We appreciate your continual support from the Farmers Markets in 2015 + the start of the little blue vegan shack in 2016 +  the new location we acquired in 2017!


There has been such outstanding feedback and we are so happy that people understand that home grown may not be able to provide quantity, but we will never sacrifice quality.

As a husband + wife team, we strive to provide hours that still allows us to keep our family balanced and the customer satisfied. We are not absentee-owners and take pride in everything we do. With our growth and expansion, we learn a little more each day about owning a restaurant--and it's tough! Our intent is to remain intentional in our actions + words. We hope that you feel the love as soon as you enter this environment we worked tirelessly to bring to Nashville and its visitors. 

Our goal is to be a Nashville staple that provides exceptional food that just happens to be vegan!
