Earthy feel and look but good food

This reminds one of a college town place. Not slick and they maybe don't have all the polish of other places, but I like the food. Had the crunchy avocado wrap, made with some nice slaw. Fries were also good. They need a little help with the details but lots of people came in while we were there... read more

This place used to be horrible. It's a bit better but definitely still a low price establishment. If you want better Greek, Try Panini Cafe down the street.

The name of the restaurant attracted me, then, when I saw the menu, I was thrilled. Although not a complete vegetarian, I prefer eating veg meals when I eat out. The clever combinations of sauces, spices, veggies and grains, plus incredible uses of tofu and seitan (to look and taste like animal protein) were just delicious! They don't try to... More

Having been a vegetarian for 25 years it's been a chore to find a restaurant while traveling on business where my choices are not severely limited. Native Foods is the one place where it's difficult to choose because of having too many options. The mock meats may not have the right taste to those who regularly eat animal protein but... More

This self order cafe looks inviting and has a convenient location near the theatre. The outdoor seating area is spacious and comfortable.The food, looks delicious. The help is friendly, hard working and efficient. They advertise 'sustainable food' whatever that is supposed to mean? We ordered the nachos, which were attractively served, but tasted like cardboard except for a spicy something... More

Dirty, sticky floors, sticky tables, sticky ketchup bottles, looked like someone wiped there boogers on the wall at the booth we were in, so we went to sit outside and could not find a chair that did not have bird poop all over it. When our food was ready, we saw them put it up to be brought out to... More

I have found that Mothers usually has the highest quality produce and food in general. They clearly label a lot of their food if it's non gmo and organic. They carry a plethora of vitamins and nutritional supplements. They have an organic juice n smoothie bar... plus a great little deli/restaurant. They are pricey tho... but you get what you... More
