Have been here before for breakfast and liked the food so we tried lunch. The ginger chicken tacos were recommended and did not disappoint! Everything was fabulous: the rice was not dried out, the tacos filling. The passion fruit tea was great too. This will be a standard stop when we visit.

I love the coconut rice, it is to die for. All the vegan meals are fabulous! It has a great vibe and plenty of setting available.

If tattoos bother you, then beware. The food is great, but this epidemic of tattoos seems to be contagious here on many staff. They really should cover them up.

Wonderful menu with lots of healthy choices. It is the kind of place I would like to visit often and eat my way through the menu.

This place is in the middle of a shopping center, kind of difficult to find. Definitely a "vegan/healthy" type of place which is fine if that's what you’re looking for. My wife and I had the Yin and yang, it was ok, not great -lacked a bit of flavor. Our friend had the Strawberry pancakes and they were excellent, got... More

Healthy, non-greasy spoon place. LOVE the food and coffee. Been going to all the locations for years. Something for everyone...Outdoor seating at this location is nice. Service spot on but a tad slow...(could be chef's fault, not wait staff) JUST GO!

A lovely setting....that is all the praise i can give. One would think it would foster quiet conversation. The voices of dogs barking and children screaming fill the background creating a sonic war of who can be louder. No one talks quietly. It could be a high scale courtyard getting high quality food on the table. But at this place... More

We had breakfast at the Naked Café. It's different, creative delicious natural food. I had the beef-hash with eggs. It was actually cut up steak, mixed with their special herb fried potatoes. It wasn't what I expected when I ordered beef hash. It was different and much better.

If you are looking for a healthy and tasty meal for lunch in Carlsbad, this is the place. My wife and our friend each had a salad and they raved about them, while I had the chicken tacos. Also excellent. One warning though, its small and only is open to 2:30 so try to get there early.
