Incredible - Edit

Not only the best vegan meal I've ever had but the best meal I've ever had. Everything was so fresh and heart and elegant and flavorful. If I loved in the area, I would always go.

Pros: Delicious food, Locally sourced ingredients

I can't get enough - Edit

I wish this place had longer hours because it's so hard for me to get there after work. I have never had anything less than delicious from this place and puts non-vegan restaurants to shame. The only downside is the price tag for the portion sizes and the fact that all other food is sub par, comparatively.

Pros: Delicious, Great atmosphere, Friendly Staff

Cons: Price, Hours

amazing - Edit

I absolutely love this place! Food is amazing, I love how they don't use over-processed meat substitutes and stick to whole delicious foods. Their deserts are incredible. Only problem, I feel like whenever I go I always have to ask for more water. But that is more of a service issue. Check it out! So yummy

Pros: food , wait staff, local, whole foods

Cons: not having water refilled

A staple restaurant!! - Edit

My family and I love this place. I am vegan but the rest of my family is not- yet it maintains being a family favorite. I went here for my birthday dinner and was such a treat. Their soups are always fresh and beautifully presented. Their desserts never fail either. My favorite meal to get here is lunch because of their amazing sandwiches. The portions are quite big though so it's a good place to go with another hungry veggie lover!

First class vegan cuisine - Edit

Sprig and Vine serves the best food I have ever tasted. It just happens to be vegan. Fresh, delicious, expertly cooked, without the frying, grease, salt, and sugar that some vegan places rely on to lure in meat-eaters and "compensate" for the vegan menu. The menu changes regularly depending on what is available locally and seasonally, but it is all mouthwatering. The Za'atar Grilled Oyster Mushrooms are incredible, as are the Jasmine Seared Ricecakes with Vegetables. But really, I've never had anything bad here. One warning: don't overeat until you feel sick, as my husband and I both did on our first visit. The decor is modern and kinda zen and minimalist. The staff are super nice and very helpful in explaining the various menu options. Oh, I wish Sprig and Vine would open a restaurant in Princeton... Princeton Shopping Center has a few available spots. Lots of vegans in Princeton. How about it, guys?

Pros: GREAT FOOD, Classy decor, Friendly and helpful staff

Cons: Too far from where I live!

All time favorite - Edit

This restaurant is absolutely amazing. I grew up not too far away and both my sister and I, after moving away, became vegans. Now, every time we visit family, this is the place to go. I have numerous friends who aren't even vegetarians that swear by this restaurant. The menu changes depending on the season and the fresh ingredients. They always have gluten free options and their menu is clearly marked. I have never had anything I hadn't thoroughly enjoyed here. When my sister and I visit, we tend to share a large plate and two small plates, depending on how hungry we are. It is pricey, but if you think about what you are getting, it is fair.

Pros: NOM NOM NOM, Good to share, Great environment

Some of the best vegan food in the country - Edit

Located off the beaten path of New Hope, PA, this might be the best vegan fast casual restaurant in the country that no one knows about. I took my parents here for their mothers day brunch (we were in town for my brothers wedding), and all 4 of us enjoyed our meals. The platings were all great, the flavor combinations all worked. Being a pre fixe menu we all seemed to order different items and were able to share bites of everything. Would have loved to try their regular brunch or dinner menus as they sounded great also. Do not sleep on Sprig and Vine!

Pros: all vegan

Cons: off the beaten path

the best - Edit

This is an all vegan restaurant. I have eaten there many times over several years. Byo. Excellent food, the gold standard from which to compare any other local vegan restaurant (there are no other all vegan restaurants in the region unless you go to NYC or Philly).

Pros: all vegan, creative menus, byo

Cons: not open on Sunday darn it!

Thank You for Being There! - Edit

We really enjoy going to Sprig and Vine for breakfast or for lunch…we intend to try dinner sometime too. The portions are huge but it's always a challenge to limit ourselves to a couple of things, as the menu changes often and we always see at least four items that are calling out to us to try. Service can be a bit slow, so don't go there when you're in a hurry, but try it for those days when you just want to relax and spend some quality time with your loved ones. Fantastic roasted potato wedges and really great corn fritters…excellent vegan "biscuits and gravy", incredible sandwiches.

Pros: Unique Choices, Reasonably Priced, Friendly

Delicious Vegan BYOB - Edit

Sometimes I just crave Sprig and Vine. I love their grilled mushrooms and black eyed pea cakes. I also miss their delicious p&b&j pancakes dessert (can't have it now that I'm gluten free).

