|Green Earth Cafe & Bakery ||I go there when I'm in the area. Currently I'm crazy about their Lentil soup, bean burger, and salad. Sushi is good but I wish it wasn't sour. I'm not into sour stuff. This is all vegan and organic. The desserts are less sweet than other places. People go crazy over their chocolate cake. ME? I like their banana bread with Twig tea. Wifi available, though it's a kept secret. ||2012-03-27 |

Cilantro braised tofu with a side of rich and creamy peanut sauce and a second side of Moroccan Citrus Cilantro Dipping Sauce.Creamy Brown Rice Vegetable LAsagna : Layers of Brown Rice LAsagna
Seasonal local Vegetables, herbed Tofu Ricotta, topped with a creamy "Alfredo" Sauce
|Thai Place II ||Fancy place where you can take a date for dinner without blowing your budget. pumpkin Curry is their all time best dish. "Pop" the vegetarian owner wants will do his best to please his customers. ||2011-11-07 |
|Source ||Owned by two brothers-1 is veg. Larger vegan dessert menu on weekends. Great food but the portions are small. They strive to make fresh bread 3 times a day. I was there one night there were 8 employees and 5 customers. If business is slow, maybe send some employees home. To find this place, it's one block from the roundabout. Look for the HUGE bill board and outdoor seats. parking n front ||2011-05-05 |
|Wild Pepper Chinese Restaurant ||The best lunch deal in town. $6.95 lunch includes brown rice, soup and a sampler salad. Lunch special is Mon-Sat. My favorite is their Szechuan "chicken". No MSG in their food, brown rice. Decor is very elegant. Most of their business is takeout cause you get a free chow mein or fried rice with your order. ||2011-04-07 |
|Judahlicious ||yum, the only problem with this place is the weather in this area is usually cold. The community really supports this restaurant and it's doing well. I love the vegan signs, oh yea, wheat free vegan waffles too. My REAL favorite is the vegan raw ice creams.
There's huge signs just for vegan foods ||2011-03-06 |
|Sogo Tofu ||200 types of Taiwanese style food items/snacks. How come no one has told me about this place? They have homemade organic soymilk and tofu. You can get a whole brick of tofu for $2.99. $7.25 you get 3 entrees with rice or noodles. Don't know what to order? just watch what other people are ordering. I recommend you go there when it first opens when the food is piping hot. ||2011-02-08 |
|Dasaprakash ||VEGAN creamy soups and sauces made with lentils were amazing. This is definitely way better than Udupit. However, the price confirms what I said. This is the only reason I didn't give it a perfect 5 stars. The lunch and dinner is around $10 per person. I would order several dishes for a group of people to share. Zagat gave 4 stars out of 5 stars. ||2011-02-08 |
|Flacos ||Very happy to see a vegan place like this. they just extended the Friday and Sat hours till midnight. Will open on Sundays from 12 to ~5pm. This is another great place for late night vegan dining.
I love their neon OPEN sign, it attracts people to come inside. I was there on a Sat night there were non stop customers coming at 9pm.

|Loving Hut ||GREAT location, just 4 blocks from UC MED Center - UCSF. Lots of medical staff and sick patient will see first hand what vegan food is. Their chow mein is the best I've ever had. It's slippery yet it doesn't have the oily taste or feel.
I like coming here to say hi to Janet and Lynn they are family owners of the restaurant. Lynn has a 100% lifetime veg daughter who's 9 years old. ||2011-01-15 |
|Loving Hut ||The won ton soup, Guru Curry, are one of their best dishes. For the soup I asked for fried tofu instead of their fake "pork". The restaurant is a great place for people watching, I feel like I'm a gold fish inside a fish bowl. Thank G*d this place is busy most of the time. I hate to be the only customer sitting alone. Good clean service. They are veg folks trying their best to make ithappe ||2010-11-01 |
|Cinnaholic ||The smell of cinnamon rolls is a human's MOST favorite smell.(based on a scientific research) In summary, this will be a very popular item to eat and smell. Yes, just go inside the store to get a free whiff of a fresh roll; that's still warm when served. Popular favorites are: raspberry, cookie dough, almond mocha,and lime. They claim this is a 31 flavors place. l/2 sugar version coming? ||2010-07-19 |
|Saturn Cafe ||Love those individual tables, especially the table that says "vegan love". There's a SPACE LOUNGE where you can reserve for a private party. With a little of digging, every vegan dish I had was great. Ask for the VEGAN chiplotle dipping sauce-75cents, instead of the reg version. Fries are made the way I like it; thin and crispy. Taquitos are also addictive. Homemade vegan patties coming soon. ||2010-07-19 |
|Holy Gelato ||This place lasted longer than Cafe Gratitude and Cha Ya which used to be on the same block. You can't go wrong ordering the Maggie Mudd ice creams. 3 years ago, they had a sign that said "vegan ice cream served here" Not sure if they have that sign there anymore. Lots of knick Knack to browse or to buy. Cool one of kind gifts. Non practical but the person receiving it will appreciate it. ||2010-04-08 |
|Gracias Madre ||Just give me the plain guacamole, refried beans and blue corn tortilla. That will make me happy. I don't need all that other fancy stuff. My friend said they did a great job on the guacamole. The tamale is made with a corn that is different/special. My favorite drink is the ginger beer. The decor is more fancy then I expected. All the staff members are super nice. ||2010-01-27 |
|Herbivore ||Great vegan brunches, I usually order the tofu scrambles, hash browns or pancakes. And the vegan whip cream is to die for.
