Vegetarian fans of breakfast, rejoice, for you have found the temple of the tofu scramble. The Greek Scramble is my favorite (tofu, greek olives, spinach, sundried tomatoes, feta cheese, with a side of home fries and toast) but really, you can't go wrong. Dharma's also makes a killer tofu breakfast burrito Prices are a little on the high side, so... More

Dharma's offers vegetarian and vegan food. I've often thought that it's pretty pricey for a meal but the portions are generous and I always come home with leftovers. They often offer Groupons and if you sign up for their emails they send weekly $6 coupons to be used on orders over $25. On a recent visit I had the Bo... More

Our grand daughter is a vegan and she took us here when we visited her and her sister at UC Santa Cruz. The food was pretty good and huge portions. I also picked up and very cool t-shirt for $16.

Small burrito was huge! Vegan burrito was gigantic! Fake bacon BLT was enormous! People, you don't need to eat a huge serving just because it's vegetarian! If you are a normal person, get one dish and share it with a friend. The food is bland, filling and very heavy on dairy for the non-vegan dishes.

The order was wrong, the staff seemed aloof and without care, they overcharged me and did not properly apply the Groupon. My son who lives nearby stopped going here due to order issues (always wrong). They seemed to have egotistically overgorwn their clientele and service responsibilities.

My MIL prefers vegan, as do some of my friends (and you can tell I don't)..however, Dharma's menu seemed to have something for everyone! Four of us went together and everyone's dishes were delicious...I was impressed!! Definitely a go-to place!! (I also bought some artwork from their wall..)

This is a great vegetarian restaurant that is great for families, friends or time alone. The food is always excellent and affordable and the variety of dishes is extraordinary! If you are in the Santa Cruz area, this is a must - even if you aren't vegetarian!

All you skeptic carnivores, give it a go! My daughter is vegan so when in Rome... I ordered Bo Thai and she had Indian Curry. The portions were huge and I didn't miss the meat at all! I would go back again. Casual atmosphere. Counter order/pickup. Big menu.

My family all love Dharmas. We will drive for two hours just to eat there. Of course we are vegetarians and love the variety of dishes offered. I have never seen a vegetarian restaurant that offers so many choices. They also have vegan options on the menu. It is difinitely worth the price.

I'd be happy to have this restaurant in my home area so I could try everything that sounded good. It was obviously healthy and carefully prepared. I just wish the ambiance was better.
