“Healthiest Place to eat!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Healthy great food ($5 breakfast/lunch, $7.50 dinner), 8am-10pm, 7 days. Rated one of best veggie restaurants in the world by Bon Appetit mag. WONDERFUL, cute place. One block north of Cathedral downtown on same street, look up steps for entrance. Fast and efficient too.

“Hit or Miss”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Been here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is a buffet and I've been here many times. I think dinner is the best. I love the cold bar - simple vegetables prepared with few ingredients to really make the veggies shine. We once had grilled portobellos that my husband thought was steak - texture and flavor was amazing.

Breakfast wasn't as great and neither was lunch. Over the years quality and creativity has varied. I would still highly suggest this place because it isn't a big investment and you'll leave with a full belly. Ambiance is cheesy but the value of the food makes it all worth it.

It's a short walk from the church and a great walk back once your belly is full!

“Pleasant and reliable”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Went here for lunch and the food was almost exactly what I remembered from two years ago. Salads were interesting and varied, soup was a bit peculiar ( "meatballs" made from pumpkin seeds in a watery tomato broth,) house aguas very nice. One quite good concoction of what we were told were broccoli stems-- hard to describe, but worth trying. Where they fail is on the hot food -- inedible seitan(I think that's what it was--it tasted like sponge), mediocre rice and beans. Dessert also underwhelming. It's actually a very pleasant place but the food is just not all that tasty.

“A new menu everyday!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

El Planeta Vegetariano is an inexpensive local spot just down from the main church at Iturbide 270. Breakfast is served from 8 am to noon, the lunch and dinner buffets are served from noon (give them time to make the food switch) till 10 pm. Food is served in a friendly buffet style. Restaurant is small and the staff friendly. The price is right....enjoy.
