Great Veg!

Veggie Galaxy is in the edgy part of Massachusetts Avenue, near the Harvard campus in Cambridge. It's a 50s style diner with a wide range of veggie and vegan dishes - but definitely suitable for meat-eaters!

Wow! We had the chili, veggie ruben, and burger and everything was tasty and well made. Server was incredibly slow, but the food was quick to arrive once we got our order placed. I wish we would've spent more time in Boston so we could have returned. Definitely at the top of our list next time we visit!

I have been here on several occasions and have never been disappointed by the food or service here. The food is delicious and unique- there's very few, if any, restaurants that I'm aware of that have a similar vibe. The restaurant has a very casual, diner-like atmosphere, except that all the food on the menu is vegetarian or vegan. It... More

I attended on 3.13.15 at 6pm for dinner with a friend. The atmosphere was a busy,loud and not conducive to conversation,unless you are fond of yelling. The1950's style decor was cozy and inviting. The staff are friendly,fast and helpful. The food selection on the menu included dinner and breakfast,being that i am a fan of breakfast for dinner, i was... More

My husband jokingly (well, partially jokingly) noticed that he was the only khaki, sweater vested male in the restaurant. Let's just say the interior, staff and guests are eclectic. My perfect style restaurant to hang at anytime. He may have felt a little out of place but he fell in love with the food just as quickly as I did.... More

Love Veggie Galaxy! Service was very friendly and efficient. The diner-style decor adds to the fun and personality of the restaurant. For dinner, I had the spicy Portebella tips with rice and it was delicious. We came back a couple days later for breakfast and it was fantastic. I had the stuffed French Toast ~ portion sizes are huge! We... More

I love Veggie Galaxy. If I could buy stock in this restaurant then I would! Recently I took my parents here (they're pushing 60 but love places with personality) and they loved it! My dad got the pasta bake, my mom the Kendall Square, I the cutlet special and my wife the blue plate. Success all around. The best thing... More

We walked to this place after visiting the MIT museum, only a 5 min walk, and had a great lunch. Great gf choices and even though I'm not vegetarian I had no problem finding many choices. Food was great and service good. I think this place stays busy, so avoid the peak times if possible.

The food here is absolutlley fantastic,and the service is great I only went here because my friend is a vegan, but I totally admit this place is wicked awesome. If hungry in central Square, definitely head to this place. quite often there is a line out the door, there is a reason for this.
