This ornate Greek restaurant serves tantalizing gyros and salads with a generous helping of feta cheese. The most sought-after item is the lamb souvlaki: a juicy meat skewer with rice and salad. The food served at this locale is healthy but not too healthy, a nice break from steamed broccoli.

Electric Beet Juice Co

Serving vegan comfort food in a relaxed environment, this is the perfect spot for anyone to cleanse their palate of greasy, fatty foods. The rotating menu keeps items fresh and local.

As an added benefit, Wild Oat can be seen right out our window at Intellitonic.
