Best Vegan Restaurant - Edit

Wonderful! So happy they are finally up and running. I go there at least 3 times a week. The employees are so great, the food is so yummy, and the owners are fantastic - so open to hearing feedback. They really do care about serving really good clean food that's good for us, the environment, the planet, the animals, and our souls. I recommend that everyone go and check them out!

Good food, small portions - Edit

I've been wanting to try Veg on the Edge for a while. During the soft opening they had run out of food so I was happy to go back again last night and give it a try.

I got the Shiitake Black Rice with tofu on the side. I wasn't sure if the hot sauce would be too spicy so they gave it to me on the side (it wasn't).

The rice was really good and I also loved the potato balls that came with the dish. They were like deep fried mashed potatoes.

While the food was tasty, I was disappointed in the portion size. I got a small bowl of food for $9.

Abbott Square is a new community space in Santa Cruz with several restaurants and bars making this a good place to go with friends who ended up ordering their meal at other restaurants. It was a fun, lively place to be but it was pretty loud inside. There is also plenty of outside seating.

Pros: Tasty food, Fun, lively atmosphere

Cons: Portions too small, Loud inside

Small portions, bland, long wait - Edit

Small portions, long wait with no explanation, bland non descript food. Frustrating experience having sought it out. Kids didn't like it.

Best Restaurant - Edit

This is a fantastic plant based (vegan) restaurant in the new Abbot Square Market, downtown Santa Cruz. I ordered the spicy tofu and fusilli noodles and it was absolutely delicious. The dish included Veg on the Edge's famous potato balls, a green salad, tofu and noodles and even tempe strips. Although the plate looks small it was a very filling and satisfying meal.

Thank you Veg on the Edge for a delicious vegan kosher meal and friendly atmosphere. I'll be back again and again.

Pros: Delicious Food, Reasonable Prices, Made fresh on premises

Excellent new place - Edit

Great food - all vegan (and gluten-free, organic and kosher). There's likely something for everyone, but there are also some very unique dishes (consider the "Moin Moin" - a West African specialty). The food is all made on site. As of this writing, the restaurant is still in "soft opening," so the menu is expanding with a new dish every few days.

In addition to the Moin Moin, I've had both the Shiitake Fried Rice and the Spicy Tempeh with Quinoa. All come with delicious potato balls or plantain fries. I also like the Raw Plantain salad and the Sweet Potato / Peanut Soup.

And there are fresh organic juices from whole fruit and/or greens. Finally, the date-oat bars are a great surprise - tasty and not too sweet.

Note that the place is in a food court connected with the museum in the heart of Santa Cruz. There are several other (non-vegan) establishments, including coffee, pizza and a beer/wine bar.
