Wonderful place for healthy food at reasonable prices! They have a good variety to choose from. I enjoy their salads, but I mix it up a bit sometimes with a stir fry with brown rice and vegis or one of the specials! I've never had a bad meal at the Natural! Everything is tasty and fresh and natural of course!

One of the few natural food cafes in Goleta. I always have a delicious healthy meal here. Located in Old Town Goleta. Great for lunch.

You order at the counter and they bring your food to you. The food is on the healthier side but you can still get some delicious food. The prices are a little high, at least for a college student but its not expensive.

We've eaten here several times when visiting our daughter who is a student at UCSB. The food is on the healthy side and reasonably priced. The staff is pleasant and the place has a relaxing atmosphere. Nothing fancy, just a reliably good spot for lunch or dinner. We all love the grilled vegetables here.

We love this place. The smoothies were all fruit. The grilled veggie sandwhich was piled high with fresh, perfectly seasoned ingredients. Not fancy, reasonably priced, easy to find/park, and pleasant staff. We liked it 15 years ago when we lived in the area. And like it just as much now when we visited.

If you want healthy food this is the place. Sometimes things are a bit overdone, but the quality is good. My Portobello mushroom sandwich had so many things in it that the mushroom flavor was a bit overwhelmed, but it was good. And the humus appetizer is big enough for an entree -- it comes with sprouts, shredded cabbage and... More

Vegetarian chili was nothing to brag about (very bland, served lukewarm so that cheese on top did not even melt). Sauteed tofu and vegetables were pretty good. Vegetables could have used a touch more cooking. I like that crisp but they were almost raw. Kids like their pizza and veggie burgers and ate so much of my tofu that I... More

On the way back from Santa Barbara Toyota we stopped in for dinner, 3 of us. My daughter had the dinner special from the specials board. It was a plated meal with 2 slices of really good garlic bread with melted cheese all over it, pasta with a red sauce from sundried tomatoes & pesto, & game with a green... More

On the final night of a five-day pleasure/business trip to Central California, my son and I were seeking a restaurant that would give us a feel for what we and much of the rest of the country thinks that stereotypical California cuisine is all about. What better model of that impression than the Natural Café and Juice Bar in Goleta... More

Had dinner here as I just wanted reliable, fresh, quality food and was not concerned with setting. This location is on the main street in Goleta, and it's well lit, clean, and welcoming. The service was very friendly and helpful at all times. I asked for advice on whether to have the wild caught salmon or turkey burger, and the... More
