Lunching with a Vegan in Harvard Square

Best options? I like Z-Square, but I've been there a lot. And obviously Bartley's isn't going to do it. Eliminate the chains from your answer. Ready, set, Chowhounders go!

  1. Veggie Planet is a pretty good choice.

    1. OM, if you don't mind the high price tag.

      1. Veggie Planet is great for simple pizzas, salads and stirfry. I like the butternut squash pizza and the chips and salsa.
        Other options: Le's for Vietnamese, one of the Indian places, one of the myriad of average Thai places, or Darwin's or Hi-Rise for sandwiches.

          In a similar vein, they could get a cheeseless pizza at Cambridge 1 (wow, veganism is one thing I sure don't understand).

            Vietnamese and Thai would be likely to use fish sauce in a lot of veggie dishes, I would think. When I was a vegan, Veggie Planet was a mainstay.

          2. To what's been suggested already I'd add Dado Tea House - I think they have several vegan options on the menu.

            1. The recently re-tooled and re-packaged Rendang will probably have some vegan-friendly items.
