater. Order at the counter, wait for prep, take to table. Fresh salsas, lime and jalapenos at the salsa bar accompany complementary chips. (fresh, crunchy, not oily) All beans/rice are vegan. My bean & rice burrito w/ guac was tasty & filling. Other interesting options avail Vegan Living
