We the hummus dip appetizer, my had infinite blue veggies and I had the neatloaf sandwich, our friends shared a portobello mushroom dish. We also had two red rent lentil soups. All dishes were very good. The service was fine, a bit slow, not bad for us as we were talking anyway. I think the pace is by design to... More

We live in San Diego. My daughter is a vegetarian, but my wife and I are not, however when we all go out we like to pick a restaurant where we are all comfortable. Jyoti Bihanga is 100% Vegetarian, an important consideration for my daughter who sometimes feels uncomfortable in restaurants that claim to serve vegetarian, but may hedge in... More

So, we have been looking for a vegan restaurant to try in San Diego, however, there are VERY few and of those, nothing great. It is located on the edge of Normal Heights Business District on a very busy corner with a stoplight. The area felt a little unsafe. That atmosphere inside was nice and clean and every table was...

My wife and I have been vegetarian for quite some time now. Our vacation to San Diego was met with no shortage of veggie options, and this was easily one of the best. The meatloaf here is awesome, one of the best recipes I've had, and the reuben was delicious as well. Be adventurous here, I've been told everything on... More

Our group consisted of vegans, vegetarians and at least one self proclaimed meat lover. There was something for everyone. The meat lover had the "Neatloaf" and said it was very good. If you have a group of people with different eating preferences, this is the place to go!

The Neatloaf is super even for non-vegetarians. Try it, you'll love it. The mushroom sauce over the mashed potatoes is fantastic!

The restaurant offers good food in a great ambiance. Nice place to visit for vegetarians and vegans. We found the street on which the restaurant is located to be not a very tourist friendly place. All in all, definitely worth a visit if you are in San Diego.

I've now eaten four times at this wonderful café. The peaceful, airy atmosphere; serene, friendly wait-staff; and fabulous menu selections make this a come-back eating destination. I always recommend it as a meet-up place when I'm getting together with a friend or colleague. Whether you are a committed vegan or dedicated omnivore, there are plenty of delicious options to choose... More

The restaurant itself is in a pretty cool space with very high ceilings, almost temple-like inside. The atmosphere is simple, yet nice. The staff is pleasant, cheerful, and helpful. The food is super delicious and fresh. I had a turkey avocado wrap, and it was superb. I liked the atmosphere and the whole experience. It was charming with delicious food.... More