One of the best places for breakfast. For reg meals, I just eat their grilled corn, with side of mash potatoes with gravy. ||2009-08-28 |
|Ananda Fuara ||Very busy, successful veggie restaurant that serves one of the best soups around. Their curry dishes are always great. You can ask to sample their curry. There's many homemade desserts to choose from, I haven't found any desserts I'm super crazy about yet..
Their most popular dish is their neat loaf. However, it's not vegan. ||2009-08-04 |
|Udupi Palace ||The prefix meal 2 years ago, you were not able to make it all vegan. Their famous spicy Rasam soup was too spicy for me. I usually can handle above average spicy foods. Vegan Tony said this is his favorite place to eat. (he's Indian) This is a 2007 review since I never went back. I enjoyed the food at SF Udupi a lot better. Entree selection also makes a big difference..
|Milan Sweet Center ||This is the first time, I can ask for a VEGAN thail. I chose the $8 thail.
Even though it's supposed to be a cheap snack place/fast food Indian Joint, the prices are the same.
The worse thing about this place is they use stryofoam plates and plastic utensils. The best part is you get to try all their snacks before you buy them. Unfortunately most of the vegan snacks are fried flou ||2009-06-25 |
|Enjoy Vegetarian ||The most inexpensive way to try their food is get a bunch of friends to eat family style with you. If that's not easy to do, try their very affordable $7.50 lunch menu. Bring a takeout container cause small eaters will have extras to bring home. If you don't know what to order, order entrees with photos on the menu. They are their top sellers. #90 Bean Curd Roll is my favorite dish. ||2009-05-21 |
|Millennium ||This is the place where my steady boyfriends take me out to dinner. My favorite entree is the Seitan. Their ice cream is always good but their chocolate is too sweet for me. I get so happy sit at this busy restaurant filled with so many meat-eating customer. I wish I can spread the forumula to all vegetarian restaurant. It is not a perfect restauran cause I can't afford to go there every day. ||2009-05-04 |
|Core Elations ||I enjoy the free expensive food samples. My favorites are the drinks. They reuse the glass bottles which was ahead of their time over 3 years ago. That is when I first tried their food in Berkeley farmer's market
Please note young coconut milk is used in many of the drinks. Thai coconuts are dipped in bleach and formaldhyde to make it bright white.
Open only on Tue and Sat Farmer's Market ||2009-04-06 |
|Udupi Palace ||The Dosa was fabulous. Buffet available every day till 3:30pm or so. $8.95 for weekday lunch. They don't have a professional buffet table where the food is kept warm. They have little sternos to keep the food warm. When I was there on a Monday at 1pm, a lot of the food was cold. (sternos were out) I asked the waiter to heat up a curry, he added another uneco sterno to heat up my curry. ||2009-01-24 |
|Shangri-La ||I'm glad the owner, William became a veg in 2007. The Shanghinese Won ton with ginger is very good. Don't order the wrong type of won ton. The pie pa tofu has been getting a bit too salty. Overall, I keep telling folks to check out their 7 days a week lunch box specials. It's a great bargain. Thanks Tammy and Chris for the food recommendations and dining out at Shangrila. ||2008-12-01 |
|Cafe Gratitude ||When you walk inside their Cafes,, you know it's a bit different in a positive way. It's a unique experience that they hope to pass down thru their food. My favorite is always their drinks/smooties and desserts. They are highest quality. I always order I am Grace, Hazel Nut smoothie. I'll pass on the lumpy chocolate nibs on my food. Lemon/Lime pie is still my favorites. All the food is vega ||2008-11-05 |
|Loving Hut ||Everything served is vegan. They have 2 raw dishes. wish the salad was larger in size. Overall the food is good but the price is too high for nearby Stanford Students.
