Wow! Even my meat eating kids found something they liked. Vegetarian lovers are in heaven, so fresh, large portion, they don't skimp. Such friendly help, explaining the dishes. I almost don't want to post, I want to keep it a secret.

Another trip to a vegan restaurant with my vegan daughter, her brother and friends. Absolutely superb food, nice atmosphere and very knowledgeable and friendly waitress. The soup was one of the best I have tasted. I'd recommend unreservedly. Thanks

I just started a vegetarian diet about 6 months ago and I’ve discovered to my dismay that as a vegetarian, my eating options are woefully limited at most restaurants. Oddly enough, the thought of searching for vegetarian specific restaurants on Yelp never actually occurred to me, until faced with very seafood centric menus in Pacific Grove. Penne with vegetables is... More

We enjoyed our meal at Julia's. The staff was helpful and very nice to us. They play good old rock and pop from a very modern sound system. We are in our seventies and this is very familiar music for us. The food was very good. We had the mushroom and spinach calzone. EXCELLENT!!! They take great care with the... More

Pacific Grove and Monterey has now an exclusive vegetarian restaurant serving excellent mushrooms varieties which is a specialty. Additionally you could also choose Thai food if you have a spicy tongue. Great place and do not miss.

Great cosy vegetarian restaurant. Interesting to find that the owner hunts wild mushrooms for about 10h a week which he the cooks in the restaurant. Friendly staff. Unpretentious. Great service. Great restaurant in Monterey.

We found this place almost by accident, and kept on coming back each night for the of our trip. The owner/ host/ chef/ waiter, Anthony , was super kind and it has been a full experience as you get to actually get a recommendation for a dish from the chef himself. His great love is mushrooms, so if you are... More

We came here somewhat last minute and were seated even though we arrived after their last seating. My wife had a very specific order and the chef accidentally added some items she can't eat. Even though it was almost 9pm, he re-made the entire dish and even came by later to apologize for the error. We really appreciate it! The... More

Been here a couple of times and it's always great. Their winter menu features a delicious soup. Also roasted artichoke appetizer big enough for two. I ordered so much had no room for dessert. Must go back. The atmosphere is comfortable and the service friendly. I appreciate the easy parking too. Oh, last time I was there there weren't enough... More

This is a small vegetarian restaurant which was a little hard to find, but worth it! Since it's so small, it can be a challenge to walk in and be seated, but we lucked out. Hot homemade hard mulled cider was a welcome drink for a chilly evening. We ordered from the weekend specials menu. The roasted vegetables were great... More
