If you're a vegan, it's nice to have "fake" meals sometimes and this is the place to do it. Fake nachos and burgers, buffalo flavored cauliflower with fake blue cheese. Good atmosphere and friendly service.

One of our favorite places that we have gone to for many years, probably well over 20 years, in 3 different locations. We aren't close, so it is an event that we find a way to get there a few times a year. This is our least favorite decor of the 3 locations, but we go for the food so... More

It's Only Natural has been an Mecca of sorts for vegetarians and vegans alike in Middletown for many years for a good reason. They deliver innovative, delicious vegetarian and vegan meals every day. Staff is very friendly, and everything from their soups to specialty sodas and desserts delivers full of flavor.

Charming interior, but desperately needs better lighting. There's a limit to ambiance. Very good food although it would be nice to see a new menu once in a while because specials are not something a person can count on. The location is sketchy as far as feeling safe. Overall, I would gladly go back, it would just be during the... More

I used to LOVE this restaurant and have seeked itout every time they moved. As a long time vegetarian, I appreciate the creativity and the freshness of the dishes prepared by the owner/chef. My friends and I decided to try the newest location at 606 Main Street. After walking for blocks, we finally located the restaurant and settled in for... More

Looks fun. IS fun. Food is GREAT! This is a surprise hit of Middletown. It seems like a fun, relaxed hang in a college town. It is. It is ALSO a superb vegetarian/vegan restaurant with a sublime selection of food and beverages. We were all thrilled with our meals. Great, inventive selections. I look forward to returning!

We ate at ION on a Sunday around 12:30pm. We had always wanted to eat here, as we like vegetarian/vegan restaurants. Unfortunately, it wasn't a good experience. First, the restaurant was uncomfortably warm. It was a 90 degree day outside, and it was probably in the low to mid 80's inside. First problem was that almost everything on the menu,... More

Found this on Trip Advisor. Nice decor. Friendly service. Interesting menu. Started with a lemonade. Good. Had the fresh spring rolls. Tasty treat to start ... Two spring rolls on the plate. For $10 there should have been three ... My opinion. Moved into the potato spinach pierogi. Nice dish. Sautéed greens were really good. Other interesting items on the... More

Decided to visit this restaurant based on some online reviews and it did not disappoint! It is a little pricey since it is scratch cooking with super fresh ingredients, but this is one of the best meals I have had all year. The staff was very friendly and we loved the atmosphere. They have specials everyday, so there is always... More
