“Wonderful menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

It was hard to choose from even the rather small menu of this charming vegan restaurant. The sweet potato fries were unimaginably good, and I enjoyed the kale salad. Portions are ample, I had left-overs, and the server was wonderful. This place is very high quality, no doubt because of the genuine commitment of its owners to providing an outstanding vegan experience to anyone to comes. As a non-vegetarian, I loved it!

“Simply an Amazing Place for an Delicous Vegan Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

We happened across this spot by doing a quick google search for vegan food, while traveling through West Palm Beach. It didn't really look like much from the street but once you get inside..you'll find a quaint little oasis, surrounded by lush tropical plants and almost totally outdoors. Sit in the little garden cafe if it's available.

The menu was extensive with many amazing options including a living foods sections, which I didn't try but sounded amazing. Our server was extremely pleasant and helpful and offered up an amazingly delicious meal. Try the Paprika dusted Sweet potato fries, which may sound mundane but are a revelation with a Super crunchy coating on the outside and served with a paprika "aoli"...

Darbster's is a non-profit restaurant, be sure to ask your server about it, It's truly remarkable.

“Quaint and Peaceful.”

Such a beautiful setting. They have live entertainment, a blooming outside atmosphere. The place is clean, the service was amiable. The tacos and nachos were fantastic! Every herb was tasted. What a refreshing experience.

“Great selection of vegan food in a cool environment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Darbster is awesome if you are vegetarian or vegan, or if you're in the mood for something healthy and different. They have a large selection of alcohol drinks that seem mostly organic and healthy, or as healthy as alcohol can be. I didn't have any.

I had the ancient forest herbal tea on ice and it was good. For an appetizer, I had the matzoh ball soup. The soup was nice, but it had a lot of onions. I love onions, but if you don't, you probably won't like this soup.

For my entrée I had the raw cheeseburger. If you are familiar with raw vegan cuisine, then you will know that nothing looks like it's carnivorous counterpart. This is no exception. It came on a very thin flax bread, which was perfect for me and very tasty. On the side, it came with a mixed salad with a delicious dressing that I cannot identify. I think it was a vegan Caesar dressing, but I'm not sure. I like spicy food, so they brought me chopped jalapenos on the side. That did the trick okay.

For dessert, I had the chocolate ganache cake. I feel fat now. It was scrumptious and moist. It had a thin chocolate drizzle over it and sliced strawberries on the side.

All in all, Darbster is a great place. The service is friendly and competence, and the prices are reasonable, particularly for a vegan restaurant.
