Great menu with diverse offerings and regular specials to take it up a notch. The serving staff is very friendly and everyone makes sure you have what you need. The place is tiny, so large groups are tough. But I hear they are trying to expand into the space next door which would be a huge win for Red Bank.... More

I'm not vegetarian or vegan... full on Carnivore here... and if this is the vegan food I was going to have everyday to give up meat, well count me in as a Vegan. The food here is some of the most delicious food I've ever had... as a Carnivore, you won't even miss the meat. Really tastes like food cooked... More

As a vegan what an incredible delight it was to go somewhere and have pages of options open to me! Good Karma Cafe is a cute little all vegan cafe in the historic section of Red Bank. I had the Pad Thai and the kitchen added seitan strips for me even though it wasn't on the menu. It was amazing!... More

With new vegan options popping up around the area with their little flair on vegan food, Good Karma Cafe is still on my list of preferences no matter what. I love the consistency in their menu and their food, and the specials they come up with are fit for the season and always something creative. Their big bonus that other... More

I live about 25 minutes away, and all I have to say is, I would be going here often even if it was 2 hours away. I base the majority of my restaurant reviews on atmosphere, and although small, it's a quaint and a relaxing café with just enough space and large windows to view the Red Bank streets. The... More

My favorite thing about this place is the salad and the dressings, which, for a vegan, are a rare treat (basalmic vinegar is all we get anywhere else!). The menu is pretty basic, with a leaning toward home made and whole foods (no fake meats or cheese). Lots of menu items have sriracha in them, which I don't care for.... More

My sister in law & I went to this restaurant because she had been with a vegetarian friend, and liked it. I was up for anything! And the food was really good! You definitely don't need to be a vegan or vegetarian to enjoy this cafe. SIL had the Kimchee Bowl, with brown rice, black beans, salad greens & Kimchee... More

I've had breakfast, lunch and dinner at Good Karma Cafe since they opened and they have always served very good vegan food. Tonight, the food was excellent. The Sweet Chili Tofu with jasmine rice and sauteed zucchini, cabbage and carrots were sauteed perfectly. My husband ordered the Mac and Cheese special, which came with steamed kale and tempeh on the... More

I wandered into this place thinking I might be able to get a cup of hot tea and found a full menu being served in a very tiny place. I walked out with a hot cup of the best soup I've ever tasted, Chickpea and Vegetable. Oh so delicious!
