The thickshakes were incredible!

I visited this restaurant back in November while I was over visiting my friend who's moved to the US. The meal we had here was one of the best we had in the country, and I brought my family of meat eaters with me. I had a really awesome burger, and the thickshakes! Oh my goodness, talk about thick... read more

This place has a friendly old time diner vibe but serves up great unpretentious veggie food with a good range of beers and other drinks. Among my favourite places to go in Boston. Recommended for Everyone even non vegetarians

This lively Cambridge diner filled with interesting people is pretty awesome. I had a passable vegan grilled cheese,but the standout was the vegan Mac and cheese bites, deep fried and spicy. Good service, despite reviews on yelp to the contrary. I under tipped our waiter Jordan because I can not do math, but he was great.❤️

So we decided to try Veggie Galaxy while visiting the MIT museum in Cambridge. The place is set up like a 50's diner, but is vegetarian/vegan... the bakery is totally vegan, but everything can be made vegan. This is a popular place and was packed on Sunday noon. My vegan girlfriend was wowed by the menu and that she could... More

I'm not sure why this is not listed as a restaurant since they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Nice retro diner atmosphere with very good vegan breakfast food. We especially enjoyed the seiten sausages. And, the coffee is good.

All vegetarians & vegan must try this restaurants. Have gluten free options. Especially for dinner it has good amount of options. All pasta & pie options are worth it. Go with anyone.. Good to try different taste.

A variety of old-fashioned deli foods vegan-style. I thoroughly enjoyed my BBQ-ed jack fruit and frappe. My friend delighted in gluten-free treats, too... and she wasn't even hungry when she came in.

We love this place! There is an amble variety of vegetarian/ diner style foods. I particularly love the omlettes. This is affordable, and even my young children love coming here. The staff is very welcoming to families, and has always been very friendly. I also love that they have Cambridge Brewing Company beer on tap.

This restaurant is obviously popular as it was very crowded, but to us it was very boring and old fashioned. The food was like vegetarian for meat eaters, everything seemed to have "fake" meat made out of GLUTEN (called seitan). As 2 of us are coeliac (allergic to gluten) we were rather surprised by this! Personally, compared to vegetarian restaurants... More