Try their vegan potato salad, maybe they will give you a taste.
I was hoping this was a regular restaurant rather than a cafe. I think there's a lot of competition since there's so many established cafe in the are ||2008-10-20 |
|Golden Buddha ||I am never tired of the same entrees, potato curry, "lamb" clay pot, Indian fried rice. I always get large portions. Maybe because they know I bring new customers in all the time.
If doing a takeout, they might let you use your own clean containers.
They are always friendly towards me. The older waitress is a bit shy, but she's never rude to me. They passed 100% City's Health Inspection. ||2008-10-11 |
|Loving Hut ||They serve slice or whole Black China vegan cakes including their OWN homemade "Cheese" cake.
The waitress was super nice to me. They patiently answered all my questions.
They have an extensive menu. I would recommend ordering the Vietnamese or Chinese entrees rather than the other entrees such as Sandwiches and Indian entrees.
"They got their act together" Great professional consultants ||2008-10-11 |
|Tofu Yu ||Great vegan Blueberry muffins which better than the strawberry muffin.
Their GIANT vegan cookies are $1.25 each. Day old cookies and pastries are 2 for the price of one. Cookie lovers don"t pass up this great deal. I was there on a Saturday 10am, and there were a lot of day old pastries.
Very modern decor in a corner of a new building
I wish this place smelled like coffee rather perfume ||2008-10-11 |
|Karma ||The dumplings and noodle soups were very good. Both are not spicy at all. At your request you can ask your soup to be more spicy or if you're nice, they add more fresh herbs.
The best thing I like about this place is the owner and worker are veg. Male is a painter.
Very clean place.
There's no advertisement budget so pretty much they are depending on word of mouth or Karma advertising ||2008-10-10 |
|Donna's Tamales ||yum yum yum, it's great to have a good variety of veggie tamales I can eat. My favorite are the ones with the Black beans. The warm tamales are not that much more expensive than the cold ones. Their wonderful Tamales can be purchased at Rainbow, Whole Foods and other natural food stores. The owners are nice vegetarian females. ||2008-08-23 |
|Udupi Palace ||Without advertising the very popular "chain" restaurant in just 2 weeks is very busy. Like Lucky Creation, most of the workers, including the chef are not vegetarian. The SPICY soup will light a fire thru your nose. I wasn't able to handle that. Wish the price was a tad cheaper. $10 for a Thali meal/lunch and dinner prices. Good to see many people eating a veg meal there ||2008-08-04 |
|Gelateria Naia ||Due to lack of demand, they only have ONE soy ice cream for vegans. However there's lots of sorbets.
Glad at least they have a bit more selection than other ice cream stores.
The Berkeley store has a lot more vegan ice cream to choose from.
If I didn't have to watch my weight, I would eat ice cream every day. ||2008-08-04 |
|Central Vegetarian Cuisine ||Full house on a Sat night, the SPICY noodle soup was good. The garlic "beef" I didn't know was fried to the point I wasn't able to taste the flavor. The "chicken" curry is not as good as Golden Lotus. Of course spring rolls are always a hit in this Vietnamese veggie restaurant. Overall, it's good to find a clean place to eat good veggie foods. Not part of the Supreme Master group. ||2008-07-22 |
|Bok Choy Garden ||they try to give you A+ service all the time. The owner Ken is a great listener and open to any positive ideas. I think he is a very pleasant person overall.
They use soy oil to fry and cook their foods. To me, that's very. important. As of this writing, 6/2008, they no longer have a lunch menu. So, their lunch and dinner menu are the same. Check out their unique specials.
