They don’t rush you

This place has some great vegetarian choices. Their smoothies and sandwiches are awesome.

I’ve worked from here for a few hours while selling/showing my house. I’ve also met friends here and stayed for a couple of hours. It’s near a couple of colleges so you’ll often see people eating and studying. Great place to meet and eat if you don’t want to get rushed.

Nice place

For Worcester this place is great. Lots of healthy vegan options. Got the buddha bowl with tofu and vegan pancakes. They were pretty good, nothing to rave about but at this price point I thought they were perfectly adequate. I especially liked the decor with the skylight and copious plants, which made for a calming and inviting atmosphere.

Pros: healthy, good food, nice dining area

A family favorite

We love this place. Chill atmosphere inside. Love the plants and sky lights. Super waffle and hot turmeric tea (golden milk) my two favorites. The acai bowls are delicious. They have fresh juice and juice shots. Small patio outside. If they could get the outside to vibe like inside, it would be awesome! My only issue is food is on point 88% of the time. Usually when I grab take out and order online. Some variations of the order can be off sometimes (ie. No, mayo but there was mayo or no cheese but ended up having cheese). Nothing to keep us from coming back though. We love this place.

Pros: Plenty of vegan options, Fresh Juices , Something for everyone

Cons: Inconsistent

Nice variety

Whether you want it breakfast food, a smoothie, or a grain bowl, NU Kitchen has it all. The vegan and vegetarian symbols on the menu look very similar from afar so just verify everything with your cashier for server. There is indoor and outdoor dining.

The atmosphere was nice but felt more like a fast food experience (in the line) than it did anything else. This wouldn't matter to me except for the fact the meals are crazy over priced. I'm not saying the food wasn't okay, I'm saying that the best thing about my vegan meal was the $3 avocado toast I ordered. That was the only thing I ordered that I felt was worth its price. I spent $30 on a salad, panini (for husband) toast and a SMALL SMOOTHIE that came out to almost $7 dollars. I would go again but I feel like now I know what I'd like to order and that makes all the difference at a shop like this-there are things to avoid in my opinion. Vegan, vegetarian, meat options available and I've been looking for an all inclusive dinner.

Pros: Vegan,vegetarian and meat options, Sriracha and avocado toast , Polite and friendly staff

Cons: Pricey , Menus hard to read , Crowded when busy

Unexpected find!

We were off to eat at another location and realized they were out of what we wanted. We used H.C and found this place! We had the Harvest Burrito, it hit the spot. It would have been perfect with a little more seasoning, but still really good! Thank you Happy Cow and for the reviewers!

Pros: Vegan friendly, Quaint location, plenty of seating, Awesome background music

I went here for breakfast and there were so many vegan items on the menu! Also the cashier was vegan and let me know that if you ask, they will happily make anything on the menu vegan! I got the açaí bowl and loved it! :D

Lots of Options

Formerly known as Nu Café. Boasts plenty of vegan options for smoothies, baked goods, and even hot meals. I often frequented Nu Kitchen to do school work, as many college students do. Definitely grab a hot beverage and try the Vegan Banh Mi when you get the chance.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, all delicious Quiet place f

Cons: Somewhat expensive Menu could be a bit overwhelmin
