Bar Bombon is food for life. All of our dishes are made with plant-based ingredients. No animal products are used. And since homemade tortillas still make a better taco, we make them the old way, like abuela did.
¡Buen provecho!

It was my first time at a Vegan restaurant and I must say that I was a little Skeptical that the flavors associated with traditional Puerto Rican food would prevail .... BOY WAS I WRONG !!! THE FOOD ... THE PRESENTATION .... THE FLAVOR AND SPICES ALL ON POINT !!!

The only disappointment was having a reservation and still waiting 40 minutes to be seated.

My wife and I went to this fantastic spot for a date night last weekend. We were intrigued by the concept of a tappas spot serving all plant-based food, and it did not disappoint. The place is small, so I'm thankful we made a reservation, but we were seated right away and the waiter greeted us quickly. We both had a couple of blood orange margaritas that were quite tasty. We ordered a good amount of food and every morsel was delicious. It's easy to forget you're eating a vegan meal, not that there's anything wrong with that. It's just a wonderful culinary experience - regardless of cuisine type. The Philly 'cheesesteak' empanadas were excellent, the guac and chips were great, the Cubano sliders were delectable, and my personal favorite - the buffalo cauliflower tacos - were mind-numbingly stellar. We will absolutely be coming back in the future. I highly recommend it for vegan and non-vegan alike.

Everything was amazing, the only thing is that it was somewhat cold in the restaurant with the front door opening and closing. Bring a coat if its winter!

Great vegan food and I’m not even close to vegan. Love this restaurant. House cocktails are fun but classics like old fashioned or martinis are not very well done. Minor gripe — this is a good restaurant.

We like this vegan place. Buffalo cauliflower tacos and sliders were very good, as was the guacamole and chips. Great location near Rittenhouse Square.

Service was kind of unacceptable. Food was subpar. The whole set up was off. Definitely never doing that again.

Bar Bombon never disappoints! The food is always delicious and the staff are so friendly. Comments to the chef today and our waiter Tyler they made us feel right at home. They have food so good you forget it's vegan. Wonderful bursts of flavor and great menu options. It's tapas style so it's hard not to try the entire menu. Nothing will keep me from coming back.

We were there for lunch, and had the traditional tacos, which I highly recommend. Both the taste and texture were spot on. However, for $14 a serving, it was a bit pricing for the two small tacos. We also had the chop salad, which was so good we asked for the dressing recipe. Didn't get it. Still, a very pleasant dining experience with helpful and friendly servers.

Food was great (except for the burnt cubano, which the manager quickly replaced) and so were our drinks, but it took quite some item for the bartender to get to us. To be fair, it was very busy and she was the only bartender. The hostess was also preoccupied when we got to the restaurant so we ended up seating ourselves at the bar. NBD, we wanted to sit at the bar anyway, but I also wanted to make sure that we were checked in, so I notified her later. She assured me that we were checked in, but later that day I received an email from open table stating that we missed our reservation. If you’re going to be open during a block party, please make sure you’re staffed accordingly.

Our waiter was amazing but overall the staff didn’t really check on us, then they gave us the wrong order then delivered food to us that was supposed to go to someone else.

Great little restaurant with various vegan options. Honestly you forget that you're eating a vegan meal, that's how good it is. Wished it was a little cooler temperature wise but i would definitely return

Cozy setting. Pleasant wait staff. Food very good. Cuban Slider was not as expected. Was on a hoagie roll rather than small slider rolls. Not particularly interesting taste. Rather bland. But Caesar salad was great as was the Cauliflower Taco. Fair prices. Wine selection ok, not outstanding.

Food was delicious! Drinks were great! Heavily relied on “fake” meat, I would have preferred plant based that wasn’t just fake meat, but everything was so delicious!

I was there for brunch. Food was great with lots of spices (not always hot, just lots and lots of flavour), drinks very innovative. I had the Verde Maria with tequila - first sip was on the sour side, every next got better. Then something with porcini mushrooms, rye and chocolate - as weird as it sounds, it was awesome! I enjoyed it and would order again. The ambience is unassuming, service friendly. I will come again.

Absolutely amazing! A table made up of 2 vegans, 2 meat eaters, 1 who keeps kosher, and 1 kid were all able to eat an amazing meal, enjoy fantastic cocktails, and be together. Everyone left full, happy and satisfied. We will be returning when back in the area.

Deceiving menu. The heart of palm ceviche was listed as a tapas entry and a salad entry. I assumed the tapas entry was going to be small and the salad entry a regular salad but when I received the "salad" it was the same size as the tapas entry, tiny. I sent it back because I said I wanted a salad and not a tapa. The waitress was trying to explain to me that both were the same thing. I explained to her that I expected a regular salad size dish and not a tapa size dish since one was listed under the tapas listing and the other under salads. The waitress gave me a lot of push back and I was getting more and more upset. Finally, I asked for a different dish and she went away. Then the hostess came to the table and asked my companion if he wanted a bed of lettuce with the ceviche. I interrupted her and said I was the one who sent the dish back. She repeated the suggestion and I stated that I wanted a salad size ceviche, not a tapas size ceviche and that a bed of lettuce is not what I had asked for initially. I told her that I had ordered something else. Upon leaving the restaurant after my meal, I said thank you to the waitress and hostess and neither of them acknowledged my expression of gratitude. Not a very considerate response given that I had ordered other food and paid for it without a problem. Highly unprofessional service staff. Highly suspect menu listings. Do not recommend this place at all.
