Different than typical - Edit

I'm getting to know the menu more each time I go, trying different combinations and sides. Their vegan food will satisfy folks who prefer more rich or "cheesy" fare. There are also salads and veggies, for those who are looking for lighter flavors. Everything is made to order and take out is popular here. Decor is not fancy, focus is on the food and a place where it's easy to relax. Prices are about average for good vegan food.

Pros: friendly vibe, clean, generous servings

Cons: not open weekends so come when you can during the

Even better than last time (and last time was great) - Edit

I went when it first opened and we loved the sandwiches and the salads. Again today we got a sandwich, a wrap, and a salad. Everything is fresh and cooked to order, and delicious. It takes about 10 minutes to get your grub so plan ahead if needed. Really great service, too.

Pros: Tastes great, Cooked to order, Very pro-community

Cons: Not open everyday so check ahead

casual all vegan community shop - Edit

Started by people wanting to bring vegan food and awareness to Oakland in a genuine community sandwich shop, the Veg Hub is new, open limited hours, and sometimes out of menu items, but even then the owner/chef's passion and tasty, affordable food make it worth a visit. It's more targeted at non-vegans so the food is presented to not look super healthy, but there are plenty of veggies to be had if you want. Portions are large. Everything is tasty, although it has been on the salty side for my taste. Inside is very casual, with picnic-style tables and card games available. It's very friendly and relaxed. Can't wait for them to grow up as a restaurant and offer smooth delivery/takeout, more seating, full menu all the time, and expanded hours!

Can't believe how delicious this place is! - Edit

Second time ordering from here. I ordered the sandwich of Dutch Crunch bread with Philly Cheese Steak with BBQ sauce and a side of cheese fries. Their cheese here is just so yummy! It has a little bitter after taste but delicious nonetheless. I had to introduced my family and friend and they loved it as well!

A new favorite! - Edit

Had the chicken with jalapeño ranch, and tried my friend's bbq Philly cheesesteak. Both were amazing! The Pellegrino sodas are also a delight, I recommend the prickly pear. I'm sad I can't give more than 5 stars. Out of the multitudes of vegan restaurants I've eaten at in my travels, this ranks right up at the top!!

Pros: Flavor , Options , Price

love love love - Edit

This restaurant is amazing!!! The quality and taste of their food is just fantastic. I would go over and over again. I believe everything is homemade? I love their chicken melt on dutch crunch bread. Their chicken and macaroni and cheese is really good too. It's the perfect price and they give hefty portions. I would recommend to all vegans and non-vegans!

Pros: the food is prepared quickly , nice atmosphere , beautiful decor

VegHub does Vegan eating Justice - Edit

This Oakland based "food-social" start up truly does vegan eating Justice! We had the pleasure of visiting their newly opened brick and mortar cafe during their soft opening, with only sandwiches and some sides available. The food was so deliciously good that we are looking forward to the planned January 15 grand opening, when the menu will be expanded to include plated dinners, with neighborhood delivery as a dining option. Order at the counter, and watch your meal being prepped in the open kitchen concept. You decide your sandwich base, choosing type of bread - wrap, quesadilla, gluten free or a no-bread organic salad blend option, in which you choose the veggies from the salad bar on which to build your base. Next add your topping, from a seitan Philly cheese melts (steak classic, Italian, Bar-B-Q, spinach mushroom) to Gourmet Chicken (fried, jalapeño ranch, mozarella, sweet teriyaki). Extras/sides offered were hubster fries, cheese steak fries, hubster nachos, sesame kale salad, chips.
My spinach mushroom sandwich on the organic salad blend base was sublimely good; well seasoned sautéed seitan, spinach, mushrooms & mozarella topping fresh kale, greens, broccoli, cranberries & a sprinkling of nuts. A very generous portion side of cheesesteak fries was shared with others, who enjoyed their show string cut as much as I did. One of my companions praised his choice of the Bar-B-chew as a wrap as being delicious. Our other diner, who stubbled upon the cafe while in the neighborhood the week before, & recommended it to us for lunch, enjoyed his quesadilla based cheesesteak.
Service was friendly, knowledgeable & quick, despite everything being freshly prepped as ordered. It was the cashier's first day, & despite his nervousness as a trainee, he got most of our orders right, & remained positive, which contributed to the relaxed atmosphere. The VegHub's socially responsible business plan focuses on the educational ethics of serving good, healthy vegan food, while offering cooking classes to families & kids, an after-school program for the kids & jobs in the area, with future profits being shared on community projects. Ingredients are locally sourced as much as possible, much of it being made in-house. No parking lot, yet ample on street metered parking out front and nearby. Conviently located near Fruitvale exit off I-580. Small, neat, very clean cafe, well lit.

Pros: Delicious tasty, innovative vegan comfort food, Friendly, knowledgeable, accomodatiing service, Affordable, 100% vegan

Cons: Limited menu during soft opening, Metered on street parking
