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!

Just a simple and appreciated place. A short but always well executed bill'o'fair. This visit... a delicious lime vinaigrette-dressed salad with corn, black beans, avocado, and tortilla strips... Refreshing and so satisfying. And, a vegan blt... which all the right notes. A well-stocked bar, and an involved and accommodating staff. Whether you're Vegan interested or not, this Center City spot is a gem.

We hadn’t been to Bar Bombon for 6 or so months. Every bit worth the trip to Philly. Forgot how great everything is!!

I love this place, BUT this time the table that i had reserved for my wife and my date night was given to a football player and his entourage. Very disappointed that the manager was inconsiderate enough to disregard our night, to sit someone else. I suppose they were considered more important then regular customers. This will definitely alter my plans on the future.

New favorite restaurant in the city. Went twice and ordered different items and everything was great both times! The plum margarita is so good! The nachos are my favorite item on the menu. Would definitely recommend!

Vegan gem featuring a uniquely plant based, latin american inspired menu and full bar in a fantastic location. The interior is tight and loud but lively and fun. The service was friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. Some great veggie based cocktails. Dessert was delicious.

Cute atmosphere with great vegan menu. Mojito was too sweet. An hour after I left, I felt sick. Service was so slow.

Absolutely loved this place! So nice to have an entirely plant-based option that isn't too casual. Highly recommend!

It was fairly overpriced for the food. We both ordered tacos, which were fine but nothing special, and the fake beef stuffed jalapeños. Those came out deep fried in batter (not in the description) and utterly tasteless, to the point where neither of us could finish our portion. We told the waiter and he kindly took it off our bill, but overall our dining experience here was subpar. Maybe if we were actually vegan we would have appreciated it more.

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 !!!

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.

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.
