My friend and I came in from Connecticut with our babies to go to the Children's Museum of Manhattan, right around the corner from Peacefood. We brought our two whiny, hungry babies into the Cafe and we were greeted warmly, and our server could not have been nicer. Sitting right across from us was an actor who is about to be nominated for an Academy Award, and we were treated with just as much kindness and attention as his table. The vegetable plate starter was clean, crisp, and the squash (both chayote and acorn) had a depth of flavor that was simple and light. I had the seitan panin which was a slight bit salty for my taste, but the panko crust was crisp and light, and the homemade foccacia bread was substantial and perfectly toasted. I had a light, tart, and not too sweet lemon cake for dessert and brought home yummy chocolate dipped macaroons for the husband, while my friend's Blondie was just "YUM!!!". Our babies made a holy racket and left a terrible mess but everyone in the Cafe (patrons and waitstaff) was pleasant, happy, and very accommodating. I will definitely be returning next time I go to CMOM!

Just ordered delivery from Peacefood the other night. It came very promptly! Both soups we ordered were delicious. The salad - fluffy quinoa - was a little chintzy on the quinoa and also there was no avocado (which the menu said it should have). Tasted great overall - but the quinoa/avocado shortage made it less than filling. The chickpea fries were delicious - even survived the delivery with some good crispness, however I bet they are even more delicious order in the restaurant. The bottom line - I found Peacefood to be a great new vegetarian option on the UWS. One suggestion Peacefood: please consider ditching the plastic takeout containers for the paper ones and using biodegradable cutlery.

I've been here several times now and tried several items on the menu. Everything was fresh and delicious. I was surprised at how filling the meals were. I could not finish the chick pea fries which were so good. I just tried the veggie tempura - yum. The soups are absolutely the best around. I haven't had better here in the City. Best of all are the pastries. Cupcakes, brownies, etc. Fast becoming my neighborhood favorite.

Being a vegan, I was thrilled to stumble upon this new little gem. The food is delicious and healthy vegan. I just had a cinnamin bun the other day. Amazing. The food is fresh and well-prepared. Try the chick pea fries and the curry soup. OMG. The best. The service needs some polishing but they are brand new so that will improve. Best part of all is that not one animal suffered for your meal. Isn't that enough to want to eat there!?

I really, really wanted to like this place. I've been 3 times and live in the hood. the service is...bizarre. There are plenty of people working there, but it's slow. And they cant seem to decide if they want to be an order at the counter place, or have wait service. It doesnt work. On to the food. sigh...it could be so much better. Went there the first time - great. the 2nd two time, shall we say, I lost my lunch. so. yeah. I'm done. too bad. the UWS does need a decent veg place

I do agree with many of these reviews; the service needs work. However, it's a new restaurant, and it's doing a great job with vegan food - I've taken many non-vegans there and they've been thrilled by the food. However, to the gentleman that commented below me - do you understand the concept of counter service? Before you review this place too harshly, did you take a minute to look around the place? They feature counter service, so if you'd been sitting at a table for a while without food, perhaps it's because you didn't order it yourself. This is supposed to be a place to get great, healthy, whole foods, not a place where you're supposed to be wined and dined. While I do agree that they have some things to work out as far as their service goes.. st's casual, and, well, get over yourself.

Sorry I can't review the food. After sitting down and being ignored for seven minutes I left.
