As close to homemade as you can get.

I've eaten at Mother Natures several times for lunch when I visit Saint John, and have always found the food to be fresh, and delicious, with stir fry's and deep pita pocket choices.

Fantastic food at a great price. I usually go to the Rothesay ave. location and have never been disappointed. They have the best "red rice" ever. The thing with Mother Nature's is the atmosphere, served cafeteria style, 50's diners seating and clean your own table. No fuss... just real food. You will leave satisfied. Oh yeah, buy a package of... More

There is a variety of food.Some already prepared such as lasagna. Stir fry's and salads prepared in front of you. Service is fast and efficient. Combos run about 10 dollars.

We stopped here for a quick lunch. I had the Greek salad and my husband had the cold veggie sandwich. They were very similar! The salad was nothing special, a lot of iceberg lettuce, but fresh, and it had a large portion of feta cheese and a few olives. It was on top of some pita bread (which I nearly... More

Great Place to eat & very fast. I've been eating here for years & i love it. I would recommend it & the spices they use are very tasty :) It's a lil over priced but worth it.

I stop here for lunch often. I'm a lasagna and Caesar guy. Cafeteria style but the food is sit down restaurant quality. I love the pita also. Beef and mushroom.

Mother Natures has the most addictive Greek dressing I've ever tried. You can buy it at the superstore now and I always keep a good stock of it in my fridge. Apart from that, the pita bread is always fresh and warm. The Stir Frys are so tasty and well seasoned. You always feel full after eating here but never... More

We had tried to eat at the Mediterranean Restaurant nearby but after waiting for over 20 minutes and our order had not been taken (and it was not busy), we were in a hurry so thought a cafeteria style would speed it up. We were more than impressed. One in our group was fasting for Ramadan and they offered to... More

Watch the 'chef' prepare your dinner to order or get an order of lasagna. This is canteen service with no frills but the price is right.
