Menu is a bit difficult to interpret. We waited on line for ten minutes, then learned that the" vegan" is that you can replace any cheese on any dish with Daiya brand vegan cheese, which we don't like. Would have been nice if the menu explained that. Food was oily, but we believe with experience we could find better choices.... More

My husband and I had dinner at Dharma's while visiting Capitola--it was kind of an impulse decision to eat there because we were looking for a healthy menu with lots of vegetarian/vegan choices. We liked the idea that they use mostly organic ingredients and that they had a lot of variety on the menu, including "burgers," sandwiches, Mexican dishes, pastas,... More

We had the pleasure of eating at Dharma's last week and it was just as good as I had remembered. Their kitchari is really nice, huge and delicious burritos, and this time we tried the Tempeh ruben on gluten free bread... It was wonderful and they have a nice little patio outside so you can enjoy some fresh air with... More

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.
