My first visit here was the result of a cooking class experience my husband purchased for me as a birthday gift. BEST. GIFT. EVER. I participated in the May class. Chef Arthur is not only very liberal in sharing "secrets" he employs as an owner and chef at Irregardless but he's generous in educating guests about healthy eating and tips... More

It has been many years since I visited Irregardless Cafe, but it is still as good, no better than ever. I believe this was one of the first vegetarian restaurants although non-vegetarian dishes are served as well, A group of us went for their popular Sunday brunch, They only take reservations for dinner so we went early and were seated...

For a restaurant that claims Veganism, it's slim pickings (vs Vegetarian). The prices are reasonable for the portions, and the restaurant itself has pleasant ambiance. I've been here in the summer and sat outdoors, also for New Years Eve dinner (where there was only 1 option for Vegans on the special menu.) It's definitely worth a visit, and offers a... More

Took my client to Lunch and scored perfectly with her. She is a foodie from San Francisco and was delighted to discover this restaurant. I have never had a disappointing meal here yet.

We have been eating here almost from the time when they first opened, and have always had a great experience. The service, quality of food, atmosphere, and price set a standard that is hard to beat. We've sampled just about everything on the menu but trend toward the vegetarian dishes that first distinguished the place. Lunch, dinner, and brunch are... More

I have been wanting to go to Irregardless Cafe for quite some time. I was not disappointed tonight. I had the NC Golden Tilefish with saffron risotto and fennel and cucumber and it was absolutely phenomenal. My sister had the deconstructed Beef Wellington and proclaimed the steak was one of the best she'd ever had. My niece ordered the steak... More

Here visiting family and celebrating our son's birthday. Knowing that we are vegan they suggested the Irregardless Cafe. From the moment we stepped in the atmosphere was amazing. Live music, friendly staff, super clean, cool decor. Our server was super sweet and attentive. The menu, as described, has vegan, vegetarian and carnivore dishes. Locally sourced food. Beautifully presented. Will definitely... More
