There are many restaurants in town that make good omelettes and even more that serve gourmet coffee. But, Harrison Cafe, near the VCU main campus, is one of the few that serves both. Today, they served Rostov's Honduras coffee. I had an omelette with feta, spinach, and tomatoes. It was well constructed. However, it was much saltier than ones I've... More

I go here for lunch now and then and why? FALAFEL. Harrison Street makes their falafel perfect, crispy not dry, and not 'wet.' You can get the sub or the falafel burger, and add the salad because it's equally great! Other food and especially their breakfast-brunch egg sandwiches (or even the little soy sausage biscuit!) are great. AND the coffee... More

I had lunch here while visiting Richmond for a day. I was looking for a vegetarian restaurant. The restaurant is small and usually crowded at lunch time, but the food is amazing. I had a red lentil burger. When I took the first bite, I was amazed how good it tasted. It had an interesting flavor with a bit of... More

I've never been disappointed by this place. Their salads are amazingly fresh. The beer battered tofu is so good.They sometimes have a vegan mac and cheese that's awesome. You can't go wrong and somehow they are fast too.

Harrison Street is a VCU staple. A regular of students and faculty alike, the informal cafe specializes in vegan food. Order at the counter, food delivered to table. Not huge, so sometimes space can be an issue. Coffee okay (not the best in town to be sure), but the food is fresh, vegan, and well-prepared. I usually have one of... More

Seriously I would go here again and try something different than what I ate. This restaurant/cafe has such a Richmond vibe and a great menu with a fantastic variety of vegetarian dishes. I ordered an Asian steak sandwich and just wasn't to my liking. My friends ordered red lentil soup and a spinach mushroom feta wrap that they said was... More

This is a cool little spot for coffee or to grab a quick bite. I was travelling with a Vegan who enjoyed their menu selections. Friendly staff in this local VCU quick stop!

Loved this place. Cute, parking out front. I ordered a delicious, huge salad and lemonade, served with a smile. Going to get chai next time.

Had lunch here with my daughter, who is a vegetarian. We both ordered the vegetarian French Dip, and it was delicious. Way more food than we could eat--we should have ordered just one and split it.
