It's very nicely decorated inside, the food was great, and the people working were very friendly. I'd definitely go back!

I also discovered the Treehouse in Farmington. I always thought it was just for potlucks, but turns out they have a restaurant!

22906 Mooney St
Farmington, MI 48336
(248) 473-0624

I passed up Mooney St. a million times during rush hour-so in case you aren't familiar with the area-it's by a Zap Zone. They had a good selection of other things besides just food-fruits and vegetables, and supplements (I think they were supplements-didn't get a chance to look because I got there kind of late) Red Pepper's is more contemporary, this place is going more for the spiritual, hippy (I use that term in the best way possible lol) vibe...if you are a conservative, close-minded or other type of person with definite beliefs-you may not want to go here....they have certain beliefs and they are very open about them. I'm not the type of person who has a problem with listening to other people's viewpoints-but I know a lot of people do! So, if you think you can handle it, then by all means go visit-the smoothie I had was very good!

Ok,well packing tape is here...back to moving!!!

Thanks! Glad the blog has been helpful for you! I have not been to Magdalena's because it's a bit of a drive for me, but if I am ever out that way I definitely will check it out!
