It may be vegetarian, but IT IS NOT Vegan. So while they do have tofu substitutes, they also have eggs, milk, etc

vegetarian breakfast sausage! How is that not on the menu? Everything else about the place is just awesome, and I'm not even a vegetarian.

It is weird to have non working kitchen 3-5 on Saturday and not to be able seat guests in that time if restaurant is open (just cause of the servers shift change)

Service was not great. They are very nice and friendly, but our server left us towards the end of our meal and we sat there waiting for him (for over 10min) to come back so we can order desserts. Finally flagged another server and he then forgot to get us our dessert - and it was not at all busy. Like 11am, so just before lunch and they only had about 4 tables.

From Our Editors

According to founder Adam, Veggie Galaxy was born out of the quest to define the true spirit of the American diner. His fixation on the venue type began in childhood, as he whiled away hours sitting atop cushy bar stools and hugging vintage jukeboxes. Later in life, Adam became a vegetarian and soon noted the lack of meat-free options on diner menus. He knew that though sizzling bacon is often present at a successful diner, it is not integral to its essence. So, he built his own vegetarian- and vegan-friendly space that adhered to the guiding principle of all great eateries: corralling groups in and feeding them well.

In regards to the latter goal, Veggie Galaxy's vegetarianism is "an afterthought" to head chef Brian. Though every dish on the diner's menu remains herbivorous—and in the case of several plates, gluten-free and vegan—the kitchen's top concerns are taste and in-house prep. The restaurant demands everything, from the ketchup to the burger buns, be made on-site and from scratch, a standard which won them a DigBoston's Dig This Award for vegetarian and vegan food in 2011. As for the patties that go inside the housemade buns, they mold them from black beans and a mushroom-chickpea mix instead of beef, just as tempeh supplants bacon and seitan replaces steak. The all-vegan bakery abides by the same system. Taza's vegan, organic stoneground chocolate goes into savory cookies, and house-toasted coconut decorates layer cakes.
