amazing - Edit

Amazing food, well presented & delish, lovely space for communal table dining (yes you will talk to your neighbors). Server was great but MissRachel herself came out to meet us after!

Pros: pre pay required, so no need to fuss with cash or

Cons: limited seating / rsvp required

Amazing food - Edit

This is mostly catering but she does have some special 6 course dinners, also cooking classes. Her food is just amazing. If you have the opportunity to eat here, do!

Vegan fine dining with soul - Edit

This is mainly a catering business but they also host Saturday evening communal farmhouse table dinners. Six courses, BYOB, $63 tax/person (includes gratuity). The food is FANTASTIC but the company can be mixed, since the table seats 12 and you never know who else will be dining with you that night. Bring your SO and/or friends and enjoy some mouth-watering eats in this cozy space. Check the calendar and make a reservation 2 weeks in advance.

You can also rent out the space for a private party, either as a 6-course dinner for 12 or a cocktail party for 20.

During the winter holidays, Miss Rachel's Pantry also offers meals to go, both as individual plates and to-go catering trays. This is a life-saving option for those whose holidays are stressful enough without worrying about putting together a scrumptious vegan meal.

Pros: Delicious food, Amazing staff, Cozy atmosphere

Miss Rachel's Pantry FTW - Edit

Often one may not realize a profound moment until it is gone, thus their only memory is a remembrance rather than immediate understanding. This was the case for ecoRDN after a perfectly executed dining experience. True story, perfection is an abstract concept but it is possible during dining so bear with us as we #dinesplain. There are only so many variables when going out to eat and many can be reduced to binaries i.e., good food/bad food, good service/bad service, etc. Yet sometimes food stars align and dining plantophiles find their own end of rainbow nosh oases. Miss Rachel’s inspirited plant cuisine topped more best lists than ecoRDN knew we had. The most flavorful love inspired foods prepared amid an amazing buzz from a beautiful staff. Flawless execution in terms of tastes, textures and appearances. ecoRDN will make it simple: do you want arguably the most fully realized plant based mac and cheese ever? Go to Miss Rachel’s Pantry, dummy!


Pros: Amazing Food, Amazing Staff, Fully Realized, Best Vegan Mac-n-Cheese EVER!!!, All Plant-Based

Not that great - Edit

I'm really not that impressed. Nothing was bad, but nothing was great. Vedge really puts this place to shame, but somehow has lower reviews.

Everything is amazing!! - Edit

I've eaten breakfast here and gotten food to go, and both times it's been some of the most delicious vegan food I've eaten. The restaurant is definitely unassuming and has one, big family style table, so it's not necessarily a place I'd go for a standard sit-down meal. If you want delicious vegan food though, you really can't go wrong! The vegan grilled cheese steak on challah bread had to have been one of the best tasting sandwiches I've had in the past few years. You really can't go wrong here!

Fantastic find! - Edit

Helpful/knowledgeable staff, delicious food and rustic charm. Definitely worth the hassle of trying to find parking on these tiny streets.

My Last Meal Would Come from Miss Rachel's! - Edit

After years of wanting to eat at Miss Rachel's, my cousin and I met there for lunch today. I ordered the grilled cheese and peach sandwich on homemade challah - and it was one of the best things I've ever eaten. Truly, it would be my request for a last meal. The mazoh ball soup was also yummy - and my cousin enjoyed the big salad. The staff was among the nicest I've ever encountered - with Miss Rachel being as kind and humble a chef as you'll ever meet. This is my new favorite lunch spot - even though I'll have to drive across the city to get there.

Pros: Incredible food!, Super-nice staff/vibe, Goodies available for sale

Best Vegan in Philadelphia! - Edit

I've had the pleasure of sitting at the farm table on many occasions, both for dinners and weekend brunch. We've also purchased meals from Miss Rachel. This lady can cook! From comfort food to fancy dishes it's all delish and kosher! Very conscious of allergies so don't worry if you are gluten free, she's got you covered. Also a fantastic caterer. She does it all!!

Make reservations for the farm table dinner. Brunch is a walk in. The place is cute just like Miss Rachel herself !

Pros: Local , Gluten free options, Vegan

Cons: Too far from my job to get lunch

Food with a soul - Edit

Not only did Miss Rachel caterer our wedding and have all of our carne guests swooning, her new location is simply amazing. Her staff is so sweet and helpful, she knows and meets all her guests, and her food, it merges comfort and tradition with soul, love, and no animals harmed. I took a job in the city just so I could stop here more! Her Mac and cheese and matzo ball soup are divine, her grilled cheese with buffalo tempeh left me smiling with each bite! This is an absolute must stop for philly eating, vegan or not!

Ishani 19 Sep 2016 - i personally am turned off by the name "Buffalo" tempeh...i think many vegans might feel the same...it turns my stomach...i think they ought to change the name, they would probably sell more...

Love the farm table and the food - Edit

This place is always a win. You have to make reservations for the small farm house dinner if seats are available, but it is definitely worth it. The farm house dinner was very filling and satisfying. Come hungry! Brunch is a win too with no reservations needed. Menu always changes. Love the variety. Rachel and everyone working there have always been welcoming.

Pros: Friendly, Welcoming, Great food

Great spot! - Edit

I come here at least a couple times a month for breakfast foods, they're priced decently enough and real tasty.

Best Vegan Everything!!! Don't miss Brunch! - Edit

I've been eating Miss Rachael's for several years, I've enjoyed the Lunch Meal Delivery, breakfast biscuit sandwiches at the old West Passyunk location, Catering, Saturday Night dinner and regularly there for brunch in the cafe on weekends, so far absolutely everything has been amazing over all the years. The Saturday night dinner I was lucky to attend was probably the best sit down dinner of my life, everything Vegan and everything amazing!!! I am absolutely in love with the grilled cheeses available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and all of the wonderful hand pies and knishs.
Stop by on a Friday Saturday or Sunday for breakfast/lunch and then start booking them for all your special occasions and vegan catering needs and invite me so I can eat everything and make sure there are no leftovers!!

Pros: Vegan Kosher, super friendly, food is amazing!!

Vegan taco night! ohhhh yeah! - Edit

You cant beat that! Hopefully they have more of these coming up soon. It was great! The place is cozy but lots of windows and not in a bad part of the city. Parking is possible unlike most places in philly!

Pros: Quality, Atmosphere, Price

Cons: none

big fan of the "meals at home!" - Edit

My husband and I are regulars! Menu changes every week. You can order main dishes (small and large casserole sizes), a salad option (which I haven't tried yet, but from reading the descriptions, they sound like they're packed with yummy ingredients like seasonal veggies and fruits), a special soup, and sweets too. Everything is very flavorful and hearty - and totally vegan!! My favorites have been the fettuccine, the BBQ seitan, and the chickpea curry quinoa dish.

Wonderful dining experience - Edit

My wife & I and a friend of ours went for the Saturday night farm table dinner and it was fantastic! Vegan food which rivals Vedge served in a wonderful setting. Great service by a friendly staff. You also meet some very nice people with whom you share the table.

Pros: Great vegan fare, Amazingly good service

Cons: None Everything was fantastic!

Saturday Evening Dinner - Edit

In early January,we enjoyed a great 4 course dinner at a table with 11 other interesting people. There were 2 choices for each course so we tried 1 of each.Nice presentations.One dish had fabulous "Bacon" (made with coconut). Dinner was a leisurely 2 hours with BYOB welcome.

Pros: interesting food, great servers

Cons: not inexpensive(but worth the $$)

darling - Edit

Pros: tasty food, friendly folks, good prices
