487 Cambridge St, Allston, USA


06 May 2010

Haven't been there since January, but I loved it. They use daiya cheese which is soy-free and melts like real cheese. Dessert was great too. If you miss pizza that tastes like pizza since becoming vegan, you HAVE to try this place. Uninteresting decor, but with the good food and friendly staff, you won't care.

Good food

06 May 2010

My partner and I really enjoyed this place. It's pretty small and we were at a cozy table right next to the door in January, so we were cold, but the food was very good. I had a the peanut curry on the coconut rice and definitely recommend it. Ditto to the other reviews-the brownies were awesome!

Very pleasant experience

06 May 2010

I really enjoyed my evening in Kansas City because of this place. They have an unusual vegan butter which I found was Earth Balance sweetened with a little agave on fresh bread. The menu is creative and changes nightly. I had a quinoa with greens and white grapes which was magnificent and some kind of delightful chocolate dessert. I'm surprised at the reviews that made an issue out of it being in a church. I'm not a church-goer, but first of all, it's Unity church which, if you don't know, is not your typical church-they're not going to be chasing you down with pamphlets or anything. Second, if you were blindfolded until you got to your table, you'd never know you were in a church. This is a restaurant, ignore the building. And if you're not intimidated by the word "church", there's a very nice bookstore on the other side of the building with primarily eastern spiritual philosophies. And they won't chase you down with pamphlets over there either.

Try the Sunday brunch

05 May 2010

It took me a couple of visits to warm up to this place. It's not totally vegan, except on vegan night, and the space for food options is small, so the night I went, I didn't feel like there were enough options for the price. But I've since fallen in love with the Sunday brunch and will get to Vegan night as soon as I can. The pancakes are amazingly light and fluffy, the tofu scramble and potatoes are tasty and they make a vegan hot salsa that is awesome. One of the turnoffs is that everything they serve on is disposable, which is due to the fact that they don't have a kitchen large enough to wash the amount of dishes that they would produce. Since it is a buffet, health codes require you to take a new plate each time you go up, so the landfill garbage that is produced is a little painful to consider. I did find out last time I was there, however, that they will allow you to bring your own plates and use the sink to wash them, which is a great solution. We're going to do that next time we go.

Wow-This place is outstanding!

05 May 2010

Creative menu, friendly service, comfortable atmosphere and something for even the non-vegans who met us there and were equally in awe of the quality of the food. This place will raise the bar for Vegan restaurants.

my 2nd favorite restaurant in SF-all vegan!

05 May 2010

I love this place. I know some of my SF friends think it's just ok, but I've never been disappointed in anything I've eaten there and the staff has always been friendly. My partner and I enjoy it so much that on our trip this past weekend, we went straight there for breakfast from the airport. I recommend the vegan donuts, the tofu scrambles, the pancakes, the roasted almonds and the lemongrass noodles. I also enjoy the mac and cheese, though it has a strong nutritional yeast flavor that my partner isn't a fan of, especially since we've discovered daiya cheese and can make great mac and cheese at home. The restaurant is cozy, but it's SF after all and I enjoy the fruit and veg photos that decorate the place. This is my "2nd" favorite place only because a new restaurant-Gracias Madre has better atmosphere and a changing menu.

Can't wait to go back

22 May 2011

This place is fabulous. Staff was really friendly.

My partner and I split a breakfast burrito and an avocado sandwich. The breakfast burrito was huge and filled with beans, eggs and vegetables with an amazing layering of flavors. The avocado sandwich was light and refreshing. They are prepared to make vegan just about everything on the menu as they have tofu and vegan cheese ready to go. The desserts looked enticing, but we were too full to try. Looking forward to going back again.

Pomegranate doesn't have a sign from the street and we were visiting from Tucson so it was a little tricky to find. It's in the same plaza as the Safeway back in the corner next to a yoga studio, so just look for that.

A really nice surprise

05 May 2010

When you see it, it looks like an old pizzeria, so you don't expect much when you walk inside. We had breakfast there both days we were in Sebastopol and it was great. They have a tofu omelette, which is unusual and the servers were incredibly friendly. The waffles and pancakes weren't my favorite: the waffle was just the right size, but kind of hard; and the pancakes were a little dryer than I would have liked. But the tofu omelette (I had the Greek, which had black and green olives-yum), the potatoes and even the toast were really yummy. The have soy cheese for us vegans too, which is so much better then most places that make it vegan by just leaving off the cheese. Our only regret was that we weren't able to go back for dinner to try some of those air fries!

Grilled Cheese for Grown Ups

17 Mar 2013

My partner and I love this place, especially when we are attending an event downtown. We go early and enjoy gourmet grilled cheese and a glass of wine or beer. Their coffee isn't my favorite, but everything else leaves me feeling warm and fuzzy inside. I love the double cream brie, apple, walnut and fig jam sandwich with a Pinot Noir and my partner usually does a "create your own" with Welsh Cheddar, avocado and some other things I can't remember, with a beer. Somebody complained about their portions, but I think their portions are well worth the money as the food is rich and filling. But we like to save money too and often go during happy hour where most things are half priced. The staff is always friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. Free wi-fi too.

Not to be missed!

07 Jun 2011

Updated for visit on June 2, 2011. This place has amazing food. This time we had a Kale Salad appetizer, then a trio of entrees and a banana split. My mom, who is not a vegan and thinks it's all a little strange had a caesar salad and really enjoyed it. About that trio of entrees, there's a menu item where by you can choose smaller portions of 3 entrees and it comes with a soup or salad and the whole thing is enough for 2 people. Considering we were visiting from out of town and the whole menu looked good, that gave us a chance to try everything. The zuchini pasta pesto was my favorite and along with it we had the daily collard wrap and the burrito. For dessert, the banana split. Our server gave us each a shot glass of his favorite smoothy concoction on the house and it was fabulous too. Definitely check this place out.

Great food at a great price

05 May 2010

This is one of my favorite places in Tucson. It's not vegetarian, but is unusually Veg-friendly and specifically makes Vegan Tamales. I've become addicted to the Curry Tamale and the medium green salsa. And the prices are cheap enough that I don't feel bad about going there often. You can also get tamales to go in easy to microwave bags. Their hours are not wide open, so check their website before you go.
