A unique relaxed dining experience from a world cuisine menu of stews, soups, salads and wraps. We had Maharaja Bowl was a spicy lentil stew. My husbands Sigon Gyro (like a wrap) was tasty too. I loved eating here. I also respect their support of a farm to food philosophy while taking care of the earth.

I ordered the Thai "Hot Bowl" (soup). Beautiful and aesthetically pleasing, but very bland. Husband got the Nach-Moo bowl (chili atop nachos). Both very nice presentation and HOT on a cold, rainy May evening. His chips were soggy before the end of the meal. Looooved the worldwide ethnic cuisine/menu offerings. Very bohemian and earthy feel.

Would recommend. Had the Peace, Love & Granola Bowl. Very fresh & delicious, with banana & orange slices. Definitely wanted to get more to go

Ordered the Thai bowl and the Thai slaw. The Thai bowl was lacking a lot of flavor for claiming to be Thai, really tasted like coconut milk over rice and chicken. Their house made lemonade was delicious, and the atmosphere was great. If I'm ever back in Harrisonburg, I would stop back but try something different.

The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is spot-on. You should try everything at least once. The staff are wonderful....for the most part.

We picked up food to take back to our hotel. The portions were a great size- esp the black bean and rice dish. We like to eat healthy and this was great. Folks working were nice too.

This small café serves soups and pastries made from scratch and local ingredients. Everything we ate was delicious, staff was friendly, prices very reasonable.

There is no place like Bowl of Good!! Food is delicious and fresh. It's a good place to support local growers. Adjacent to the Cafe is a gift shop that has hand made items from third world countries. A great way to support third world countries..

Nothing special but the offerings are different and amazingly fresh. I had the lentil soup with citrus resulting in a kind of sweet taste. Followed by a bowel of Nigerian chicken stew. Both wonderful. First visit and look forward to next! Affordable too I hope to come to one of their Int'l theme meals

We visited this place for dinner one night, and we ordered an entree each. The food was nice, light, and flavorful. However, the portions were very small and expensive. The service was good, but I wouldn't visit for dinner again.
