Go to Veg for the crepe of a lifetime! - Edit

Since my spouse and I have been vegans for since 1991 and 1991 respectively, we cannot remember the last time we had a crepe. However, we went to Veg after the theater and we were in heaven. We had a fantastic meal and the summer crepe was so delicious. Made with chick pea flour and thin as only a crepe can be, filled with summer veggies. The peach cobbler was also wonderful. In addition, there is a vanilla, cocoa and chili pepper--the Diabla tea that is disarmingly delicious--that touch of chili pepper creating a kick. We were served by a charming and charismatic young woman named Soul--a perfect name to complement her personality. I definitely recommend this place.

Pros: Friendly and compassionate wait staff, Delicious Food , Yummy Breakfast Items

funky place with great food - Edit

Look for the green front door of Veg's and then make your way to the 2nd floor. You'll find a cute place with great food and what has to be the world's friendliest staff. While the food menu doesn't have a large number of choices, the beverage menu more than makes up for it. Spouse and I were both pleased with our food, although like several reviewers have pointed out, the portions will never be referred to as huge. Veg consists of 3 interconnected rooms, each with a slightly different feel. It's an extremely clean place and the service is prompt. Unlike so many restaurants, the background music was not overwhelming.
There is one restroom that was clean and well stocked. I can see where parking on a weekday might be a challenge, but Veg is worth searching for a spot.

Pros: tasty food, friendly, helpful staff, neat and tidy

Cons: limited menu choices

This place is awesome. - Edit

This is the perfect restaurant to bring friends and family to (somehow I always end up here with my parents). Their food is delicious and the staff is always helpful and friendly.

Always Delicious! - Edit

The food at Veg is always fresh and delicious! I highly recommend everything, but especially the soup and salad combo (The soup-of-the-day and kale salad are always wonderful!), the pulled jack sliders (Yum!!!!), and the chocolate pudding (rich and decadent!). The atmosphere is open, airy and casual with a delightfully hip Midtown feel.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly staff, Nice atmosphere

Delicious food, lovely atmosphere - Edit

We had an early dinner here tonight after a long day of driving. We started with a vegetable noodle soup that was slightly thickened with butternut squash. The thick, curly noodles and Thai/Indian seasoning made it special. We then shared the vegetable curry of the day and a warm aloo gobi salad, each of which had a perfect blend of complex spices. We shared a bread pudding topped with vanilla bean gelato and coconut whipped cream for dessert. It was exquisite! The atmosphere was peaceful, and the service was attentive. Our server even noticed that I had put my jacket over my shoulders and immediately went to close the window near us. We have been vegans for a long time and we've eaten in many vegan restaurants. This place is definitely a cut above the average, with creative food, friendly service, and reasonable prices. Everything on the menu is vegan except for one dish that has an (optional) fried egg on top.

Pros: Delicious food - a Thai/Indian mix, Friendly, attentive service, Light and peaceful ambiance

Cons: Portion size could be a bit larger

Vegan Options - Edit

This place has amazing vegan options. I took my family here and we all had different dishes and enjoyed them. I had the falafel burger and absolutely loved it! The service was exceptional and the vibe in the cafe was really cool. I really liked this spot and hope to come back next time I'm in Sacramento.

Pros: vegan options, friendly staff

Clean, Fresh, Delicious - Edit

This place is great, everything was perfect. Clean, fresh, delicious food. Portions are not so big.

We went there for dinner with friends.
We ordered the kombucha (amazing!), crepe with veggies and coconut milk sauce and falafel burger, and our friends the pumpkin seasonal soup and almond chocolate pudding - everything was fresh and delicious.

Our server told us everything on the menu is vegan, but their menu is seasonal, so always ask about the vegan items.

Will definitely go back!

Bright and Beautiful - Edit

My favorite interior for downtown lunch spots. Great decor and lots of light. The food was excellent with special mention for the sweet potato chips and ginger guacamole. Really liked the falafel burger too. Great coffee drinks finished off our meal including easy substitution of nut milks. This place is a fav lunch spot but due to their growing popularity, and small number of staff, weekday lunchtimes can sometimes involve a bit of patience. If you aren't in a hurry and don't mind asking for things more than once, you're sure to be pleased. Hoping they staff up a little as popularity solidifies.

Great Sunday Bruch - Edit

Excellent restaurant. The Sunday Brunch menu was entirely vegan except one item because it had a fried egg on top. I had the curry plate with a yummy cashew/coconut milk cream sauce. The sevice was excellent. Nice space too with sunlight coming in through the windows. The restaurant is on the second floor above the Thai restaurant. I am going back to try their lunch menu.

Good food at reasonable prices! - Edit

We stopped by Veg, expecting food similar to Baagan in Rocklin (another restaurant featuring ayurvedic food). We thought the food was quite different and better than the other place in Rocklin. The aloo tikki (potato cakes) were well flavored and accompanied by a zingy sauce; the sangria was light and great for our hot Sacramento summer days. The veggie crepe had good flavors and a little spice; the falafel burger was just as tasty as Mother's nut burger but didn't fall apart on you. All of our food was vegan and all of it was delicious. Can't wait to go back!!!

Pros: All vegan entrees and appetizers for two, Reasonably priced, Unabashedly vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free

Cons: Parking on weekend nights could be tough
