The best faux chicken salad in the world. It would be 5 stars if it wasn't for the clueless staff who take 30 minutes per customer.

I usually do not review "minimal hole in the wall" type restaurants however this is worthy of exception. We tried everything on BASICs menu and without exception we were delighted. This place is special and committed to quality food. 5 star.

Small little place but big on tasty healthy food a lot of Organic stuff which I plan to eat more of in 2009. The Carrot Tuna (Raw carrots with the texture and flavor of tuna) is something to remark on.

Try the Cream of Broccoli it's non-dairy.

This place has the best veggie burgers in philly! They are fresh and on a great roll. The only downside is that they can be extremely slow and I've had them screw up my order in the past due to language barriers. But the food is fabulous and conveniently located to the convention center in reading terminal market.

This is by far the best vegetarian sandwich shop that exists. We can not go to Philly without getting to the Reading Terminal for lunch from the Basic 4. We also buy extra to take home for dinner or for the next day. We also order the special vegetarian turkey for the holidays as well. If you are a vegetarian and haven't tried their veggie chicken salad on a pita you haven't lived!

Great meat reproductions. The chicken salad is awesome. The whole wheat rolls are a big tasteless, but everything else is magnificient. Try the iced tea with honey sweetner. Unlike a lot of vegetarian food places, this place makes an artform out of its sandwiches. So tasty.

Message from Basic Four Vegetarian Snack

Located in Philadelphia‚??s finest historical landmark, Basic 4 Vegetarian Cafe is the vegetarian connoisseur‚??s paradise, delivering delicious healthy renditions of American comfort classics.



Owner/Chef Alfoncie B. Austin opened the doors to Basic 4 in 1981 fulfilling a niche of delectable dishes typically unavailable to the health conscious. As a dietician, Alfoncie carefully designed each menu item to provide the 4 basic elements necessary in a meal: whole grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy and legumes (protein).



The store‚??s name represents the complete diet and caters to those who are conscious of health, the environment, and fresh ingredients, but don‚??t want to compromise mouthwatering meals. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices or smoothies refresh and revive; dairy free deserts like Sweet Potato Pie or Cheesecake are the perfect guilt free finishing touch to a hearty meal.



Basic 4 Vegetarian Cafe is the transparent staple inventing a healthy indulgence for the conscience consumer. Eating here will make anyone want to join the vegelution.



Editorial from

In Short
Because of its location (since 1981) in the center of the always-bustling Reading Terminal Market, everything at Basic Four is wrapped tightly for diners to eat at nearby tables, or for takeout to offices or home.…