I really like how gigantic and colorful all the meals are. Every entree is accompanied by numerous sides that compliment the entree.

I will say that the service has slowed down in the past year and some of the dishes are no longer as flavorful. This is a bit disconcerting, but I'm still going to go there. Maybe someone just needs to tell the chef?

Also, I should mention that it's BYOB!!

Pros: All vegan , Delicious appetizers, Fantastic dessert

Cons: Not many gluten free options, service is slow

Great for Brunch, wouldn't recommend for dinner - Edit

This is mine and my hubby's go to place for brunch. Caution, some food is great and others meh at best. The brunch is so very delicious. I highly recommend the biscuits, fried oyster mushrooms, potatoes, and doughnuts. The doughnuts are amazing. Definitely be sure to try the doughnuts. The juices are also very fresh. I don't recommend the soups, I have yet to have one that wasn't bland. Also, most of the dinner entrees were pretty bland. All of the breakfast foods have been great but everything else seems meh. Be sure to bring singles for parking. Also, I recommend calling ahead. Twice the restaurant was closed, when it wasn't expected and we drove 40 minutes there for nothing. One time it was closed for a party the other time it was closed for a 'farmer's market'. Also, arrive well before closing. Once we arrived 20 minutes before closing and the doors were locked and no one would come over to the door. I highly recommend reservations for brunch. The servers are very nice but service is slow.

Pros: Amazing breakfast foods, Great atmosphere, Pleasant staff

Cons: slow service, dinner entrees are not amazing

TIRAMISU. YES, YES, YES! - Edit

Sprig and Vine is a nice little spot for good vegan food. I love the atmosphere, and the staff is friendly. I ordered a Roasted Cauliflower and Arugula salad for lunch, and it was sooo good! The dressing was outstanding (lime-cumin vinaigrette of some sort...). BUT the best part of it all was the tiramisu! OH MY GOSH it was AMAZING. I was really in need of a good vegan fixing of tiramisu, and this place nailed it. The coffee ice cream served beside it was also yummy! My non-vegan friend, who was with me at the time, tried it, and said it was some of the best tiramisu he's ever had. And he ordered the PB&J French Toast, which was so good he said he could not believe there were no eggs, milk, or butter in what he just ate. Although it's pretty expensive, I'd definitely come back here again.

Pros: Great food/dessert, Smells amazing when you walk in :), Nice staff

Cons: Pricey

Creative vegan fare - Edit

This is our go-to special occasion restaurant. The dishes are somewhat expensive but well worth it for the thoughtfulness of flavor combinations demonstrated. The food is vegetable based, rather than protein and fat based, so relies on interesting ingredient marriages to accentuate the flavor of the food. The service each visit has always been excellent which is becoming a rarity lately.

The grilled oyster mushrooms alone are worth the trip to New Hope. Flavorful soups and sandwiches and very friendly service.

OMG AMAZING - Edit

I love this place. It is the most delicious place ever. So much so that my family takes me here every year for my birthday. And they love it too, even though they're not vegan. I also go with friends, and we typically order everything on the menu just to "try it all". On the expensive side, but if you want to treat yourself to something delicious go try it out. Eat everything on the menu and then walk it off in downtown New Hope (lots to see for sure). I like to get brunch here as well, and get the French toast, pancakes, waffles... it's all good. Desserts are so tasty too. One of their desserts for example: pb&j French toast. (my family still talks about that one)

Not Worth the Money - Edit

This is solid advice from a twenty year vegan, full time foodie/chef who has catered for thousands of people, has consulted for several plant based restaurants and has owned plant based restaurants. So here's my story.

When I heard about Sprig and Vine I was uber excited. I had followed the story from the days of Horizon to the development of Sprig. Sprig was started by the Sous Chef of Horizons while Vedge was created by the Executive Chef. Blackbird Pizza and Hip City Vedge were also spin offs of Horizons. I have no affiliation with any of these places except that I'm a vegan.

Needless to say it has been my goal as a foodie and vegan of twenty plus years to experience all things vegan. I moved to the area in 2013 to work as a raw chef and consultant for a local national brand. Immediately I began trying the local vegan cuisine. Sprig and Vine was on a platform for me. I was sure it was going to be amazing, however the high prices were prohibitive (being a chef and former restaraunteer I know what price points are acceptable) and a turn off.

Our waiter acted as he was above us. I tried to inform him of my background and about tell him how excited I was to eat there, but he was rude and didn't seem to care. On top of that we were the only ones dining so he could have given his full attention to us.

