A nice place to have a meal at reasonable prices. If meat is not the focus of your meal your going to like this.
Reasonable wine selection.
I had the veg stir fry with tofu which was good and my wife enjoyed the spinach ravioli.

Tillie Gort's has won the "Best Vegetarian Restaurant" awards for many years, and for good reason. Tillie's has been a favorite of locals for decades, and the restaurant has a long history of using the freshest ingredients, offering wonderful special soups every day, and offering yummy Mexican food, pastas, organic salads and desserts. Some menu items, such as the Jive Turkey and Turkado sandwiches have been on the menu for years, while other, new items have been added from time to time. As longtime locals, my husband and I have enjoyed eating at Tillie's since the 1970s, with our families, friends, and out-of-town visitors.

We wanted something light for lunch and, being vegetarian looked for something that fit our requirements. Found this great place just across the street from the Pacific Grove Visitor's Center (and not far from the outlets and the aquarium). The cream of asparagus soup with bread hit the spot. In fact, it was so good, we came back the next day. It's not 100% vegetarian, as they do have some tuna on the menu; they do offer vegan as well. Didn't get a chance to try the not-meat-meatloaf, but it sounds great.

Wonderful, established vegetarian restaurant close, but not part of the tourist scene. This is classic vegetarian hippie food. Super yummy but not many vegan or healthy choices unless you want a salad. Huge portions. No kids menu but very family friendly and kids can order sides or eat mom and day's food. They had some vegan desserts but we were too full. Homemade veggie burgers really yummy and firm, not mushy like some places. We were passing through as tourists, I wish this restaurant were in my city! I gave only 4 stars because it would have been nice to have a few healthier choices (whole wheat breads and more vegan...)

It's great to have an option as vegan, but the food is average, and really expensive for such a small portion.
