Delicious, healthy food.

I have been here countless times over the last four years. Rarely, does it not live up to my high expectations. You can order all a cart or a lunch buffet. Not only are the meals good but they have a nice variety of bakery goods as well which are made on site. It is great to have a restaurant... read more

We dropped in for a late breakfast on a Saturday. The setting is nondescript but the food is amazing! My husband had the Popeye omelette and I had the oatmeal. We shared an acai bowl as well. The oatmeal was cooked with lots of cinnamon, raisin and almond (or soy if you prefer) milk. Then it was topped with strawberries... More

Vegans and nonvegans alike flock to Mr Natural every 1st sunday of the month for their generous brunch buffet! They have the best bakery in town and have a great restaurant menu all day long. You cant go wrong at all!

Can't tell it from the outside but it's worth going if you like great tasting vegetarian food. Cafeteria style ordering. Lunch specials include a choice of main course and sides. They prepare TVP (textured vegetable protein) to taste like fajitas, meat balls, carne guisada, & etc. I took a carnivore friend there and he couldn't tell the difference until I... More

I've eaten at Mr. Natural many times, and I have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the service is fast and good. I can't recommend just one thing on the menu, because I love everything there! And, try the carrot cake, too!

I was excited to find a vegan bakery as we drove by. So the place could have been average but because of how happy I was, it would've seemed great. Despite these initial feelings, I deeply regret having gone here. When I first walked in, it looked like a grimy health food store with quite a lot of customers. Looking... More

Not beautiful, but not pretentious either. The canteen style restaurant has seating inside and a couple of tables outside for when the weather is fine. The first Sunday of every month is a vegan brunch, costing $17 including a drink, dessert, and a crepe station. The food is tasty, though a bit too heavy on the mock meats/tofu. There's a... More

I love Mr. Natural! The potato flautas are awesome! It is a very casual place with nice people. I have had some of their baked goods and especially love the vegan chocolate doughnuts and cake slices. I ordered my daughter's graduation cake, and everyone was pleased with the taste who had not had vegan cake before. If they had vegan... More

This place surprised us because it was kind of a 'hole in the wall' looking place but had had great reviews for their bakery. we decided to try them for lunch. my mother in law ordered nachos off the menu and they were really really good. my kids ordered peanut butter jelly sandwiches off the menu, they took a long...
