Description: The Grit is surrounded by thriving businesses. It’s filled with throngs of happy customers who know they’ll get a big delicious meal that just happens to be without meat. They know we’re not food snobs or health police. Only a small portion of our customers are vegetarian or vegan. Omnivores have always been fans, and we're old hands at satisfying the more carnivorous folks in Athens. They all know they can get freshly prepared, simple, wholesome food in generous servings. ontinually surprising people with how good vegetarian food can be keeps things fun, but often the surprise is ours. The level of customers’ devotion, the reach of The Grit’s reputation, the degree to which travelers and Athens expats tell us they yearn for Grit food, and the constant requests for our cookbook all continually surprise us. The Grit is small, but people keep showing their love and it makes us proud.

This is not a bad restaurant, but it is also not great. The food is okay, and the service is consistently slow. I'd recommend the Golden Bowl or the Hot Noodle Bowl, but I'd skip all the Middle-Eastern inspired items, which lack spices and flavor.

If you are vegetarian or vegan, you will like this place. Bohemian style place and food offers a good list of delicious meal and beer/wine. Staff are polite and quick.

Did not know was predominately vegetarian until we took a look at the menu. Decided to give it a try. Admittedly we did not know a lot of the ingredients but decided to stick around. My son enjoyed his sandwich which included seitan for protein. He thought it tasted really good. I had a salad with brown rice, pinto beans, veggies and chicken. It was good but surprising heavy. Service was overall good. A lot of options to choose from.

We had breakfast here, and the food was really good. Great omelettes and quiche. However, our server was slow and forgetful.
