My sister in law & I went to this restaurant because she had been with a vegetarian friend, and liked it. I was up for anything! And the food was really good! You definitely don't need to be a vegan or vegetarian to enjoy this cafe. SIL had the Kimchee Bowl, with brown rice, black beans, salad greens & Kimchee... More

I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner at Good Karma Cafe since they opened and they have always served very good vegan food. Tonight, the food was excellent. The Sweet Chili Tofu with jasmine rice and sauteed zucchini, cabbage and carrots were sauteed perfectly. My husband ordered the Mac and Cheese special, which came with steamed kale and tempeh on the... More

I wandered into this place thinking I might be able to get a cup of hot tea and found a full menu being served in a very tiny place. I walked out with a hot cup of the best soup I've ever tasted, Chickpea and Vegetable. Oh so delicious!

I adore this little nook of a place. It is always bustling and there is a huge rang of options on the menu. The vegan tiramisu is to die for!

I am not Vegan, but my daughter is and it was her birthday/Christmas visit...so we went here. Tiny place, but always busy with people sitting or taking food out. Very casual. Service was excellent. I had the loaded nachos, cream zuchinni soup, and the burrito, and all were excellent. The 3 others in our party all loved their food as... More

My husband is vegetarian & although I am not, I am lactose intolerant sweating at a vegan restaurant is a treat as I know I can eat anything on the menu & my husband can eat most items can. He has nut allergies which is you in a vegan place as they are often a key ingredient. The people working... More

We've eaten here twice in the past week (once each for lunch and dinner). We enjoyed the pad thai, hummus, southwestern Seitan bowl, spicy Korean tacos & buffalo salad. They have a very large selection for a Vegan restaurant. The place is very small and the tables are tight, but they also offer take out. I can't wait to go... More

I try to go to the Good Karma Cafe any chance I get when visiting our daughter who lives in Asbury Park. The wait staff are all friendly and helpful in deciding what to order. There are so many wonderful choices, it's hard to decide! I had the earth burger this time, and it was delicious! The quality of all... More