|Lucky Creation ||20 year non-veg employees tend like to talk across the room. #51 chow fun lacked bean sprouts and celery which are cheapest veggies you can buy. Was too salty too. My favorite is the bean thread soup. With no lunch specials, this Chinese place is more expensive than a lot of near by meat-Chinese restaurants. I'm surprised all these years, this is still the ONLY Chinese Veg restaurant availabl ||2008-05-22 |
|All about Herbs @ Paris Cafe ||Cash only place with 5 tables, that serves lemon grass and ginger tea made from scratch. (the tea is not too strong). They serve over 10 signature dishes with white or brown rice at ~$10 per entree. Competition is fierce, with 3 other Thai restaurants just l/2 a block away. 4th on GEary is crowded! Great/nice place to go, but my preference is still a clean hole-in-the-wall for half the price ||2008-04-12 |
|Enjoy Vegetarian ||Great selection of fake meats. Unfortunately, I prefer fresh vegetables which are made perfectly here; brocolli is crunchy. I had their pai pa tofu lunch special which is a bargain for $8.15 including tax, soup, BROWN rice and egg roll. The egg roll was not soggy. The most expensive prefix dinner, was not for me cause most of the dishes have fake meat. I would order individual entrees instead ||2008-04-08 |
|The Plant Cafe Organic ||Great place where beautiful people hang out. All the customers that eat here seems like a billboard for healthy people. There's usually a line to order food. After you order, THEN you sit at your table. Great salad (but not enough as a meal), 8 types of vegan desserts including raw vegan cheesecake which I like. (my friend doesn't like it though)
Overall, it's a popular place with goodfood ||2008-04-08 |
|Komala Vilas ||I was there 4 years ago, and I had the lunch buffet. They come over to your table and scoop food out of "cow buckets" (looks like cleaning bucket. (it's actually respectful to serve at your table. Overall, I ate too much and felt too full afterwards. They had a daikon dish that was my favorite. I usually go to the Cash And Carry grocery store next door and buy a 75cents samosa. ||2008-03-29 |
|Di Lac ||Vietnamese, Thai and Chinese food served, over 120 items and 30 types of drinks. With such an extensive menu, there's gotta be some here that you will like.
The Spicy Thai soup was good but my Eggplant and Lemon Grass Tofu was average. I think Golden Lotus in SF is better. ||2008-03-26 |
|Kokila's Kitchen ||Their Roti is great, they sell them by the thousands via takeout orders. The decoration at the restaurant is very basic. They have a great web site. Even though site said, the google and mapquest directions are wrong. Follow their directions AND bring your own map. The street numbers on the opposites sides are different. Since they were Veg News winners, I had HIGH expectations on the food. ||2008-03-26 |
|Annapoorna ||I spoke with the female owner, she was very much aware what was vegan and was not. The vegan whole wheat bread is fried in oil. They don't have nan, so there's no question if there's ghee (butter) in the bread.
$9 all veg lunch buffet with 15 items, (13 items are vegan). this was confirmed on 3/21.
She said a lot of vegan customers eat at the restaurant all the time ||2008-03-23 |
|Weird Fish ||unique vegan dishes you can't find anywhere else. Spicy Avocado Soup, fried Tempe with sweet potato and reg potato fries, "Buffalo" wings made from Tempe. Out the door, lunch $12, Dinner $20. The food is more than I can eat. The owner used to date a veggie gal that why he has so many vegan dishes. He knows there's a demand for vegan food. I'm not used to eating fried foods, stomach is heavy. ||2008-02-14 |
|Daily Health ||there's a large selection of vegan and raw prepared food to eat. It amazing the selection they have for such a small store. They even have high grade raw vegan chocolate in a little Gold box. There's 4 of them and costs around $8.
Fresh juice made in front of you is always my most favorite drink.
Don't forget to check the back of the store where you can sit down and enjoy your quality sandwi ||2008-01-29 |
|Gaia's Garden ||warm molasses corn bread, 8 types of homemade dressing, fresh beets, are all the extra things other BUFFET places DO NOT HAVE.
1 pasta 1 curry , 2 soups (dal or split
$8 lunch/$9 dinner. I think the dinner is a great deal since you can get more for your money. I think the owner purposely made the pasta very ordinary so you won't eat too much. Overall I was happy I didn't gorge myself.
|Layonna Vegetarian ||This restaurant has over 100 seats in their dining area. Mao Pa tofu, curry "chicken" was good and came in large portions. I was told everything was vegan. (can some else confirm this?) Ask to cook in FRESH oil rather than used oil.
I had to educate the cashier what vegan meant.
The steam dumpling was delicious. , 6 small dumplings for $5. Layonna will drive Bok choy out of busines ||2007-02-06 |
|Pizza Plaza ||I recommend getting something special like the pesto or the Greek Goddness. The regular vegan pizza is not as exciting. I recommend go to their web site and call ahead for take out orders. Each pizza will take 20 mins.
I am happy to say the dough is very fresh and moist. It's something that is a rare treat.
This place is a historical place it went from a meat to now a veg place. ||2007-01-04 |
|Big Lantern Dim Sum ||potstickers, veg dumpling,chive dumpling they use fake chicken stock for flavoring, but they can't tell me if it has msg. It's delicious but after eating it felt like MSG. Another person also confirmed it.
My friend is crazy about the Sesame chicken, which has a good sweet sauce. I never cared for mock meat.
