Old Forge Pizza

Amazing old forge pizza! Plus the pumpkin pie smoothie was so good. I love this place. They have so many options: wraps, hoagies, sandwiches, burgers, desserts.

Awesome Vegan Spot in WB!

Love Eden. I have had a ton of stuff from Eden over the years and its all great. The owner is a great dude and really cares about the vegan cause. While all their food is good and you can't go wrong with anything on their menu, I specifically recommend their strombolis. The traditional vegan meats stromboli is seriously one of the best, if not the best, vegan items I have ever had anywhere. They don't always have the strombolis, but its so worth it go out of your way to get one (or 10) when they do have them. Their vegan old forge pizza is also amazing as well! So good to have an all vegan spot in Wilkes-Barre!

Pros: Stromboli! Old Forge Pizza!

Exceptional meal

I found this place after a quick search. I had a chicken sandwich with mixed veggies. This is one of the best plant based meals I have ever had outside of making my own. I’m not from the area so unfortunately this will probably be my only visit. Lots of other options that looked very tasty.

Pros: Friendly staff, Great food , Good price

Great spot for a plant based lunch!

Had a wonderful wild burger sandwich with coleslaw for lunch. Nice welcoming staff and the food was delicious. Lovely dining space!

My friend had a rice veggie dish and my husband had the “lobster” roll sandwich with mashed potatoes. Both reported liking their selection.

Nice Original Food

I had the Lobster Roll special. It was Pretty good. Fish like with coleslaw on a soft roll. Some tasty potato salad on the side. Nicely done. Definitely worth the visit.

Good Vegan Food

I thought everything was good, but I wasn't blown away by anything. I also thought the prices were a little high for the amount of food received.

Pros: Location

Super cute cafe located conveniently in Wilkes-Barre.
We did take out since we were passing through the area and saw that they had really great reviews. We ordered the Sausage & Peppers, Best of Both Worlds & the Traditional Vegan Meat Stromboli. Unfortunately the Sausage and Peppers was quite dry & the Best of Both Worlds was really lacking flavor/ seasoning. I really didn't care much for the bread that was used for the Best of Both Worlds. However the Traditional Vegan Meat Stromboli was out of this world! Omg it was so good that I wish I ordered another one.

Want this in our town

Storefront cafe with lots of seating, super sweet staff, and a huge savory comfort-food menu. Many reasons to go back. We ordered the full tray of Lindsay pizza (white pizza with chicken, spinach, olives, and mozz, $19 for a massive lunchtray-sized portion) to take a lot home and want to get the mashed potato pizza next time. 2nd location after the first in Scranton; we will visit that one too since it is within 2 hours of us. So much more on this menu that I want to try that I am very sad this isn't franchised all over. Most patrons we saw were college students from adjacent Wilkes College. I was impressed at the vegan options in this small city and will be back.

A dream come true 🥰

It is so difficult to go out to eat because you have to worry about what options if any are available for a vegan lifestyle, but when I step into Eden, all that stress and worry melts away and now I pretty much only dine out at Eden because of this!

The first time I visited, I was confused because I didn’t realize everything was vegan. Staff is always kind and patient while you decide on your order. The establishment is always clean and comfortable. The food seems to be cooked to order and there are several homemade baked goods and pre packaged snacks as well.

My personal favorite is the rabid cheeseburger!

Pros: Fully vegan, Clean + welcoming environment , Friendly staff

Delicious Food

Got takeout twice while visiting family and was quite pleased. Great selection of food and it’s not only presented nicely, but delicious. Portions are perfect and often enough for leftovers. My non-veg Dad also enjoyed it. Staff super nice too. Easy to order online. Prices are good. Good location with ample parking nearby. Will definitely be back the next time I visit.

Pros: Lots of interesting options. , Portion sizes are great, Friendly staff

Good food

I had the Italian sub which was good! I did try the buffalo pizza and did wait a little bit to try it and it was not the best. My boyfriend did get the hot ham and cheese, it looked horrible. He did get sick afterwards.

A favorite place

As a student at Kings college I'm so happy to have this place so close!! The food is delicious😄I'm a vegan and my sister is a vegetarian and we both love it here. Even my nonveggie father enjoys the food, and my other nonveggie sister loves the smoothies. The prices are good and they give you a good amount of food. The tuna and ham are my favorite but I've had burgers and hoagies as well and they're great!

Pros: Good prices, All vegan , Nonveggies love it too
