pretty much perfect - Edit

Went here twice last time I was in Boston and tried burgers, sides, and desserts. The Kendal burger was amazing. All of the desserts I tried were absolutely delicious, I highly recommend the peanut butter chocolate cake. The staff were amazing both times I went. The only negative I have is that on both occasions, the buffalo sauce was rather too salty.

Pros: amazing desserts, very friendly staff, awesome Kendal burger

Cons: really salty buffalo sauce

great first trip, can't wait for more - Edit

I've heard many great things about this place but hadn't gotten to check it out until today. I was not disappointed! I got the vegan mozzarella sticks to start. They're fun and I'm glad I tried them but next time I'll probably try something else on the menu. For my main dish I got a sandwich called the Rachel, it similar to a vegan Ruben except it has slaw instead of sauerkraut. It was delicious! Definitely not a low calorie or low fat meal but this is a vegan diner, not a health spot. Regardless, my sandwich came with a side of fresh greens. All of the staff I interacted with was friendly and attentive. I was also glad to see signs in front of the bathrooms in support of trans* individuals, encouraging them to use the bathroom of their identity.

Pros: friendliest staff, inclusive environment, great taste, comfort food

The good different - Edit

Feels like walking into a restaurant from the 80s (or am I watching too much of Stranger Things??)
Food was nothing like I've tasted before. I'm already in love with their ambiance. Service top-notch. What more can anyone ask for??
Vegan mac & cheese, and vegan floats, are just amazing..

Updated from previous review on 2017-11-27

Pros: Good serving size and value for money, Interesting range of tastes & flavors, Easy access to MBTA station

Great casual diner - Edit

The food I had here was great. The Reuben sandwich was probably the best one I’ve ever had (and I’m obsessed with vegan Reubens!) I also had their chocolate peanut butter cake for dessert, which was yummy but a bit dry. They have tons of desserts so it might be a good idea to ask what’s fresh. The atmosphere is very casual, like a typical diner, and it was very crowded when I went at about 7pm on a Thursday, although the food came quickly and service was prompt.

Pros: Excellent food, Prompt Service, Lots of dessert options

Incredible! - Edit

This place is a great addition to Cambridge! I never thought Boston had much to offer for vegan food, but this place was a very pleasant surprise. I tried the Chicken & Waffles and my husband had the Buffalo Chicken and both were great! We also had the coffee frappe and Boston cream pie. I have never had a vegan version of Boston cream pie and it tasted absolutely delicious! I will definitely be returning to Veggie Galaxy on my next venture to Boston.

Pros: All desserts are vegan!

What a meal...heaven - Edit

Extremely impressed with the atmosphere, food, and service of Veggie Galaxy (insert cool space noises here)

Not your typical diner, VG is modern dining meets old school service. Complete with classic radio, your standard bowling alley tables, and the ding of a bell every time an order is ready, they really embrace the feel of the restaurant.

The menu is what really blew me away though. A great array of breakfast, lunch, and dinner choices along with nice dessert options too. I ended up ordering the Chocolate Frapp with a club sandwich and a side of home made chips. A classic meal, all vegan.

The frapp was amazing, currently sipping on the last bits of it as I type this. The club was a perfect balance of "meat" and veggies, with a nice pesto to hold it all together. And the chips were classically sliced and seasoned. The sandwiches come with a side salad served underneath as well. My only hesitance was actually the salad. With a light vinaigrette, there's a great opportunity awaiting underneath my sandwich (literally). I'm imagining candied pine nuts or something else a little sweeter to balance out the savory of the chips and sandwich. Yin and Yang. Ya know?

Overall, very friendly service, great food, and a place I can see being PACKED on a weekend night or morning. Looking forward to returning soon!

Pros: The vegan milkshakes..., Great menu!, Very friendly staff

Cons: Side Salad was just okay

I loved this place - Edit

We had lunch and everything was delicious. We order a bacon sandwich, one of the burgers and a "taza chocolate" cake. All the desserts are vegan, the cake was huge and really really good. Friendly staff, cool place. I heartily recommend this restaurant if you visit Boston. Average prices.

Pros: Delicious, Cool place, All desserts are vegan

Oh man - Edit

This is such a great place. My favorite is their mac and cheese, but no matter what I order, everything is so good! Their pies are a MUST try. I have dreams of their chocolate cream pie. Visited quite a few times and will continue coming back. The staff is super friendly also.

Really disappointed - Edit

By the amount of food reviews I was really excited to try it. It was packed when we went in which was a good sign. My gluten intolerant friend had reassured me that their food was good (she got something odd the lunch menu , which is probably where I went wrong).
I hated it here. I got breakfast with a coconut milk chocolate smoothie. My stomach was in knots ( If you know what I mean) for days!!! It was over salted and nothing special. I brought a meat-eater who had not even heard of veganism and had him try my smoothie and he was scared to even try anything vegan after that!
(My trip there was December 2016. )

Cons: Salty, Gross

It's so fun going to places and being able to order ""normal"" meals but vegan versions. I had the Buffalo "chicken" burger and mozzarella sticks! It was amazing. Would recommend!! The atmosphere is a diner feel and it was so fun.

YAS - Edit

Unfortunately, I wasn't around long enough to order any real food, but the beautiful vegan bakery when I walked in looked AMAZING. I was proud to brag to my non-vegan family "Yes, the bakery is all vegan!" I had the vanilla milkshake with chocolate "zebra" stripes to go. 'Twas very tasty! It reminded me of Nadamoo's Vanilla ice cream. Loved the space themed aspect of the place! I would definitely come back!

Pros: vegan sweets, vegan treats... vegan EVERYTHING, op

go here, you won't regret it! - Edit

So amazing. Never have been disappointed. Note- If you are getting the vegan mac and cheese ask for a side of extra cheese sauce. It can be a bit dry without it! But super good nonetheless. The cheese sauce is so addictive. My favorite sandwich is the rachel or the bbq jackfruit! Favorite app- all. Especially buffalo seitan and the mozzarella sticks (vegan mozzarella sticks!!)

Awesome almost every time but also occasionally underwhelming - Edit

I've been here a couple of times and usually love it. Great breakfast (I got the stuffed French toast with tofu scramble and bacon, it was great), good donuts and outrageously amazing buffalo chicken sandwiches and "frappes". Only thing I've been disappointed by here was the burgers. I've gotten them twice and it's not that they aren't alright but they're a somewhat typical bean burger that kinda mushes easily and just doesn't do the trick. Other than that this place rules and I would definitely recommend it!

Pretty good - Edit

Food is good, but too greasy--like a diner. I enjoy monthly specials.

Pros: variety, all vegetarian

Cons: too greasy

Go here - Edit

You must make a point of eating here if you're visiting, or it should be a part of your regular rotation if you live in the area. Vegetarian versions of classic diner food, and, of course, everything can be made vegan. Tons of shakes and desserts as well. They also have booze. What more could you want? Go here.

This is a similar concept to the Chicago Diner in Chicago. I've only been to each once, but I might like Veggie Galaxy better. Maybe.

AMAZING! - Edit

This place is amazing! Great menu selection, great food, friendly staff. The mac and cheese is delicious, the pancakes are great, the mushroom chickpea burger is excellent. One thing I will note, the desserts are mostly made with coconut based ingredients. It is great that they are trying to avoid nut products for those with allergies, but as someone who doesn't like the taste of coconut, that rules out their desserts for me (and I tried three of them!). That aside, I would order more food instead of dessert!!!!
