Was expecting it to be great based on reviews, and it always looked so cool walking by, but it wasn't great. The sandwiches are overpriced, they claim to come with field greens plus your choice of another side. There were two tiny leaves of greens that looked like they accidentally fell on the plate, and that was the "field greens."... More

My fiancé and I were in Boston for a short getaway and checked reviews for vegan food. Veggie Galaxy exceeded our expectations! She had amazing Rueben seitan and I had mushroom chickpea burger. Great atmosphere and wonderful food. Very retro!

I had dinner here the other day. The food was good -- nice pasta, but not different than what I can make at home, greasy onion rings, and a nice shake. The place is very noisy, so if you're looking for a quiet romantic night or a business meeting, perhaps look elsewhere. Finally, the (mens) toilets are filthy. If you... More

Our waitress was exuberant! The menu offerings were basic but unique at the same time. I opted for a bean burger but with sliced granny smith apple and sweet potato mash toppings. It was great! The coleslaw had a zing of pepper and did not wallow in dressing. Fries were crisp. Lots of young people as expected in a college... More

I live in Boston and love Veggie Galaxy for brunch. I'm not vegan but always get the vegan egg omelet - the egg substitute (polenta?) is great and their house-made jam is delicious! Vegan desserts there are amazing too. I took my meat-eating boyfriend and family and they all loved their food. Recommend a reservation if you're going on a... More

Not so easy to get a seat, you have to sign in and then wait your call. We were just forgotten, so had to get back in line and wait much longer than the others. Food is all vegetarian and vegan options, really greasy but really good. Staff was nice and price was okay.

After checking out the website before we arrived in Boston we knew we had to check this place out. So many vegan options we didn't know where to start. We settled on the burgers which were excellent, really tasty and the sides were good too. The portions were that big we didnt have room for dessert. We returned the following... More

Ate here 2 nights running it was so good and very reasonable. No bookings but wait pretty short. Lovely staff and great, unusual choice of food. The cauli of the sea was so delicious and mac cheese very good with their hot sauce. Wish there were more of these places around.

Had to wait 30 minutes for a table but great 50's diner vibe so time went by fast reading all the reviews they had posted. We ordered frappes upon an other customers recommendation. The vanilla was by far the best one. The frappes are expensive. I had the black bean burger with their home made chips. Burger was moist, so... More

We went for dinner when we dropped my daughter off at college. We got seated right away and the waiter came by for our order. My daughter and I ordered the Kendall Square Burger and my husband the Reuben. They make all their breads, burgers and other vegetarian items fresh. The black bean burgers were slightly mushy which fresh bean... More
