I tried the fried oatmeal (don't worry - it's the least greasy fried food you'll ever eat) and it was good. Fresh bananas, coconut and blueberries in a syrup. It came with a small bowl of fresh fruit. Service is fantastic, everyone is very friendly, and we were seated shortly after arriving on a busy Saturday afternoon. My only disappointment... More

I had a salad with a veggie burger on it. It was tasty! If you need to find a vegetarian restaurant that anyone can enjoy- here it is.

I noticed this little restaurant on my way to the green line- I am a vegetarian and was very happy to find it! Sweet and cozy atmosphere, very personable...

Really enjoyed our lunch at Munch. Comfortable, clean environment with attentive and very pleasant waitstaff. Salad was very fresh and the balsamic vinaigrette was excellent. I had vegan lasagna and loved it. Their marinara is redolent of fresh tomato taste and is one of my favorites. I had steamed greens on the side and they were done to perfection. My... More

Bring Cash! Only cash accepted here. ATM inside restaurant--how convenient. Nachos looked delicious on another diner's plate, but they lacked zip. Good lemonade! May have to go back to try something else, though in my Vegan experience, the food always tastes like something is missing. Wait person was nice.

First timer with a friend and really liked it. I will be going back for a second visit. We enjoyed sitting outside on the sidewalk. Only reason I'm not giving it 5 out of 5 is because it took our waitress a little too long to come clear our plates and give us our check.

Tried for the first time a couple of weeks ago. The beet burger was the special of the week. Served on a potato bun with choice of cheese and roasted vegetables on the side, it was delicious. Cash only, that's my only issue. Staff is very friendly.

Vegetarian restaurant, gluten free and vegan options. Home made desserts that are quite good and family friendly service. The restaurant is quite small so you may have a wait but the food is delicious and worth the wait.

This small, homey restaurant serves up meatless comfort food in ample portions and at reasonable prices. Many ingredients are locally sourced. The “Beef” Nachos Supreme is a terrific appetizer; I love the Groovy Plate and the Began Lasagna.

Description
Munch is a vegetarian restaurant mostly vegan with extensive gluten free varieties. We consider our meals vegan comfort food. Our menu ranges from protein packed meal salads to delicious homemade soups to satisfying stew bowls and weekly gourmet specials. Tofu and portabella spinach lasagna with Nana's authentic marinara and the Amazing Black Bean Burgers packed with roasted veggies are two of our most popular items. Munch serves real vegetable and fruit smoothies, vegan ice cream sweetened with beet sugar and many vegan and gluten free desserts. Our baked goods are made in house by our personal baker. Our customers dictate our menu. And thank you to all of them!
