Good Vegetarian Options
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!

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.

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.

It was our first time visiting. Highlights were the coconut rice, black beans, cheesesteak empanadas, and salted grapefruit margarita. The Mexican got chocolate is also amazing. The hearts of palm ceviche and ‘beef’ tacos needed more flavor - a bit of kick. The staff members were really nice. We will return!

This has to be hands down, my favorite vegan restaurant! The food was incredibly delicious, drinks were well made and unique and the wait staff was on point!! It was the first place I’ve been to where I actually said out loud, “why would anyone eat meat if you can have this!” FYI, I had the cauliflower tacos, amazing Caesar salad, Cuban club and plantain. All of these were amazing! Kudos to the owner and staff. Only thing this place needs is to be bigger:) Reservation or you’re probably not getting in.

While enjoying our meal outside, a man (apparently intoxicated) came over to our table and began harassing us. I was fearful and thought he might attack us, and I tried asking our waitress to make him go away. She ignored me and him. I understand that a stranger approaching my table was outside of the restaurant’s control or duty, but I did not appreciate that my waitress ignored my concerns. I am thankful that the man left shortly afterward and I did enjoy our food.

We don’t treat ourselves often and came here to celebrate our anniversary - and were not disappointed. The queso puts all cheese queso to SHAME! Everything else was equally as delicious and I was a huge fan of their gin cocktail (love at last? Love lost? I had too many sorry) it was the most refreshing cocktail I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to go back!

We took two non-vegan friends to dinner and they seemed a bit skeptical but by the time we were done they were sold. The server tried to clear some plates and one of our friends was like “NO we aren’t done with that”. Absolutely fabulous food. Great food that just happens to be vegan!

The food was great. The drinks were great. The server we had was awesome. The downsides.... it's a VERY small room, so if you're going on a date, go somewhere else unless it's ok that everyone near you can hear your conversations, and you theirs. Additionally, due to that closeness, noise is a problem. It's very loud, and that can be distracting.

This restaurant really surpassed my expectations. The pictures of the place didn't do it justice and I'd never been to Philadelphia so had low expectations of their vegan scene. They got this place right and it was such a great experience I had dinner and then lunch the following day. Reminds me of Gracias Madre in LA which is a favorite but with a different vibe. The staff were exceptional. The host staff deserves a shout out because of all the walk ups they politely deal with. Food was great, margaritas also great, service beyond great from front to back of the house. I'll eat hear again next trip 100%.

Food was amazing! Only thing I didn't enjoy was I sat at a table on the bench against the wall. It was extremely uncomfortable and I even had to switch seats with my friend halfway through because my back starting hurting so much. Food made it worth it to both of us to sit there, but next time we will definitely be asking to not be sat at one of those tables.

Food was great, if you hadnt known it was vegan you would not have been able to tellthe difference from beef and the vegan substitute. Staff was very accomodating after showing up with an extra party member and being asked to being moved outside. would definitely eat here again.
