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!

Reserved an outdoor table and was told it was unavailable due to another party not vacating their table in time. We were told we could temporarily be seated inside to wait for our table or wait 20 mins for our original table. We opted to wait inside and grab a drink, but despite asking multiple times, were not reseated outside. Normally would be ok with a switch like this, but in COVID times not all parties may be amenable to switching to indoor dining.

It’s hard to rate when you aren’t able to be seated and served any food before leaving 45mins after your reservation. (While watching walk-ups get seated) Very disappointing all around. Will not get a second chance, plenty of other GREAT restaurants to try in this city. Good luck!

I love going here. I have a lot of vegan friends who visit the city and this is always my first recommendation. Even as a meat eater I find their menu very accessible, and the food is always divine. I had their no love lost cocktail and it was fabulous.

Went for our 14th anniversary. Bar Bombon is our favorite restaurant, so we were excited to be able to dine safely outside in their casitas.

The food is incredible! Best vegan food I've ever had but my non-vegan friends loved it too. The outdoor huts they have built are cute and well ventilated. Highly recommend!!

Love this place! I’m vegetarian and I love that I can order anything off the menu and I know it’ll be good. The outdoor seating is comfortable and safe with the separation between tables. The brunch menu is versatile and has something for everyone. It’s easy to build a brunch that everyone in your party will enjoy. The food and service was fantastic, as always!

We’ve eaten here 7 times since February and every time it is excellent! My girlfriend is a Vegan and I was initially somewhat concerned, because I’m a serious foodie. We had the best nachos I’ve ever had and I’m not a huge nacho fan. This is one of my new favorite places in Philly. I highly recommend it.

Everything was immaculate and beautiful! Ambiance would've gotten more stars but several people off the street tried to come up to my partner and I and sell us candy, etc. So that suckered. Maybe some security could be in order? Anyway, we bad a great time. I wish I remember our waitresses name - she was absolutely awesome.

We had an amazing lunch here. The lunch combo is a great value with a very generous portion of guacamole, and the chick'n club was probably the best vegan chicken sandwich I've ever had! Also had the traditional tacos which were incredibly meaty and so delicious! Vegans as well as omnivores will love this place.

Being visitors to Philly, we discovered Bar Bambon through a Google search for vegan restaurants, and what a fortuitous surprise! Such a welcoming special place with delicious food, kind and solicitous staff and thoughtful touches! We sat inside and it was dark, candlelit and cozy. Covid protocols were on point and we felt secure.We had a pitcher of the tangy grapefruit margaritas to start us off with some good guacamole and tasty Philly cheese steak empanadas with a zesty ketchup accompaniment. The cauliflower tacos were as delicious as all the other reviews promised. The plantains were perfectly caramelized, hot and delectable. Only womp womp was the Latin chopped salad which was a bit blandly dressed. Do not miss the tres leches cake, a real triumph! Our waitress Dani was efficient and had a lot of personality. I wish this place was in my town, I'd be a regular!

Food was very underwhelming. Little to no seasoning/flavor and the portion sizes are tiny, yet everything is overpriced. My boyfriend (23 y/o) was given a hard time when he wanted to order a drink even though he presented his ID. I have been a vegan for 5+ years and know a lot about eating vegan in Philadelphia, and this is the worst vegan food that I've had in Philly. Not worth going here.

I was recommended the Buffalo Cauliflower tacos and they were the best plant based tacos I have ever eaten. The black beans inside the taco is a perfect touch. I also had the Spanish rice which was also phenomenal. I will definitely be back to try more items on the menu!

First time I was disappointed here
Sent back main dish, gluten allergy issue and drinks were very off three times
Had to ask for drinks, and hard to get service
The table next to us seemed to have a great server though so I think that was part of it
After paying for
Tolls and parking , it wasn’t worth the crowds to get to

This was my first time at Bar Bombon, but it won't be my last. We got the buffalo cauliflower tacos, rice, beans, platanos, traditional tacos and empanadas and guacamole. Our bill was $73. I found the prices to be expensive for the portion sizes. It was $13 for only 2 tacos. The empanadas were $10 for 2 tiny ones......like less than half the size of a regular empanada. These were mini empanadas and should have advertised as such on the menu. It also does not tell you that you only get 2 of them. If these were full sized empanadas, that would be ok, but I honestly felt ripped off when I saw them. That being said, the food was good, especially the empanadas. I would go back again if I wanted to treat myself.
In terms of ambiance........it was a bit too dark. I had to use the light on my phone to see the menu and this was in the middle of the afternoon. It was also cold, but that may be because they were keeping the front door open, (maybe due to Covid??)

Server took 10 minutes to get to our table. I’ve been here many times and this has never happened so i think it was just an off night for her. Food and mocktails were delicious as always.
