First Review by cookiemonster

cozy with a great menu - Edit

Perfect place to have dinner after being out in the cold all day. I ordered the un-chicken parmesan with penne with the cashew cheese instead of the daiya (not a fan of daiya) and it was really good. The cashew cheese is a paste so it was served on the side. Perfect cozy comfort food.

Great vegan food with generous portions - Edit

I went there twice with a friend and we both really liked the place. The food is varied and very good, generous in terms of size and affordable. They also have amazing cakes. The staff is friendly and the restaurant has good vibes. I will definitely come back here!

Pros: very good food, generous portions, friendly staff, good vibes

I heartily recommend it! - Edit

We had lunch there and we were lucky because we got a table directly when we arrived. It looked like a popular place with any type of people eating there (tourists, locals, couples, friends, families...). Friendly staff, fast service, good and healthy food. We had an avocado and tempeh sandwich, a roasted potato pizza and a cookie (this one to go). We really enjoyed this simple but delicious and healthy lunch, specially in a country where it is not that easy to find. Also if you are a tourist and walk a lot during the day, you appreciate it. Nice atmosphere, not noisy even being in central Manhattan. Average prices in NY.

Pros: Delicious, tasty, healthy, Central, Nice atmosphere

delicious vegan fare - Edit

this place is so delicious--a great menu too. some items are crazily over-priced tho. if you have a sweet tooth, you NEED to make an appearance here. everything is unbelievable!!!! would be 5 stars if it wasn't for all the items on the menu that i can't afford.

Pros: amazing deserts, great service , tasty food

Cons: 10$ for 4 dumplings when they're 10 for 2$ in the , wait for a table can be long...

Food is Fabulous! - Edit

The food here is amazing. I used to love their sweets and croissants, but they stopped making a lot of the ones I liked, and the ones they have just don't compare to how great they were when they initially opened these restaurants. And it is a bit expensive. I would eat there more often if it were more affordable. The food is pretty fabulous, though.

Yummyfood - Edit

We had the Veggie burger with fries, and it was... really tasty! Not just a little and simple burger. We really enjoyed it.
Our daughter chose the sushi dish, good if you want a light and super healthy meal.
Then we had the chocolate avocado mousse pie - a delicious raw dessert! Loved it.
The coffee was good too and in a great quantity. I'm more used to Italian little espresso cups so this one was a full mug.

We though the prices were a little expansive (15usd for the veggie burger) but the quality and quantity make the place worth the visit.

Friendly staff too, always reffilling the glasses of water.

Pros: Delicious food, Big servings, Great service

Cons: Needs greater budget than other burger restaurants

Best vegan burger I've ever had - Edit

Not only was their burger the best tasting vegan burger I've ever tasted, it made me feel very full but still light and like i'd had a healthy meal. They also have an amazing cake selection and there is generally a nice atmosphere created by the fact there is a diverse customer base.

Pros: Burger, Cakes, People

Cons: None

great! - Edit

I've been here twice, but I've been to the location downtown several times. He last time I went, it was packed! The chickpea fries are amazing, as our the unchicken fingers. The vegan cheeseburger is ok - it's just a gardein patty, but it has avocado, sprouts, etc that make it pretty yummy. The seitan in the medallion sandwich is very tasty, but maybe overpowered by arugula. Other favorites include the chicken pot pie, the clam sauce linguine, and the unchicken parm.

great spot - Edit

Dropped by for a quick take out sammie. Place is clean and well decorated. Nice waiting area for take out with reading material and the confection display case to drool over. Staff were super friendly and service was lightning quick. The sandwich itself was a delight. Nicely crisped panini focaccia with generous amounts of mushrooms, aioli, pesto, and greens. Not greasy at all and very filling. Will be back soon!

Pros: friendly folks, delicious food, light and tasty

Lovely uptown cafe, Tasty food - Edit

We had a lovely brunch here that was filling and tasty. It's smaller and has a more informal relaxed feel to it compared to the downtown peacefood cafe. Definitely worth visiting both places. The staff were very friendly and happy to recommend dishes. The caesar salad was very yummy!

Pros: great food, reasonable prices

Cons: can't think of one

Best of the Best - Edit

Everything about Peacefood is magical, from the decor, to the wait staff, to the divine food. The popular Shanghai pan seared dumplings are legendary. We also love the Japanese roasted pumpkin sandwich on delicious bread. With all the good vegan eateries in NY, this is our favorite.

Beautiful place, people and food - Edit

We dropped by during a busy day and loved the choice of food on the menu, the friendly, attentive staff and the atmosphere. I tend not to drink enough water and the staff there make sure they keep everyone's glasses topped up so there's no need to ask or have the awkward conversation that sometimes happens in places - 'can I have some water?' 'a bottle?' 'no, just tap water, thanks' (!)

Lovely variety of desserts too. I find in many places that I'm spending money on things I could probably whip up much cheaper at home, so I like to find vegan food that is less commonly found when eating out, like raw cheesecakes and tiramisu and this place did not disappoint. We may have eaten slightly too much...

Pros: Amaxing variety of food, Beautiful staff - friendly, attentive, smiley, Lovely building and atmosphere

Cons: Some things a little pricey but good choices

Very good! - Edit

Was our first meal in New York and we cane very hungry and Jet lagged for breakfast,had a wonderful breakfast,was a bit disappointed by the misleading menu as it mentioned a chorizo omelette dish and it came without it,when I asked they said they took it out a few weeks ago but it's still on the menu..
Aside from that everything else was delicious I would however not order the pizza it came with some mushroom paste on it.
It's all about finding the right dish for you and there are plenty of options here.

Pros: Friendly , Many tables, Good food and service

Cons: Missing that fine tuning that will make it great, lack of attention to details, Laid back where it shouldn't be

Phenomenal - Edit

I was so impressed by everything there. It was my very first entirely vegan higher-end eatery! Food was great, atmosphere was great, the take-out accommodations were great. Everything was so good even my parents (who are very skeptical of veganism) were impressed.

I ate lunch here once and dinner here once. Both meals were tasty and service was efficient. We had hot chocolates too. Yum! We also tried their cakes which were delicious but I did feel that I might burst!
