Since I was to be dining alone I wanted to be able to eat in peace so I found Lotus. The staff is friendly and the menu is definitely healthy. This is a great place for people with dietary restrictions. I ordered the Cobb with ranch (no restrictions here!) and it was made with really fresh ingredients. Service is a... More

Just drove in for a snack to wait off the traffic on Friday afternoon and we did not expect that the food is really good! They have all day breakfast choices, sandwiches, soups and salads. They have vegan option too which based on the descriptions doesn't seem boring or untasty. We had the Carlsbad quesadilla and Portobello mushroom sandwich. The... More

Simple, homey, quality food and good coffee. If they could ban small children screaming and yelling and running wild I would be happier. Maybe they should have classes to train parents how to share a common space where people are relaxing. Hmmmmm. Way ugly

We went to Lotus Cafe a couple weekends ago with some friends while we were walking downtown Encinitas, I was pleasantly surprised with the menu and with how delicious everything was - it was impressive! You order at the counter and they bring your food to you, with ample seating inside and out. The outdoor seating is along the front... More

While eating here I have my 2nd turkey burger ever! I had the Beacons Beach Burger and it was pretty good but I still like a good burger. There is indoor and outdoor seating.

This restaurant was on our to visit list while we spent the week in Encinitas. Nothing on the menu excited me, but I was willing to give it a try based on the other reviews. I would consider this restaurant to be a "new age" Denny's: basic, bland, and boring but with a vegetarian flair. If you want to savor... More

Had lunch here today with a friend. We ordered the chapati salad, hummus (we substituted pita for fresh veggies) and coconut lentil soup. We dressed the salad with their tasty lemon herb dressing. The hummus was not smooth which was fine but it needed something more so we squeezed our lemon over it. The soup eh we didn't finish a... More

Have been back twice to The Lotus cafe. Once for lunch then for dinner. It's always interesting to try out their menu and have a smoothie. Everything we ate was fresh and tasty. It's a causal atmosphere with outdoor seating. You order at the counter and the food gets delivered to your table. If you feel like take out after... More