Overall, if you order the right dishes, it's a good place.
|Pa-raw-dise || even though the sign says open everyday from 10-9pm, it seems to be closed all the time. I have no idea what's the situation with this restaurant. I'm turning a 4.5 rating to a 0. ||2006-10-17 |
|Lydia's Kitchen Cafe ||Livng and Cooked food served at the Restaurant and many important fairs/events. Juices and raw crackers are great. You can bring your own cup for the juice. Lovely place take your kids to. ||2006-06-26 |

|Cha-Ya ||Their best secret dish, shhh, is their miso soup.

|Cafe Valparaiso ||I was so excited to see so many South American vegetarian items on the menu.
I've tired a few of their entrees, and felt are not as spicy to MY taste. Hot sauce available at each table. ||2005-12-05 |
|Hulu House ||This is a SouthEast Asian restaurant where they serve Singapore, Burmese type food. My favorites are: Laksa (curry noodles), mixed vegetables (comes with fresh oyster mushrooms), tumeric rice. ASK! ||2005-09-22 |
|Tofoo Com Chay ||cheap! ok, I should of said, inexpensive and afforable. I think you get a lot of value for your money. l/2 of the menu items contains fake meat, maybe they can subsitute something else for you. ||2005-08-07 |
|Cheung Yuen Dim Sum ||Local food with very inexpensive prices. Ignore the crumbs on the floor, this place has clean food. I've been eating here for over 3 years. Vegetarian Items: Chinese crispy cake, cupcake, wife cak ||2005-04-12 |
|Vege House ||Great food, if you are a regular customer, they tend to give a bigger portions. You can order a head of time, their vegan Vietnamese crepes and other items for your next vegan potluck/party. ||2005-04-12 |
|Golden Era ||my favorites are curry potatoes, carmelized chicken (for my meat eating friends), Soup with noodles, mango shake, made with fresh mangos,(ask to make the shake vegan style.) ||2004-09-30 |
|Slice Of Life ||The smoothies are delicious. I ordered a slice of vegan ricotta cheese pizza with vegan crust and I thought it would taste better if there's vegetables in it. non-vegan soy cheese also served. ||2004-08-30 |
|Pizza Orgasmica ||I had their pizza at the SFBAVEG's Vegan Pizza Tasting Party. I thought the thin crust was fine, but there wasn't enough sauce and toppings. The "R" rated names of the entrees are not kid-friendly. ||2004-08-25 |
|Body Technician ||Excellent excellent, what can I say, A miracle worker.
He has very strong caring hands that will heal. ||2004-08-19 |
|Jay's Cheesesteak ||Warning, the french fries are fried with their meat products. The staff members were nice to me. The mushroom Seitan sandwich was good. However, overall I prefer to eat an avocado sandwich ||2004-08-15 |
|Lanesplitter Pizza ||The wonderful vegan Ricotta Cheese made for tofu is a famous vegan item.
Their soy cheese is not vegan cause it contains casin.
If you order their Spinach Calzone, for $8, it can serve 2 people. ||2004-08-02 |
|Smart Alec's Intelligent Food ||It was 4 years ago, and I won't go back again. the premade potatoe/corn soup was super thick and sort of cold. the fries were too salty. It tastes like "fast food". Roy W recommended me this place ||2004-07-07 |

|Juicey Lucy's ||Best tofu sandwich and smoothies. I world order ahead of time since everything is made from scratch. Dessert cakes are great, but small in size. Organic food, 99% of menu is vegan-Funky place ||2004-06-05 |
|Long Life Noodle Co & Jook Joint ||I didn't like the veg noodle soup at all. It was very bland. And I had a 2 for 1 Entertainment coupon 4 years ago. Hope it's better by now. ||2004-06-05 |
|Village Market ||When you enter the small, locally owned store, you're greated by a huge fountain. Quality of produce is good, prices is standard organic prices. ||2004-06-02 |
|Thoms Natural ||Lots of free samples on their organic produce. They cut small pieces and put them on plastic sealed containers. Price are high, but their organic figs can be a bargain. Look for bargain sales. ||2004-06-02 |
|Other Avenues ||The manager of the store is Indian and she stocked up one of the best bulk curry around.
Look for the discount produce section. If you work there (co-op), you can get discounts. ||2004-06-02 |
|Urban Forage - Mission ||Beautiful Dining area with candles.If you are not familar with raw foods, not filling and long wait. Expensive cause Organic. Sea Vegetable Salad, curry soup and tropical smoothis are my favorites. ||2004-06-01 |
