Always delicious with quality ingredients. Some nights there are live music performing, which is fun. Parking is easy cross the street in a parking lot. Reservation is recommended.

After being at this location for quite a long time, this place has kept with the times, while keeping it's original vibe. We had Sunday Brunch and music provided by a delightful folk singer (apologies not know name:-) All I can say is "pancakes." It is Sunday and brunch so I splurged. Highly recommend Banana selection.

I've eaten here many times and always had a great meal. I love the vegetarian options, but the menu has something for everyone. Can't go wrong with brunch, lunch or dinner. Service is also consistently good. Helps to make a reservation on weekends. Nice live entertainment.

Varied menu including vegetarian options. I had a great soft shell crab special. Good beer and wine by the glass selection as well as cocktails. Friendly service. We arrive at 5:30 without a reservation and were seated quickly. The restaurant was full half way through our meal and they do take reservations via open table so I'd recommend that.

The Irregardless Cafe has been the go-to place for vegetarians and Raleighites for decades...and it still is. Innovative cuisine that appeals offers great variety, friendly and professional table service and nightly music make for a great dining experience. And, Arthur Gordon has been able to keep the prices reasonable. A can't miss choice.

This was the quaintest restaurant...not in size...but in charm. The location is perfect right at the start of the city in a little neighborhood. Great place to eat outside. Food was delicious! Mojitos were great. I will certainly return when/if I'm back in Raleigh.
