The sweet potato chips were really soggy and bland but the yogi bowl was healthy and tasty

I chose Stem+Glory to celebrate my birthday with a small group of friends. The atmosphere was very cheerful and friendly, the restaurant was nearly full even though it is hard to find compared to other restaurants in Cambridge. We probably spent 30 minutes choosing what to order, everything seemed amazing, and it surely was! Mango cheesecake was outstanding and so worth coming back for! Five stars for a friends get-together + it is VEGAN and DELICIOUS!

I’d booked a table and although they had my booking, no table had been set for us so they cobbled together a few tables and chairs. Luckily it wasn’t full!
Then the seating - tiniest metal stools or if you’re lucky a really uncomfortable metal chair! Not ideal for a relaxing evening. Food well presented and tasty but lots of dishes were really spicy including the vegan burger. Why would you make a burger really spicy?

We do like the food at Stem and Glory and what they've done for promoting high quality vegan food in Cambridge but the Chesterton venue is unsatisfactory as far as ambience and comfort goes - we were there with a group of 9 for a very special occasion and were sat at the table with benches and plastic stools - not all that comfortable - in fact if i remember there are no chairs with backs in the restaurant. The acoustic is boomy so it can be hard to hear and we asked for the music to be turned down twice. We were there until closing time and the kitchen staff had to be told to stop being noisy with the crockery. And then when i got home, i noticed that everything i was wearing right down to my underwear smelled of fat from the kitchens (almost like i had been at a chippy) - perhaps an extractor fan issue? i haven't noticed that on eating there in the past but it was most unpleasant. While most people enjoyed their dinners (the lasagna and yogi bowls), my husband had the main-sized butternut squash salad and, on reflection, we should have complained at the time as it was very small for £12 and did not contain all of the advertised elements. The deconstructed cheesecake could also be reconstructed again as there isn't much of it. The young male waiter is excellent and they were relaxed when i called to say we'd be late. As they expand, i think they really need to take into account their clientele's comfort and overall dining experience not just the quality of their food. Could they not actually move to a better, more accessible venue now that they're so successful?

We visited Stem + Glory before going to a gig, not being local a friend recommended we try it out as she'd seen the menu online. We were blown away by how interesting, beautiful and utterly delicious all the food was. Such an interesting range of drinks as well, and so lovely to go somewhere completely vegan and feel totally at ease and be offered such great food options! Odd location but the restaurant itself was lovely and relaxed and the staff were so friendly! Will definitely be going back!

I had dinner with 2 omni friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food; the kimchi pancakes were a particular highlight. Service and ambience were excellent. We would've liked more choice of desserts - none of the options appealed to us, so we didn't order pudding, but I've had good desserts on previous visits.

Very friendly and attentive service. Sorry I don’t remember the waiter’s name but he had a wee beard. His colleague was also great when we left with our take home dessert- too full to eat it there but I know how good they are so was delighted to take it away.
Great food as usual - all except the sweet potato fries which were better last time.
Fabulous jack fruit burger. Everything innovative and tasty. We are not vegan not even vegetarian but we really enjoyed our food. Thank you!

Delicious nut roast and all the trimmings for Sunday lunch. Really gorgeous deserts. My family aged 9 - 49 all enjoyed the food very much.
It is not the most salubrious location (above a bike shop) and we did find the noise difficult, perhaps because we were sitting in the corner, but the food makes up for it.

Excellent food and caters exclusively for vegetarians and vegans. Not a huge choice on the menu but they also have daily specials on a chalkboard. The drinks choice is reasonable and soft drinks are really nice. The desserts are also worth trying and extra ones are also on the chalkboard.

We live close to S & G and have eaten there several times since it opened. On Saturday evening we took two friends who are vegetarians. The food was even better than usual, thanks to the new head chef Fran Winberg. The only downside was the heat in the restaurant which was pretty intolerable towards the end of our meal. In fact, we didn't stop for dessert or coffee because of it. S & G need to do something about this : installing an effective air conditioning system/unit would help.

Took advantage of their 2 for 1 deal on burgers. I've wanted to try their BBQ jackfruit burger for some time. My foodie son and I weren't disappointed. Starters were good too. AND great choice of drinks. I'd been before and had a delicious lasagne. It was my son's first visit and he was very impressed and wants to go again. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable.

Absolutely spot on from start to finish. Great portions, great quality food that was perfectly presented with friendly service. I couldn't ask for more :-) [It's all vegan, which is a major plus, but you don't have to be vegan to eat there - it's delicious and appealing by anyone's standards]
