Went here on a lark after enjoying a day at the botanic garden. The only think we had pointing us was a hankering for a good fresh California salad, so yelp pointed us here. A bit of a wait in line, but clearly because this is the most popular place for miles. I had a gorgeous tuna salad, shared a... More

After days road tripping from San Francisco and eating a lot of crap food on the road. It was amazing coming to Lotus and have some healthy good food again.

Casual dining with healthy "fast" food. It's a great place to stop in when you're in the area. Well worth stopping. Outdoor dining available. Very pleasant atmosphere and helpful staff. Try it, you'll like it.

I LOVE the omelets here. And they have nutritional yeast available as well as loads of ketchup for the taking. It's a great down home spot and I go here all the time

The unusual Asian themed menu (no beef or pork, but chicken and fish) had so many varied dishes that it was tough to choose. But my wife and I settled on tofu scramble, soy bacon, and a chicken stir fry. The portions were considerable and the spices and sauces used definitely made the dishes tasty. But in the end it...
