I have eaten here several times. It is a great little restaurant with the most phenomenal vegetarian food. The staff is magnificent and the atmosphere has a very zen feel to it. Come here and you will not be disappointed in any way. Also, the Vegan cakes and the Hibiscus tea alone is worth coming for. They also offer different... More

Cosmic Cafe is funky, eclectic, spiritual, and delicious! This is a vegetarian restaurant. I love the Taco Trinity because of the variety of veggies in the tacos and I love the Portobello Trance. The hummus is delicious and creamy. The staff is always friendly and the owner comes out to say hello to guests often. The chai tea is really... More

I met a friend for lunch today and thoroughly enjoyed this little gem of a restaurant. The menu is extensive. There is something for everyone, even if you are not a vegetarian. I had the eggplant dish and the tomato soup with ginger. Also, the mango cheesecake. Very reasonably priced. Will be returning!

The decor is typically Indian as one would see in Cafe's in India. The food authentic, for a low price with excellent service. I met the owner who showed us around the premises and the services offered like various types of Yoga and meditation

Went here for dinner on a Sunday. The inside of the restaurant is pretty small and we seated ourselves. There was a guy playing Indian music in the corner which was cool. The menu had a lot of interesting vegetarian options. Not just the standard dishes you see at every Indian restaurant. I got the Buddha special which came with... More

I've seen some bad reviews for service etc. on this page. I've been here a few times and the service is wonderful, the servers are a bit laid back, but that is what the vibe of the whole place is about. It's a very relaxing spot, and the food is wonderful, it is truly unique in Dallas. A meditative Oasis... More

I was a little nervous that I wouldn't be able to find any good vegetarian food in TX, but a local told me about this little gem, and I'm so glad I went to try it! I got the lentil soup and a black bean burger for lunch. The soup was delicious and hit the spot. The burger was really... More

This local vegetarian café has been around for decades. I went there 20 years ago and it's still the same today. It is as good as it was back then. The stainless steel cups, the chai tea and the sitar player are all still there. The menu even stayed similar. Some of my old favorites were still available. Great for... More
