Run by the Vegetarian Planet cookbook author

Welcome to Veggie Planet, where Vegetarian Planet cookbook author Didi Emmons and co-owner Adam Penn serve inventive and healthy meat-free pizzas and meals on rice in the heart of Harvard Square. Also made on premises are salads, soups, and desserts. It is a restaurant by day, and a top flight restaurant/folk music club by night (Club Passim). However, there is also seating available for non-club diners to eat during evening performances. Take-out is popular, as the food is cooked in a speedy ecological oven. The dough is completely organic and is made by the Haley House, a non-profit bakery in Boston's South End. Veggie Planet donates 2% of its food profits and 100% of its t-shirt profits to Food For Free, a non-profit organization helping to feed the hungry in Cambridge and surrounding areas.

Sunday Brunch served from 11:00 A.M. to
3 P.M. featuring live music and lots of great vegetarian and vegan food. Stop by for brunch, lunch, dinner, and experience how creative and delicious vegetarian food can be.

This would be FAR better IF it COULD BE 100% vegan, and I would urge Adam Penn to do just that with Veggie Planet (and not drag his heals).

What vegan food they DO serve is 'very delicious' AND most modestly priced and VERY ample in quantities and the speed with which the fresh food is served. Most of their food is organically grown.

We hold our monthly Boston Vegan Meetups there on the 1st Saturday of EACH month (read 'most' or nearly all months).

Service is USUALLY quite good! With a little negotiating, they'll 'leave us alone' long enough for us to have a long social meeting without buying too terribly much food.

The brunch is amazing. You must try the tofu scramble if you go, it's the best I've had in a restaurant (and I have sought out tofu scrambles across the country and internationally). The dinner is mediocre. I did not care for the curry dish I ordered or the veggie stir fry that my husband had (he didn't like it either). They are apparently known for their pizzas, which I have not tried. Brunch is more enjoyable because there is plenty of tables. At night, the large dining room is reserved for people who buy tickets for the music. Otherwise, you have to eat at really tiny tables on stools. It's very uncomfortable.
