About

Revolutionary Plant-Based Cafe and Boutique Brewery showcasing creative vegetable driven quick dishes, magical elixirs, and small batch beer made with unique and fresh ingredients. Located on Restaurant Row in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in a comfortable and eclectic atmosphere.

Kristin Messner-Baker and John Baker opened The Vegetable Hunter in June of 2014.  Kristin runs The Vegetable Hunter and creates the menu items while John teaches high school and helps when he is off for the day.

The First Floor of The Vegetable Hunter features plant-based comfort food in a casual atmosphere.  The Vegetable Hunter’s Boutique Brewery was added in 2017 which specializes in 100% plant-based beers made with fresh and unexpected ingredients. In May 2019, Upstairs at The Vegetable Hunter was opened which features delicious small plate vegetable dishes and creative plant-based takes on classics.  In February 2020, Brunch at The Vegetable Hunter was added on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-2:30pm focusing on sweet and savory creative plant-based breakfast/lunch dishes.

In their spare time, Kristin and John enjoy music, traveling, researching new ideas and menu items for The Vegetable Hunter, and spending time with their children.
