This was my first visit. Our server told us the menu was new, so I don't know what it was like before but I was impressed with the variety of options. Everything can be made vegan, which is awesome. I had fried pickles and the seitan "chicken" and waffles and loved it all. I tried the mushroom gravy and didn't... More

The Veggie Galaxy looks like an "old fashioned" diner, which I loved! The menu was huge, there were things on there that I didn't know existed in the vegetarian/vegan world!! I couldn't decide what to order, since I would have wanted to try everything on the menu. This was my first time going to an all vegetarian/vegan restaurant. I cannot... More

My daughter, a six-year vegetarian, insisted that we have lunch at Veggie Galaxy. She was disappointed that it wasn't Monday evening, because her favorite is served only then: the vegetarian meatball sub. Her mother, half Sicilian, makes phenomenal meatballs, and my daughter says the only meat dish she misses is those meatballs--and Veggie Galaxy makes meatless meatballs that equal her... More

Yes...I think that's the best word, surprising and good. Great fried pickles, omelette, french toast. A tremendous variety of options that I think can satisfy everyone, even a non-vegetarian like myself. What I also liked - funky atmosphere, very friendly wait staff. There can be a long wait though. Would certainly go back again!

Last evening a group of 8 had a fun dinner out at Veggie Galaxy. the place is bright, cheerful, clean and looks like a 50's diner. the menu is varied- salad, burgers and dinner entrees. Lots of choices with good portions. the "reuben" sandwich was outstanding as was the spaghetti and meatballs. The chicken and waffles were OK- the "chicken... More

I had breakfast for lunch! The biscuits and gravy were really good! I also had ice cream for desert and that was amazing too.

Was expecting it to be great based on reviews, and it always looked so cool walking by, but it wasn't great. The sandwiches are overpriced, they claim to come with field greens plus your choice of another side. There were two tiny leaves of greens that looked like they accidentally fell on the plate, and that was the "field greens."... More

My fiancé and I were in Boston for a short getaway and checked reviews for vegan food. Veggie Galaxy exceeded our expectations! She had amazing Rueben seitan and I had mushroom chickpea burger. Great atmosphere and wonderful food. Very retro!
