The Green Owl Cafe


“First--I am not vegan or a vegetarian; I love meat as much as the next person. Prior to my first  visit, I was quite hesitant as you can imagine but decided to give it a shot. And...this place is AMAZING! A perfect and much needed restaurant for Madison. Everything I've tried so far has been delicious. (I've gone back quite a few times). My favorite dishes are the Groundnut Stew, the raw taco platter, and the crabby cakes. My suggestion: never leave without ordering a slice of pure heaven cheesecake/dessert. It makes me feel better about myself since it's vegan. ;) I usually dine on week nights since they're not as busy. Service is always pleasant and courteous. Needless to say, I will be returning for more vegan goodness.” — B. X.




“Graze has over time become my favorite restaurant in Madison. Not just for the delicious food, but for the exceptional service and ambiance. I started going to graze just for lunch/brunch but after a while I figured I  would try dinner. Their drink menu is superb, I love how they use fresh herbs and update it regularly. They also update their dinner menu a few times a year so it's fun to try what's new. I've never been disappointed after eating here. I appreciate their use of local ingredients and love that they support Wisconsin farmers. I highly recommend it!! (Oh, and best cheese curds in madison...yep I went there!)” — Nicole K.
