The food tasted great and for the money you get a good amount even the smoothies and juices were not bad priced compared to other places. The counter service was a bit cramped but for vegan food that's a good thing to see.

Pros: price, selection
Cons: ordering space

Cheap Eats

4 Posted on 11 / 06 / 2009

Stayed with a friend who lives around the block from here, so we are here like 5 times last week. The food was pretty good, like home-cooking. The "chicken legs" were good. The mac'n'cheez was really good. The veggies are really good too. The serving area is way to narrow to be safe and if you don't know to move to the back, the locals have no problem cutting you out. If you have questions, the people are usually nice, but you can't hear them over the 5' high counter.
But yea, good cheap vegan eats.
Don't bother with the pizza, it's a packaged crust with no flavor that they reheat for you.

Pros: Prices, Homestyle food, Mac n cheez
Cons: Serving area, Say no to the pizza

I love this place!

I am not a fan of counter service and hate standing on line....... I always prefer a menu and sit down service.........BUT....... this restaurant is the exception! Great variety, plentiful food, great prices, and the dinning area is large and comfortable. I love to go there!

Pros: excellent selection of vegan entrees, inexpensive, comfortable seating
Cons: counter service

The place for fresh juice in Harlem

4 Posted on 04 / 13 / 2009

The menu features dozens and dozens of choices of smoothies and fresh squeezed juices. There is also counter service of hot and cold vegan dishes, which are quite good although portions were a bit small. Service is reasonably fast and friendly. Great prices, highly recommended.

Pros: Good prices, Amazing juice

Best veggie food in Harlem

5 Posted on 11 / 30 / 2008

NYC is a great place to be vegan, but it's not always cheap. Uptown Juice Bar is one of the best vegan bargains in NYC. For about $9 you can get more food than the average person can eat in one sitting, and it's delicious. The bbq drumsticks are delicious, as are the greens and everything else I've tried.

Some of the best food in Manhattan. Period.

5 Posted on 02 / 13 / 2007

All 100% vegan! The barbecue soy drumsticks are by far the best mock meat I've ever tasted. There is an overwhelming variety of menu options -- ethnic and American staples, including yummy chickpeas, collard greens, curried potatoes, brown rice, stuffed peppers, many styles of mock meats -- which makes it hard to choose. But since all of the entrees are wholesome and tasty, you can't go wrong. Also, the servings are very generous.

Uptown Juice Bar is about a 25 minute walk from Columbia campus. The place is always bustling, and the staff are friendly. The serving area is a bit narrow and can become crowded, but there is a bright and comfortable dining area in the back. Definitely worth the trip uptown!

Pros: hearty and healthy, comfort foods, excellent value
