Amazing food--very busy location.

The food here is nothing short of incredible. The only downside is that seating can be scarce and the line is often out the door. I really wish native would come back to palm desert, too!

Ordered our food on line to avoid the line. Picked up a salad, and a moroccan vegetable/quinoa dish to take back to our hotel and eat at the pool. Both very good. Portion are large.

Lots of delicious fake meat options here for the vegetarian traveler! They also have agua fresca in a variety of flavors and we loved the watermelon and also the lavender lemon. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable.

So glad to have found Native Foods Cafe on our week of vacation in Palm Springs. Neither my husband or I are vegetarian, but we appreciate healthy, great tasting food, and this place has it! Don't miss meat at all at this place! Check them out!

We were spending a week in Palm Springs and as always we found ourselves struggling to fined places that could meet our vegan lifestyle. We were given two or three restaurants to checkout, but only tried one until the day before traveling home. We have a wonderful Thai retaurat at home, but have not found any place that has a...

For years, native foods was one of our favorite restaurants anywhere, and we ate there a lot when we visited Palm Springs. We really appreciate(d) the creative and very tasty vegan menu and good service. We also thought it was great that Native Foods was expanding and bringing its vegan cuisine to new cities in the U.S. We now live... More

While I kinda miss the old days when dining at Native Foods was a wonderful, sit-down, candle-lit experience, I have to credit the establishment with having made a successful transition to an order at the counter, healthy and still tasty fast food alternative.

I have been going to Native Foods since back in the day when the talented Palm Springs based vegan chef, Tanya Petrovna, founded this place.When another company bought out her then expanding regional chain and turned it into its current iteration it was totally different and a lot less creative than it had been but the food was still tasty...

I happily discovered Native Foods while on vacation. The Classic Deli Reuben is really good. You wouldn't believe it's meatless. I also tried the Bangkok Curry, which was good but needed a bit more spice for my taste. The staff was friendly and efficient. Try the blueberry tea!! It hits the spot on a warm day.
