Love it

The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is spot-on. You should try everything at least once. The staff are wonderful....for the most part.

We picked up food to take back to our hotel. The portions were a great size- esp the black bean and rice dish. We like to eat healthy and this was great. Folks working were nice too.

This small café serves soups and pastries made from scratch and local ingredients. Everything we ate was delicious, staff was friendly, prices very reasonable.

There is no place like Bowl of Good!! Food is delicious and fresh. It's a good place to support local growers. Adjacent to the Cafe is a gift shop that has hand made items from third world countries. A great way to support third world countries..

Nothing special but the offerings are different and amazingly fresh. I had the lentil soup with citrus resulting in a kind of sweet taste. Followed by a bowel of Nigerian chicken stew. Both wonderful. First visit and look forward to next! Affordable too I hope to come to one of their Int'l theme meals

We visited this place for dinner one night, and we ordered an entree each. The food was nice, light, and flavorful. However, the portions were very small and expensive. The service was good, but I wouldn't visit for dinner again.

One of my favorite places to eat in Harrisonburg! It's a great place to go if family or friends need to eat gluten free or prefer vegetarian. The Bangkok Bowl is one of my favorites! We even grab some soup to go for another meal during the week.

We were passing through Harrisonburg on our way to Florida and this looked like a healthy choice. We probably should have dined at the restaurant, but with two kids we decided to get takeout and eat at our hotel. Not the best idea. This place thrives on the idea of "fresh" and their takeout was less than that. Had the... More

The menu goes beyond the norm in offering healthy, organic, fresh, locally grown foods- just about the only one of its kind in Harrisonburg. The wait staff is very helpful and friendly, and we all love going there

We have been here numerous times since this is my wife's favorite lunch spot in Harrisonburg. I like the noodle dishes that have meat. The only problem is that most dishes are vegetarian and heavy on beans - I am not a beaner. I get one dish (Thai) almost every time. I give the place 4 stars and my wife... More
