Every time I go to the Santa Cruz area, I eat at Dharma's. Food is vegetarian and fresh and folks are friendly.

I have been meeting friends at this restaurant. The food is fresh and you certainly get plenty of food. It is a very casual restaurant. You place your order, pay and then pick up your food when they call your name. If you want table service, it is not at this restaurant. The last couple of times, I have ordered... More

I would have given Dharma's 5 stars, but the tables aren't great, just cafeteria style, and I only had a few things on the menu. But they offer gluten free pizza, as well as a large menu that suits my eating habits. I wanted to order everything. The fake bacon BLT, the hot dog with sauerkraut (I did order that... More

It was THE worst vegan food I've had. My husband both ordered different type of scrambled tofu for breakfast. He ordered Tofu Ranchero and he couldn't even touch his after seeing it on the plate. I ordered Curry Tofu and it was literally a big pile of mushy tofu with curry sauce and the other half of plate with potatoes.... More

If you like to order your own food and be responsible for it, this might be suitable for you. I enjoy being catered when im out and I love to indulge on being assisted when dining. The environment is light and the walls are filled with fabulous artworks, although the general decor is a bit out dated. It seems the... More

In a town known for its many outstanding breakfast and lunch restaurants Dharma's is as good as any. Last week I ordered the breakfast burrito for the first time. It was outstanding and huge! I took half home to my wife. Dharma's is a vegetarian restaurant popular with both vegetarians and non-vegetarians, of which I am the latter.

I've been a customer since Dharma's opened in 1981. The restaurant is 95% vegan, mostly organic, and they have a gluten-free menu. They offer basic vegetarian food for children such as mac n' cheese, pasta, or pizza and these can be made vegan or gluten-free. The atmosphere is casual, clean, low key, and friendly. I have traveled all over the... More

Hard to rate as there so many variables. The menu selection for those wanting vegetarian/vegan is huge. We went for breakfast, and as we were ordering at the register, my husband had a few questions about the pancake ingredients, and voile - the man at the register went to a card right there and read the ingredients! Very nice. And... More

Stopped here on the start of a birthday weekend trip. We were extremely impressed by the huge size of the menu and the vast variety of options. Our dishes were excellent. Portion sizes were huge and we wished we had split. All of the vegetables were fresh and well seasoned. Will definitely come back if we are in the area... More

Made our annual trip to Dharma's and this time enjoyed the pesto scramble for breakfast. If you didn't better, you'd swear that the tofu was really scrambled eggs. The dish is WAY too rich for one person; be prepared to share!