We decided that we wanted to order starters, soup, salad and an entree. We asked for suggestions but the waiter seemed ill informed. We began with the mushroom starter. It was ok but was burnt, I presume it was supposed to "fire roasted" but they came off as burnt. After that we received our soups. We ordered one soup special and the house soup. Both were flavorless and tasted SOUR AS IF THEY WERE OLD. It was horrible. Next came our salad. The salad was fairly amazing, no complaints there. Finally our entree arrived.

The entree was flavorless and made with frozen corn and peas (not the advertised fresh local fare) and was way overpriced. Basically it was $23.00 for frozen corn, frozen peas, fire roasted tomatoes and grits. We even had to pay extra for a side of potatoes. It was a complete rip off. I wouldn't return with someone else's money. The sad thing is, as a vegan I love to support vegan restaurants, but this place gives vegans a bad name.

butikiteas 18 May 2014 - Definitely agree on the entrees and soup being bland. Try the brunch (specifically breakfast items), they are delicious. Almost like a different restaurant.

Great for any Special Occasion - Edit

We have eaten here about 6 times for dinner, and have always been pleased. The entire menu is "pure vegetarian" which means "vegan" to most people, but I really love that twist on the name as they chose it. We had appetizers that included falafel with a black bean tahini sauce, and grilled oyster mushrooms. They were outrageously fantastic! For dinner we tried summer paella, grilled fresh local tofu, risotto balls, and an eggplant dish. The entrees and soups change seasonally. The salads -local corn and blueberry was awesome- were large, fresh and had light and delicious dressings. The desserts range from cheeses cake to brownie type items, served with house made ice cream. This place is a real gem. We brought 4 carnivores and they left happy. The place has a peaceful, new, zen vibe on the quiet side except for Friday and Saturday nights. Oh and you'll need a reservation for evenings and groups bigger than 2. BYO. Get ready for some oyster mushrooms - smoky and "meaty."

Pros: Beautiful presentation, Beautiful decor, Seasonal menu

Cons: Call ahead for a reservation, Can be a little oily

Absolute Gem! - Edit

I have eaten here several times for lunch, dinner and once for brunch. The food and service has always been wonderful. Food is creative, fresh and portions perfect! Love the tempeh reuben! Parking lot is big and a pleasure compared to trying to find on street parking in New Hope! It is one of my favorite places to bring someone!

Pros: Quality of food , Friendly service, Nice simple ambiance

Cons: Desserts are just okay

Guaranteed good food - Edit

My wife and I have been there on numerous occasions and have never had anything that was not great. The menu is seasonal, since they buy most of their ingredients locally. It's one of our favorite places, we don't have to go all the way to Philadelphia or New York to find excellent vegan food.

Some of the Best Brunch - Edit

Sprig and Vine makes gourmet vegan food, and although it's a little pricey, it's a better value than most gourmet places in NYC or Philadelphia.

The Sunday brunch has been my best experience there. Great French toast, tofu Benedict or biscuits with fried oyster mushrooms. I've only had a dinner there twice, but each time was very good food that leaves with a good amount of flavor to explore. The dishes are unique and do some interesting things with vegetables without using any mock meat products. Definitely a place I'll be back to soon.

Pros: Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere

Wonderful food and ALL VEGAN - Edit

A non-veg friend recommended Spring and Vine to me because she'd had a great meal there before. I loved not having to make changes to my order and worry if some dairy or eggs are hidden in my meal somewhere.

It's a small menu but most things seemed appetizing to me. I had the pecan-squash ravioli and it was fantastic. Highly flavorful and served on a bed of sweet potatoes, apples, oyster mushrooms, and lots of other good stuff. I wish I could've eaten more of it but I was full. My friend had roasted butternut squash atop jasmine rice with wheatberries and other things. She said it was great too, and it looked it. I wish we weren't too full for dessert.

The place is tiny so make reservations. It's a nice-looking place though. My only gripe is that I wish the prices were a little lower. I would rate it 4.5 if I could.

Pros: Awesome food, Big portions, All-vegan

Cons: Pricey

Delicious Food, But a Little Pricey - Edit

My wife and I ate here for lunch and were both more than pleased with the quality of the food. I ordered the Tempeh Reuben and she ordered the Eggplant Banh Mi. We also split an order of the Zucchini & Black-Eyed Pea Griddle Cakes. I've never had a Reuben before so I have nothing to compare it to, but I was glad I ordered it. The Banh Mi was even better and is probably the best sandwich I've had in quite some time. I thought $34 was pretty steep for two of us for lunch, but the food was definitely unique and delicious.

Pros: Tasty Food, Nice Atmosphere

Cons: A Tad Overpriced, Parking, Limited Menu
