A great find. Delicious salads and drinks. The banana bread was amazing. Enjoyed local organic yogurt, feta cheese, and baked goods especially the banana bread. Good place to purchase organic produce though the selection is limited. Tuesday is market day and the selection is better. Get there early.

Two visits here while in town over 5 nights. #1 vegie burgers were a bit mushy but okay #2 the reason we went back,''cacao dream' smoothie, tasty dream of banana chocolatey goodness. Tidy shop with good menu & indoor/ outdoor covered seating. Dog friendly. Staff were a bit abrupt when I asked for the wifi password after my hubby ordered.... More

What a perfect place to have in Samara - they had everything we thought we would never find in Samara. Artisan baked breads, organic eggs, goat cheese and so much more.

Organic and specialty foods served by people who really care. Located in the Natural Center on the beach road, it is in the center of things in Samara. The new larger location is great.

Good food and juice, specialty organics. Somewhat expensive. The people are nice and they have some goods you can't find in the Super Samara or Pali.

Being in another country and still finding the exceptional organic products I have come to rely on is a real blessing! Angelina is awesome! She will try to get something ordered for you if you request it. The farmers market right outside Tuesday mornings is terrific, as you can place produce orders ahead on their FB page and pick them...
