Creative dishes, fun atmosphere, spankin' chocolate cream pie, made with real whipped cream and a rich cookie crumb crust! Breakfast all day which I love.

Always glad to patronize all-veg establishments. This was our second visit while staying nearby. Service was great this time despite a mostly full establishment (on a Tuesday night, no less!); we were seated promptly and well cared for. Food arrived quickly and was hot. Decent selection all veg with many vegan options/substitutions, including all manner of vegan desserts. Flavor and... More

We just rolled into Boston on a trip & decided to check out Veggie Galaxy. What a great experience to kick off our trip. The ambiance is perfect, a 50s style diner with Vegan & Vegetarian food. The menu has everything from breakfast, sandwiches & more. The portions are filling and just right. Everyone in our party was very happy... More

My wife and I prefer vegan food and were looking for this option while recently traveling to Boston area. After Google search, we happened upon this restaurant by chance. We were very pleasantly surprised with prompt service, knowledgeable server and great food. Vegan scrambled tofu with toast, home fries and a side of sriram bacon was excellent. My wife had... More

I only got the pancakes when I went here, so I'm not sure how the other food is. However, the traditional pancakes with caramelized banana butter are amazing! I'd definitely recommend trying them if you decide to eat here. I also liked the layout of the dinner- you can sit at booths or at the counter. The space theme was... More

I enjoyed my lunch here and I'm so glad there are so many nice vegetarian options in the area. I was actually on my way to Clover when I saw this place and decided to give it a try. I had a Kendall Square cheese burger and a berry sundae for dessert. Both were good, nothing out of this world,... More

We stopped in to Veggie Galaxy for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. There was a wait but it wasn't too long, maybe 10 - 15 minutes top. While we were waiting for a table we did notice a few booths that were empty. My husband ordered the black bean burger with fries and I ordered the chick pea "egg salad"... More

I always go here when I am in town. It is hard to get that real diner experience once I went vegan. This place totally hits the mark. They do a fantastic poutin, ruben, French toast, pancakes, biscuits, milkshakes, donuts and more! Fun and friendly staff. Love this place.

Although I've been a vegetarian for 22 years, I'm usually not a huge fan of vegetarians restaurants because I feel they use a lot of weird, processed ingredients instead of keeping things simple and focusing on the natural flavors of veggies. Veggie Galaxy didn't do much to dispel this impression. So I appreciate the creativity of the restaurant and the... More

Totally stumbled upon this place because it was near my hotel and omfg, it was the best discovery ever! I got take out from this place 2 out of my 4 nights in Central Sq. The pick up process was a little unorganized because they were so busy, but it was worth the wait (and they have a good seating... More
