The best in its class

Fresh, tasty, healthful and inexpensive. Great wild salmon, tasty vegetarian soups, and a really good turkey burger. Those are, of course, my favorites. You will have your own. There are two Natural Cafes in my area one in Newbury Park and one in Westlake village. Both serve the same menu and... read more

This Natural Cafe, and the one in Westlake Village, are really the only places I know of in this are where you can eat nutritional, healthful and tasty food all at the same time. My doctor told me about it and said it is the only restaurant he visits. A specialty is fresh, wild salmon at an affordable price. I... More

Have been here a few times now for a convenient quick and delicious meal. Menu has lots of variety and some pure veg/vegan options or great meat dishes too. Mex is great and portions are good sized.

I enjoyed the natural snadwiches there. I was impressed with their grilpled cheese sandwich that had tomatoes cooked into it.

tasty, healthy food. a bit pricey, but worth it if you like food prepared from scratch and heavy on the vegetables. you order at the counter, then it is brought to your table. not the friendliest of staff, but the food makes up for it.

Our friends visit here often and raved about it. Fish tacos were good. Had lots of vegetarian to pick from. Wife had veggie pizza but was a little dry.

I like the falafel or eggplant. My kids don't LOVE this place but if I get them hungry enough, they will eat so I can get my way for once. If you are starving, get the spinach salad with the tofu dill dressing as a side. My fave.

I ate at the Natural cafe last night and had a great dinner. It was nice to travel and find a healthy place to eat that had many good options. I ordered a guacamole salmon that was delicious. The place was hard to find- it is upstairs in a shopping center. I would definitely go back if my travels bring... More

A bit hidden (entrance is at the back, not the side facing the frontage road and freeway), but plenty of parking. I'd describe it as a kind of a soup-and-sandwich place with a healthy leaning . Imagine a Chili's except healthier -- but instead of burgers, fries, ribs, etc, it's more grilled chicken, turkey burgers, vegetarian soups, fish tacos, and... More
