Everyone of us absolutely loved our food, and none of us are vegetarians. Service was great as well. We'll definitely go back.

Just a wonderful diner with the best shakes in town. The vegan options are extensive, but the wait can run up to 30 minutes. Located on Mass Ave between MIT and Harvard. Go there for an amazing vegan experience.

These guys do all your fav sandwiches, burgers, appetizers in vegetarian and vegan versions. Veggie poutine fries, cheese steaks, buffalo wings, just a few examples. If you are a vegetarian and used to seitan you’ll love this food. Great spicing and sauces.

Friendly service and a nice bright and clean restaurant. The Shepherd's Pie was delicious, as was the Galaxy Burger. The Reuben was also delicious, but definitely needed more sauerkraut. Will definitely come back to try some of the other dishes and the breakfast food.More

My 3 star rating is based solely on the atmosphere and service. The food is good and there is an amazing selection for vegetarians and vegans. The atmosphere, however, is loud and crowded and cramped. Plus, our server just didn't seem to care. It took...More

Street parking only, which is a nightmare because it's right on Mass. Ave. Take the Red Line, as it's only steps away from the Mass Ave. stop. Driving into that area is madness.
