deceptively good - Edit

Definitely the old timer amongst the surrounding areas vegan restaurants. Not as trendy or fancy but BY FAR the tastiest vegan fare around ❤️❤️❤️

Pros: flavorful food, extensive menu, gluten free options

Cons: small, tight space , servers can be grouchy

Beat Seitan in NJ - Edit

A tiny cafe that offers a large and broad menu meeting the needs of all types of vegans. Mostly a sandwich and salad stop, it has worldly number of different types of choices.
The setian bowl is my favorite, but they run daily specials all the time. A bit pricey, but the food is great. The sandwiches suffer from way too much bread and too little in between.
One of, if not the best vegan cafe in NJ.

Pros: numerous types of choices, great taste, daily specials

Cons: desserts are forgettable , cookies and snacks are on the old/dry side, very limited seating

Nirvana Near the Navesink - Edit

I've eaten here for years. It is one of the best vegetarian/vegan/deli restaurants in New Jersey, The quality of the food is excellent. The menu offers lots of items (including gluten free and raw). They offer some impressive desserts. There are also a bunch of different baked items for sale. The staff is always friendly and it is located right near the center of town.

Pros: Food quality, menu breadth, very clean, cool bathr

Cons: moderately priced

wow! - Edit

Ordered the buffalo tempeh wings and they were spicy and delicious. A little on the salty side, but once dipping them in the vegan ranch sauce it goes away ;)
Would definitely return to try other items on the list.

the best - Edit

Vegan crack. But high-quality crack. Gotta check out the Crunch Wrap breakfast burrito. Everything here is phenomenal, and because it's crack we keep coming back. Addicted.

Delila is the best waitress!

Large ALL vegan menu :) - Edit

Their menu is great and the food is even better. Very large menu with various items ranging from appetizers to desserts. All the food is prepared fresh and taste delicious. It can get very busy during certain times and you may have to wait, but its worth it :)

Pros: large menu

Cons: small seating area

There's a good reason that vegans smile when you mention Good Karma. It's simply the best, hands down.

AMAZING FOOD - Edit

Ive been to a handful of vegan restaurants since becoming vegetarian, and I have to tell you, this one beats em all by a long shot. I've tried 3 different entrées as well as 2 appetizers and the cheesecake for dessert. It was all flawless, the kind of food you scrape the bottom of your plate for to ensure you've devoured every last bit of flavor and crumb.
I Highly recommend this joint, and will definitely return again. Happy Cow Approved :)

Tacos?!?!?!?!??!!!??!!! - Edit

Pros:
-the juice & twinkies were great
Cons:
-the tacos*** Were slices of mildly warm tofu on cabbage. Did not look like a slight resemblance of a taco.
-the lasagna has something sour/pungent inside and was therefore inedible. When I told them this they replied "have you had it before?"
-the buffalo tenders were almost ok, if they weren't cold.
-they forgot to give me my soup & Twinkie.
-they did not offer utensils or napkins.

Awesome food! - Edit

My friend and I are not from this area but we decided to stop by to grab some lunch since we were nearby. This was our first time at Good Karma and it definitely exceeded our expectations. We shared a slice of their krusty krab pizza and it was amazing! She ordered a southwestern bowl and I had the kimchee bowl and they were both delicious. We will definitely be making the 1 hr and a half trip again to try some more items off the menu.

Favorite Vegan place in New Jersey - Edit

This is by far my favorite place in New Jersey for vegan food! So far everything I have gotten from there has been amazing. I've stopped by for some shakes too after a workout at the local crossfit gym, and it was glorious! I've tried a few of the baked goods, awesome, some of the unbaked goods, awesome. I've also tried their raw and baked entrees. Perfect!

Only downside is that everyone knows this place rocks, so it can get crowded fast and super busy. So I would recommend coming during off hours or ordering for pick up. Maybe one day they will move to a bigger location.

Pros: Excellent Food

Cons: Super small, very popular/busy

perf - Edit

my partner and i will drive two hours to eat here- the food is SO GOOD. i have been to countless restaurants that serve raw food and feel as if good karma has spoiled me.... wish they had more locations (currently thinking about the raw nachos and salivating....)

Pros: amazing food, huge portions, so many options

Cons: small dining area, very busy whenever i am there

Great - Edit

The food was great especially the black bean soup. I had the Vegan lasagna and it was light and loved the cream they used in it, as well as the Parmesan crisps. The live lemonade was amazing. Great place for vegan food.

All good things... - Edit

...come in small packages. And this place is no exception. It's a very, very small place. They don't do reservations or call ahead seating so your best bet is to plan to wait for a half hour (during the busier times it can easily go over an hour), swing by to put your name/number down, and do something else until they call you. Be prepared to dine in close proximity to all the other guests, which has it's pros/cons, depending on your personality type. The food is excellent. They are constantly updating the menu and offering up delicious specials. The steak sandwich is pretty good...I like that they don't use Daiya cheese and instead use their own, homemade cheese. Everything I've tried there has been delicious, including the desserts.

Also, parking can be a pain. There is no lot so you have to find a spot on the street. It's all worth it though!

Pros: Food, Friendly staff

Cons: Small, Parking
