The healthiest food in Harrisonburg

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 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

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

Their food is very fresh and tasty, but they are quite a distance out. They closed down the location on Port Republic, and that's the one I liked best. They are always nice, prices decent, food fresh and delicious. :)

I've been enjoying the food at A Bowl of Good for several years now, and I think it's one of the best kept secrets in Harrisonburg. The owners of this small cafe buy as much of their produce as they can from local farms. Food is always fresh, and for a small place, they manage to have something for every... More

We really enjoyed our lunch at this unusual restaurant. FRESH organic food was offered in many varieties! We had a wonderful black bean taco salad and a hearty soup accompanied by good, rich bread and butter- and there were many other tempting dishes to choose from. We also had a delicious fresh fruit dessert. All the food was real, a... More

Harrisonburg is not the center of anyone's culinary universe. This restaurant is trying to source from locals and provide an economical meal. I had the Nigerian chicken bowl. it was pretty good, but not sensational. My friends had the chili and the taco bowl. All were adequate, but not fabulous. The staff was extremely nice, and if I lived near... More

Stopped in on the way back from the Greenvalley Bookfair last Saturday after looking for a place on Trip Advisor. Had high hopes but was somewhat disappointed. Three of us had the Tom Kah Gai Bowl and the fourth had the Marco Polo Bowl. I'm a small person who doesn't eat much, but even I thought the servings were meager,... More

Picture perfect -- yes. The website pictures really do represent the delicious food items. Our favorite is the Marco Polo bowl of spaghetti. Delicious!
