This is hands down THE best French Toast breakfast I have EVER had. I love that they are raising awareness about corporations that control the type of education children receive on nutrition as well. If everyone just keeps buying and eating meat and dairy than this injustice to animals and people will continue. Read "why do vegetarians eat like that" if you are interested in becomming one.
Okay, sometimes the service can be sketchy, but the food makes up for it just about every time. I've eaten most things on the menu, with the red curry being my favorite. My carnivorous husband loves the shwarma, and you can't go wrong getting dessert here. Vegan or not, this is high quality mostly organic food, for great prices.
as a veggie - needed some creative, wholesome food during my week stay in san fran in January 2005 - and that's exactly what I got. busy weekday lunch crowd, freshly squeezed OJ and senational food. \r \r I'm from Adelaide, South Australia, and we have no where near the choice for veggie places that San Fran has on offer. Wish I could live here!
I am not an Herbivoire fan. I've had better vegetarian at non-veg places. I think sometimes people believe vegetarian food should have no flavor- the food was bland bland bland. Skip it and gets some spicy flavorful somewhere else.
if extremely hungry, might not be the way to go, at least for dinner. this was the 2nd time i went there in my weeks visit, both times service was not great. When sat, we had to get ourselves menu's. Server appeared to be seating people, taking orders and delivering food. waitstaff nice, seemed aware that they were taking on more than necessary. 1st trip, food was good, however the service lacked/ not busy at all. second visit, food not so good - soup luke warm, salad came at same t...view morehe time as entrees- timing/food delivery poor. gnochi - too much pesto/ lasagna light on the sauce . we were never once asked how things were/tasted etc. atomosphere - music selection good, decor pleasant. sandwhich for lunch was tasty, dinner sandwhich not impressive, soggy bread on the portabella sandwhich. potatoes cold.view less
every time i go to herbivore, it take me forever to choose what to eat because everything is so amazing, and as a vegetarian, i am used to only a few choices. i recommend the grilled vegetable plate. its AMAZING. great place for a casual, mellow dinner. i go here all the time and love it. so happy it exists!
It took me at least a week to trick my boyfriend into eating here (he is a meat and potatoes type of guy). He was afraid of the vegan food, but now he is hooked. This is my favorite cheap eat in my neighborhood. I have loved everything I tried on the menu. Especially the ceviche, grilled portobella sandwich, and the coconut thai noodles. Even though it is a vegan menu, there is something on the menu for everyone. The only downside is a slow staff, but sometimes things can be sacr...view moreificed.......view less
If you like spicy vegetarian food with overpowering flavor, this is your place.
We had the ravioli and the lemon grass noodles. Both dishes were almost too spicy to eat. We asked for some coconut milk on the lemon grass dish and they willingly added it. But it was still overpoweringly lemon grass, which was unfortunate because it was loaded with a lot of delicious perfectly grilled veggies ruined by the strong flavor. It was sent back to be replaced with the Indonesian salad, which ...view morewe were told was mild. Got the Indonesian salad, it was good with lots of fresh ingredients, but still too spicy-hot to really enjoy the combination of flavors.
The waiter was really cool about all of the requests. Although, he did charge us for the lemon grass noodles, which was more expensive than the actual dish I ended up eating.view less
I love the food at this place, but the wait staff needs a lesson from Miss Manners. We ordered coffee, in most restaurants the server will come back and ask if you want some more, they will not scowl at you. It turned me off enough to just go back to the slow but polite service at the Valencia location.
