Lovely food, amazing spices, loves the spicy rice noodles. Great choice, excellent value for money and great location. The place itself lacks personality in terms of decoration but has so much to offer on the plate.

We went here for breakfast, twice. The breakfast burrito was really good, and REALLY filling. The French toast was excellent. The coffee was decent and juice was zingy. The service was...okay. Not great but not bad,

Really enjoyed the tacos, burritos and nachos at herbivore! The restaurant has a cute little patio in the back. The food came out quickly. Service was friendly. I would love to dine there again!

Couldn't wait to eat here. All vegan and delicious. I had the trail mix pancakes, they were yummy. Hubby had the scrambler combo. He said it was the best ever. We shared a biscuit with sausage gravy, that was excellent, wish I had room for more. Worth going again, don't know what dinner is like, but menu looks good.

Sure I get it, they want people to think the vegan food is similar to animal based foods so people who are afraid of vegan food will still feel comfortable. While it states that everything is vegan there is no description of what they mean when they say chicken chunks or grilled beef so I asked the waiter. He said... More

I ordered a pretty sad looking quinoa salad. Avocado and dressing were really lacking. Unfortunately, it wasn't worth the $10, and I'm not entirely sure I'll return to try something else from the menu. I was very excited about all the vegetarian options.

Ordered four beers and two shakes after being seated and took our time looking at the menu as there were so many options. My son got two appetizer for a meal which arrived first. The chili cheese fries were okay, but everyone really liked the fake chicken. The rest of our meals were delivered shortly after. "Anything else I can... More

Was here with my friend who is vegan. Never had vegan food, was really surprised. We both really enjoyed it. There were too many options, I didn't know what to order. We both ordered the falafel, and chocolate milkshakes. It was a nice atmosphere.

I was so excited to go to Herbivore during my brief visit to San Francisco, and I was so disappointed. I'm a vegetarian who looks forward to good vegan food when I travel. I ordered the mac and cheese with the walnut crumbles - it was really bad. I also ordered the ginger mint lemonade (which they make there), that... More

Staying in Mission District

Neighborhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighborhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.
