This is a fantastic place for breakfast or lunch. So many great options, all delicious. And the service is absolutely wonderful. Great for vegetarians.

I have lived here in the Village for two years now. During that time i have found what i like and what i don't. As breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I already have three places that I love I felt no need to ever explore and run the risk of disappointment. I pass Naked Cafe often... More

I met some friends here for lunch. It was mt first time, although my friend had recommended the one in Salano Beach a long time ago. The service was excellent. The hostess was very accommodating and we got a perfect table outside. The waitress was also very good and checked with us several times to see if we needed anything... More

Laid back atmosphere and very friendly staff. Excellent vegan options and their house iced tea was great. Wish I had more time in town to return.

Everything about The Naked Cafe is done right. Service is exceptional, the menu is diverse and full of health-conscious options, and the coffee/espresso is terrific! The "Hammerhead" (their version of a "red-eye") is wonderful as are the lattes. The "tree-hugger" pancake (whole grain with coconut and mango) might be the best pancake I've ever tried. All of the breakfast options... More

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
