The best vegetarian

I've never been disappointed by this place. Their salads are amazingly fresh. The beer battered tofu is so good.They sometimes have a vegan mac and cheese that's awesome. You can't go wrong and somehow they are fast too.

Harrison Street is a VCU staple. A regular of students and faculty alike, the informal cafe specializes in vegan food. Order at the counter, food delivered to table. Not huge, so sometimes space can be an issue. Coffee okay (not the best in town to be sure), but the food is fresh, vegan, and well-prepared. I usually have one of... More

Seriously I would go here again and try something different than what I ate. This restaurant/cafe has such a Richmond vibe and a great menu with a fantastic variety of vegetarian dishes. I ordered an Asian steak sandwich and just wasn't to my liking. My friends ordered red lentil soup and a spinach mushroom feta wrap that they said was... More

This is a cool little spot for coffee or to grab a quick bite. I was travelling with a Vegan who enjoyed their menu selections. Friendly staff in this local VCU quick stop!

Loved this place. Cute, parking out front. I ordered a delicious, huge salad and lemonade, served with a smile. Going to get chai next time.

Had lunch here with my daughter, who is a vegetarian. We both ordered the vegetarian French Dip, and it was delicious. Way more food than we could eat--we should have ordered just one and split it.

Went here with my daughter for breakfast. I had an omelet, she got French toast. We both enjoyed our food, and the portions were huge.

Although the Harrison Street Cafe (aka Harrison Street Coffee Shop) is getting rave reviews for its vegan cooking, we (my adult kids & myself) only got hot beverages to go, and some baked items which I can't recall much about. My daughter said her Chai Tea Latte was the best she'd ever had in her life. We were there on... More

Driving back from Maryland, my husband and I were looking for a place to eat, vegetarian/vegan. Vegguide.org listed this restaurant as an option with good reviews. Well, these reviews were in point. The vegan options were a plenty! I ordered the red lentil burger with a curried vegenaise dressing and my husband had the black bean hummus wrap. We both... More
