“Great local food, Inspiring business model”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The owner was stopping by each table to be sure people were pleased and to get feedback for any needed improvements. She is as delightful as her food. Her business model is very inspiring. The food was very fresh and tasty. The bowls are made by two employees, the tables were made by a local artist. The background music was soft, yet fun. The website is quite uplifting as well as informative about their food and mission. Community at work!

“Health food friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is a hopping place during weekday lunchtime. Lots of choices for those practicing a vegan diet, looking for gluten free, or liking spices. Salads, soups and sandwiches are their specialty

“Good!”

I went with my family to their Port Republic Road location and found the food great. It was a little expensive but I received lots of food.

Thank you for your comments! This is always very helpful. We're glad your family came and enjoyed your time. Since A Bowl of Good is family owned we are always thrilled to hear of other families who find this a good place to eat. *You might find our half-price breakfasts at the moment (until January 31) an appealing price point.

I love going to Bowl fo Good. Their food has such good flavor and I like that they get their food from local farmers. It's a very friendly atmosphere.

“Love This Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

We were north of Harrisonburg, VA and needed to find a quick, close lunch. Found Bowl of Good on Trip Advisor and I'm so clad we did! They even had a kids menu for our grandchildren! Food was fresh, tasty and original. Everyone was happy!
